What he said was right, but he's saying for all the wrong reasons. That's the problem I have. He didn't grow a backbone, he's just wallowing in self-pity.

True...but he stood up to House...and that's the important thing.

I agree, but he's being way too harsh. Wilson (and Cuddy) are the only ones that know how vulnerable and emotionally fragile House really is. Yes, House is an arrogant, narcissistic, self-loathing, selfish bastard, but he's that way for a reason. We know part of that is from the abuse he suffered in his childhood, part is from his leg, and part we've never found out about yet, I'm guessing. House can't be treated like other people because he's not like other people. Without Wilson and/or Cuddy, he won't be able to function. Bottom line, Wilson only did what he did because of his own grief. If nothing had ever happened to Cutthroat Bitch, he never would have said what he said to House or decided to do what he says he's going to. It's an emotional reaction, not a rational decision.

all the interaction with House, Wilson and Cuddy = A+

everything else = D-

The case this week almost seemed like an after thought, 13, Tuab and Kumar are completely useless and Foreman, Cameron and Chase are pretty much ignored.

So I love this show.. but GOD its the same shit every episode. Patient has multiple symptoms, doctors suggest it could be 5 million different things, treat for all of them, nothing seems to work, oh but it has to be MS or cancer!! No.. then House comes in and figures out its something simple like a bug bite or some shit I think they really need to change it up. It's very predictable.

Aside from that, his interaction with everyone makes the show worth watching. Even though I guess I missed the last season ending because I had no idea CB died

I've been saying this for the last two seasons...

All I watch it for now is him and how he interacts with the other characters...

Not enough HOUSE in this episode, but the scenes he WAS in were very good!

^Agreed. The snark was amazing.

House: "So, we're treating professional sports injuries now?
Obese ER Patient: "Oh no, I'm not-"
House: "Familiar with the concept of sarcasm? Don't sweat it. It's new."

I thought it was pretty good, but you know what? I've been trying my damnedest to figure out why it hasn't been as good the last couple seasons and I think I've got it. Somewhere along the way the cases/patients stopped mattering. Lately every case is all about how it effects one of the new ducks it seems...last night's was no exception, all about 13's Huntington's. The older eps managed, in an hour, to give you enough about the patient so you could actually care whether House solved the case or not; that's rare lately. I think that's why I liked "Frozen" from last season, and the ep with the NASA girl (was that the 2nd episode?). Anyone else get this? Or am I crazy?

You missed the 2-part Season 4 ender?
But I agree about the formula of the show

I'm glad someone remembered that scene


Maybe they need multiple patients per episode. Some that may be tricky & diagnosed, others, as the usual amount of symptoms/diagnoses, and maybe a couple that cross for unrelated reasons Or just more Cameron, Chase, Foreman,... Something has to happen to 13 along the line, no? Or more personal insight/revelations about House

I see what you're saying. It seems like the writers are trying to give depth to the new supporting cast too quickly. Chase, Cameron and Foreman were allowed to grow as characters over three seasons. Their lives and personalities were always secondary to the cases - that whole process has now been reversed, and I don't care for that aspect of it at all. It would be a different matter entirely if the new characters were actually INTERESTING. 13 needs to die already. I cannot stand her. Taub's okay and Kumar (I can't think of him as anyone else) is tolerable, but 13...christ, she's painful.

As for the latest episode: WTF, Wilson?
