When the attractive administrator of the local hospital asks him to treat the town's less fortunate, he finds himself walking the line between doing well for himself and doing good for others.

The writers need a jolt of creativity.
8 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Where have the writers gone? The writing is very monotone. The characters have lost there charm and creativeness. Bring back Boris and the wife. Bring back the charm and fireworks of Hank and Jill. Bring back the plot twists. The Hank and Jill fire has been extinguished and Evan's life is DULL. The last creative episode I recall was Boris and the poison. That episode was full of good, crisp writing.I hope this show is not turning into a "formula" show.I know there is only 8 episodes per season but do not wait until the end for a GOOD script. Last season and so far(up to 2/8/12) episode the scripts are DULL. Bring back the fire and passion of the old Royal Pains.
