Royal Pains “A Farewell to Barnes” Advance Review

Much like last night’s premier of White Collar; the winter premiere of Royal Pains also starts out right where it left off in summer, with Eric on the floor and Hank desperately calling for an ambulance. After that, things get a little serious, then a lot less serious, then maybe slightly serious again.

Called "A Farewell toBarnes," the name refers to a party a divorcing couple decides to throw for themselves for a very unique reason.
