  • We Need The Eggs - Classic!

    Last reviewer needs to lessen the outside influence of tweets and reviews and push examples of how a series that we all loved for 8 years can still be interesting to watch, and still give it an abysmal score, if this is the worst House episode, than obviously a person has to choose arbitrary episodes to watch instead of being a constant objective viewer. Also, this is the SECOND TIME that Sara Hess has created a slightly misandrist episode (Man of the House) - also giving House some emotion to placate his logical mind, is called giving a character depth and multiple dimensions to open up opportunities for the future final episodes. All in all, it is extremely insulting for a real fan like me to listen to hateful drivel without any proof. Give objective examples of how this episode is a "dog script", (objective means not dogmatic opinions, but a fair and impartial view), and maybe then you will have a leg to stand on,

    sincerely, real House fan

    ------My Review of a great intelligent episode------

    AMAZING EPISODE! This episode had the hallmarks of the best qualities of every House episode - it was hilarious to say the least, it was touching and very intriguing (also great graphics for the hallucination). Peter Blake and Sara Hess have written countless episodes on House, and since their first season they have not failed. The medicine was current - Primary Amoebic Meningioencephalitis - although a variant of this infection was already used in season 2, it was still simple and creative and AN AWESOME DIAGNOSIS! The delivery of the diagnosis itself was genuine and easily understood and the idea of a sex doll was new and original. Also, by bringing up each character's self esteem and love life and seeing them all crash and burn (except Park), the writers were able to give each character a lot more depth than we have seen from them in a long time. It was one of those episodes where you can be watching it on your own, and still laugh out loud at the classic House antics, while still being given a chance to look into his softer side. Great episode and if I could give it an 11 I would in a second.
