I thought this episode of House brilliant, yet not perfect, simply because Sebastian Charles was so irritating as the patient. His message was inspiring, yet he was inexplicably annoying. No doubt he was meant to be, but I found this a little bit wearing at times.
Nevertheless, the storyline was interesting. Cameron's interest in Charles and House comes head to head here, and I think Chase summed it up perfectly when he says "He's not House- theres nothing there". I thought House's diagnostic processes were very funny in this episode, especially when he burst into the room during the press conference.
The clinic scenes were also very funny, and how the obnoxious clinic patient who was shirty with Foreman was dealt with at the end was inspired and ingenious writing.
Overall, another solid episode of a very decent start to Season 2.
