So you guys DO agree with me.

Can someone tell me how last night's episode ended? I got up to the part when we realize the patient is actually House after telling the three stories (about 45 minutes in). Thanks for your help. I hope this episode is repeated soon.

House wanted to be put in a temporary coma to avoid the pain. When this happened, Sela Ward told Cuddy to remove the dead muscle tissue, which severely compromised the use of his leg. Also, at the end of the lecture House told Cuddy that the sick doctor he was subbing for was suffering from lead poisoning caused by drinking from his coffee mug.

Thanks for the update. I believe House also drank from that mug during his lecture?!

He drank from it briefly, I think, and then gave it a dirty look.

He took a drink from the cup and then spit the water back into the cup.

This was a very good episode, it shows at least some writers are thinking out of the box. The play on the three students as proxies for his actual staff was interesting. Last week's Without A Trace was also a different and refreshing change from the usual "find the missing person" script.

Yea, it was quite an interesting episode. I was left wondering if maybe in a future episode they would come up with the evidence to nail the record keeper guy, but probably not. Kind of unusual for the bad guy to get away with it in these shows.

I absolutely loved House last night. When the students asked about who would catch the snake and House said you have people for that, and then it cut to those two... freaking classic. I started wondering if one of the people was him, but I was wrong about who it was. Really explains why Cuddy cuts him the slack she does though.

Only thing that bothered me is the medical proxy use. His doctor KNEW what he wanted. No ifs, ands, or buts. She should not, legally, have operated. Minor annoyance, and one that I'm sure I will forget about.

You're right, but Cuddy did exactly what House would have done (as a doctor). She broke the rules. I liked the irony.
post #189 of 5037
Was House an employee of the hospital at the time of his illness or did he join the staff later?
post #190 of 5037
Despite the outcome, apparently House did not pursue major legal action.

The question that will always be asked is whether or not House's gamble or Cuddy's breaking the rules was the right choice.

Notice how House's audience in the lecture room was growing? House left little doubt that he was the right person to keep after Vogler's power play.

I was bothered a lot more by the episode a couple of weeks ago with the pregnant 12 year old. House said that according to New Jersey law that it had to be aborted and he could not inform the parents without her permission. I thought you couldn't give a minor aspirin without the parents consent?
post #192 of 5037
That had to be the most creative presentation of a backstory I have ever seen on TV. Also, the Carmen Electra stuff was priceless.
post #193 of 5037
Uh oh, two threads on the same show. Maybe a mod can merge them.
post #194 of 5037
heh, I couldn't even find the original, but I knew it existed.

They didn't say.

Actually I believe House didn't say it had to be aborted, that was up to her. He said it was New Jersey law that he couldn't inform her parents that she was pregnant.

I'm still talking to co-workers about last night's episode. Kudos to the writers!

Yep, I noticed that also. It looked like more and more doctors from the hospital were sitting in on the lecture.

They didn't actually say, but it was somewhat implied when he told the nurse he was going to have a cardiac arrest and she did what he asked her to do. She probably wouldn't have done that without knowing him.

If Fox shows us more episodes like last night's, I'll keep watching...

I've seen about 10 of these now, and they were all top notch.

I watched House early and enjoyed it. Then I found Veronica Mars and since Kristen Bell >> Hugh Laurie, I stopped watching House. Fortunately summer reruns will let me catch up, but I really need Fox to bump House up an hour or for WB to move Veronica to another night. Why can't these network execs get their programming schedules to fit my TV watching schedule?

Last night's was quite good, especially you never had House's backstory.

that's where a HD TiVo with dual tuners comes in very handy.

Veronica is on UPN, but regardless, I agree with you. I record VM and House, but watch House live. UPN should move VM to Wednesdays after Top Model, it's a better fit for it.

... without her (the 12yr old's) permission.

agreed, the 4-5 other episodes I have seen were all very good...this is a good show.

Yesterday (5/17/05), there was an interview with the producer and the medical advisor of "House", on NPR's "Fresh Air" program. They also contribute to the writing of this show. I wish I could have called in and asked them who wrote the line that attributed the cause of toxoplasmosis to a "fungus". You can read an article about "House" and this interview on NPR's website and listen to the archived interview, under "Fresh Air", on the programming section. http://www.npr.org

any hosp. staff will find out very quickly when they have a doctor on their hand. doctors make the worst patients. house must be a nightmare.

Histoplasmosis (not Toxoplasmosis) *is* caused by a fungus endemic to the midwestern and southeastern U.S. It commonly grows in bird droppings. Blastomycosis is caused by a fungus found in the southwestern U.S. which can cause similar symptoms. It's possible this was the mistake that was made, although I didn't see the episode you are referring to.

Mods can we merge this with the other house thread?
post #209 of 5037
Topics merged.
post #210 of 5037
I have watched this show from the beginning and must admit that I didn't like Dr. House much at first. He was just too over the top. Once they developed the character a little I started to appreciate his sense of humor and now think he's really funny.

This last show was very good and shows that there are still some creative people in the TV business. I hope it sticks around for a few seasons.
