Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 8 Review: Uninterrupted

There were big changes on Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 8 , but the important things didnt change at all because HankMed is a family and even when family moves away, it doesnt really leave. This series finale was a perfect blend of looking back at where it all began and forward to the future of the characters weve grown to love....    Read More...   //

Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 7 Review: The Good News Is...

Generally, I cringe when I hear that one of my favorite shows is going to attempt a musical episode. Why? Because its rare to find one well done. One of the only exceptions to that rule has been Buffy the Vampire Slayers Once More with Feeling. Im still in awe of how much I enjoyed that installment. Needless to say, I didnt have high hopes for Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 7 .   Read More...   //

Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 6 Review: Home Sick

Eddie returned to the Hamptons on Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 6 after hiding out in Passaic, New Jersey. Why go back to Hank and Evans childhood home? Guilt, mostly. He feels guilty for abandoning his family all of those years ago and guilty for lying to them now. And rightfully so.   Read More...   //

Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 5 Review: Saab Story

Everyone has a trigger that propels them to change things and move forward but up until Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 5 , Hank Lawson hadnt found his. Oddly enough, the person who propelled Hank forward was Ken Keller. Who would have guessed that? Keller literally ran back into Hanks lifeand his living room, in the middle of heart failure. Keller has always looked at the world as a fight for survival, with him coming out on top; that's why his health issues were quite the shock...   Read More... //

Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 4 Review: Doubt of Africa

House Call Hank became Hospital Hank in Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 4 ,but the transition did not go smoothly. Actually, having Hank jump back into the ER went much easier than I expected. Hank is a bit of an adrenaline junkie when it comes to medicine, and in that way, the ER suits him. However, I had to laugh when he ordered cardboard and electrical tape to fix a patients heart pump. Its like hes theMacGyverof the ER. Is there no problem that Dr. Hank Lawson cant fix?  Read More...   //

Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 3 Review: Fly Me to Kowloon

Things werent what they seemed on Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 3 as Hank flew off to Hong Kong on a mysterious mission with Boris. Im still not entirely sure I understood it all. Boris was announcing that his company had developed a drug to combat his genetic disease, but up until this point it appears hes been successful at keeping his disease under wraps.   Read More...   //

Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 2 Review: Palpating the Orbital Rim

Even with a hacker infiltrating the records of Hamptons Heritage, it turned out that family relations were the real challenge in Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 2 . But the truth is that the family relationships are what makes this series so special.   My favorite was Jeremiah and his strained relations with his parents. As he explained to Divya in this Royal Pains quote ....  Read More...   //

Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 1 Review: Stranger Danger

The HankMed crew was back in Royal Pains Season 8 Episode 1 and this final season leaves us with lots of questions. Will Evan and Paige have a baby? Will Divya become a doctor? Will Hank ever get a new car? Yes, I know how much he loves that Saab, but that car must be close to 20 years old. Perhaps its time to move on. But the biggest question will be whether or not Hank can break through his romantic paralysis. So far, it isnt going well.   Read More...   //

Royal Pains Season Finale Review: Your Team

Another summer in the Hamptons has come to a close. But as much as things can change,  Royal Pains Season 6 Episode 13  reminded us that plenty of things still say the same. Royal Pains Season 6  started with Divya celebrating the first birthday of her baby girl, Sashi. And while she spent the season exploring who she is as a woman and a mother, by season's end she was figuring out custody issues with Rafa and running into an old flame. One can only wonder what it means that both Divya and Rafa find themselves single and reuniting at this particular point. It almost feels like things are coming full circle. Read More... //

Royal Pains Review: Dynamic Duos

Started from the bottom, now we're here. It appears that HankMed is at the top of its game, and Boris solidified it by not only purchasing Hampton's Heritage from Symphony Health Systems and asking them to serve on the hospital's Board of Directors. And for that reason,  Royal Pains Season 6 Episode 12  was an unexpectedly big deal - and one Hank wasn't willing to make. Read More... //
