House -- "Moving the Chains" -- 02/01/10

Photobucket

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
House and the team rush to treat an ailing college football star in time for the patient to compete in NFL tryouts. But when the patient experiences an onslaught of varied and unusual symptoms, the team has trouble reaching a consensus on how to effectively treat him in time. Meanwhile, Foreman's brother Marcus (Orlando Jones) makes a surprise visit to the hospital.


An interesting note, Next week's episode will be through the perspective of:

Spoiler:
Cuddy
And it will also be taking a 3 week break after next week as well.

No move that scribble one cast member over to the left and I'll love this show like I did a few years back.

Hey I like 13.

Regarding Jennifer Morrison:

Spoiler:
She will return for 1 more episode later this season to officially add closure to her character. She said in an interview I read that it's extremely unlikely she will return in any capacity next season.

Well, that sucks if true.

(And given that Thirteen was basically used as a pseudo-Cameron in last week's episode indicates that her character is still in the minds of the writers, almost like they miss her.)

Why do we still need the character on the far left?

What Taub and Chase? I guess I can see what your saying, but Foreman IMO is still needed and Wilson is House's right hand man.

Somehow my DVR did not record House. Its in my listing, but there is nothing there and its claiming it got interrupted. Yet it managed to get Chuck, 24 and Heroes no problem. UGH!

Kudos to Cuddy for knowing about Wilson swiping the place out from under her, and getting some payback.

Cuddy did not get any payback and she did not ask for retaliation either. Her boyfriend Lucas did all the pranks behind her back and worse still, made both House and Wilson believe that Cuddy does not know that they got the condo. So Lucas is using that as blackmail to get away with the pranks and who knows what else in the future.

I didn't really care for this one. The case wasn't interesting, the stuff with Foreman's brother wasn't interesting, and I couldn't believe House was dumb enough to not consider Cuddy's boyfriend right off the bat.

This.

And while I'm not a 13 hater and not even sure where that comes from, I truly miss Cameron.

My wife and I picked up all the seasons on dvd when Amazon was selling them for like $14 during the holidays, previously we'd been holding out for Blu, and watching the whole thing from start to finish, made me appreciate her character even more. I can't understand why they thought the show would be better without her.

The case itself was moderately interesting. But, I enjoyed this episode alot. The banter between House/Foreman and Wilson was pretty good and there were some good 1-liners.

I agree it was pretty dumb of House not to recognize that Lucas was behind the pranks.

Exactly. Once it being Wilson was eliminated, I thought it was blatantly obvious that Lucas was the prankster doing it because of them buying the condo out from under Cuddy yet House never figured it out. Not figuring it out was very un-House-like behavior.

That really sucks because House has a ridiculously long 8-day delay before showing up on Hulu.com, so this episode won't be online there until Tue Feb 9th.

Nice subplot with Foreman and his brother. I enjoyed Taub's snarky comments. Those pranks by Lucas were just cruel and mean. Loosening the hand rail designed to help a disabled person in the tub, I didn't find that funny at all. I hated the fact that he tripped House while he was in the cafeteria too; he could have been seriously hurt.

Minor nitpick--the post season games for college players don't matter that much. The practices and their own individual workouts and tests(NFL combine) matter much more. So in this case, the game was really as important as the POTW made it out to be.

All in all a watchable episode.

Yep. I don't know if it was the writers' intentions or not but Lucas is now just an asshole.

Agree about Lucas. The guy is just a dick now after playing those pranks and practically rubbing it in House's face that he got Cuddy.

How did Lucas set off the sprinklers in the condo?

i'd imagine there is some sort of manual reset thing you can do in an emergency. probably tied into a waterline going into the building or something.

i'm enjoying having all 4 people on the team, there. i used to think that having 3 was almost too many, but the dynamic is nice now.

I concur. I like having Chase back on the team - his character has brought little splices of humor lately.

I didn't like Lucas all that much back when he worked for House a season ago, but now I just hate the guy.

And a criminal. I don't care what he thinks he can do- his GF can bail him out of jail.
Causing a flood in a multi-story building would cause, you know, a lot of property damage not just to your "targets."

I was not a fan of how the soldier plot line ended up.

Isn't that what we wanted? Lucas is the the 'enemy' in the way between cuddy and house or something.
