"House" 3/1/05

Good episode. I like how we're getting a closer look at the personal lives of the characters. I had a hard time believing that MILF could have a kid that looked like Bilbo Baggins.

Don't you mean how Batmanuel (Nestor Carbonell) could be the father of Juni Cortez (Daryl Sabara) of Spy Kids?

Another great episode. I'm so glab FOX actually EXTENDED a good show's season rather than cutting the season short and cancelling it!

Thankfully this good show actually pulls in solid ratings

Anyway, another great episode. I agree that it's great how each episode is providing more information on each of the characters. House's involvment was interesting as well.

The day they announce a "House: Season One" DVD release will be my early Christmas.

I'm mildly annoyed by the constant "Withholding information" aspect of the show, but it's still damn entertaining.

Seemingly the highest rated episode yet (it's been growing with consistency) with over 15m viewers. Makes it Fox's highest rated scripted show.

"I just like to know things"...what a great line. Man, this show's dialgoue is great. Bummer about getting a rerun next week though. Anyone know how many weeks until the next new one? I hope we aren't dealing with another "lost" situation here.

"It's Batmanuel!" was the first thing I said too.

I knew the kid looked familiar.

Even though House is an ass, this is the first ep where I didn't like him. He was an extra ass this go round it seemed. I can't help but think these are the worst doctors ever and the greatest doctors ever. Every week they nearly kill someone just to make them better. I want to see them lose one (outside of that one baby). I know it's going to happen, but I can't wait for the tension.

I will say it cause somebody has to each thread...this formula has got to get stale eventually but I'm loving it now . Also I think I'm mildly in love with Cutty.

Necessary evil, unfortunately. The original episode order from FOX was 14 (this was episode 13). I think they'll try to space out new episodes and repeats as much as possible so they can catch up on the production end (they need 8 more new episodes to get to the complete 22 episodes ordered by FOX). Considering the American Idol lead-in audience probably missed the first seven episodes of the season, these repeats will be new to them!

I also liked the line "that's why I purposely decided to not have a personal life" probably not exact, but close enough. Great show, I love watching it.

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Fox's "House" will stay open for another season.
The network has given a second-season pickup to the medical drama starring British actor Hugh Laurie as a pill-popping maverick who often alienates patients and colleagues with his acerbic tone and antisocial behavior.

Since its premiere in November, "House" has showed steady ratings growth, accelerated by the arrival of "American Idol" in January as its lead-in. This week, the series drew 15.6 million viewers, its largest audience to date.

"'House' is doing really well behind 'Idol,' it's having fantastic retention from the first half-hour to the second half-hour," Fox entertainment president Gail Berman said. "It's a tremendously well-produced television show with broad appeal and a fantastic creative team behind it."
