Quotes

Michael Westen: [crossover ad introducing "Royal Pains": Michael is narrating a letter he's written Hank Lawson, who's opening a care package Michael sent him] Dear Dr. Hank, I understand you recently lost your job and had to find a new way to earn a living in an unfamiliar setting. I know exactly what that's like, so I've enclosed a few things that might come in handy: sunscreen, sunglasses, and a block of C-4 because you never know when you'll need a stable plastic explosive.

One of the best
18 July 2007 | by godzillandgSee all my reviews

When I first heard of the show I didn't know what to think. But then I heard that Bruce was apart of the show so I decided that the whole family should watch. And so we did. And now I crave to know what is going to happen next. The main plot of the show is intriguing but individual stories are just as good. There isn't a flaw in this show. And so far all the episodes are very re-watchable. Which is probably the best part of the show. This show can be enjoyed by most but children under ten won't get the humor and the content is just a little over their head. So if you have children note that they might enjoy the action parts they will get board with the rest of it. All I got to say is watch it and fall in love.
