  • Much better than last week's weird yet OK episode

    I was excited about this episode when I heard of it and Mos Def was the absolute right choice to play Lee. The whole plot and direction of this episode was superb and I relished every single part of it. While I was hoping to see House crash his motorcycle for some reason I got over it when I realised it wasnt that important to be shown on-screen. What was great was how the first half of the episode was filmed from the patient's perspective and we could hear his thoughts. House was typical as I knew he found the patient fascinating only because he could only communicate through blinking. I liked how House made Taub fight for his job and in the end take him back because he cared enough to lie about the origin of the diagnosis (Kutner). The ending where House says, "Suddenly, you're not so fascinating" was satisfying enough as the patient at the end of the day was cured.
