  • House screws up...

    Don't get me wrong, I love House, couldn't have it any other way, but this episode did not show him in the most flattering light. I cringed at the scene where he rips the oxygen mask or whatever was keeping the senator dude breathing- that was torture, plain and simple, it was painful to watch. He got answers, but that was beyond unethical, it was horrific. All was forgiven, amazingly, so I guess I'll move past it eventually. But that speech as well- why did he have to be so idiotic and ruin everything? Sure, his pride was wounded, but surely something could have been salvaged from the fact that dumb patients would be paying exorbitant fees for essentially the same medication- sounds just like the unethical methods he enjoys, but coz it's Vogler, he balks...and honestly, what would it have cost him to shake Cameron's hand at the end, when she resigned? I was disappointed with that, the scene ended so dismally...
