To be quite honest, this season of house has not been spectacular to say the least. Without Chase, Taub, or 13 and the rather flat characters of Park and Adams trying (with little effect) to fill their much missed void. The case itself is uninteresting as this week sees another rich guy who can help House desperately get his department in order financially and kick orthopedics out of his outer office. Park has her disciplinaryhearingfor punching her supervisor and he apparently has taken sexual harassment classes and House and her bet that she will or won't get fired. She tries to get Wilson to help her but some part of the plot swerves and has her look sympathetic and she doesn't get fired. The patient is planning on moving to China and House blackmails him at first into paying him what he wants and when the patient's company stock drops low House invests a lot of money into and when he gets better from some muddled, saw it coming a mile away cure, the stock bounces back and House gets enough money to kick orthopedics out and get Taub and Chase back. Hopefully they can put the spring back into House's step because this season is really lagging thus far and I'm not sure if I can keep watching with this many mediocre episodes in a row.
