First Look: USA's Royal Pains

First Look: USA's Royal Pains

In Royal Pains, which premieres in early June on USA, Mark Feuerstein plays a reluctant doctor to the rich and famous. His character, Hank, is a young medical superstar living swanky in New York— until, that is, he makes a fateful mistake that leaves a hospital trustee dead. Feeling that all is lost, he goes for a long weekend in the Hamptons with his brother (Paulo Costanzo), and before he knows it, he's making house calls — well, make that mansion-calls — to the elite.

It's kind of odd to see a show about the fabulously rich premiere at a time when so many networks are readying shows about the recession, but this sounds like it could be some fun, lighter Summer entertainment. And I've always kind of rooted for Feuerstein (when he was on The West Wing, I was a big fan), so I'm glad to see him back on TV.

I'm not in love with the show yet based on this first trailer, but I'll check out some episodes and see what I think when Royal Pains premieres June 4. What about you? To watch the promo, just

I personally loved the pilot. Granted, it had some flaws (the beginning took to long, could've been condensed) but for a first run, I think it's promising. I like the 'lightness' of this show. With so much reality tv, it's good to have a show that is just sort of a drama/comedy fantasy and can push a storyline across without having to force laugh out loud physical comedy moments or ultra serious drama. Finally, I loved that they used the song "Ain't No Love in the Club" by Wylde Bunch when Hank and Evan arrive at Boris' castle - it's my current favorite dance track and I was pleasantly surprised to hear it.

I'm hot/cold on Mark, but I too love Paolo. Plus, was that Campbell Scott?!?!

I am looking forward to checking out this show. USA has some pretty good shows.

i think that i actually might check this out. it sounds a little bit like a book that i read a few months back and even though we're all in such dire straights because of finances, it doesn't hurt to be able to check out the other side...

thank god for cable tv during the summer. i hate how the network television is just filled with really bad reality and game shows once the summer months hit. this should be a fun show.

I'm actually superexcited for this one. Considering there's no medical dramedy to look forward to during the week with no House or Grey's, this should be interesting for the summer
