Looks awfully good, eh? Before you enter to grab the gear, read the scoop on the series:

USA will launch the 75-minute limited commercial premiere of ROYAL PAINS, the network’s newest original scripted series, on Thursday, June 4 at 10/9c immediately following the Season 3 premiere of BURN NOTICE at its new timeslot 9/8c.

ROYAL PAINS stars Mark Feuerstein as Hank Lawson, a young E.R. doctor who, after being wrongly blamed for a patient's death, moves to the Hamptons and becomes the reluctant "doctor for hire" to the rich and famous. When the attractive administrator of the local hospital asks him to treat the town’s less fortunate, he finds himself walking the line between doing well for himself and doing good for others. The series also stars Paulo Costanzo, Jill Flint and Reshma Shetty.

Have you seen any of the episodes?

If so, how does it look?

I've seen the premiere, and I like it. I think it's visually very entertaining - it's set in the Hamptons, so can't go wrong there. :-) I think it also gives an interesting look at this idea of concierge medicine - which, for most of us regular Joes, we'll never be able to afford. LOL! So that's kind of something I've never seen on TV prior given we only have really ever gotten the 'ER' kind of medical drams.

That said, it IS targeting a kind of exclusive look at a certain setting, so I hope people don't watch this (as they did with 'Trust Me') and go, 'This can't be real. People don't act like this. Rich people can't buy their own doctors.' The truth is, they can. And they do. So, this inner-look at this pretty exclusive service is, to me, the only real potential pitfall of the series. But I think USA has a different audience than TNT, so the colorful, flash, quick-pace style and the mixture of drama/comedy that USA does on ALL their shows will find this one a nice addition.

Plus Mark Fuerestein is always good in everything he does, and I think the role of Dr. Hank fits him to a tee.

I'll have an interview with Mark posting tomorrow (6/3) which will hopefully give you some more insight into the series. :-)

I plan on giving it a try. The main worry I have is that it is going to be endless spoiled rich needing to be picked up after by their doctor. The series it sounds most like to me was the one with the lawyer looking after a family of rich idiots (I think the title was Filthy Rich). I am by no means rich, but I get tired of stereotypes.

I am looking forward to the interview.

Also according to DirecTV's guide the pilot is 1 hr. and 17 min.
