House – S04E06 – Whatever It Takes Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

It isn't very often that two cases are tackled in one episode, so I was very pleased to see the writers change things up a bit this week. While the team worked on a female race car driver, House took a little field trip to the CIA. Yeah, I'm serious. He was escorted to the CIA headquarters to help diagnose a CIA agent who is gravely ill. The CIA plot was not only intriguing, but there was a lot of ... Read More

With Foreman back at Princeton-Plainsboro, House was ready to see him leave immediately. Cuddy didn't back down though, particularly because one of his patients died recently. She knows Foreman is bright and necessary to help House diagnose patients. This didn't stop House from trying to get Foreman to quit. I'm rarely surprised by House's actions, and there wasn't anything new or different about what he tried to do. Applying pressure to Cuddy by creating a fake cafeteria ... Read More

House – S04E04 – Guardian Angels Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Tonight's patient seemed to be able to see ghosts. No, really. She appeared to be able to see her deceased mother and Dr. House's non-existent Grandfather, Walter. I was really intrigued to see how the team would go about determining the cause of the woman's problems. On the other hand, I was really disappointed by the cause... something in stale bread. Something in the bread is common with what is in LSD and caused the woman to ... Read More

House – S04E03 – 97 Seconds Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

The medical mysteries presented on House can sometimes be very difficult to solve, sometimes requiring an entire episode to resolve. This was very different in tonight's episode. One of the candidates, Dr. 13, correctly diagnosed the sickly man in the first eight minutes of the show. The problem came when she gave the man the medicine to treat his problem. As she turned away, the man's dog took the medicine instead. This resulted in not only the ... Read More

With no diagnostics team to speak of, House was forced to bring in a number of candidates for the job. The candidates, who ranged from all ages and races, filled a small room. House asked them to properly diagnose the late actor, Buddy Ebsen. This task quickly changed when he gets an actual patient, Greta, an Air Force pilot. She has dreams of getting into NASA. It's not very common for someone in Greta's situation to come ... Read More

House – S04E01 – Alone Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Last season's finale left us all wondering about the team. Foreman and Cameron quit and Chase was fired. What were they up to? What was House going to do? We only got the answer to the latter question: go on by himself, of course. And frankly, why not? This week's medical mystery wasn't that surprising in my opinion. The case was complicated by the fact that the identity was mistaken. An office building collapsed, crushing all ... Read More

House – S03E24 – Human Error Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

This week's patient comes to House in a rather unusual manner, via the U.S. Coast Guard. A Cuban couple tried to make it to the U.S. from a boat, which was hit by a storm and the engine stopped working. The simple fact that House was sought out by a foreign couple strikes me as bizarre, quite frankly. There hasn't been a whole lot that leads me to believe that House has any kind of fame within the U.S. ... Read More

Categories: Episode Reviews

Dr. House and his diagnostics team had quite a case on their hands this week. A teenage male, Nate, was brought to Princeton-Plainsboro after a chess match went terribly wrong. After soundly defeating his opponent, Nate hopped to his feet and brutally assaulted his opponent with the clock used to time the chess match. Nate was complaining of a terrible headache. Although we didn't get to see the chess match in its entirety, it was enough to demonstrate the young ... Read More

House – S03E22 – Resignation Review

Things looked bad for Foreman in last week's episode. He didn't like the way things went when he lost a patient and thought he was turning into House. In this week's episode, "Resignation," Foreman signs the paperwork to officially resign. Despite his official resignation, Foreman helps House, Chase, and Cameron on their case. It involves a young female boxer who suddenly drops to the ground and excessive amounts of blood come rushing out of her body. The doctors do ... Read More

With the passing of a patient from the previous show, House and company are faced with another difficult case. A young African-American male is in a clean room, ready to receive his brother's bone marrow when all of a sudden the "healthy" brother sneezes. The doctors quickly test the young man to see if anything is wrong with him, because any donated bone marrow may very well kill the person receiving the marrow. When it turns out the kid ... Read More
