Anyone else out there looking forward to the season premiere of House on Fox? I thought this was hands-down one of the best shows on TV last season. House never ceased to amaze me with it's phenominal stories and it's great acting/actors, lead by Hugh Laurie (who deserves to win the Emmy in my book). Each week I couldn't wait to hear what came out of Dr. Gregory House's mouth and to see what medical dilemas Dr. House and Co. would encounter.

I can't wait for Season 2 to start this Tuesday. :thumbsup:

I can't wait either! I thought the show was incredible! One of the best new shows to come out of late. The acting is incredible, especially House himself. I mean who knew the guy who played the father in Stuart Little would be such a good actor!!! I've seen the previews for what appears to be the first ep in season 2, and while I am not a fan of LL Cool J, it looks really good. From little snipets that I saw, J's acting seems pretty good. It should be a great ep!

There has to be more people that watch this excellent show other than us megaprime. If not, they dont' know what they are missing. I just watched the premiere episode and it was awesome. LL did a real good job and next weeks episode looks to be good as well. Let me know what you thought of the premiere.

Very pleased here, going to be an excellent season! :pleased:

There has to be cause it was nonimated for like 4 emmy's. Did you catch last night's new episode?? It was great!! I mean I know LL Cool J has been in movies and stuff but I had idea he could play a hoodlum! :laugh: Seriously though the episode was great although I don't see the point in having Sela Ward's character there. I mean I get it that they want to see the conflict between her and house, but it's really not necessary. What was going on last season with house and cameron was much more interesting.

I totally agree. I hope that they bring their "relationship" back. Even if Cameron said she was over him, you know she isn't. I'm not quite sure why Sela Ward is on the show either. I understand they wanted to end last season strong and they definitely did that, and bringing Ward in helped I guess. But I still don't know what the point of her character is, guess they are still developing it.

Either way, it was a fantastic episode and this season looks like its going to be awesome. Next weeks episode should be good as well, I'm already looking forward to Tuesday.:D

I searched and searched and found NO existing thread on FOX's House show. Wha-?!? So, here it is.

Oh! I need to prompt discussion with a topic or opinion! Right, right...


So, anybody watching it? Anyone think it's getting too creepy serious? TV dramas obviously will be serious, but lately it's been just skin-crawlingly odd.

I've seen it once or twice, when it was on, and I didn't feel like leaving the room. I found it a bit silly and formulaic myself.

I started watching House around the middle of the first season and haven't stopped. After the first season ended, I picked up the dvd set (still mad that it is non-anamorphic :mad:) and watched the episodes that I missed, before the second season started. I've been hooked ever since. It is easily one of my favorite shows on TV. The only other show that I look more forward to each week is The Office.

Btw Bel-Cam, I did create a thread here a while back before the start of Season 2... although it didn't catch on. Here tis' (http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showthread.php?t=29781);)

My sister got me hooked on this show late in season 1, luckily USA network was already airing the series so I caught up on all the episodes I missed. What I like about the show is that it's character-driven and that the characters - even the titular one - are fallible (though House making 5 mistakes before getting it right is getting a tad predictable ;)). The recent story arc with the cop is a little hard to take, if it pays off well then it'll be worth it but I get the feeling it's not going to be satisfying.

The show was quirky, fairly consistent, and funny in both obvious and sublime ways. Now, I just get creeped out because of new plotlines (underage stalkers, cops with personal vendettas, drug trafficking charges, etc.). But I'm still watching, because I know that when I stop, it'll be great and I'll give a giant "d'oh! " that I missed it.

I know what you are talking about JT with regards to the Cop (David Morse) plotline and I hope they wrap it up soon. I'm getting kinda tired of it. Although it is kinda nice that House has kind of "met his match" although it sucks that Wilson and his crew are getting punished for it. Wilson is awesome btw, one of my favorite characters. I'm really looking forward to tomorrows episode.

Btw - you all didn't have merge this thread, but since you did, you should adjust the title to just "House" since it is no longer Season Two. :D

I'm kinda hooked on this show too.

As you can tell by the time of posting (9 minutes after the show has started) I'm not too hardcore about it. My roommate TiVo's it so I don't have to worry about catching it right away.

The show to me seems kinda repetitive. Someone comes in with a strange disease, House knows what it is, he lets the n00bs try and figure it out, they can't so House saves the day.

JediTricks
11-29-2006, 03:27 PM
I guessed last night's disease gimmick almost right away, but the storytelling around it was still solid. House makes an awesome bastage, he really tore Cuddy apart. I knew as soon as Wilson saw Chase's bruise that Wilson was going to be the turncoat, that should play out interesting. And are the writers trying to make it like House actually wants to be caught? It feels like that's where they're going with his behavior, like he wants someone to do what's right and his ego can't allow him to say so.

They aren't really noobs. They're post residency fellows, which means 7+ years of school, 3+ of residency in their specialty (neurology, immunology/pathology, and ICU/surgery). Now they're on a 3-5 year commitment with House before they'll be allowed to run something like the CDC or NIH etc. At least that's what fellows do after they complete them these days in the real world.

This plot line is a result in over playing the Chi McBride/Drug Company take over of the hospital last year. It just wasn't believable that a CEO would take that much of a hands on interest in one employee way down the line. The drug addiction storyline is much more believable, and the only unbelievable part is after Wilson's practice was essentially going to be shut down, he didn't cave immediately. It is predictable in that it happened already in the show, just the character has more (un)realistic staying power.

11-29-2006, 10:35 PM
Wilson is a sucker and loyal and a bit of a martyr, I'm not surprised he tried to fall on his sword for House this long.

You make a good point about the Chi McBride thing from last season, it was too much to believe and this is a better villain. I'm not sure why they need a villain though.

Because House is so caustic you have to have something for the people who don't get it to make him sympathetic. He can't just be tolerated because he's a genius with no people skills (he actually has great people skills, just takes everyone that long to realize it). They typical conflict of the episode is House's brain/theory against the backdrop of the patients/his fellows. By having a background problem there's something else now.

the problem I have as a research scientist with doctors is when they claim to be research scientists too. Yes there are a handful, but in reality M.D.'s are trained autonomotons who go down a list of symptoms and play the percentages. This isn't true science. This is following a recipe. Yes, the drug they give you usually makes you feel better, but they only go with the alternative if you get worse. While this is a simple hypothesis, they don't (until you get really bad off), go back and revist why it was wrong in the first place. They assume the alternative and treat that, and etc.

House is probably the closest to some of the M.D., Ph.D.'s I've interacted with along the way (although most have better people skills).

JediTricks
11-30-2006, 07:25 PM
Originally the network didn't mind that House WAS the villain, I guess now that the show is popular that's somehow changed. House is the villain to the characters, and the diseases are the villains to the plots.

As for scientific method, it seems a lot of professionals are losing their grasp on it, switching instead to playing the percentages. Auto repair is a good example of the problem, it's just "spend $400 to fix what likely will be the problem" instead of "we'll track down what the problem through the observation of evidence and application of reason, starting from the most simple and likely explanation and then moving outwards", and why do they do that? Because the demands on their time have become more expensive than what they are fixing.

as a trained autonomoton i may have the wrong idea. but my goal has always been to make my patient better. if my initial therapy works, i don't need to investigate an alternative unless my patient gets worse. and no i'm not involved in research because i have no interest in it.

In a way, it was a "huh?" deal, but after I thought more about it, it fit. House gets some of what he deserves and gets out of some of it, too. That's what's been going on in recent episodes, so it's consistent, if not frustrating. But I kind of liked how they "ended" the arc (it can still reappear quite easily).

Yeah, that was a pretty good episode, and it was all character-based this time rather than being about a big twist mystery at the end. I think they did a great job showing House's humanity here, and she really had to pry it out of him. And you're right, she did a great job with that part. Cameron's story didn't do very much but it was an interesting statement.

Eve, our "patient" in the main storyline, did anybody else think she seemed a lot like Scarlett Johansson both in look and in acting?

I was really surprised when I IMDB'd Winnick (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0935395/) to see what all she'd had been in as it was quite a bit of stuff. I also found this tidbit about Winnick to be very interesting:


She currently holds a third-degree Black Belt in tae kwan do, a second-degree Black Belt in karate and is a licensed bodyguard.

Granted, there wasn't much setup for the cameron/chase exchange in previous episodes, but as we also have noticed, cameron's life hasn't had jack squat going on either and that's why I think it worked on this anti-valentine's day ep.

Yeah, that worm scene was hard to watch, just like the previous episode where House rushes in and pulls the patient's intestines out.

Glad this show is back on, too bad we have to take another 3 week break from it again. :(

Tonight's episode was really good though. Dave Matthews did a good job, as did Red Foreman (Kurtwood Smith).

I liked House's jib at the beginning to Chase and Cameron about their hair being wet and them showering together. :p

I actually thought something really sincere was happening between Cameron and House at first, took me back a bit. Turns out Cameron had other motives. House's as* grab of Cuddy was nice too. ;) lol

I was really worried when they revealed that House had inoperable brain cancer/tumor. I was like "oh no." Then when the truth came out, I was like,"Yeah, thats totally House. Thats what he'd do." :rolleyes: :D

...that House sure is something else.

It was a decent episode but kinda predictable...at least to me. Just something about the "alias" he went under struck me as odd. Nick N. Laura? Isn't that a couple on a soap opera or something? That's what made me immediately know that House didn't have cancer. I wasn't sure WHY he'd lie but when it came out I thought to myself "that kooky House". :crazed:

I too thought that Red did a great job. Almost so good in fact that I almost didn't recognize because I didn't hear "dumba55" come out of his mouth. I also didn't even know that was Dave Matthews. I remember hearing it but I couldn't pick him out of a crowd so I just figured it was some average Joe.

All around a decent episode and I can't wait to see the next episode...while I'm in Japan. :thumbsup:

Perhaps you're thinking of "Laura & Luke"? Or the Thin Man couple, Nick & Nora.

This was a pretty solid episode, the real crux I think was the interplay between Cuddy & House at her place, every second of it, even the cheap feel.

I was quite disappointed by them trying to throw brain cancer at House, and the twist within the twist was quite good - even if House took it way further than he ever had before.

There were a few LOL moments for me this week. Best thing about the episode was hearing that there's about 8 straight weeks of new eps. Sweet! :thumbsup:

I was expecting House to either dump a toxic waste-dissolved man on Kurtwood's car's windshield, or run him through with his finger input device, as Kurtwood screams "I WORK FOR DICK JONES!!!!! " :confused:

I thought it was a pretty good episode. The whole Cameron and Chase sex stuff is starting to get tiresome even though they just added that element to the show quite recently. Its cool that Foreman and House know about it though. I'm sure House will love to poke fun of it.

CUDDY: "Get over me."
HOUSE: "Gimme a break. You hired me --"
CUDDY: "Because you're a good doctor who couldn't get himself hired at a blood bank, so I got you cheap."
HOUSE: "You gave me everything I asked for, because one night I gave you everything you -- "
CUDDY: "Stop staring at my *** when you think I'm not looking, showing up at restaurants where I happen to be on a date, and fantasizing about me in the shower. That ship sailed long ago, House. Get over it."
HOUSE: "If you're still referring to your ***, I think "that super-tanker sailed" would be the more precise metaphor."

I thought this was a really good episode. I liked how half of it took place in the hospital and on the other on the airplane. The change of scenery was good. The "mass-hysteria" thing was pretty wild. I definitely didn't see that coming, hell I didn't even know that was really possible. :crazed: The altitude sickness / water pressure thingy was pretty crazy too. Like you said Bel-Cam, "fun-loving jerk genius", both Dr. House and the show. :D

I'm glad this Cameron and Chase thing is over (so it appears). I was kinda getting tired of it.

It seems like we would have a new co/guest star come on soon that would appear in multiple episodes again, like we had in Sela Ward, David Morse and Chi McBride. The end of this season right around the corner.

No kidding. It will probably get real awkward now. Chase had a good point; Cameron's feelings and emotions are so wacked out she just didnt' want to face the fact that she too has feelings for Chase. She just wanted to detach... or something like that. :p lol


Last night's episode was really good, what else is new right? I had no idea why these kids were so messed up. I figured it was involving the dad somehow, but I had no idea. Crazy how that one played out.

That little kid grabbing Cameron's a** and attacking Chase was pretty wild and crazy.

I liked the whole thing between Wilson and Cuddy and how House had to get involved and send those flowers. lol Great stuff! The ending was great too, House asking Cuddy if she wanted to see a play. ;) :thumbsup:

Really good episode, with some familiar guest stars. Dude who played JP in Grandma's Boy, who kept explaining symptoms and had to pee at home. :laugh: Then the dad's girlfriend/daycare lady, who played Libby on the fantastic and cancelled way too soon show on HBO, Carnivale.

Another fantastic episode last night. Some really, really good acting by Foreman (Omar Epps). His acting kinda reminded me like the 2 episodes from last season when he was dying. Excellent stuff! :thumbsup: Very powerful, emotional. The whole thing with his mother was quite sad too. :sad:

I tell you, that House is something else. Meeting up with Wilson's ex. Plotting on him and Cuddy. That was kinda weird, but it appears House is being sincere in his actions (appears to be, mind you).

I can understand how Foreman would feel terrible with regards to being the main person responsible for killing the patient, so to speak. But House made some very good points. I know it sounds demented, but it was kinda good to see them lose a case if ya know what I mean. It was just crazy that the cause was something so simple that they overlooked/were unaware of. It shows how that they are indeed, not perfect. You can't win 'em all.

Very good episode. It was kinda refreshing to see them focus more on the main characters and provide a little more depth to them, and not so much the case, if you know what I mean. I know they have kinda been doing that lately, but I thought they did a really good job last night.

Btw, that Chase is something else too.

The thing about last night, was that there was great ACTING. Most of the episodes have had interesting stories, weird twists, odd behavior, etc. This one showed how talented the actors are. At first, I thought, "eh." But the more I pondered it, the story was simple and fairly easy to figure out, but the reactions and responses were genuine and honest.

I tell you, that House is something else. Meeting up with Wilson's ex. Plotting on him and Cuddy. That was kinda weird, but it appears House is being sincere in his actions (appears to be, mind you).I think that part did a good job at showing how pervasive his selfishness really goes, how it tears apart the lives of those around him, and is a good mirror to showing how his single-mindedness makes him a magnificent diagnostician and a bad doctor at the same time.


I can understand how Foreman would feel terrible with regards to being the main person responsible for killing the patient, so to speak. But House made some very good points. I know it sounds demented, but it was kinda good to see them lose a case if ya know what I mean. It was just crazy that the cause was something so simple that they overlooked/were unaware of. It shows how that they are indeed, not perfect. You can't win 'em all.They've lost a few in the past, but this one really highlighted that better because there was no saving grace to it, no science to be learned for House, no second patient to be saved by a sacrifice. Also, and I think this is crucial for the show, it cemented that Foreman is really House's protege whereas Chase and Cameron are not - sure, we've been shown before how Foreman is like House in some ways, but never to something this extreme in the way he treats illness. Also, I think it gave a little context to House's constant race-baiting Foreman as challenges to make Foreman a better doctor and scientist, it's ugly sure but it seems to not be so random now.


The end solution was so sad, and so disappointing for House to discover, I think he did a great job with that last part where he autopsied her and was disheartened to find such a mundane answer.

So, was Foreman's comment in the closing moments of this week's show a surprise or something expected?

Are you speaking of his "two weeks notice?" If so, I'd say a little bit of both. I think it was to be expected since he felt mainly responsible for killing that one chick. He never really healed from that wound. Then he found himself becoming and doing things more and more like House [like torturing that kid to get his marrow (even though both kids lives were saved)], and he didn't want to become a person like House. House also said something to the effect that if Foreman didn't get over it within 5 days or something, then he was going to fire him. I think I remember him saying something like that, but I could be mistaken. So no, to me it wasn't really a surprise...

I saw something like this coming. The season is really starting to wind down, I think there are only a few new episodes, then its over. There has to be some sort of story cliff hanger and I'd assume that the season ends with Foreman really leaving. Then next season it'll probably be them trying to get Foreman back. I'm sure they will have re-hired a new Dr. to replace Foreman (could be a cool special guest star) but he or she will eventually be replaced by Foreman again. Similar to what happened to Cameron in season 1, or was that 2? Of course this is just my speculation.

Anyways, I thought this past episode was excellent. Again, some really really good acting. The parents of the young boys did outstanding jobs. I even found myself tearing up. Very good and emotional episode. Great stuff.

House and that dog was something else.

The kid who had the marrow was sick but they knew what was wrong with him and how to treat him. But if they took a lot of marrow from him, then his body might not have enough to fight off the infection he had; leading to his possible death. Thats why Foreman told him, your brother was going to risk his life to save yours, are you willing to do the same? I know, it's kind of confusing, but do you get it? Maybe Bel Cam can explain it better.

Simple answer, the bone marrow is responsible for production of most cells involved in the immune response. Putting in a "sick" marrow would be putting in active cells intent on killing any not marked as self. The radiation usually wipes out all the marrow and lymphnodes, so he's got effectively no immune system and if just one part of the infection gets transfered, the infection will probably spread before the marrow takes and he's off imuno-suppressants.

At the end, they figure out why the younger brother is sick but they say he's too sick to give the donation, then Foreman takes the marrow anyway.

WildCat's answer doesn't explain why they said the younger brother couldn't be a donor at the end of the ep, right before Foreman took it anyway. Was it because he was too sick to take the anesthesia needed, that's why Foreman did what he did? What about the kid's fungal infection, won't that transfer to the older brother, isn't that one of the reasons they said the kid couldn't donate?

UKWildcat

Yes, and the kid needed his own marrow to help fight off his infection. I'm pretty sure thats why. I may have to rewatch it, I believe I still have it on my dvr. Now you are confusing me JT. :p lol

Yes, it will, I'm pretty sure anyways, but because they know what the infection was and how to treat it, I reckon they can treat if/when it gets transferred to the other brother. I think they also mentioned soaking the marrow in something to clean it/disinfect it and then they could give it to the brother, I believe this was earlier in the episode though. I'm not sure, I could have that part wrong.

Yeah, his "two-week notice" comment was to what I referring. I realized it was a cliffhanger possibility (like the "Who Shot House" one before... how did Dallas producers not sue them? :p ), and there'd been some hints that he was dissatisfied at the hospital.

The risk-reward comment to the kid wasn't what I meant, but if you think about it, most people would say "definitely, I'll save his/her life" if asked that. Can we go through with it, when the body touches the gurney? And if we're about 12 years old? Tough choice. Sorry to keep you in the waiting room so long, Wildcat.

And how does he survive fighting the fungal infection if he still has a compromised immune system?

pbarnard
05-06-2007, 07:53 PM
Usually, the fungal infection is fought by the non-specific/non-memory cells of the immune system. Your basically just making antibodies till one is made that binds to some antigen on the fungus. After that, you can than get the proliferation of the killer T's and macrophage recruitment (although a fungus maybe bigger than the macrophage's can chomp up). That's way oversimplified, but basics, all the cell production happens in the marrow, all the immune cell education happens in the lymph nodes.

I think the writers got confused because their medical advisers are confused. I know I'm confused and I'm studying the immune system in a physiology class in terms of regulation and stepwise.

Another excellent episode last night.

I love Foreman, but he can be a real as* sometimes. Like last night how he told Chase that he never did or will like him. He pulled the same stuff with Cameron last season, when he stole her article and published it or something (I forget exactly, memory is a bit fuzzy); his reaction/reasoning was very similar. I really hate that aspect of his character.

Wilson on those drugs about killed me. That was hilarious. lol

That was a pretty wild case, okay, when are they not wild? But you know what I mean. The chicks head exploding was a bit much.

That was a really wild episode, I totally dug it. I wasn't clear on how "she's always been" led House to figure out the suicide solution (Ozzy?) but it all played out very well. Heck, even Chase got to figure things out about characters, he was quite astute.

Bel-Cam Jos
05-12-2007, 09:15 AM
House has always realized that those around him find him blunt, crass, and arrogant, and he's reveled in that knowledge. But this week, he got his comeuppance (how do you spell that word?), when Wilson pill-slipped him, and House wasn't "himself." And perhaps Foreman now realizes that "bad House" isn't as bad as he thinks, but Foreman's struggling with how to remain true to his own nature, but use the "good, smart House" to his advantage (if Foreman checks a personal mirror, he'd see House and he are fairly similar).

This season is winding down nicely. What, do we only have one more episode, which airs in two weeks? I think I caught that portion, but I missed the preview for next weeks ep. I hope it's good, I'm sure it will be. I guess Foreman will be leaving us... I wonder for how long though?!?!? Like I said a while back, I can see him leaving the show and coming back several episodes later while House and Co. deal with Foreman's replacement (popular guest star?!?!?).

So they all quit. Were they residents? That's no big deal than. Were they fellows? Still not a big deal. Turnover should happen in hospitals. If House really is good for their careers they should be taking positions at other hospitals because they worked for House and his team should be poached quite often.

New season (is this #4?) starts Tuesday 9/25 in its normal time slot of 9pm after Bones.Not too bad for a season opener. Funnier than most Houses have been (two best: "Dr. Buffer" and 'ransoming' the patient for his guitar). Next week, from the preview, appears to have Chase/Foreman/Cameron as possible halucinations by House. But I will admit, as Cutty and Wilson went on and on about in the episode, House does need a team; all House and not much other cast makes this show a tad dull, boy.

JediTricks

I liked Wilson's behavior in this one, and ripping the pickups out of that guitar was a nasty ploy.

I can't wait to see House form his new team, even if we know who he picks (actor wise). I'm also anxious to see what ol' Cameron, Chase and Foreman are up to. Also curious to see if/what side story they develop this year and what actor/actress is going to join the group (similar to that of David Morse, Sela Ward, etc.)

I wasn't surprised he was fired either. Now to get rid of the "cut-throat b*tch", hehe. I hope Taub (I believe his name is, the older guy) stays around, he is great. I have a feeling Kal Penn and Oliva Wilde will stick around too, so I could see "cut-throat" leaving. It will be interesting to see how Number 13's (Wilde) illness plays a part, if it does at all, because she may not even be sick.

I know I/we haven't been posting in here very much lately, but I have thought that the last few episodes, including last night, have been fantastic. I'm really glad they switched up the format a bit, and added some new characters. The changes have made the show, now in it's fourth season, just as fresh as the first. I was hesitant at first, with the "axing" of House's original crew, but the season has played out beautifully and perfectly thus far; I'm really shocked and pleasantly surprised at how the show has not dipped in quality given the circumstances surrounding the show; it makes me feel good, especially since almost all the other returning shows on network television have been sub-par so far this season.

The last issue of Entertainment Weekly had a thing listing how many new episodes are left of all the shows. They list 5 for House. Not sure where they started the counting. I'm guessing that means we have 4 left now. The majority of shows (about 60%) had five or less remaining.

I'm enjoying the show, but this is the first season I've watched it other than a few reruns on USA. Entertainment Weekly had a lukewarm review of the new season, giving it a B minus. He liked he CIA episode though.

I can't imagine what that reviewer's looking for.I think rollercoastery was part of the complaint. He said the season has been uneven. He also said he went into the season, "a little sick of how the misanthropic diagnoses were becoming blurrily familiar," and that "TV-savvy viewers-i.e., everyone reading this-have guessed that House will fire all but the most familiar faces." I guess I must not be TV-savvy. His bets have been on Kutner (Kal Penn), Thirteen (Olivia Wilde), and Amber (Anne Dudek). Some episodes he thought were tedious, while others have been great. He dislikes most everything involving Foreman.

But who cares what critics think anyway?

JediTricks
11-24-2007, 02:13 PM
I wouldn't say it's been uneven just because it's had some ups and downs, that's par for the course in most series and this was a big change of direction for the show. I do admit that the diagnoses, ESPECIALLY the wrong ones, are getting too familiar, but the show is about the character more than the answer. And I also feel like the Foreman angle isn't working this season, they have some good ideas and it started out well enough, but it's gotten into a rut.

As for the familiar faces, I dunno, there was the old guy not-a-doc, he's a constant presence on TV and interesting as hell, yet he was cut. This season's been a faux reality show in that respect and I think it's working.

Yeah, January return.According to last night's rerun end-of-episode commercial, the next Tuesday begins three new shows. Hooray? Their tagline said a critic called this "the best House season ever." Is that because it may be the last House season ever? :(

I certainly hope it isn't the last season ever, that will be very upsetting. I know most of the actors (Laurie in particular) are in contract for another, fifth season, after the fourth wraps up (however that may be). But no telling what kind of impact the writer's strike has on this, I have no idea. I'm sure Fox will do everything to try and keep this show around though, since it is one of their best and most successful; it has been nominated and won several awards, Emmy's, Golden Globes, SAG and the like.

I am still very much looking forward to the new episodes, even if there are only 3.

The show makes Fox a mint with huge ratings and critical success, I cannot imagine them letting it slip through their fingers. They're just trying to space out what little they have left due to the strike - if they were smart they'd just settle the stupid thing instead.

This week's show was okay. It sure seemed odd to see a Christmas episode in late January. Next, they'll play the Super Bowl in February or something. Only two left, before the dark times, before the empty schedule.

UKWildcat

I enjoyed the show, thought it was pretty good. You're right, it really did seem odd seeing a Christmas show at that time.

I knew House put his name on all of the pieces of paper, and it was funny that they all got him gifts anyways (with exception to Foreman). Him squirting the milk in the girls mouth was pretty gross, given the circumstances. I thought it was pretty neat there at the end, where House's former crew and his new crew were mingling at the Christmas party.

So yeah, only two more episodes... :(

Mira Sorvino did a fantastic job I thought; I've always had a thing for her. :lipsrsealed: I had no idea who Wilson was gonna be with, so when that was revealed I was like 'ohhh, sh*t!!!", didn't see that one coming. And you are correct bel-cam, next week's teaser looked pretty good.

Agree 100% Bel-Cam. I will truly miss House during this writers strike hiatus, but I am confident that it will return, and when it does, it will still be excellent. I already can't wait!

Btw, I thought last nights show was excellent, as usual. I thought it was great how House was dead set on that idea that people can't change, but after that conversation with cut-throat b (and other factors), he realized that people can in-fact, change! Its great when (and how) House comes to such realizations. Good writing, which will definitely be missed. :(

Taub's character was on point in this episode too, dismissing their way of life/religion at first and starting to understand and accept elements of it. I love his character, and this episode caused him to realize some things as well.

Damn good show... :thumbsup:

I liked the line by Kutner about not being able to watch Star Wars anymore.

The previous episode with the gal in Antarctica got me thinking. With Valentine's Day coming up, there should be a greeting card that says, "I would drink your pee and drill a hole in your skull for your love."

JediTricks

Both of these were good episodes, the twist with Wilson's new gal was a really good one but how it played out in the next ep didn't quite work for me, it had some good notes but the song sounded a little strange overall. Still, I loved that House's obsession with being right about people nearly killed that woman, and it was only when he realized that her religious belief change might not be a symptom that everything really came together.

BTW, nice to see Laura Silverman (sister of Sarah Silverman) getting some network exposure finally. It took me a couple minutes to figure out why I recognized her.

I really liked last night's epi. Maybe it was withdrawls from no new Houses in a while. But I'd like to think that the interwoven storylines worked well, were easy enough to follow. That "secret" he was going to share? Was it ever actually mentioned, or just the commercial tease? I was guessing at symptoms and answers throughout the whole time. Good, good, good.

I thought last night's episode was really good. I liked how it was much more centered around the characters, as opposed the patient; I know, the patient had a lot to do with it. But we saw all of the characters interact a bit differently, which was nice. I know the show has revolved more around the patient, in the previous seasons, but I like how last nights episode switched it up a bit. Now I don't hope it keeps this format, as it will kind of stray from what the show has been about, but I wouldn't mind seeing more of this. Looking back, it was very smart for them to add new characters because the stories can now center around them and their relationships (which last nights episode kind of showed us). Last night's episode kind of showed us exactly why they added the new characters, and it is working! Did that make sense? Am I just rambling? Anyways, enough about the characters, they are great!

Moving along - The relationship between House, Wilson and Cutthroat B as taken some very interesting turns. I couldn't help but grin when Wilson was smiling at the end of the episode as he watched House and CB clean up that patient.

Again - I also liked how House's new crew was interacting with the old crew, I know they had in the past but again, this was different. You can tell they have become somewhat close(r) to one another.

The little back and forth between Chase and Cameron was good too, with regards to her sleeping with House (which, to my knowledge, never happened??!?! Unless I completely forgot about something). I like how they are still very much involved in the show.

But yeah, I thought last night's episode was excellent. Its definitely nice to have this show back, without a doubt, even if it is for a limited amount of time.

I just saw where it got almost 15 million viewers too, which isn't too shabby, and it lead in the 18-49 demographic. :thumbsup:

Yes. No.

Wilson is made out to be a pushover enabler sometimes, but he's smart in more ways than House gives him credit. That final look was a total Homer Simpson "hee hee" moment.

New crew is holding its own well. Although Foreman's situation is sad; I want him to bust out sometimes!

I think the House-Cameron issue was dealt with seasons ago. For some reason I recall it as a she-wanted-to but House-said-no scene.

I have set aside the next few Mondays just for that very reason.

Hey! Does that mean that I'm a demographic now? Sweet... :p

This most recent episode was a bit of a downer after the coolness of the previous one. Dull, fairly tame, under-developed. The teaser for next week's looks cool, though.

UKWildcat
05-07-2008, 07:02 PM
Yeah, I agree. I enjoyed the episode, but not as much as last weeks.

The whole thing with Wilson, CB and the bed was interesting. I like how she is wanting Wilson to be his own man and not try to constantly please her and take care of her, like he did with his previous wives (which we know didn't work out). I'm really starting to like her character.

I did like how House got this case wrong multiple times, even though he got it wrong, he got it right, by luck.

I thought it was neat how House got the TV from Cuddy, but it seems like he is going to have to give it back.

The evaluations were something else. I liked the reviewer, Rob Benedict, who played Calvin in the movie Waiting... (for those of you who have seen that movie). He's good people...

Looking forward to the next episode, looks cool indeed.

Gimmicky indeed, but I thought it was well done.

JediTricks
05-13-2008, 09:44 PM
Yeah, I was going to try to stay a little spoiler-free until we got a 3rd confirmed viewer, but Cuddy's stripper outfit was mighty decent - although I think the actress lost too much weight recently, she used to be more curvy (not that she doesn't look great, especially for 42 years old).

The "amber" reveal was a little cheaty, I mean, House's answer of "resin" made me want to gag, that was way too forced, luckily they got through it really fast.

I didn't quite buy Amber needing House to grab her hand, that seemed a little corny to me, it's an 8 foot drop from side to side, they treated it like an epic chasm.

It was kind of hard to tell because it looked like there were two crashes and they might have slowed things down at one point.

UKWildcat

Yes, but stripper Cuddy was on fire!!!



I thought House was reaching out to Amber because she was going to fall onto the street as the bus was skidding along, which would have probably killed her (her being pinned between the concrete and the bus); similar to MSP's impression. But that whole sequence was pretty wild and there was quite a bit going on so I could be interpreting it differently. I actually plan on watching this episode again (still got it saved on the DVR).

I should have picked up on the "Amber" necklace too, but I must be honest, I did not. Which probably made the reveal that much better for me.

I think when they first showed it, it reminded me of the mosquito in the amber from Jurassic Park, but I don't know if amber popped into my mind and I certainly didn't think of Amber. I was too intrigued by the beautiful dark haired woman, wondering who she was or what she represented.

The door was against the ground, did they rip the door completely off? That'd seem unlikely, and if she hit she'd just be pushed back into the doorwell anyway, and it wouldn't be much of a fall so the worst she'd have would be road rash.

Mad Slanted Powers
05-15-2008, 08:47 PM
I got the impression the bus was still moving and door was open. It would have been a serious case of road rash and perhaps some more serious breaks or other injuries depending on the speed of the bus. However, as UKWildcat said, it was kind of a crazy scene and hard to tell what all was going on with only one brief viewing.

That was quite possibly the best House ever. I sort of expected the end, but it still got me. One thing I couldn't believe, was the fact that Fred Durst was apparently in it, according to the credits, but I never noticed him. Was he the bartender?

I agree Bel-Cam, that episode ranks up there as far as one of the best episodes go.

I think that the ending worked for exactly that reason. We've come to expect surprises with House storylines, but this one had a closure that ended up just what it pointed towards. I was expecting something to be different, but when I realized there was no way that'd happen, that's when the emotional impact hit. Good writing, writers.

So what did everyone think of the premiere?

I thought it was a good show, not the best premiere, but still decent.

I do have a question, if someone can help me out. At the very end, Wilson says "We're not friends anymore." Was there any more dialogue after that? My DVR cut off and started taping Fringe, so I think I may have missed something. Thanks.

Wilson is probably my favorite character, behind House, and I hope he doesn't end up leaving the show. I have a feeling he'll end up returning to the hospital, and that he and House will fix their broken "friendship", even though he let House have it. I also wonder if this will make House change at all. We shall see.

I'm looking forward to the next episode, and hopefully it will strengthen the beginning of this season a bit.

JediTricks

I believe that was the end of the episode. The preview for next week had more going on there though.

I also felt like this was a whatever episode, and House's deus-ex-machina solution was a little on the obvious side. More importantly, the character interactions and behaviors felt like well-trodden territory, so we'll have to see how it plays out. I did like Cameron's explanation about how there is no right choice and it doesn't go away though, that worked really well.

House said 13's patient was "hot?" I don't know about that. Wilson tricking House was fun; I'll admit I didn't see that coming, sorry to say. The Cutty/Wilson scene at the end seemed so out-of-place to me, but it sets up several possibilities for future weeks (a quick shot from the next week's commercial might be interesting). Nothing really significant mentioned from the previous week, though.

One thing I've noticed; the new team actors' names are not mentioned in the opening credits. Unfair?

Ever have those times where you expect what happens, but still are surprised at how it turns out? That explains my reaction to this most recent episode.

What was the funniest line (not based on its subject matter but its delivery)? "Uh, I would like to buy some crackcocaine." :o

But we've got to wait two weeks? Arrgh! :upset: I predict that one of those folded choose-the-flap middle school who-should-date things will make an appearance. :D And that comment in the teaser (I think it's showing Cameron) about "what did you do?" makes me want to see it more. :addicted:

Can't believe I forgot to post about this week's new one. Once House had his near-the-end-of-the-episode "a ha" moment, I also figured it out. That "what did you do?" teaser from the commercial turned out to be not that big a deal, but the rekindling of Chase/Cameron is becoming a little interesting again.

House is a chicken, when the agoraphobic [sp?] patient can walk out of his front door (he left it open, though) and the famous doctor can't even [insert sqeaking puberty cracking voice] ask someone out on a date. Interesting dichotomy.

I can't believe they finally gave out 13's name. They had it scripted long ago but chose to not give it out, to keep it hidden, and only revealed it on a quick look at some piece of paper before this. It's not even a good name. :p

This was a good episode, I liked how House dealt with Foreman in this, it really taught him something, and I KNEW that was gonna be how it worked out but I liked it anyway. I have iron intolerance, but never went into convulsions and hallucinations, just threw up.

Dr. Remy Hadley. It's a sucky name. There may have been an ep where someone said it and House cut it off, I kinda remember that, but it was only her last name.

Bel-Cam Jos
11-23-2008, 10:02 AM
Well then. Let's play with the name. What could House call her, or reference in her name, at various times?

- R. Had, as in you "are had" when a patient lies/tricks/sneaks/manipulates her
- RH is an acronym for something related to blood, I think
- Remy-tism, like rheumatism, or something she often does, that he'd connect to her behavior
- You "Hadley" at hello, making a sappy Jerry Maquire-type scene comment
- Remy sleep., as in REM dream stage

See? The possibilties are endless. Except for the fact that I ended at those, and that they were awful. :D

Last night's was among the best in the series IMHO. There wasn't really the "surprise diagnosis" that's been throughout the years, just the threat of a hostage situation making things more stressed. I didn't have a problem with the "take me/do it to them" drama; it made 13's health situation even more telling. House/Cuddy (I always thought her name had 2 ts, not 2 ds, in it) was handled decently (and next week's humorous teaser is probably a good transition from this serious one), and the team's reactions to House's arrogance shows they're becoming more able and confident (and maybe even worthy of opening credits status? :rolleyes: ).

News flash: House is a jerk.

I figured out what he'd do, once the online patient was brought into the morgue, but was completed shocked (shouldn't have been, though) that he "continued" the rest of the "three hours paid for," instead of being a somewhat-gentleman with Cuddy. Wonder who will be the character who decks him at some point?

I liked the episode, but it's getting harder to find ANY gleams of good in his character lately.

I liked the episode, but it's getting harder to find ANY gleams of good in his character lately.House totally got them, that was awesome! I was hoping that was it, but they played it just right to leave ya wondering up until she lived, did House really bring her back to life?

I dunno if House engaged in the young lady's professional needs though, all we see is them basically chatting, it seemed like that was a TV moment where Cuddy thinks House has done the unspeakable but in fact he's been a noble guy. Of course, this is House, she knows who and what he is, so why that should surprise her if he does....


House's good points are also sometimes his bad points. He's driven, he's loyal when it's important, he's not willing to let niceties get in the way of gathering vital information, he's curious about the human condition, and because he dispenses with the surface emotions, when he has condolences they are extremely strong and cut to the core elements.

Best parts of last night's were all House's looks while "volunteering" for clinic duty. Virgin birth, eh? Was her name Shmi? They sometimes got under his skin about Cuddy, Wilson's gift, etc.

Another hook-up on the team? Aren't there rules against dating co-workers anymore?

Cuddy might get her child after all; that "Merry Christmas" comment by House on the way out actually sounded sincere.

It seems like there'll be no more new episodes until January. :( :hopeI'mwrong:

Did anyone else remember to watch this? Anyone? Hello?

I liked it. House got punked about his pipes at the end; but you know he'll just chalk it up to a "whatever..." worldview. I think that Cuddy might realize that she will need "someone" to help her raise the child (because I can't see her giving it up, not can I see her quitting completely), it's just who will that "somebody" be. It's becoming weird (in an A-Team plot kind of way) how Chase will only show up in an operating room right around the 35-minute mark each week.

But overall a good one.

JediTricks
01-23-2009, 07:59 PM
I barely caught it. I had forgotten about the day change, they put up billboards all around town the day AFTER it happened. Luckily, I had it on the radio in the living room when they mentioned it, and set the VCR just in time to tape it.

It was a good episode, I liked it, but it's hard to pinpoint anything that wowed me specifically. The part at the end with House realizing why the shower broke was good, but I fear you're right and he won't take that to heart even though it's important to his development. Foreman's sidestory was a frustration, not sure how they're gonna unbury that.

Good point about Chase showing up only at the midpoint in every ep.


So, I have a spoiler, I read it somewhere, not sure if it was IMDB news or AICN or what, but...
=== Cuddy and House finally have sex this season. Honestly, it seemed like they might as well go there since they've been leading up to it slowly enough. Not everybody out there actually has sexual tension with their friends just because they're of the opposite sex, but House and Cuddy clearly do. ===

Hmm, let's try to figure your feeling... Foreman appears to "love" 13, as House's advice mentioned, since he switched the placebo, but doesn't seem to be sharing much depth or feelings with her. Could that be it? Chase showed up before the halfway mark, and he was eating in the cafeteria instead of the operating room. How 'bout that? The fact that the Cameron-as-boss storyline appears dead after less than a full episode? Not fulfilling enough for you? We were teased that House might battle with the overly-positive special ed teacher patient, but he seldom spoke to her. Or the Cuddy wants the baby/doesn't want the baby/yells at the baby/baby "listens" to her/returns to work sooner. Any of those, JT? Or is it all of those? :(

Last night's was among the best in the series' history IMVHO. The patient's condition wasn't as much the issue as her decision to leave the profession. I guessed pretty closely to how Wilson would end the episode. No Cameron or Chase, but they'd have been an unneccessary distraction. House even showed some humanity at times. Quite a serious episode, but very well done.

Cameron as boss was definitely a letdown, it kinda made sense that she'd drop it but they really made her spineless there - I dunno if that was my anti-fulfillment though, they've made her stupid at times to make her unpredictable, so this was part of that. House's interaction definitely could have used more punch, and didn't pay off at the end with him not making a big enough deal out of her being a saint because of her disease, but that didn't bother me even if it wasn't part of the show's "pattern". Cuddy's storyline was cute in theory but really didn't have any impact in the episode. I guess it was really that, and the A-story for the patient felt kinda "whatever". Plus, House doesn't take that much crap from Cutner, not ever. :p



As to this week's episode, I thought it was an interesting episode, but House really didn't step in when he should have with his big arguments. The patient walking away from her work is something House absolutely doesn't seem capable of, yet there wasn't anything made of that. It's almost like House is kinda fading away to being a secondary character on the show behind all the other soap opera and dramatic storylines.

I sat on my couch, and at 8pm PST, I had on the FOX station (channel 11), waiting for House. There was the normal disclaimer about the show's content, but I was surprised at the violence aspect. Then, it proceeds to tell me that the events take place within a one-hour time period. I checked my television programming guide: it shows that House should be on then. But the TV's programming station shows back-to-back 24 episodes. What's all that about?

That Jesus freaked me out at the start! I was expecting the priest to fall over (since that's almost always what happens in the opening). Overall, this was a good steady episode, not too much for highs and lows. I was wondering just what House would do with Cuddy's event by the end; I think it was sad what his decision was. Foreman is getting stuck in between a lot of people; is this a lesson that you shouldn't do anything for love or one's own benefit?

I was frequently confused at this one, in a good way. Would/did House find out about 13/Forman? Was House really on heroin (I figured 'no way,' but then I wondered 'maybe')? I figured he couldn't leave the hospital, but then that doubt crept in again. Once more, the surprise diagnosis was a bit too abrupt, but it did allow House's actions at the start to make sense (somewhat).

Two weeks for a new one? Next week has nothing on TV of interest at all for me. Let's read instead! :thumbsup:

The highlight for me was the inclusion of the Soul Coughing song "$300". It sort of seemed appropriate, because of the line "How much, she said, for $300 I'll do it." The next scene after that shows that girl leaving his place. Actually, all the lyrics might be appropriate.

I actually liked how they dealt with that. My late grandfather became a crazy homeless person when I was a teenager and basically became a stranger (except when his section 8 neighbor and friend slit his throat ear to ear in his sleep, and he woke up and pinched it closed and they put him on horse tranqs which docs said should have knocked him out for days but just made him sane temporarily), it didn't matter who he was, he WAS a stranger to me by the end.

This was an alright episode, but letting the wife in to get her feelings hurt over and over got ridiculous, and there were a few times where explaining would have helped greatly. I liked the change in pacing (even though there were 2 major cliches, Chase in the middle and the "aha!" moment at the end) and I liked that House recognized his own behavior could be corrected in someone similar and acted on that. I also liked that House got Cuddy some wolf whistling, that was an interesting dynamic.

I actually expected this to be a little more monumental, it was a good ep but it felt like a rather by-the-numbers take on this sort of thing for House. Maybe that's the show in a rut, or maybe that's the show doing what it does best. I actually was thinking what House ended up thinking, but reading the behind-the-scenes that led to it, I am fairly confident that's not the case now and they made an interesting choice.

Eh, finding out the reason why he left in real life, to become the Public Liason Director for the White House, sort of takes some of the fun out of it.

But Entertainment Weekly goes into the discussion with the producers and actors as to why.

Bottom line: They don't want there to be an answer. Because of that, they want this singular event to shake up everyone's relatioship (of all types) and personal beliefs. It's an effective use of an old plot trick, one must die to change them all.

I wanted to comment right after watching it last night, but I literally decided (yeah, I literally put the word literally where it shouldn't literally be... literally :D ) to sleep on it first.

House is brilliant at solving medical cases, but I think he realized his skills don't necessarily translate to other areas of need (i.e. forensics, crime scenes). I was wondering if they'd go "dream sequence" on this one, but sadly was glad they didn't. Not because I dislike the character, but it'd have demeaned his personal worth if it had just been a what-if? scenario. Still, pretty rough to watch, especially since I was already in a funk from earlier in the day; I realized very early on that this episode wouldn't be funny in the least.

There was a teaser, an environmentalist collapses, and Cameron takes the case to House. The team is still dealing with Kutner's death, and Cuddy questions Cameron about her feelings towards House.

BTW, I was stunned to see Colleen Camp was the female patient. I had no idea she put on so much weight, she was a staple in movies back in the '80s which is how I best remember her, so seeing her in this was very surprising. She's still a good "in the trenches" actress, not too flashy, just gets the job done.

I couldn't believe it, completely shocked. I was like, "What?", "Holy sh*t!", for the first part of the episode (and after it ended too). I felt like I had been straight up sucker punched, out of no where.

Very emotional and gripping, which didn't let up. Taub breaking down at the end was a pretty powerful moment too.

I liked the cinematography of the episode, I thought it was very well done; the dreary lighting and etc. Very dark.

I immediately knew who he was playing when they showed his name in the credits, but I didn't recognize him in the opening scene. However, the very first shot after his credit was shown, I clearly recognized him.I realized who he was, right when I saw him, but I was surprised to see his last name credited. Is that a pun (instead of an apple a day to keep doctors away, meat loaf would do the trick? ;) ), or really his name?

And I remembered the teaser last night. But thanks for the reminders.

No, that's his real last name. His real first name is "Marvin", though he legally changed it to "Michael" a few years back.

This was a good "bridge" episode, between the shock of the suicide one and however they'll continue on. I was somewhat surprised to see what Cameron did at the end with Chase (I thought they'd make it more drawn out). Wilson may be a milquetoast sometimes, but he surely can be, as House so subtlely pointed out, a "manipulative [Amber]." :pleased:

Speaking of which, the next weeks's (nice try, BCJ, as it's TWO WEEKS from now :upset: stupid American I-Dolt) looks really weird. Looking forward to it.

I missed the first half, but the second half felt like it explained everything. I liked Wilson's little game with House, but Chase walking away so easily is such a piece of TV writing (I want to marry you, but even a slight deviation from the norm and I'm done!). I didn't quite buy that House wouldn't think of the rose thing though, if it already fit, he could have argued the guy pricked his leg walking by one and treated him anyway.

Tonight's supposedly brings back Amber in a dream/fantasy storyline, which should work well, as USA ran the two-part House-and-Amber-on-the-bus episodes to help me remember easier.
