Paging Dr. House
After the poignant closing of last season with House voluntarily admitting himself to a Psychiatric facility, viewers patiently waited for the shows return to watch House cause chaos and mayhem in the halls of the Psychiatric ward. Well, we were not disappointed. House’s scheming mind poked and prodded his fellow inmates in his rebellion, as usual, against authority and order. In an awe-inspiring performance by Hugh Laurie, we felt House’s ache and his heart sigh. His transformation from the conniving man-child to a coping, functioning, and feeling human being was subtle and beautiful. The well-written and well-acted episode was a perfect platform to send viewers back to Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital. Although, I was hoping we would spend more time with the doctors and lovable, mentally skewed characters of the ward. You never know, maybe we will.
