That is true! However, most of them probably aren't in the hospital with extremely competent doctors running hundreds of tests on them and giving them a treatment that will make it impossible for them to fight off said infection. I probably should've said that in the first place so as not to be so confusing!

I liked that... For me there has to be mistakes made and dark episodes where people die, that’s what makes the show interesting.

There was a period during season 2 where I was seriously considering tuning out because pretty much every episode followed the same basic premise:

-patient presents with strange symptoms
-House and team decide on treatment
-patient gets worse
-House and team decide on another treatment
-patient gets a little better then gets much worse
-House has a brilliant insight (usually at the last second based upon some completely obscure occurrence) and saves the patient's life

Every episode, rinse and repeat and that's fine once and a while. I'm glad I stuck around for the third season though; it went different places with Tritter and the fact that not all his patients were saved and I like that...

Even before it was ever pointed out by anyone on the show, I've always said that Foreman is basically House with slightly less bitterness. Give him a life-changing injury and 15 years and see where he is then.
That's what I mean! If that's all that was wrong I was really pissed off.

But yes, elevated's post above me is correct, that is the dead-set sunk-in formula.

I just saw a promo for the new season with possibly the greatest Houseism ever.

House walks up behind Cuddy-
Cuddy: "Where did you come from?"
House: "Apes!...If you believe the Democrats"

Can't say I get it I'm afraid.

It'd be sweet if he went on Rove.

Hey! Just discovered! Foreman was showing his moments of 'prickness' in Season 1 as well! Whaddya know.

And did anyone explain to me why Chase hated him towards the end of S3?

The joke is probably better understood by Americans. The Democrats are (in general) the more liberal of our 2 major political parties, ergo, individual politicians and people who support the Democratic party (I'm one of them, but I'm a bit more conservative in this area, in terms of I can accept God working through science to create everything..) are more likely to align with a more scientific viewpoint on creation. The Christian Right who align with the more conservative Republicans try to say "ZOMG!!!11111 The Democratz believe we all came from MONKIEZZZZZ! HEATHENSZZZZZ!!!1111" which in most cases isn't true. It was more of a poking fun at statements like those.

As for Foreman showing his moments of Housiness in Season 1, you're right! He's been like House from day 1, probably before he even met House. There's an episode in Season 1 (I'm not sure which one, someone else might know) where House, Chase, and Cameron had all pointed out how similar Foreman and House were. Foreman kept getting angry and denying it. At the end of the episode, Foreman and House are in the elevator together and Foreman looks down and sees he and House are wearing the same shoes. He gets sort of a despairing look on his face, and House just smiles. It's great! I think the main reason Chase was so pissed at Foreman at the end of last season was because of that very reason. Foreman kept saying "I don't want to turn out like House", yet he already was like him. Chase really admires House and thinks of him like a father figure, though he'd never admit it. He was probably thinking something Cuddy said out loud to Foreman when he told her why he was leaving. "There are worse things you could turn into." That was just a wild guess on my part, btw.

Ah thanks muchly! And that was the episode I just finished watching. It was pretty good actually. However I liked how House was comparing himself to that other doctor (this is the episode with the jazzy guy in a wheelchair) and said to Foreman he was proud of him (not in those words) in that he took a risk. He was wrong but it was good, I dunno, initiative I spose.

^ That was a good one...I think Brandy was in that? But yeah, Foreman was considering going to work with that other doc.

Foreman really is kind of like House...maybe that's why he's my favorite duckling.

I watched "Humpty Dumpty" again last night on my DVD. It's the one where Cuddy's handyman falls off her roof. I forgot how good that one was. I love how everyone is subtly trying to get House and Cuddy to admit they've slept together throughout that episode, and neither of them will admit or deny.
