What's Hot Today

'Royal Pains' - 'Lovesick' Recap Season 2, Episode 2

Ah, the heart. It's a life-giving organ that means well, and can bring two people closer together. But a wounded heart can also lash out at old hurts and get you into trouble. And it was all of these cases in the second episode of the season. And I'm happy to report that this episode seemed to gel a lot better than the season 2 premiere: the rapport between Hank and Evan was strong and snappy, Christine Ebersole made a welcome return as the wealthy and surgically addicted Ms. Newberg, and we got a special treat of a guest star in '24' fixture Mary Lynn Rajskub. Rajskub played Blake, Ms. Newberg's stepdaughter who gave up meat and dropped out of culinary school in Lyon to live the life of an ascetic in San Francisco after falling for a hot young yogi named Jamie. Trouble was, she was also falling in all the wrong places -- first at Ms. Newberg's shindig, and then while attempting some balancing moves. While Blake tried to shoo away the bobbles with wryly funny excuses like "I'm suffering from a condition known as 'complete lack of coordination,' and I've had it since birth," both Hank and Divya had their doubts, and insisted that Blake be strapped to a very uncool heart monitor. Turned out it wasn't her age or her lack of bendiness that was causing her palpitations: it was her heart. Jamie turned out to be as awful as that gluten-free casserole Blake was trying to make, because he didn't have the soy balls to break up with her in person. Instead, holistic boy did it via (gasp!) text message and tried to cloak it in some ying-yang nonsense. (No one treats Chloe that way and gets away with it!) Just goes to show that one should never give up baked goods for anyone. To Read More Click Here . If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

'Royal Pains' review: Royally painless with Henry Winkler and Mary Lynn Rajskub

Royal Pains continued its cheerful, warm-weather ways last night. Somehow it doesn’t even matter that Mark Feuerstein’s Hank was still deeply resentful at the fact that his dad, Henry Winkler’s Eddie R., left the family when Hank’s mom was dying 20 years ago. Some let-it-go philosophy from little brother Evan (“People can change”), a little twinkle from the eyes of Winkler, and a big check from Eddie repaying the money he owed his sons, and things went swimmingly. If Winkler was the main attraction as a semi-regular guest, it was guest star Mary Lynn Rajskub who got more camera time this evening. In what I think may be her first post-24 TV-series appearance, Rajskub played the pliant daughter of Christine Ebersole’s Mrs. Newberg. Seeing Rajskub portraying a needy young woman who drove herself to physical and emotional extremes to keep her yoga-teacher boyfriend, I felt a little like I do when I see a member of the cast of The Wire pop up on a network-TV guest-spot - i.e., you had probably the best role of your career, and now you have to do this.
