after seeing damages i realized that i have developed a huge thing for campbell scott( joe tobin) it hasn't just cropped up, i absolutely ogled him in "six degrees" which thanks to these studios was cut short but i was sorta consoled when he re-appeared in "royal pains" as Boris. i dunno wat it is but he has this cool calm collectedness about him, he doesnt try too hard to be sexy which just amps it up for me.
Audience! its your time to speak up. Do you think the highlight of Royal Pains is the smart v/s goofy pairing of Divya and Evans? In my opinion they are what holds the show. Generally a romantic story arc keeps audiences interested in a medical-drama format and in Royal Pains, Dr. Hank Lawson and Jill Casey have definitely failed in that department. On the other hand, secondary characters of Divya Katdare and Evan Lawson bear the most significant ingredient of a star-tv-couple - they are different. Just like how Ross was the nerd and Rachel was the popular girl, Meridith was the twisty one while Derek was the normal one, like how Will was the gay one while Grace was just being gay too, the same way the apparent racial difference between this pair is what makes them screen magic. One is Indian, while the other is the average American. Their different backgrounds bring a new flavor to televisions most overused subplot. Where as the shows primary couple have no flavor at all, there's just no contrast between them. The directors have to do something to get the spotlight back on their protagonists or people are going to get tired of waiting for the next Div-Van moment. What do you guys reckon? will they make some changes next season? more importantly, do you people agree at all? USA network's Royal Pains is summers highest rated comedy-drama that centers around an accidental concierge doctor and his over ambitious trio while they tend to the rich and famous of the Hampton's. Airs on Thursday at 10PM on USA Network
It's so great to have a show today that's filmed on Long Island! I love seeing the shops on the episode and being able to say "hey, I was just there last weekend". The Hamptons is a great getaway place for anyone, really. And it fits quite well into the concept of the show. I hope that next time I go out east to the Hamptons or Montauk, I'll run into Mark Feuerstein or Paulo Costanzo. :)
i have used royal pains as an example but can someone please tell me how many episodes new shows like royal pains normally get ?
whats happened to Thursday nights viewing are you guys starting your 4th july hols early
this is the name of a house episode. this makes me angry. not that angry, but its annoying. they could TRY to be creative.
I just was wondering why... lol
Let me answer that for ya...YES!...oh make that a HELL YES! So here I am...fooled by the extended Promo and a man named Evan...who was the only redeeming factor in the entire show, into watching. So I watched...despite each passing minute becoming even more unbearable...okay, I dramatise but you get it right? It was BAD. I wish I could list all the reasons why...but truth is...there were too many!! But here's one... Lead Actor...hum...how do I put this...cannot ACT. And it only took me 3 minutes into the show to work that one out. Apologies for the Rant but when you've been deprived of TV...you pretty much take what you get...I tried that...but there's taking what you get and then there's rummaging through the garbage. Another thing...why does every Asian/Indian character have to British?? Are there none in the States?? All 50 of them?....but I guess they're ticking all the boxes there. Okies...*breathe*...well, I hope the other episode get wayyyyyyy better because this show wont make it past half a dozen episodes at the most IMO...unless it goes the 90210 way...
ok just watched the first episode of royal pains and ye i think its going to be a great show but will it last past one season before ppl get fed up with the doc doing the same thing which is just treating the rich of the hamptons
