  • Act Your Age--still one of my favorite episodes to date.

    10
    Act Your Age still remains my favorite episode today. The main guest star in this episode, Bailee Madison, is a brilliant actress. She portrayed six-year-old Lucy, and was amazing at it. There was a scene where Lucy was having a stroke. I very nearly cried for her; she looked so helpless and sad.
    Aside from Bailee, the entire plot was very interesting. I was curious to see all the aspects the doctors chose to follow through with when examining Lucy (and eventually, Jasper). I also liked the plotline of Chase and Cameron. They clearly did not get along, and House sort of pushed them together to work. I loved that Cameron took the flower from Jasper, just to spite Chase. It was a classic scene, the satisfied smirk on Cameron's face, and the annoyed expression on Chase's. :) All in all, awesome episode, 10/10!
  • Cameron and Chase break up

    10
    I loved this episode- it was easily one of the most funniest and entertaining of the Season.

    The case was a very interesting one, with the kids acting older. I love the boys acting and his crush on Cameron, causing him to slap her rear- brilliantly written and acted!

    I thought the twists and turns were very interesting, making the case stand out more than they have done recently.

    Meanwhile, the backstories were also good- Cameron and Chase have broken up and have started sniping at each other. I sincerely believe in Chase's feelings towards her, but I have no idea what Cameron feels back, or whether she has/is developing feelings for Chase.

    House and Wilson had some of their best dialogue since the time when Wilson moved in- House winding up Wilson by sending him flowers was a classic! I think House's feelings for Cuddy are deepening, especially at the end when he asks her to a play. I don't think Wilson does have feelings for her- I think its just he and House playing games on each other!

    Overall, one of the best episodes of the Season- a classic.
  • To me this Episode is sick. I will possible get thumbs down for this review.

    1.0
    Terrible show and the show was sick. I just saw this on syndication last night. The whole thing with the kids hormone problem made me sick. That is impossible to happen to the girl if her dad was take hormone cream that had testosterone in them. It is the reverse that should of happened, she should of been the one getting into fights as well as the boy and she should of not started puberty. Even with the boy. That young of age, hormone imbalance should of not cause any on those problems with either the boy or girl. With a hormone imbalance problem you likely not to be attracted to either sex. None of those serious conditions in the show are even remotely possible with a overdose of hormones. Even less possible is getting it from the cream, the dad took a shower. I am surprised the censors let it be on at all. I had a look away a few time because the show made me sick and wanted to puke.
  • Great episode, one of my favorites

    9.5
    If there ever were to be a list of top ten episodes of house, this should be in the top three, if not the top episode. The lines are great "Do you have hair in your private place...Ms Janie" Classic. House at his best. Hes playing tricks on wilson, insulting cuddy and keeping up the banter with his troops. Also, the little girl is adorable and played everything brilliantly. I couldnt figure it out that it was the father. the episode was brilliantly written and acted out. It should have gotten Laurie more attention by Hollywood award shows. A classic!!!!
  • The aftermath of Chase & Cameron's breakup.

    8.0
    This episode was pretty settling after the episode before this. Chase & Cameron are broken up, and House does anything to embarrass them to keep them together, and they almost do, Cameron reveals that she does still have feelings for Chase but there is no way they'll go back together, about the patient, a little girl filled with hormones, that was pretty gross, just cause the Dad was with another girl, I love the little brother, all biting Chase like crazy, that was funny. The end when Chase gave Cameron flowers was so sweet. Great patient illness, an amazing episode with great symptoms & illness.
  • Com House de volta, temos mais um excelente episódio, não tão sensacional quanto Airborne mas muito bom.

    9.1
    Com House de volta, temos mais um excelente episódio, não tão sensacional quanto Airborne mas muito bom.Este foi mais um daqueles episódios que você acha que a pessoa que vimos no começo vai ser o paciente quando na verdade é outra.A cena inicial mostrava um garoto com um nariz que não parava de sangrar numa escolinha, o pai do garoto, chamado pela professora,estava tentando parar o sangramento.Uma garotinha chega e começa a falar com o homem.É a filha dele, ele ignora e diz para a filha sair de perto.E então ela começa a passar mal, e vemos que o paciente da semana será ela.Adoro quando essa surpresa acontece em House.

    No hospital, tudo…volta ao normal.Com o fim do relacionamento entre Chase e Cameron, os dois voltam a discordar e provocar um ao outro mais do que nunca e House adora isso, pois coloca os dois trabalhando sempre juntos agora.
    E fora do caso, como sempre há sempre uma história.E desta vez, a história de House foi ele querendo saber se Wilson e Cuddy estavam juntos ou não.Tudo isso foi simplesmente hilário.House mandando flores para Wilson para que ele pensasse que fosse Cuddy, depois, Wilson indo até o escritório da chefe de House com a intenção de beija-la, e o engraçadissímo díalogo dele e de House no refeitório.Foi mais ou menos assim:
    House: Did you sleep with her? (Você dormiu com ela?)
    Wilson: Yes. (Sim.)
    House: Seriously? (Sério?)
    Wilson: No. (Não.)
    House: Yes, you did. (Sim, você dormiu…)
    Wilson: Yes…I sleep with her. (Sim…eu dormi com ela.)
    House: Seriously? (Sério?)
    Wilson: No. (Não.)
    Hugh Laurie e Robert Sean Leonard arrasaram neste episódio e o melhor foi mostrar que os dois personagens não mudam seu jeito de ser mesmo depois de todo esse rolo.Já virou costume a zoação…

    Voltando ao caso da garota, depois de tentar fazer de tudo eles descobrem cortes profundos no orgão genital da garota.A equipe se espanta, e na casa da garota ainda encontram uma camisa manchada de sangue.Depois de muitas especulações descobrem que a menina já entrou na puberdade.Seus pêlos pubianos começaram a nascer e ela tentou corta-los com a tesoura e já havia menstruado.Mas faltava muito para a garota completar pelo menos 10 anos.E chegar na puberdade.O que estava acontecendo?E então, o irmão dela, o garotinho que tinha o nariz sangrando acabou ficando do mesmo jeito.Ele também não havia chegado aos 10, mas já era agressivo e tarado (a cena dele "enchendo a mão" com a bunda da Cameron foi impagável - quando o ator tiver uns 15 anos poderá se considerar alguém de muuuuita sorte).A resposta estava no pai.Ele estava tendo um caso com a professora dos filhos, a moça havia feito uma depilação no buço, e para aguentar o ritmo da moça o pai usava um creme masculino, carregado de testosterona.
    Os resíduos do creme acabavam ficando em toda a pele do pai das crianças, que quando abraçava ou tocava nelas de qualquer forma, acabava deixando eles com testosterona, que é pouco para ele, mas uma quantidade absurda para as crianças.Uma resolução simples e criativa.

    E terminamos o episódio com House dando uma "brecha" para Cuddy.Será que ele quer mesmo um relacionamento com a chefinha?Episódio excelente, último antes do arco dos episódios finais começar.
  • Chase attacked by "Sociopath"

    9.1
    Adored the storyline. It was gripping and different from most. Two kids with hormonal issues. Yay. Somehow I prefer it better when it involves kids. *Shrugs* What Foreman said was really accurate and all. Chase was pretty daft not to notice. It's true, Cameron has feelings for everything, why not like Chase? The flowers Chase gave Cameron? Sweet. Jasper gnawing at Chase? Cool. Cameron INTENTIONALLY making Chase jealous and being very dog-like. Not cool, in fact, it was disturbing. Quite out of character if i may say. Cameron doesn't seem like the type who would do that.

    Cuddy & Wilson?

    Wow.

    Over all it was a good episode, one of my favourites.
  • Season 3 Episode 19

    9.0
    I simply adore House when he doesn't act his age! He is so funny. Is House, Cuddy and Wilson's friendship turning into a new triangle?! Who knows... What I do know for now is that their dialogues are just great. The best point was House sending flowers to Wilson pretending to be Cuddy. Such a manipulative soul. LOL

    Cameron is afraid of a possible real relationship with Chase. Not a big shocker, actually. I just wonder how long the writers want to drag this storyline. Anyway, Chase was definitely sincere and kind of cute.

    The medical case held my attention, since it was unpredictable enough. I like when kids are involved, because I think it adds a lot of drama and 'life' to the show.
  • Great story and lot of tension

    9.3
    I like the way this episodes was build - we start with kid with bloody nose and end up with his sister in cramps. And the way it seems much worser and how little thing can be very bad for children.

    It was defenetly fun to watch Chase and Cameron and that little boy + fantastic choice with the title.

    Mmm.. I most say in this time I am having troubles to say much more as it feels - it was great episode and defenetly well written but I just do not have any special memory or anything special with this one. I would have said it is over avarage if there isn't the choice of well written.

    Anyway.. enjoyable, exciting...
  • Dr. Cameron: Yeah, and I want you to profess your love for me. Oh, wait, you already did that and it caused me to end our relationship.

    9.3
    I am an avid fan of Chase and Cameron love team because it seems so real rather than House and Cameron, its like Grissom and Sara in the making. It was painful to watch Chase finally let go of Cameron. Because his feelings is pure for Cameron and wants more than having sex but actually having a real relationship. But as unwritten rule -there is only two things happens when colleagues get into relationship - they work harmoniously in a while then they destroy each other when things get out of hand. There is only 1% chance of survival.
  • Great House/Wilson/Cuddy moments compensate for a mediocre medical story.

    8.5
    I doubt this episode will become one of the show's classics, yet it provided lots of classic House moments. 

    The medical story was far from original: it's the second time this season that Sara Hess is giving us a young girl in distress, and I don't even want to start counting how many other kids we had this season. I think the quota for dangerously ill kids and hysterical blond females has been filled for at least another year.

    The same goes for the plot repetitions in order to make a (pretty insignificant) point: do we really need to emphasis House going home and leaving the team to work on the case by BOTH Chase and Foreman doing the very same? or House's sending flowers to Cuddy by the boy giving Cameron flowers? Get over it already writers, will you? It just makes things so predictable and boring.

    And as for other silly plot lines - is Cameron all of a sudden the new boss or what? She can decide on a brain surgery for the kid all by herself? How real or intelligent is that?! And the dead husband routine.... Eeewww. Let the poor man rest in peace already! Didn't he suffer enough by having to see Cameron by his bed side till the very last moment?!    

    And then there's the unavoidable/boring Chase/Cam never ending "romance", that leaves Foreman at the back once again. He's pretty frustrated and cynical, yet unfortunately it doesn't prevent him from wearing those horrible pastel shirts and silk ties.... Or maybe it's the other way around and he's put at the back for his complete lack of taste? Could very well be. Think about Foreman, and change it all asap for everyone's sake!

    BUT - yes, there's a but here for a change - there are still a lot of good things about this episode, and they all flaw from the very important ingredient that was almost forgotten lately - real humor.
    - House's "dead wife" line was great!
    - House-Wilson's interactions and dialogues were brilliantly twisted and hilarious (seriously???? -:) )
    - House beaming with "they published my letter!" when the "newspaper's" headline is "Pterodactyl terrorizes citizens" - is soooo funny! (and finding out that the pterodactyl is also called the "winged finger"(!) or that it's a "flying reptile, not a dinosaur" makes this even funnier!)
    - House and Cuddy's dialogues and the May-Sept lines - great!

    So, to sum it all up, what keeps this episode from being mediocre is seeing House laughing for real and seeing his mischievous side once again after so long. A great compensation for all the rest, not only on this specific episode.
    I just love it when he doesn't act his age.
  • Wilson&Cuddy / House&Cuddy - I don't get it...

    8.1
    I don't really get the triangle that's building up there. Well, I obviously missed something in the earlier seasons. Why is House asking Cuddy out now that Wilson is somehow getting involved with her? And what is that strange bond between Cuddy and Wilson? I don't get it...
    The medical story was strange, I absolutely didn't like it...
    Usually I can see through characters quite well, but not Cameron. I really don't get what she wants. I still don't think that she's the type of woman for this casual thing they had. But I doubt that she doesn't have any feelings for Chase. Maybe she's just too afraid. Or could it be that she still is still hung up on House? I don't know. And I'm feeling kinda sorry for him, he's trying so hard, but I'm not so sure she even really sees him anymore...
  • Act Your Age, another great episode.

    9.0
    Act Your age was another great episode of House. In this episode, 2 Children's Hormones are increasing rapidly. Way too fast for their age. It was obviously very hard for the team to find out what it was, but it was a very understandable diagnosis when you saw how it was played out.

    House wasent such a hard ass in this episode. It was ok, but it wasent the normal House that we are used to seeing on TV.

    In conclusion, Act your age featured some of the most out of whack storylines i have ever seen on the house show.
  • When House is playing relationship counsellor…

    9.0
    It’s probably not the best episode I’ve seen, but it’s definitely the funniest since…I don’t know when !
    First, the medical plot may be not as exciting as an epidemic at 20000 meter above the ground, or a baby dying, dragging his mother with him. But interesting, anyway : the things the hormones can to you. Brr ! Frightening. At least, it’s a believable mystery from the beginning til the end. We can say there’s a little lack of suspense, and the way House finds out is a little bit too easy. The personnal plot is far more exciting and very funny. Actually, there are two personnal plots, and one of them is hilarious. I mean it. The first one between Cameron and Chase may lead to something : after the end of the previous episode, the relationship between them seemed over. But, maybe not (lot of maybe, in this ep.), seeing their interaction. At least, they could make it up. Still, Cameron seems to prove House right (and Foreman, in the same time!) when he said she couldn’t deal with a normal relationship. Apparently, or that’s what I felt, she began involved, so she ran away. Despite her denial. Chase seems to get this, so he won’t let her get rid of him so easily. Wait and see.
    As for the Wilson / Cuddy / House trio, I can’t see what the writers want us to believe. The idea of a relation between Wilson and Cuddy is appealing, more than one between House and Cuddy, from my point of view. It's very clear now that House and Cuddy have a past in common. And because of that, I don’t see them together. I'dlike to think about their relationship, as a friendship, like Grissom and Cath, for example. But at the end of the episode, Wilson says clearly that he’s not interested. Is he lying? Or in denial, like Cameron? Maybe, the writers find funny to spread confusion, and it’s fine so far. But, I’m not sure it will work for long, and they really have to make up their mind, because it’s very confusing for the storyline, and threatening to become annoying and frustrating.
    Of course, the flower thing and above all, Wilson’s panic are a delight. House really is a manipulating b…., as Foreman said more than once. And not only Foreman.
    But, for me, the best is, without doubt, when Wilson comes to House’s office and pretends not to know that House sent the flowers. Particularly, when he leaves, comes back, and yells at House. He’s a lot of thing but stupid, or naïve. Especially when it comes from House.
    So, I don’t know where all this is going, or even if it’s going somewhere, but eventually a good episode, very funny.
  • yay! House asked Cuddy out, finally!

    8.4
    No body on TV ever acts their age, House is no exception. 'Dudes only go to plays with women the hope to see naked...' Who does Wilson take? Cuddy. The patient (Lucy), still in kindergarden suffered from 'grandmother' like symptoms, which I can't remember. Her brother (jasper), a bully, ill-displined trouble-maker, gave cameron flowers as a 'friendly' gesture. Chase grew jealous. They found a t-shirt covered in blood, Jasper bit Chase out of jealousy- TNA wrestling drew House to a conclusion. Hormones. How? Why? You've got to watch it.
    Back to the Cuddy-Wilson business. House sends flowers, to Wilson, odd, but he did, well not directly; under Cuddy's name. Despite it being a bit of fun, was there meaning to all this? 'Do you (wilson) want to kiss Cuddy?' Perhaps he wants kiss her himself, perhaps he really is a pal, perhaps he doesn't want Wilson to get hurt. Why would he ask Cuddy to a play? Would he if Wilson said yes?
    Like I said, House not always just an ignorant ass, there's meaning, occasionally.
  • Awesome House/Wilson Friendship episode.

    9.4
    Overall I thought that the episode was good. The whole Cameron/Chase arc is irritating. I don't know why they're writing it. Maybe they're just writing it because Jennifer Morrison and Jesse Spencer are engaged for real (stupid reason) or they're just writing it so Cameron will stop swooning over House (better reason) but no matter why I think that it's a dumb plot line. The result of which a really great character, namely Foreman, is being ignored. However the interplay between House, Wilson and Cuddy was well done. I love the jealosy that appears in House over Cuddy. But even more so I love the interplay between House and Wilson. A lot of people ask why Wilson would be friends with House and this episode shows, without a doubt, that they are good friends. The relaxed and joking relationship is something that both characters need.
  • Didn´t seem House at all.

    7.5
    From the beginning this episode was different, one kid present symptoms but the other get sick, it look promesing, but the personal drama that i thought it had came to a end last chapter was back and it took all the emotion out of the episode. Cameron/Chese dama come back to bit us in the but and House just desapear, only emotionan moment in the whole episode las 5 seconds House/Cudy action, House want to se Cudy naked !!
  • All the parts we associate House with were there, but on a way too low level.

    6.1
    I'll have to agree big time with olgkap (http://www.tv.com/house/act-your-age/episode/1017068/reviews.html?review_id=376991). It seems very much that the intensity that used to run this season's episodes has been missed out here. While the regular storyline (mystery patient, couple of sidekicks, couple of personal protagonist stories) has been there, it, well it's simply only been there. It hasn't been intensified, there never was a real suspension. And I might add, while I first liked the idea of Cameron and Chase having a sexual relationship, I now think the writer(s) should concentrate more on traditional "medical drama House style", not the soap opera style. Almost a third of this episode has been filled with that sub-plot, and it's honestly been getting on my nerves.
    As olgkap already wrote, it really seemed like the writers of the don't talk, don't connect to each other, respectively. But while I didn't really like this episode, I don't think at all this means the season is ruined... the exception proves the rule.
  • A great installment! I loved it!

    8.9
    This episode was brilliant! I loved it!

    PROS:
    1) The plotline was very interesting and thought provoking. A six year old is having her hormones kicking in way too early, she's having her period at six! And what they thought was just "an innocent crush" by this girls 8-year old brother, was actually more because he has the same thing as his sister: his hormones is kicking in early too, like biting Chase because he was talking to Cameron. Very good idea!
    2) I loved Hugh Laurie in this episode! He was fabulous! I loved how his face looked and how he sounded when he would say "really?" in this episode, like the parts that went like "Yes, i slept with her." "REALLY!?" "No."
    3) The whole part with House trying to freak out Wilson by sending him flowers was too much! I loved it!
    4) The thing with Chase/Cameron was sweet in this episode. Normally i think it's ridiculous about how much the show is focusing on 'whos sleeping with who' but the thing between Chase/Cameron was bitter sweet in this episode. For example, earlier on, the 8-year old stole flowers for Cameron, and at the end of the episode, Chase got flowers for Cameron, and a note on them said "Not Stolen," I thought that was sweet.

    CONS:
    1) I liked the medical delemia, but i didn't really like the reason why they were sick like that. It seemeed kind of like a cheap way to make them sick. I like season three, but they seem to do that with a lot of episodes.
  • Not my favourite episode of House by far

    7.7
    Don't get me wrong, it's still House but it was not a good episode.

    The story was messy and the story seemed to neglect House far too much. The character development between Chase and Cameron is silly and pointless and the only real development is a tiny bit right at the end.

    It's great to see the rest of the team more but House needs to be involved a great deal more. My biggest gripe is that the story wasn't well thought out and put together like usual episodes of House.

    The medicine in this episode is far too far fetched and in some places wrong. The final diagnosis does not match some of the symptoms. I know it's hard to come up with interesting yet rare cases but the medicine has to have some continuity.

    Still, it's a good episode compared with other dramas on TV but by no means a good episode of House
  • Nicely done.

    9.3
    Another great episode. It was a fun episode to watch right from the very start with the kids running around in the school/nursery. One thing I like from this episode is how the side story of Jasper having a crush on Cameron and making Chase somehow jealous suddenly become the very story which reveals the dad's secret. It was cleverly written, mixing both the medical case and the relationship between Chase and Cameron, which was explicitly shown at some intervals throughout the show.

    House was his usual witty self setting up Wilson and Cuddy. You just gotta love him. All the other characters had an interesting role in this one too, including Foreman who somehow got stuck trying to not notice Chase and Cameron's misunderstangings.

    Overall, well written, and very fun to watch. :D
  • funny

    10
    i find that it very funny when the 8 year old grabs the butt and i like how the 6 year old acted when she acted as though she was haveing the sezier and how it looked really of the good and the thing wo oo oo oO OOOOO he he i'm just trying to make the one of the hundreds of the words because i need one of the hundreds of word i hate that rule kinda thing he he he he he he he he :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)
  • I would classify unitinally funny but they don't ave that for episdoes.

    9.6
    It was funny with houses facial expressions or reaction when he found out lisa was the one who went to the play with James. That and the 8 year old kid who had a crush on allison (camerion) and certain thigns that happened to that was funny. It was also intresting to find out what the little girl had and her brother. It turned out it was from thier Dad using a certain thing *cough* *ahem* I won't say what it was and I rather not say it. Oh and it was I guess a little sad. Cool episode but wasn't one of the best.
  • Dr. House asks Cuddy to a play, but earlier in the episode he says the only reason to take a woman to a play is because he wants to see her naked. So are we to assume that he is fianlly going to knock boots with Lisa?

    9.5
    I busted this episode when the little brother gave Cameron the roses. That showed that he too was ailing the effects of higher hormone levels. On another note, House praised each of the Doctors that went home while the others worked. Cameron and Chase must be having fun with their sub-story, being that they are dating in real life as well. I think it's time for a steamy sex scene with the two. As well as for House and Cuddy. For an older Jewish woman, she has got in going on...I'd hit it!

    Thanks for reading!
  • I wasn't sure how to score the ep.,untill I saw one of the review...

    8.0
    That person wrote that “Act your age” was the first whole ep. of House he/she had ever seen and he/she liked it. Maybe, if it was my “first” House, I would like it too(especially if seen after some really boring…don’t want to be rude…stuff on our TV or some “medical soap” as well),but I’m a hard core House addict, I’ve seen it all and if compare it to the first 2 seasons the ep. is weak…tolerable, but still weak.
    My main concern is a plotline. It seems like the person who was writing today’s ep. had nothing to do with that was written last week, so he/she scratched his/her head a little, said something like” All they’ve done to the characters is so wrong. OK, let’s see what we could do about it …” and start writing. I know It doesn’t work this way(at least it shouldn’t), but look what they’ve done to Cameron. Some people find that it's “the development of the character”, I say it’s the character written by several people with a very different view on how the show should progress. ”But who knows, maybe I’m too stoned to tell”.
    The medical case of the ep. is very questionable. It's happened before, but when we have all the “drama”, House was so intense, it didn’t matter. Now it lost the “dra” part ,it’s a good comedy show about a bunch of middle-aged doctors (and their younger colleges) who try to sort out their lives (mostly personal) on the hospital grounds. IMO “Scrubs” is (was?) doing the job better.
    I enjoyed the actors, they were always great no matter what they have to play, although it must be hard to keep it seriously ,in this ep we’ve seen HL almost cracking up in I-just-go-and-kiss-her scene. And ,does House’s leg is growing the muscle back? He didn’t seem to have any problem with catching a ball using his right leg in the kindergarten and pull it up all the way from the floor to the table easily. Let’s grow a muscle and let him run again. After all women deserve to have their own “Baywatch” ,you know…
  • Well worth watching just to see House's facial expressions when he learns that Wilson took Cuddy to the theater (and with tickets given to him by House no less) and then talks to him about it on several occasions. Revealing, hilarious, and very promising!

    9.8
    Overall I find that Cameron seems to be back to being more herself. Nothing against her enjoying a "sex only" relationship with Chase but her aggressive/assertive behavior in this seemed a bit off to me.

    The patient puzzle was interesting as usual and well done with many red herrings.

    However, as I said in the summary, the highlight of this episode was House shock when he believed Wilson was going for Cuddy. Then his evil genius idea of scaring Wilson off for good and the whole back and forth between them. Really? Yes, no kidding:-)

    And of course the ending, how promising was that?
    If you haven't already, go watch! Seriously.
  • House must diagnose a little girl who had heart problems and a stroke and some other things wrong. Wilson has a date with Cuddy.

    9.7
    This one was really funny. House was clever and witty and cutting in his usual way. The plot was well-worked and intriguing. Typically, the mystery didn't get solved until the end, although, not quite as typically, I guessed the problem closer to the beginning than usual. The subplot with Wilson, House, and Cuddy was also well-written and funny. The fact that House would send flowers to Wilson and sign them from Cuddy is very typically House, and had me laughing my head off. Also, the repeated trickery on the part of Wilson, making House believe he wanted to sleep with Cuddy. Their neurotic friendship generally makes the episodes quite funny, but it's good that it says a B plot rather than the main one. So, this episode was typically good (not exceptionally bad or good).
  • Not my favorite House. I just wasn't as intrigued by the two little hormoned kids and their father. Although the little boy was funny with Cameron and Chase. House was also his classic self. "Somebody better be dying"

    8.4
    A little too dry for a normal episode of House. I thought this one was just too far-fetched. I mean, what are the odds that a man's "viagra" cream turns his kids into hormonal maniacs. I'm sure it's scientifically possible, but the storyline wasn't all that exciting. They seemed to be doing a lot more with Cuddy/Wilson/House, and took a lot of focus from the medical mystery. Cameron and Chase are funny together, and also the little boy was funny at first, but got incredibly annoying. This was an all-around average episode of House. Hopefully next week's will be much better.
  • Such a wonderful episode. It was funny at times and dramatic at times.

    9.9
    The case was fascinating, a six-year-old girl menstruating isn't something you see every day. The case also made you feel compassion, and I think we can thank the actor for that. She was adorable and a believable actor (come on, who wouldn't feel sorry for a sick little girl). The episode once again dealt with a lot of relationship stuff. House agonizing over Wilson and Cuddy, Chase and Cameron working out their dispute (and Foreman being a little left out again). One can wonder if House did what he did because of jealousy about Cuddy or jealousy about Cuddy AND Wilson. Maybe he has romantic feelings toward Cuddy, maybe he doesn't want to be left out of the House/Cuddy/Wilson threesome (that's what could happen if Wilson and Cuddy started dating). Anyway it showed a new, interesting side of House because it actually seemed to affect him. This could lead just about anywhere right now. And then there was the Chase/Cameron thing, which I think came to an ending with this episode. I was glad to see a little bit of the 'old' Cameron in her this time. Although she justified her being mad in a a somewhat silly way: because Chase had broken the rules she was allowed to be angry. I'm thinking that Chase is allowed to be angry with her for dumping him so coldly after he told her about his feelings. And the plan to make Chase jealous using an eight-year-old boy kind of backfired, and I have to say she deserved it (although the testosterone driven little boy sure was creepy in my opinion). But Chase and Cameron sorted things out and now they get along again, and I'm really hoping to see the nice and caring (but not too much) Cam again. Maybe she learned something from this experience, I certainly hope so. Overall this episode was highly entertaining and... I absolutely loved it. And remember: never is just reven spelled backwards.
  • It’s all about flowers! Flowers? Yes! A boy hands (stolen) flowers to Cameron, House sends Wilson flowers and signs the card as “Lisa” and Chase leaves (not stolen) flowers for Cameron on her locker. And I? I sit like in a flower basket and am happy.

    It’s all about flowers! Flowers? Yes! A little boy hands (stolen) flowers to Cameron, House sends Wilson flowers and signs the card as “Lisa” and Chase leaves (not stolen) flowers for Cameron on her locker. And I? I sit like in a flower basket and am happy. I hardly give 10 points, but this episode was the show I felt in love with. I have finally my old House back, witty, manipulating, lazy and childish. The medical case was very interesting, also because both kids have been “infected” and the boy showed some real macho behaviour, literally biting out his rival.

    For the first time in one and a half years I really liked Cameron again. One could tell that she felt sorry for her coolness and wasn’t sure herself what she was feeling or wanting, she went on with that: “it has been only a fun thing” because it’s in her pattern of behaviour to stick with one decision, but she might learn that the world isn’t that fix and things can change. She might grow up now and I like it. Chase seems to take his time because he thinks it’s worth it. No pressure.

    House didn’t even think that Wilson would invite Cuddy to the play and so wouldn’t we actually. The #1 panty peeler of the hospital, not inviting a patient or nurse but Cuddy? House didn’t see that coming when he gave the tickets away. So he tried to “fix” it with flowers, but then he wasn’t sure if Wilson meant it “seriously” when he said he slept or wanted to sleep with Cuddy. House tried to joke about it, but was quite unsure what is real and what is show, so at the end he needs to know and: invites Cuddy to a play!!! – wasn’t it that a dude invites women only to a play if they want to see them naked? Whooaaa! 1+1 is not 25!
    I liked the subtle lines towards the end about love between October and May. All in all I loved the episode. There was all I want from the show. A good medical case, one wouldn’t figure out at the beginning, some touching moments and a lot of good laugh. I want more like this !!!!!
