I've loved Royal Pains ever since it started. I love that it shows how a doctor can go from being a high level er doctor, to one that has no job. It shows how he can figure out how to charge the expensive Hampton peolpe after he goes to a party with his brother and saves a girls life, and is asked how much his charge is for his service. Then to add in the way that he wants to treat the people who can't afford medical treatment with their jobs is a very awsome thing to do for people in this day. I love that he loves his brother, and has him do all of the money stuff for his medical practice.

I love the banter between oh well all the cast. The chemistry seems to be really great. I loved "If I were a rich man" I hope season 2 is as good or better!

I loved the hook...it's a guilty pleasure to watch the homes and lifestyles of the SUPER rich or rather wealthy

When I initially saw the previews for Royal Pains, I realized that it was a show about medicine or something along those lines, but I also saw that it didn't necessarily have the same appearance as others of the same caliber. After watching the pilot episode, I immediately realized just how extraordinary Royal Pains is compared to other medical dramas. Most medical dramas on television today have give the audience bits of information about the deepest darkest holes in the protagonist's, and supporting characters' souls, all the while presenting an arching story line that connects the characters lives, and how they deal with the turmoil that they live with everyday. While, yes, it may have some similarities, for the most part Royal Pains is unlike any medical drama(dy) that I have ever seen. It shows a tiny little bit of turmoil in the characters lives (In season one, Hank was dealing with being fired from the hospital, and ending his engagement, and this season involves Hanks relationship, or lack thereof, with his father, as well as helping save Boris' life) but for the most part, Royal Pains offers something that almost no other medical show on tv offers: happiness. Royal Pains is able to show its audience that yes, your life may suck, and yes, you may have family, and money, and employment issues, but when it comes down to it, there is always something, no matter the size, that can brighten your day. At least, that is what I see when I watch Royal Pains. There isn't pain and misfortune being doled out like chocolate to diabetics with a sweet tooth, there is a close-knit family of friends and peers that, yes, have a hard time dealing with life (and let's face it, in this economy, who isn't?) but are able to pull themselves back together with the help of the people that they surround themselves with, and continue on with their lives. So when I first watched Royal Pains, it wasn't one single moment that compelled me to continue watching, it was the entire show overall, and the messages that have been, and still are, being shown to the audience: that no matter how hard life is, and no matter how tough it gets, you are strong, and you can pull yourself through to the end, and if family and friends offer their help, think twice before turning them down.

"Ketchup is for dilettantes and three year olds" There Will Be Food really sealed it for me, I think in this episode the writing really came into its own, the characters became full and interesting people (plus I think it was this episode that layed the track for the problems of the rest of the season). After this I was hooked and couldn't stop watching.

My favorite moment of season 1 was I think during the pilot, when Hank explained the items he needed. A bottle of vodka, a very sharp knife, a bic pen, a sandwich baggy and some duct tape!

Compared to the other medical theme shows that I have watched over the years this one is very refreshing and its nice to have a med show that involves medicine and actual character relationships that dont revolve around who is sleeping with who. I love everything about this show (except for the theme song) and the best moment for me was when he realized was a spoiled brat his fiance was .'Ill see your postponment and Ill raise you." I knew from that point it was going to be a good show.

since the pilot! It got me when Hank says-- "Man plans, & G*D laughs", a very popular saying in my circle. .Then lol'd @ almost all of Evan's lines, especially in Brooklyn & @ Boris' party. The show's a very good mix of humor & drama

I was hooked since the very first episode as happens with all USA Network shows I watch. Suprisingly though - while I was hooked to Burn Notice the whole first season, it's the only one I've stopped watching regularly. My favorite moments are when Hank and Tucker banter or when Evan acts like well Evan or when Evan and Divya argue in an adorable way or when Andrew McCarthy was on... It's so hard to decide, the show is just hands down quality. Ezra Miller, Mark, Paulo -- love them all -- I hope Tucker is back this season. If I have to choose a moment for the sake of this contest, I guess I must: The pilot: When Evan convinces Hank to stay in the Hamptons and first introduces a reluctant Hank to Hankmed -- I thought it was interesting, creative and well written.

I was hooked since day 1. I figured since I love the other USA original series I'd give this one a shot...and it truly didnt disappoint. Mark Feuerstein really gives the Hank character life. I liked him from the beginning when he was trying to save the b-ball players life instead of the millionaire trustee. My favorite moment would have to be when after firing Hank twice, Tucker's dad finally comes around and asks Hank for help.

I love all the scenes that involve Tucker and Libby. From the first episode when Hank is called because they got in a car accident and Libby's head is bleeding. I enjoy that Libby's character assumed the worst and Hank didn't help teasing her about her problem with researching medicine online. We assumed that all was fine once we know Libby is fine then then we found out the Tucker was a lot worse. Hank to the rescue and he saved Tucker. We learn that Tucker's father hasn't been an achieve parent in Tucker's life. I could tell that Hank would play an important role in Tucker's life. I think I was hooked before I even saw the first episode. My friends were talking about the show and I was intrigued. I love medical dramas and the ocean, plus living in New York doesn't hurt. I went home and watch the first episode online and was addicted every since. The cast keeps me coming back for more.

I was hooked from the first episode. I think it was the moment when Hank was just sitting there and the movers were taking all of his stuff away. I thought that scene was pretty much perfect! And then we met Evan and I just fell in love with both of the brothers. I think the show has kept me tuned in mostly with the Evan/Divya relationship. It is a will-they-wont-they relationship all the way, but it works so funny because characters are just so well written! -Emily

My favorite moment of the series is the scene from "Am I Blue?" when Divya pretends to be Evan's girlfriend and kisses him. I think there's something between them, but I'm not quite sure what it is.

I got hooked from the first episode. The way Hank can just jump into any medical situation is amazing!

My favorite moment was when Hank goes on that private island with the super rich family and has to give the butler a transfusion and he makes something from household objects to match blood types. It was amazing how he did it all by himself and how the entire family was mesmerized and was so anxious to help out even though they looked so spoiled in the beginning.

Before this show aired, I hadn't really seen any previews, but the title sounded like some reality tv show, so I wasn't going to watch it, but I was talking to a friend who had the chance to watch it before I did and she loved it, so I checked it out and was hooked from the start. I just love the way everyones characters play off of each other. Especially Hank and Evan. And the story line is great! :) I love that Hank helps people just by using every day household items. It's really creative. I don't really have any specific favorites, but one of them might be in the pilot when Evan tells Hank there are two women in the bathroom waiting for him. ^^

I liked ROYAL PAINS from the first episode...and it just got better and better as the season went on. I thought the finale last year was especially good and I am looking forward to season two.

I think Royal Pains had a great first season, it really got me hooked. My favorite part has to be in episode 4, when one of the workers at the restaurant can't speak English and Evan has to translate Italian to her for Divya. The things he said were priceless! Can't wait for Season 2! :3

I think Evan's funny trying to be more important than what he is going up to everybody he meets saying he is the CFO of HankMed. I was hooked from the first episode.

I've loved this show since Hank chose his patient over the moneybags patient in the beginning of the first episode. Showing heart from the first minutes of the show hooked me!

When Libby's boyfriend thinks she is pregnant and goes to Hank, its really cute, especially when he finds out its all nothing.

My favorite moment was also in the first episode, and it definitely got me hooked. It was the scene with Hank and Libby, when she is diagnosed as a Cyberchondriac. That moment proved to me that this show can blend humor with heart :) I can't wait till Thursday and the premier of season 2!
