House---"Living the Dream"---5/5/08

What? No Love for House?

Only 3 more episodes left this season. Next week is a 2-part season finale....I read the producers said it will be one of the more expensive episodes they have ever produced.

Tonight's episode synopsis:

Spoiler:


House believes that an actor (Jason Lewis) on his favorite soap opera is seriously ill after observing his symptoms on television, so he decides to intervene; Amber and Wilson have their first fight, much to House's delight; and Cuddy tries to keep up appearances when an inspector shows up unexpectedly at Princeton-Plainsboro.

Good episode. After last week's very weak episode, it's nice to see an episode that seemed much like an episode from the first 3 seasons instead of one from this season. (And an extra injection of Cameron and more of Cutty trying to hide House from professionals definitely helped.)

Much better than last week. I can't stand the Wilson/Amber story, though.

Next week looks great.

But Cam sort of looked like hell in the early portion of the episode, but I liked how she told House off.

You hit the nail on the head with that one!

One of the better episodes in quite a while.

I have always hated the Amber character. I hope they end her character soon. I think with this episode we saw the first seeds of getting back the O.G. crew next season and the loss of the new group.

Seems like this is said about every B-plot House has every had.

I can see why, but I like it myself. Wilson is interesting to me, and I like seeing him...do whatever it is he does.

Yeah, this season's story arcs have been really entertaining to me, whereas I'm usually driven to major annoyance by them (Chi McBride and David Morse's characters being the worst offenders).

The Amber plot is better than Tritter's, imo.

Cameron has looked like a crack whore all season, imo.

This episode certainly isn't getting much attention.

I actually would rank this in the top 5 eps to date! I thought House's actions were more random than before, which made them even more funny for me. Kidnapping the guy as a limo driver and then dead-sticking him in the elevator while talking to Wilson about CTB!

The scene at the end with Wilson and CTB was one of their best to date. I actually felt like it was real. I also feel like this plot has brough him to the front and rounded him as a character. I especially liked her line to him she can take care of herself and that she needs him to take car of him!
