I wasn't too thrilled to hear LL Cool J would be a guest star on the first episode but it doesn't look too bad! Hopefully the "celebrity guest" patient of the week won't become a trend. the show is strong enough without that kind of thing.

I'll be on board for this tonight but I think I'm going to pass on the lead in series premier of Bones. This show which features a cranky, abrasive forensic anthropologist, (picture a female House who works with bones rather then living patients) is not what I need right now. I'm CSI'd out.

I am not a fan of gimmick guest stars either.

I caught up with House over the summer, and loved it. Definitely one of my favorite shows now. Can't wait for it to return, but I really hope that the rumours about

Spoiler:
Chase and Cameron getting together


are false.

I'm not her secretary, I'm her assitant; I graduated from Ruetgers.

I didn't know they had a secretarial school



Dr. Cameron as always

A solid ep. Good for those of us that are returning from season 1, but I think it was a little weak when it comes to hooking the newcomers that are checking it out for the first time.

Very good episode. The banter between House & LL when drinking the Johnny Walker was great.

Barely recognized Cool J and he wasn't too bad. He didn't have a lot to do besides be in bed though.

Funny when House did the Scooby Doo "Ruh oh!"

Good stuff! Right up there with last season. LL did a much better job than I expected!

"Ruh Roh"

Pretty good premiere. Like the addition of Sela Ward in the hospital so far.

That killed me, right in the hallway with all those people carting the death row inmate!

I've been a little apprehensive about them bringing his ex-wife in, but as long as they keep her happily married and just stick with the patients stories, I'd like them to keep her around. For one thing, they've needed a lawyer on this show. A doctor like House would have to be dealing with lawyers constantly. They made the fact that she's his ex-wife work well in this episode.

So glad to have this show back!

Good episode...anyone else think Cameron ISN'T that attractive? I remember some line last year where she said to House something like 'I know I'm good looking so why don't you like me' something like that. Was the first episode I saw.. wasn't that into it yet so wasn't paying much attention. But nothing worse than someone who thinks they are super hot but are just average.

Good episode. I just got done watching the first season on DVD and it brought me right into this. House drinking with LL was pretty entertaining. I kind of missed House in the clinic though.

If anyone thinks she isn't hot, I refer them to the Big Jim Girl of the Week thread in the Adult Forum. That should change their minds.

Good, overall episode with House as the catalyst for some good old fashion needling humor that derived from last season's relationship history amongst the 3 females in the cast, plus the pasts of the 3 male doctors. The zingers almost always get laughs from me, not bad for a medical drama.

Good ep. Are we supposed to forget that Chase turned heel during last season?

And Cuddy continues to be the most unconvincing hospital administrator in TV history.

I thought that's why House sent him to the prison, besides his pretty mouth

Ex-GIRLFRIEND. And it has been pretty well publicized that she is only a "special guest star" and not a permanent cast addition (much like Chi McBride last season).

No love for LL Cool J? You don't consider 5 seasons in the leading role of In The House enough to give him acting cred? Man, you guys are harsh!
