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.
