Re: House 5x02: "Not Cancer" - Discussion and Spoilers

Gave the ep a 'good'...just shy of excellent, save for the poop joke.

Keeping him on retainer I wonder if he'll be a semi-reg.

Gave it a good rating. The case was interesting, and the investigator was funny. I agree, he's Wilson 2.0. I think Wilson will be back, though.

It was actually curious to see House so utterly vulnerable when he went to Wilson's apartment. He seemed genuinely upset that Wilson would spend time with the others and not him.

Re: House 5x02: "Not Cancer" - Discussion and Spoilers

Very good episode, I'll give it an excellent.

Interesting medical mystery, cute POTW, I loved the bit with House "auditioning" his new BFF at the begining (we need to see more of that! ) and the interaction with House and the PI was pretty good too.

Good episode, classic House stuff in it.

Not enough 13 and Cuddy, though.

Good ep. I loved the audition of the new friend...handed teh shippers a big ol plot play [LOL]

Interesting diagnostic works. Wish I had a transcript of his explaination to Cuddy so I could follow it a bit better.

Re: House 5x02: "Not Cancer" - Discussion and Spoilers

This was definitely one of the grossest episodes to date. Ewwwww...

Great medical mystery, but I'm not terrible keen on House's new friend. The sooner the status quo is reset with Wilson, the better.

Same here, though maybe a little less so on the first point. He's interesting enough, and I'll look forward to seeing how they use him in the future. But please bring back Wilson before Christmas.

Not a bad episode, but not a great one either. I haven't voted yet, I'm torn between Good and Average on this poll. In the Most Subtle Overlooked Joke department my favourite line was Cuddy's: "Why does it cost $2,300 to fix a coffee machine?"

And if I may be allowed a small moment of drooling masculinity... I wish the blonde tennis player had been the POTW. She was hot.

I'm glad someone else said that too, because I was wondering if I had just missed a beat or something. There seemed to a higher "gross out" factor than I recall form most of the previous season.

The PI-Friend seems like a capable replacement if it's not for too long. We get a bit of the type of exchange there would have been with Wilson, while we're waiting for the writers to bring back Wilson regularly.

Just please ... may they not do so in some cliche fashion, though. There has to be some long-running and lingering effect.

One question ...... this episode seemed to have less of the usual House ascerbic wit than usual. Maybe it was just me, but I didn't find as many of the sharoly launched barbs I've come to love.

Perhaps that was a deliberate choice on the writers' part?


On a slightly related note, I had a dream last night where Hugh Laurie played another irascible character with a strong wit, but this time as a pharmacist at a grocery store. I think William Daniels was also featured. The show had been made prior to House (in my dream) but then suddenly I was part of the show, or rather the nature of the show was real and I was part of it (like so many of my Lost related dreams). Very strange and amusing.

Re: House 5x02: "Not Cancer" - Discussion and Spoilers

Not sure if its been mentioned yet (too man posts to read ) but that PI guy is the David Shore choice for the House (P.I) Spinoff...

Good episode and I loved the P.I dude and think he would make a good choice for a spinoff show though does anyone know if its planned for 2009 fall or 2010 midseason ? The replacement Wilson had it moments but we do need Wilson back though I am losing any sympthay for Wilson.
