House's old episodes are viewed by many as superior to its current offerings, but this was pretty much on par with the most recent season. Not a horrible episode, in fact I rather enjoyed it, but the medical mystery seemed to take a back step to House and Cameron's date, and when that happens on a medical drama it is never a good thing. The Grey's Anatomy episodes that accentuate romance over medicine are lackluster this way as well.
The scenes with House and Cameron were good though, as these are two of the better characters on the show. I really wish they explored their potential courtship further, but the writers had other plans with her getting together with Chase.
