That news makes me so happy! I loved watching that show last summer, so I'm so glad that it's back on again. It's such a good breezy, light-hearted fun show....Did anyone else watch it?

If not, you can always catch up on episodes online

I love this show! My sister called me two weeks ago to ask if I had ever seen it, they were shooting on the beach at the end of her street! I was soo jealous!

YIPEE!! I love this show! There needs to be more lighthearted stuff like this for sure. There's too many crime/cop/dead body shows lately.

You're right - they did! I'm excited to see what happens between him & his sons. I used to LOVE him, haha. They've also got Anastasia Griffith from the show Trauma joining the cast as Hank's business rival.

Mamalisa - I totally agree. There definitely needs to be more shows like this. I'm tired of all those cop shows AND those hospital dramas. It's a fun watch with great characters and good writing

I agree and the lightheartedness is the reason I like the show. More and more, I just don't care to watch the harder stuff.

I also am loving Chuck and Burn Notice (sort of a light crime/cop/dead body show but spun in a funny way)

I kind of like that about USA shows - they're very smart, don't take themselves tooo seriously, and they're just very well-done in general....I think I'm a fan of pretty much all their shows

Love Burn Notice too! It'll be on right before Royal Pains this summer You might like this fun video with Sam Axe and Hank Lawson. "Spy-ami" Lol

Caneel, my whole family loves Chuck. Chuck night is sacred.

I love the brother in Royal Pains ever since Road Trip.

Ohhh...is that where he's from? I remember him from Joey...haha. I love him - he's kind of adorable. I especially love the scenes with Divya (the medical assistant). It'll be interesting to see what happens this season, since he basically lost all of his brother's hard-earned money!

That clip is great.

Our 4.5 year old loves Chuck. Granted, some of the things might be a bit "old" for him but when he sees Sarah kicking butt, it is like a super-hero scene, he doesn't view it as fighting or violence.

If he feels Casey doesn't get enough screen time he will ask me where's more Casey?

I like how they portray Chuck's relationship with Eli and Awesome and even the relationship between the friends.

Chuck is definitely an entertaining show....I didn't think much of it at first, but then I watched one episode and was hooked. It's entertaining and fun and smart. Nothing too on the serious side, and with great characters! (Kind of like why I watch pretty much anything on USA, hehe). Season premiere of Royal Pains is only about 2 weeks away!

Did you watch it yet? I thought it was great - good first ep, and so happy that's it back!!! I'm looking forward to seeing what happens with their dad, and I like the new doctor (Marcia Gay Harden) - such good guests already!!! And what do you all think about Evan & Divya?

Oh I know. I saw the chemical thing coming a mile away but still, the show tickles me.

I missed the Divya engagement thing last season (I missed the last few episodes) I take it she did get engaged but am confused, does she want to be married to Raj or not? There were references to an arranged marriage but if so, why would she be wearing the ring when there aren't any family members around to see it?

I feel like it's just in her character to wear the ring - Divya's the kind of girl that will make a commitment and stick to it...and even though the marriage is more for her family than for herself.

Speaking of, part of the tonight's episode summer includes:

Quote:
Divya attempts to bring romance into her relationship with Raj.
So perhaps we'll know more....

Speaking of Divya, took this profiler quiz on the USA website and it turns out that I am "Undeniably Divya":

Quote:
Are you a little controlling? Certainly. A little prickly? Perhaps. Divya-esque? Definitely. Like your doppelganger Divya, you're a take-charge sort of person, and with your intelligence, determination and resourcefulness, you usually manage to get your way. The only problem is, you hold yourself (and everyone else to a very high standard - sometimes impossibly high.
Hmm....You can take the quiz here and see who you get!

So what does everyone think of the season soon far? Looks like it's shaping up to be very interesting - what with the tension between Hank/Eddie, the new doctor, and the always mysterious Boris.

Yeah - that was kind of surprising! Tonight's episode should definitely be an interesting one - want to know who's behind his kidnapping! What do you think of Boris' new doctor?
