Did You Know?

Trivia

Boris' magnificent home (Oheka Castle, one of the biggest US mansions, circa 1919), is actually west of The Hamptons and about 20 minutes from the North Port power station, whose four smokestacks can be seen in some shots. This means it would be unlikely Hank and Evan would see water from their patio, even though a jetty and water are always in the background, implying an ocean view. See more »

Quotes

Divya Katdare: ["Characters Welcome" crossover ad with "Burn Notice": Divya is diagnosing Sam Axe in a bar] It could be excessive blood loss or hypoglycemia. Are you on a diuretic?
Sam Axe: No.
Divya Katdare: Perhaps it's even psychogenic polydipsia.
Sam Axe: Oh?
Divya Katdare: Any one of those could be causing your excessive thirst.
Waiter: [gives Sam a beer bottle] Here you go, sir.
Sam Axe: Thank you.
[he takes a drink from it]
Sam Axe: Hey! What do you know? It's gone! It's like a miracle cure!
Divya Katdare: Miraculous.

Consistently Inconsistent
26 July 2009 | by osughostcarSee all my reviews

Mark Feuerstein (Hank) carries the show MacGyvering medical miracles. While I really enjoy these scenes it might annoy me if I had a little more medical knowledge as the seemingly implausible might be impossible.

Some shows are carried by the supporting cast (think Seinfeld or Frasier) this is not one of those shows. His brother, Evan, and love-interest, Jill, can both be annoying at times while Divya is often flat. None of them are good actors and the bad acting extends to the list of sometimes reoccurring characters as well.

I love the good episodes and hate the bad ones. The funny thing is I may be able to start skipping the bad ones entirely because they alternate. I have liked episodes 1, 3, 5 and 7 and disliked 2, 4 and 6.
