"Royal Pains" Series Premiere Review by Suzanne

Royal Pains is a good new show from USA Network. I don't know yet whether it will be as good as "Burn Notice" or "Monk", but the first episode is off to a good start. The hero is a doctor who gets sued, even though he did the right thing, and then he is unable to get another job. He loses his wife, too, and seems headed into a deep depression. Then, when he follows his accountant brother to a party in the Hamptons (on Long Island), he stumbles into a job as a high-priced personal. He basically makes house calls to rich people. He also gets to work at a local hospital, presumably helping people who are not rich. The first episode doesn't really delve into that, but I believe future episodes will.

Although the show is ostensibly a medical show, it is really not. There is lots of excitement, action, adventure, sex, and laughs. It is a fairly mindless show, but with good heart. It is definitely enjoyable and fun.

You should tune in and check it out on USA Network! Premieres this week.
