  • The first good episode this season.


    Things actually returned to a level of normal with this episode. The females were actually tolerable. Taub and Chase made graceful returns and were quickly added back to the team. Even Foreman and Wilson made likeable appearances for the first time.

    Funny: House vs. Taub and his DNA testing babies. Chase talking to Adams and immediately jumping on relationship topics. Taub ends up shredding the DNA results after being incredibly reluctant to take the test... but I bet that will come back to haunt him soon.

    The medical case was a complete baffle-fest. It was hard to follow as it provided several twists and turns. At one point, the man's skin sheds like a snake, in a case so odd that I've never heard of anything like that other than a burn victim. Another interesting finding was the impulse control vs. brain area relationship - as the brain area increased in volume, the patient's impulse control delusions increased. Cool, just like the altruism case a couple of weeks ago. Overall, the performances by the patient and his wife were well played.

    Weak ending though. They should have just had a new room... we know Wilson's office is NOT that close by. Come on.
