GREAT Show - Price Way Too High For Limited Number Of Episod

The previous reviews thoroughly cover the show. I love the show !!!! Interesting new twists in the second season.
My SOLE complaint is the PRICE for limited episodes - OUTRAGEOUS !!!!!! You get 13-15 episodes at a price 50% HIGHER than the main stream series which average $28-$38 where you get 22-26 episodes.
And with over 1,800 movies in my library plus 135 TV series seasons (42 series), I have REFUSED to buy this series until it is reasonably priced - $22-$24. Otherwise it will not be part of my collection. Very sad as it is outrageously priced. Amazon should be ashamed of the pricing of the "summer" series like Leverage, Human Target, White Collar, etc. WAY, WAY over priced for the limited episodes you get. Thoroughly detracts from the high quality of these series which I love. But die-hard movie lover or not, I REFUSE to pay the exorbinate prices for this "limited" episode "summer" series. I will have to rely on my trusty DVR for the reruns.
My humble "2 cents"."
Weekend at the Hamptons - Guilt Free

"Royal Pains seemed like another TV formalistic show by USA Network. Good guy wronged other around him see his fantastic qualities and he just wants to do what is right (Robin Hood in NYC). But it is much more than that. A cleverly hidden set of dynamics was set in place to keep drawing in viewers. First was just Boris, the local Billionaire; then our friendly way too rich neighborhood 16 year old kid - Tucker who fixes his Dad's crashed Ferrari's for sport; a series of folks up and down "the right side of the Hampton's Main Drive" who all flit in and out of the enhanced story line. As it is centered around Hank, his Brother Evan; Jill the local "down and trodden Little People's Hospital" Administrator and Hanks Medical Assistant Divya - they can bring folks in and out with ease to stay a while or just or a show. If audiences like the interaction; they can always have another "convenient" illness that sweeps them back into the picture. On Season 2 now and if the writers deep their scripts taut and the acting crisp, then this series should run for quite a while. Fun to see how the other half lives while I'm in my "smallish" home watching the Rich and Silly swill around in their luxuriant and opulent settings all semi-guiltless pleasures on the screen...."
