Product Description

Hank is a rising star in the New York City medical community, until he loses everything fighting for the life of a patient. With his career stalled and his personal life in shambles, Hank is in need of a new beginning. That’s where his younger brother Evan (Paulo Costanzo) steps in. Fed up with Hank’s personal pity party, he convinces Hank to join him on a last-minute trip to the Hamptons for Memorial Day weekend. When the brothers crash a party at the home of a Hamptons billionaire and a guest falls critically ill, Hank saves the day. His dramatic medical rescue draws attention from the crowd. Inadvertently, Hank becomes the hot new “concierge doctor” in town. With encouragement from Evan and an ambitious young woman who volunteers to be his physician assistant he decides to stay in town solving medical crises and helping those in need. Hank is back to doing what he does best. And now he’s reinvented himself as the Hamptons’ hottest new “doctor-in-demand.”

Now it can be told: the mega-rich get sick and hurt too. It's just that their illnesses, injuries, and conditions are a lot weirder and more exotic than those suffered by mere mortals. At least that's the message delivered in Royal Pains, USA Network's medical-comedy series offered here with all 12 first-season episodes (plus bonus features) on three discs. Mark Feuerstein plays Hank Lawson, a Manhattan physician who unfairly loses his hospital job, and soon thereafter his gold-digging fiancée, when a powerful trustee dies on his watch. Enter younger brother Evan (Paulo Costanzo), a nerdy accountant and shameless social climber, who enlists Hank to help him crash a fancy soiree in the Hamptons; Hank saves the life of a partygoer, which leads to more and more work, and all of a sudden he's a "concierge" doc at the service of people whose wealth is matched only by their vanity and acquisitiveness.

Hank soon establishes himself as not only a remarkably creative doctor (since he makes house calls, he's often obliged to be a medical MacGyver, jerry-rigging equipment out of whatever's lying around) but a man of unimpeachable ethics--a real rarity in this crowd. He also finds Divya (Reshma Shetty), an eager and reliable assistant, and Jill (Jill Casey), a fellow doctor and potential new love interest who seems to be a real person. That leaves the patients, and therein lies the rub. How much can we really be expected to care about a ballerina who's allergic to pizza, a woman whose jealous husband has had a tracking device implanted in her chest, a scientist nipped by a shark kept in a tank in some rich dude's basement, a billionaire with substance abuse problems, or a frivolous socialite whose maid becomes ill during her dog's "bark mitzvah"? Sure, some of these bits are amusing, but they seem at odds with Hank's utter seriousness about his duties. What's more, while Hank is an appealing protagonist, his relationship with Jill is uninvolving, and the snobby Divya and always-on-the-make Evan both wear thin in a hurry. Royal Pains has a lot of potential--let's hope it's more fully realized in subsequent seasons. --Sam Graham

    Format: DVD
    In some ways, the rich are no different from the rest of us: they get sick, get hurt, and need doctors to figure out what makes them ache. "Royal Pains: Season One" follows the misadventures of a doctor who finds himself at their beck and call, and it has the right mix of everything -- luxurious living in the Hamptons, weird medical crises, and a fair amount of humor.

    Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein) is a successful young E.R. doctor in New York... until the day when a wealthy trustee dies because he focused on saving a dying teenager. Trying to distract him from his woes, his brother Evan (Paulo Costanzo) whisks him to an exclusive party in the Hamptons, at the palatial mansion of the reclusive, absurdly-wealthy Boris Rabanisch (Campbell Scott).

    Then a woman nearly dies at the party, and Hank manages to save both her and Boris' treasured privacy. As a result, he soon finds himself drafted as the new concierge doctor for the wealthy Hamptons residents, along with Evan and a physician's assistant named Divya (Reshma Shetty). And his work often brings him to see Jill Casey (Jill Flint), the administrator of a local hospital.

    Among the cases: breast implant disasters, an epidemic at a "bark mitzvah," a mystery shark bite, a hemophiliac teenager and his "cyberchondriac" girlfriend, and mystery ailments afflicting a senator's son, a ballerina, a horseback rider, a restauranteur, and a bestselling illustrator. Since Hank cares more about curing people than making money, he also provides care for people who can't afford the best -- but the person who needs his help the most may also be the wealthiest.

    I normally can't watch medical shows -- every time I try, I develop a massive case of "medical students' disease" and end up having to go watch "Psych" instead.

    Yes I enjoyed the first season of this show, that I thought was a summer fill in. I was happy to suspend my disbelief in the fantasy premise of a boutique practice in the Hamptons. By the last show of the season the scripts had become boiler plates with fill in the blanks for the next show. The characters were one dimensional pulled out of a royalty free store for characters. Credit is due to the strength of the cast. All are engaging and held my interest enough to watch through the end of the season. They all had the chops to make a cardboard character look like more than than it really was. In spite of the efforts of the cast this show was too thin for me to watch a second season

    Overall it was much better than I thought it would be. Interesting characters, good writing, some very funny dialogue, and a good solid foundation to build a good series, which is going well so far.
    The show, Season 1, which originally aired on USA network on June 4, 2009, features an E.R. Doctor, Hank, who gets fired from his job at the hospital, and finds himself offered the much coveted concierge Doctor in the Hampton's taking care of the rich and richer, for the summer, and despite some reservations takes the job. So each episode features some new client who he helps (or in some cases, saves). It reminded me a little of David Duchovny's character from the movie 'Playing God' due to Hank's sometimes 'outside the box' medical solutions.
    I'll admit, when I saw the previews for this show they kept running on TV trying to drum up interest before the first air date on USA network, I thought it was a joke. I thought it was going to be very dumb.
    However, I was pleasantly surprised. I've seen the actor playing Hank in other movies and tv shows (played a lawyer in West Wing, and the boyfriend/fiance of Toni Collette in the movie 'In Her Shoes'), and have enjoyed him as a performer. Well, he's really good in this series as well because you believe in him as the character Hank, and you want to see what he's going to do with the twists of each show. Plus he's surrounded by his team, a spunky female Physician's Assistant and Hank's brother the Accountant, which provide for another layer of entertainment and subplots that help fill out 'Hank Med'. And then of course there's the variety of Hampton hob-nobs with their issues as well that sort of round out the fun for each episode.
    While I prefer some episodes to others (though that can be said of almost every series), I'm enjoying the added new addition to the somewhat 'Been-There-Done-That' that I've seen of television series.

    Royal Pains will never get the high-brow acclaim that more serious medical dramas like, say, House or ER got. Royal Pains is more a guilty pleasure than a critic's darling. I guess you can make a case for Royal Pains being similar to House, only with more fine women and comic bits and heaps more self-absorption. Our guy Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein) once was a gifted ER surgeon in Brooklyn until an aged billionaire hospital trustee expired under his care (see, Hank was simultaneously trying to save a young man's life). Nothing to do then but for the hospital to blame and fire Hank, nothing but for the billionaire's family to blackba11 him in the medical community.

    Thirty days or so later, check out Hank Lawson in his suddenly slovenly digs. He's down in the dumps, planted on the couch in his undies, unable to land a job. His fiancée I guess was in it for the money and the prestige because she's just bolted. And I guess you've got to credit his goofy CPA brother, Evan (Paulo Costanzo), for extracting Hank from his deep mopes. Evan drags Hank to the Hamptons for a weekend stay. Hank probably wouldn't have gone, but his Netflix account just died, he's that broke now.

    In the Hamptons, Evan and Hank crash a swank party, and Hank doesn't know it yet but he's just stumbled onto his true calling when he ends up saving a distressed model. Word gets around like brush fire in the Hamptons, and, suddenly, Hank's services are in high demand. Our guy protests that he's only in the Hamptons for a few days, but this is the pilot episode, so we know better. As our reluctant "conscierge doctor" makes his house calls, can he reconcile his professional ethics and his personal integrity with the outrageous demands issued by his new clientele?
