The USA channel has a show called Royal Pains, you may have heard of it if you watch Monday Night Raw or if you enjoy channel surfing. It seems like a typical USA show: pretty much a drama but sort of light-hearted and at times full of either cringe-worthy jokes or really serious (and over-acted) moments. There’s usually a lead and a strong co-lead and that co-lead is normally the comic relief. Royal Pains, from what I can tell, is a show that follows this formula and is about a doctor who makes house calls to wealthy idiots who act like jerks.
In short, it seems like an utterly forgettable show but for some reason I was trying to talk about it with someone. I couldn’t think of the name, so I came up with the best thing I could:
Dr. Rich and his Painful Patients
Which, I think is a better title.
