Trivia

Evan was originally written as Hank's best friend. Paulo Costanzo's physical similarity to Mark Feuerstein caused the change to them being brothers. See more »

Goofs

During Tucker's collapse, his left pant leg gets rolled up to his knee without anyone touching it (possibly due to an action removed in editing). See more »

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.
