Brief spoilers for last night's "House" coming up just as soon as I come up with a long list of Jewish sports stars to add to Taub's predictable Sandy Koufax reference...
Well, that was a pretty good one, wasn't it?
I don't mind the sledgehammer parallels between doctor and patient so much when the doctor is house, and when the patient is played by a good actor like Jay Karnes (Dutch from "The Shield"), or when the patient's story turns out to be so tragic even after he's cured. That guy's relationships with his wife and daughter will never be the same after this.
This was also the first big House/Wilson episode in quite a while, and one that, for once, was more about Wilson himself than about Wilson's friendship with House. (Though there was still some of that, of course, including House conducting the witch hunt with poor racquetball-impaired Taub.) I like that House made the attempt to shut out the team in order to be there for Wilson, even though he failed, and I like that Wilson seemed to let that go because House tried, and because House was there for him again the next day. A fine showcase for Hugh Laurie and Robert Sean Leonard.
All that, and we got a very low Foreteen quotient.
What did everybody else think?
