Classic!

I really enjoyed this episode a lot. The show is only getting better in my opinion. Probably my favorite show on television right now (CSI being close second).

Well, turns out I bought my motorcycle from a neighbor of yours! I got it from a guy named Michael Jackson (not kidding here) in South Gate.

Anyway, enough about us, we should get back on topic and talk more about House.

I especially like the fact that the show is retaining its backbone with the perplexing patient case/s intermixed with clinic visits but adds more spice to the mix with things like his parent's visit in the last episode.

It also seems like (at least to me) that the writer/s are broadening the characters ......a little....of his colleagues so that they are simply not foils from one episode to the next.

Right, and they are being developed somewhat gradually, which keeps it more interesting as we want to learn more about them.

I just hope they don't reveal too much about House and why he is the way he is...part of the fun is wondering what makes this guy tick.

I agree. We will probably find out eventually though.

I just started watching the show this season. It reallly looked like a stupid show so I never gave it a chance.

All I have to say is that i'm eating crow now, and wished I watched when it first started.

They have this service...where you don't have to buy the discs...but you can watch them and give them back when you're done, for a nominal fee! Maybe somebody has a link?

I actually preferred season one (especially the episode "Three Stories"), it's worth a look.

I assume you are talking about NetFlix scottro, there are a few places doing the same thing now from what I hear, like Wal Mart and I think even Blockbuster.

Yeah 1st season was top notch. Not really a bad episode in the bunch and that Three Stories episode is one of the best of any show and did actually win for best writing in a TV show.

Maybe this is the thread to ask in:

I watch the show every Tuesday night. Tonight, because of the Hawkeyes basketball game...it was delayed until after 10pm. House AND Bones were not shown in HD! Just like last night with Prison Break....usually in HD but not when delayed. Why would this be? Does it sound like a local issue?

Well, get out of this thread until it airs then. You know people who have seen it are going to talk about it.

My favorite thing - "This is just diagnostic, it only last about 5 or 6 minutes."

Yes, your local station does not have a way to delay the HD feed.

1. "Bones" was in HDTV with DD5.1 on FOX Detroit until about 8:45 EST ... they then switched to SDTV to display Tornado Watch Graphics. "Bones" was in HDTV for the entire show on Global HD (Bell ExpressVu simsubbed this program from FOX Boston).

2. "House" I believe was in SDTV on FOX Detroit for the entire show even when they were not showing the Tornado Watch Graphic. However, it was in HDTV with DD5.1 on CTV HD (again a simsub by Global HD).

I guess these local stations do not yet have the graphical hardware that would enable them to superimpose graphics on HDTV ... which kinda sucks!

FOX BOSTON via Bell ExpressVu and FOX DETROIT via Star Choice.

Bell ExpressVU simsubs all US programming that is simultaneously shown on a Canadian Station ... however there seems to be no drop in quality for the HD picture or DD5.1 sound. So far there has been no simsubbing by Star Choice.

Bob
If it is not HDTV it is not worth watching!

Great episode, but man is House getting a little evil! As predicted I'm really tired of Sela Ward. Make it stop. As for Cameron, I wanted her to be the leak. Would have been interesting to see what happened then.

Someday maybe I'll actually WATCH my projector...

Anybody notice that after he told Jeff that he had healed them he starts talking about how he should be all worshipful and whatever. Notice that after Jeff collapses House says casually "This is why I created nurses." I was like lol.

OTA Only since 2/05!

I really enjoyed House's interactions with Stacy's husband. I was glad to see Sela Ward again as well.

Wow! Tonight's episode was really good. How hot did Cameron look tonight?

Also, did anyone else notice the address of House's place?

Still 45 minutes before I get to see it here on the west coast. Glad to hear you liked the episode though. And Cameron seems to be getting hotter by the episode.

Through the miracle of HD, I was able to see that the green calendar thingy in the ex-wife Stacy's house has a date of 1975 on it. Is that supposed to mean something?
