I've been watching Royal Pains from the beginning and I think if I'm still watching it, I might as well write an episode review each time.
So I'm starting this review series with episode 8.
I guess this was the best episode of the season. I'm not really a big fan of Paige but this time she was absolutely amazing from the beginning to the end! How she opened the door and handled Milos, how she handled the auction and the whole situation, she was shining during the whole episode.
About the plot: to tell you the truth, I was expecting more from this whole Milos story and now I'm a bit disappointed. I guess the writers could have made a better plot instead of this "Milos is delusional" explanation.
Evan looked really awful in his blue suit and those brown shoes but I'm used to it :)
I really missed Jeremiah and Dr. Van Dyke.
Now that Boris's mystery is solved, I'm really curious to see what the writers can come up with to entertain us. :)
I chose this movie because of Noam Jenkins. He's one of my favorite actors. I've seen him in Rookie Blue, in Covert Affairs and also in The State Within. These are all Tv Series and I was glad to find this movie, I wanted to see how he can play a role in a movie.
Kate Burkholder (Neve Campbell) is the Chief of Police in Painter’s Mill, Ohio, a small town where there is an Amish community. She grew up there as Amish herself but left the community and now she has to face the consequences, meaning that her family is not speaking to her, the Amish community treats her like she does not exists.
There has been a crime, an Amish girl has been brutally murdered and Kate suspects a serial killer. She's under a lot of pressure, the Major asks for help and Kate ends up with an unwanted profiler played by Noam Jenkins, who has an interesting past as well. She's trying to sideline him but he's too smart and figures out quickly that Kate is not telling him the details. Putting together the pieces he knows almost the whole story.
During the investigation Kate is forced to speak to her ex fiance, an Amish man who's married now but hasn't forgotten the past. He's willing to help her though.
I'm not going to tell you the whole story, I'm just going to write a quick review.
Fist of all I loved the cast. I've seen Neve Campbell in Party of Five but she's a grown woman now and must say I love her. She played this role really well. I'm going to look for her other movies and watch as much as I can of them.
Jilon VanOver caught my attention. Shame on me, I know, but I don't know him at all, never heard of him. He's been really great so I guess I'm going to look for his movies as well.
I loved how the writer put together the story, using the Amish community, the Amish girl who left the community and came back to be a policeman, and how the things turned out at the end. Family, community, love, hatred, forgiveness, all in one movie.
This is also a great interview. Daniel Sunjata and Aaron Tveit are answering a couple of questions about the stories, the characters, about how they can deal with different situation, including their relationship with the outside world. I know episode 2 is coming tonight but it still worth watching this video.
Looks like the accommodation period for Levi is over and things are becoming complicated. As I see he cant decide whether to investigate Briggs or not. And he also has trust issues, he has no idea who to trust which is normal in those circumstances. The promo looks good and I can't wait to see what's going to happen with Mike.
