Goofs

April's nail color changes inexplicably throughout the episode. During the scene at Boris' party and afterwards that evening, April is shown with black nail varnish. The next morning when she arrives at Evan and Hank's motel room, her nails are unpainted or clear. She is later shown inside the motel room waving, touching up her make-up, and doing other things with her hands, revealing that her nails are still unpainted or clear. However, when Devya knocks on the door, April answers it, laying her right hand along the door jamb and revealing that her nails are now painted black again. See more »

Interesting...

Kind of like House meets ER meets Nip Tuck.

I like it. I'll keep on watching. Hank is interesting and Divya is a welcome change to the bleach- blonde "accoutrement".

The medicine is sound "so far" and I love the "guy that got dumped getting a better deal" premise.

Most people would like to live in the Hamptons. Imagine having all of the wealthiest people on speed dial, in the Hamptons, paying you in GOLD BARS? Yeah...gotta twist my arm to get me there too.

His brother is annoying and the "falling for a fellow physician" is a little far-fetched but it still works. All of the eye-candy doesn't hurt either.

I hope it gets picked up.
