He will have a recurring role for some part of this season and then should FOX greenlight it, David Shore wants to create a spinoff of sorts with the P.I character who I thought was very good tonight. I already know the actor from a few episodes of Scrubs were he played a returning US Ranger who had been injured (good friends with Zach Braff in real life).

The show will most likely air in the fall of 2009 or midseason 2010.

Yeah, Michael Weston (the PI) was also in Zach Braff's movie Garden State. I like him - I could see a show being built around the character.

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

^^ thanks for mentioning the Scrubs assocation - I've been trying to remember where I knew that guy from since the first time he turned around as the very expensive coffee machine fixer

Voted Good. Bit below the massive standards last week set, but the House/Wilson scene was superbly done and PI man seems like a cool addition to the cast.

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

I'm the sole "Average" vote so far.

To me, the episode's pacing felt a little off. Also I wasn't completely sold on House's PI--not a bad character by any stretch, but he was a bit too nonchalant considering House's antics with the drug switch. The character felt a little out of place in the House universe, like someone out of Burn Notice or Psych instead.

I probably would too. I kind of liked his character and the argyle socks.

Funny ... he reminded me more of Wilson. Able to stand up to House, get him to think along necessary lines, possesses a good amount of wit... and still something pitiable.

He reminded me as an anti-House. Not good at lying, not as confident. About the only similarities I see between him and House are being good at his job and good at spouting off informational platitudes.

^ I agree with that to an extent. It was mostly as he was talking to the team when he was repairing the coffeemaker that I had that impression.

Well, I thought the very idea of the spin off was dumb in the first place (back when we first heard about it over the summer), but now I know it'll be dumb.
