TV Episode Recap/Review – Royal Pains “Big Whoop”

by on Aug.22, 2010, under Comedy-drama, Medical, Television

Royal Pains

Okay so remember last time when I said I was trying really hard to like Emily? Yeah that’s over. I officially hate her now. But that doesn’t mean I dislike the show, so technically this is still a positive review. ;)

In this episode of Royal Pains, called “Big Whoop” Hank and Emily work together to treat a patient and get into a bit of a tiff when they don’t agree on how it should be done. Emily prescribes medication that the patient (a doctor himself) wants but doesn’t consult with Hank, who knows the drug often has dangerous side effects. Their relationship gets tested to the limit when he finds out, though they do end up working it out and find that the man had actually caught a very rare disease called whooping cough from his granddaughter.

TV Episode Review/Recap – Royal Pains: Frenemies

by on Aug.06, 2010, under Comedy, Drama, Medical, Television

Evan and Paige go hunting in Royal Pains

In this episode of Royal Pains called “Frenemies”, the brothers each find a new love interest. I’m trying really hard to like Emily as she wasn’t exactly introduced to us as the nicest character. So the fact that Hank has fallen for her is a little hard to understand. But in this episode, we get to know her a little better and I’m happy that Hank has found someone, especially considering how awkward things have been for Jill. So I’m willing to give Emily a chance….for now.

TV Episode Recap/Review – Royal Pains: In Vino Veritas

by on Jul.19, 2010, under Comedy, Drama, Medical, Television

Henry Winkler and Mark Feuerstein in Royal Pains - In Vino Veritas

In this week’s episode of Royal Pains, titled “In Vino Veritas” (which, according to Wikipedia means “in wine there is the truth”) Hank once again comes to the rescue of a patient, but this time with the help of his father. One of Tucker’s friends is suffering from what at first appears to be drugs, but when the kid falls into a toxic vat, they realize it’s actually a rare disease and only Eddie is around to help get both boys out safely.

I love Henry Winkler but I gotta admit that I haven’t liked Eddie so far this season. It’s probably because I love Hank and since Hank was mad at his father, so was I. Yeah it’s immature but that’s how I felt. In this episode, we got to see a little bit more about their past and though some of it wasn’t pretty, Hank realizes that it’s not as bad as he originally thought either.

In the meantime, Divya has patient of her own. A woman who seems to have a fairly serious condition, but turns out to only be pregnant.

My favorite bits…

Evan telling his dad that he “didn’t need to sleep anyway” after his father described his sex life to him.

Aw, so cute! Love the pic of little Hank and little Evan…..but poor Evan for realizing that the pic was his dad’s way of trying to get on Hank’s good side.

There being no doubt that something was up with Oliver when he slept through Hank poking a needle into his big toe. Ouchies.

Trying to decide whether I was worried or excited when Divya and Jill were worried that Jill was pregnant. On the one hand, the idea of a little Hank running around was too cute but then again, it’s WAY too soon in the show for that sort of drama. LOL.

Evan spotting Divya buying the pregnancy test and in true sitcom style, assumes she’s pregnant, tells Hank and then proceeds to treat her extra nice. Classic.

Yet another awkward meet-up between Hank and Jill. Man, they sure are torturing us with the “will they/won’t they (again)?” question aren’t they?

Evan discovering that he has a real, live super power – super taste buds. LOL.

The way Hank said “Oh please, call me Hank” to his father. Ouch, still a lot of pain there, as evidenced by the memory of how Hank had to face a scary dog to help his father break his car out of an impound lot.

Evan’s crazy assumption that first Divya was pregnant and then that Jill was pregnant….actually helping Divya to figure out who actually was pregnant – her patient.

Seeing that though Hank is definitely the cleverer one, his dad is no slouch either. I loved it when they both realized “pulley!” at the same time and then how they worked as a team on the rope. I also loved the flashback to little Hank getting the keys at the impound.

The look of pure joy on Eddie’s face when said “Dad! I need you!”. Aw, so sweet.

Being both impressed and a little creeped out by the procedure Hank performed on Oliver. I have no idea what he did exactly, but it was freaking brilliant.

Evan telling the soon-to-be mom “Whoa that’s weird, the kid’s already leaching on your life force….in a good way though.”

Evan telling Divya that he doesn’t know if Hank and he can keep going without her….but his expression when she wasn’t looking made me wonder if it was more than just HankMed he was worried about.

Really digging that orange t-shirt Hank was wearing while working the bbq.

Finding out that Tucker’s inheritance drama wasn’t that he got cut off, instead he was put in charge of the fortune and his father’s allowance. Whoa, interesting.

All the crazy ways that Hank tried to prove that Evan couldn’t see through his blindfold (not only waving in front of his face but throwing some mock punches too).

Hank admitting to Evan that the day of the “treasure hunt” really was an adventure and the last flashback showing when the pic was taken.

Overall a pretty sweet episode where an emergency may have helped bring Hank and his father closer together again.

TV Episode Review – Royal Pains: Medusa

by on Jun.28, 2010, under Comedy, Drama, Medical, Television

Royal Pains Medusa

In this episode of Royal Pains, titled ‘Medusa’, Hank and Evan join Boris at his “winter home” in Cuba. It’s not a vacation though as Hank is there to help Boris with a possible cure for his illness. In the meantime, Evan has some adventures of his own as he explores the island alone and poor Divya is back at home dealing with Hank’s replacement.

In the end everything seems all fine and dandy, up until Evan is kidnapped while on his way to the plane. So I guess that means Hank will have to stay and help get his brother out of the mess next week.

My favorite bits…

Evan getting Hank to give up his old bag by relentlessly unpacking it. I could totally see those two doing something like that when they were kids and I’m guessing that Evan won a lot of those battles.

Hank knowing without turning around that Evan was making a celebratory arm motion behind him.

Boris finally getting a diagnosis for what he has and brining Hank all the way to Cuba to help him with the workup.

Evan being sad that he couldn’t explore with his brother. Aw, so sweet. Then again, he seemed to get over it really fast – just as soon as he had a pretty girl to explore with.

Definitely sensing something between Boris and his geneticist. Funny that she seems to automatically hate Hank, though I’m not sure why. Jealousy over Boris’ attention perhaps?

Divya’s obvious dislike for the uppity attitude of Hank’s temporary replacement.

Hank having to treat Evan without the benefit of a suture kit and using braids in his hair to close up his head. It’s always fun to watch him come up with ways to treat people under unusual circumstances but it was even cooler to have him do it on his own brother.

Finding out that the boxes of antibiotics that arrived at Boris’ house were in fact for a clinic in Cuba.

Evan and the guy selling the cigars making ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ references while haggling.

Knowing as soon as Boris told Hank that his plan to wait on starting the protocol was “thorough and reasonable” that he was gonna go ahead and start it on his own.

Evan thinking that he has to talk Hank into enjoying their last night in Cuba, when Hank has already been flirting with the pretty bartender.

Poor Hank not getting a chance to enjoy his even as a girl sick girl is brought to him after getting some plastic surgery.

Being completely turned on by Hank speaking Spanish. Wow, who knew he was hiding that talent?

Evan and Mindy’s “vacationship”. LOL, love that term.

Hank sticking with his guns and refusing to help with a treatment that he doesn’t support.

Divya tearing up Dr. Peck’s card and giving her a piece of her mind. Yeah! Go Divya!

Evan getting kidnapped?? What??

Overall a fun episode that ended with a bit of action and set us up nicely for next week’s episode.

TV Episode Review – Royal Pains: Lovesick

by on Jun.14, 2010, under Comedy-drama, Medical, Television

Evan, Hank and Mrs Newberg in Royal Pains

In this episode of Royal Pains, Hank has a lot on his plate. First there’s his dad, who’s come back into his and Evan’s life after running out on them and their mother twenty years ago. Then there’s the normal amount of unusual medical cases – a woman suffering from (quite literally) a broken heart and the couple suffering from, get this, leprosy brought on by an armadillo. In the midst of all that, he and Jill have a few moments where the romance between them looks to be sparking up again. They get interrupted before they can get in more than a few kisses, but I’m thinking these two might be getting back together. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

My favorite bits….

Hank stitching up his dad after punching him. Guess that’s the benefit of being a doctor – when you knock someone out, you can patch them up too.

Evan doing a Hank impression with the HankMed bobblehead. I loved the fact that the bobblehead Hank was wearing the same outfit as real Hank.

The way the word “yoga” became code for……..shall we say, other physical pursuits?

The look on Evan’s face when he saw that the cute beltmaker’s husband was a very large police officer. Oops. Nice going, Evan.

Hang getting pulled over and asked to perform an exam in the back of a cop car. Now, there’s something you don’t see every day.

Evan falling on his ass while taking Blake’s place in her yoga class. Technically I guess he fell on his face, since he fell forward, but that didn’t sound nearly as funny.

Despite being pissed at his dad, Hank not hesitating to break a window to get to the man when he thought he was in danger.

Feeling bad for poor Divya trying to figure out how to tell her fiancé that she wants to break tradition and sleep with him before the wedding. Oh boy, talk about awkward.

Blake asking if the heart monitor came in ‘sun-kissed yellow’.

Dear old dad trying to pull off the old “I didn’t know that was all your money” line on Evan. Yeah, right.

Finding out the reason why Hank is so mad at his father, the man left his wife and sons when his wife got sick? Oh man, that’s pretty awful. Poor Hank. I’m sure he had to grow up fast to take care of his mom and his little brother.

Evan telling Hank that at some point he has to forgive their dad and Hank coming right back and saying that at some point, Even is going to have to realize that he won’t. Whoa.

Evan in his spectacular green golf outfit.

Poor Blake not only getting dumped via text, but not even being the one to read it herself. Yikes.

Knowing as soon as they sat on the couch that Hank and Jill weren’t going to be able to keep their hands off each other. I loved how Hank clicked the garage door closed and then immediately had to open it again as they were interrupted by a frantic call about Blake.

There’s such a thing as “broken heart syndrome”?? Huh, who knew?

Divya and Raj deciding to….ahem…do “yoga” before they get married ;)

Everyone pointing out to Evan that he really needs to look up what ‘subliminal’ means.

Totally knowing that Mrs. Newberg was talking about Edie as soon as she said she had found ‘the most wonderful man’. Uh oh, guess dad is gonna be around a bit longer than Hank was hoping.
