House 5/3/05

I'm suprised there is no thread for this yet.

I just have one question. For those who watched, where else was that pregnant girl from? It was driving me nuts the whole episode.

Everywhere. Most recently on 24. She was also in The Patriot, along with a whole bunch of guest starring roles on TV.

I thought it was a very good strong episode, right up until the end, which I did not like. I am referencing the House-Cameron encounter.

I agree. I know everyone wanted Cameron to return, myself included but she basically resorted to sexual harassment in the end which seems a tad out of character.

Ah, I think that's it! Thanks.

Was she Mel's daughter in The Patriot?

Yes. She was also the daughter of Michael Douglas in Don't Say a Word.

It also seems to be quite unnecessary, if not harmful, to the entire dynamic of the show.

I loved this episode. House commenting on Cuddy's "funbags" was hilarious, as well as his interviews for the job opening.

Glad to see Cameron back, and i'm actually happy to see them continue an awkward relationship rather then just her coming back and completely ignoring the attraction.

Strange thing for me is that I felt I got to know more about the people they inteviewed in those 10minutes then Cameron or Chase or Omar Epps during the whole season. They need more character development.

Question:

I don't watch this show, but i'm curious why there are viewer discretion warnings for every single episode...does it have anything to do with House's bug-eyed look of shock that ends every single promo?

Actually I don't remember the view discretion for the first few episodes but they've been pretty rampant lately. I'm guessing with last night's ep a 12-year-old not only having sex but having an abortion as well earned it the sexual expliticit tag

Cuddy does have a nice rack, they really should have her wearing more tops like that =) I enjoyed the episode and I'm also glad to see cameron come back to the crew.

They need her back to create conflict with the arrival of Sela Ward.

Has to do with the 12 yearold having sex. Which is generally frowned upon in American TV

Okay. Well, that makes sense...but what about the rest of the episodes? I'm serious. Since I watch FOX on Sundays, Mondays and, before they shit on Tru Calling, Thursdays, every promo ends with the "viewer" warning..

Problem is that the warning Spoiled the 'shock ending'

Regarding the Viewer Discretions, some of the previous episodes have had some intense medical stuff. I remember watching the episode where they graphically cut the opening for a tracheotomy. I've never seen ER but I'm sure that scene was on par with some of the more gruesome stuff ER shows. It was on par with some of the more gruesome stuff I've seen on CSI. There was an episode where they withdrew fluids from an eye with a needle. Other than those I'd say it doesn't warrant a much of a viewer discretion.
Everyone I've turned onto this show has gotten hooked but it takes a couple of episodes to keep them hooked. It was the same way for me, so I'm glad it is doing so well. You should give it a try for at least a couple of episodes.

Pfft, when I was 12 I was having sex with all kinds of chicks. Granted, they were imaginary, But I was still banging the bejesus out of them.

It was probably one of the pre-AI episodes so most people hadn't seen it yet.

I thought it was good.

House making fun of Cuddy's chest and Wilson getting stuck with all the interviewie's was pretty funny.

I don't see the problem with the last scene. Cameron has been the aggressor in the relationship the entire time

so she got a abortion at the end, right? I know there is a privacy issue somewhere, but don't her parents need to notified of her pregnancy/abortion because she is a minor ?
