House: Is He Back In The Game?

It felt good to be back at Plains Borough Hospital in the midst of a medical conundrum… but without House?!? When House announced to Cuddy and Foreman that he was quitting, I thought, “What are those writers up to?” Well for one, trying to find House a new hobby. In House’s need for distraction from his leg pain we found ourselves getting hungry in the kitchen with Chef House and his roommate Wilson. As always, the intelligent and witty dialogue between House and Wilson was exemplified in the cooking class scene with House’s adolescent references prevailing. It was refreshing to see that House’s rehab had not taken away his urge to pull practical jokes on Wilson; House just wouldn’t be House if he weren’t obtain dog urine to pass off as his own.

In House’s absents as the head of the Diagnostics team, the trio, Foreman, Thirteen and Taub, show signs of hardship as they try to settle into the new hierarchy. With Foreman at the helm, he and thirteen have issues finding Switzerland in their professional lives, causing road bumps in their personal lives. Can their relationship last like this? I guess that’s what Foreman was pondering too when he fired his girlfriend from the Diagnostics team. Come on Foreman, that’s just cold. And Taub? He tells Foreman that he came to work with House and is leaving the hospital for private practice. Is that his final answer? With all this action about, the writers managed to throw in a dig at Jeremy Piven in reference to mercury poisoning.

As the show came to a close, we found ourselves back in therapy with House who was still searching to find something to hold his interest and his pain at bay. In session, House revealed a reward check of $25,000 for solving the Diagnostics team case from his computer. In revealing his discovery that practicing medicine can squelch his pain, I smiled and thought: He’s back! I can’t wait for next week to watch House take on James Earl Jones.

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.
