It's still summer in the Hamptons, and HankMed is busier than ever. But "Royal Pains Season Two" manages to keep shaking up the status quo, lest things get stale -- new love interests, new dilemmas, bizarre medical crises and even a business rival. The biggest problem with this season: not enough Libby and Tucker!

HankMed gets blindsided by a bunch of new crises: Eddie Lawson comes to live in the Hamptons (and even dates one of Hank's patients), and Hank soon suspects that his dad has an ulterior motive for being there. Jill's free clinic ends up in a medical tug-o-war. And as Divya's wedding date approaches, she finds herself falling love with a kind-hearted, studly patient.

Additionally, after Boris whisks the Lawson brothers to Cuba to oversee his medical treatment, a cutthroat concierge doctor named Emily decides to set up shop in the Hamptons. Evan is not happy about this, but Hank soon ends up dating Emily.

And we have the usual array of medical disasters -- lightning strikes, experimental gene treatments, mysterious collapses, Mrs. Newberg's "heartbroken" stepdaughter, mystery ailments at a vineyard, the "lottery curse," a food vendor's bizarre behavior, a teen singer with a sore throat, a reality show struck by botulism, an ex-stock-trader fearing an aneurysm, mystery sinus problems, and a bachelor party for Raj that goes spectacularly wrong.

The first season of "Royal Pains" was pretty much a medical show with a few running subplots. But "Royal Pains Season Two" amps up the subplots a little -- there are rivalries, romantic interests, love triangles, and the whole weird situation with Eddie Lawson. There's just a lot more going on in general, especially for Evan and Hank.

But don't worry, the medical crises are still the center of the story. Hank uncovers at least one bizarre, rare or hard-to-diagnose medical problem for every episode ("I have a SWORD in my head!"), or he handles mundane ones with his quick wits (saving two boys from a toxic wine vat). The dialogue is still quick, witty and light, but the writers handle weightier issues in an intelligent manner.

And there's some solid development for the characters -- Hank spends the season grappling with his difficult relationship with his father, whom he loves but hasn't forgiven. And at the same time, he's dating a very cutthroat rival doctor.... which seems a little out of character, since by his own admission he barely knows her.

On the flipside, Evan starts growing up with the introduction of his cute blonde heiress girlfriend, and the relationship between them is adorable (despite her "demon" snoring). And Divya continues to struggle with her impending arranged marriage, particularly her fears that her marriage will be a sham instead of a true partnership. The downside of the cast? Not enough Tucker and Libby! They're only in ONE episode!

"Royal Pains Season Two" packs in more plot per episode, but the medical mishaps are still the center of attention. Funny, sweet and suitably dramatic.

I enjoyed season one and looked forward to this season. There is more of the humour, medical emergencies and relationships with Hankmed. This is enjoyable and fairly light viewing. Well worth a watch.
