Re: House: 5x04 "Birthmarks" - Discussion and Spoilers

I'm glad that they didn't drag this Wilson/House reconciliation out much longer than they did. I could have dealt with a few more episodes, but pretty soon it'd get to be too much and extremely annoying.

Was the show itself longer or were the commercial breaks longer? Granted, the end result is the same for the viewer.

Yeah, as I said these arcs/"shake ups" rarely last long. So-far the longest lasting "shake-up" is the new Doclings and I'm still not certain how that's going to play out (considering they're STILL not in the opening credits sequence!)

But, Season 1 had Vogler, Season 2 had Forman as Boss, Season 3 had the (Shi)Tritter arc, Season 4 seemed to be the new Doclings, and now in Season 4 we had Wilson and House's "break-up."

And it played out nicely with Wilson "breaking-up" more to protect himself from getting hurt again than anything to do with House and his personality or anything like that. Played out nicely and this episode was a great way to bring them back together, House's figuring it out, and pushing Wilson until he snapped and came to the realization House is his friend.

Nicely played.

And, I'm partly convinced House's eulogy was sincere. House has a way of taking his sincerity and playing it off, or putting a twist on it to suit his needs.

Part of the brilliance of the character of House is that you're never quite sure if you're seeing the "real him", or is it a game he's playing on you the viewer?

I keep forgeting this link.

I added it to the first post and I'm posting it here (for those who've read this far into the thread.)

Excellent episode. Long live House/Wilson!

I loved Cuddy drugging House. And Wilson getting arrested. Funny how friendships begin and begin again.

The case wasn't too bad, either, but how could someone go through 25 years of life and NOT know there were nails in her head?

Amen and amen. They're like Londo and G'Kar, but with labcoats.

And wasn't it cool how Wilson ended up throwing yet another bottle through yet another piece of glass, just like when House and he met way back when?

Were they supposed to be smaller, pin-like as opposed to nails?

there was one report of an old lady who went shopping and didn't even know she had scissors in her head.

The lead up to the diagnosis didn't make much sense to me.

House brings up the patients date of birth which was 1983 when china enforced the one child act which causes the parents to kill the baby/ give it up for adoption

then we cut to the xray of pins in the head

Good episode this week, but I'm looking forward to next week's episode, where we get to see the insanely hot 13 making out with other women!

Re: House: 5x04 "Birthmarks" - Discussion and Spoilers

This one gets an "Excellent" from me... and I see everyone else so far gives it the same. Not only is Wilson back, but Chase and Cameron were in on a differential. How cool was that? Plus, we finally get to hear how Wilson and House actually met; that was something I was wondering about as I watched Season 2 this past week.

Told you this show still had life in it.

I don't recall that. Was it in the episodes or the trailer for next week's episode? I'm checking the recording right now
It was in the episode.

Wilson goes into House's office, they talk, House shows him the DNA test, then Wilson says something, "Well we don't get to choose who our parents are. I'm not even sure we get to choose who our friends are..."

Thanks, NX, pretty much what I figured had happened.

The next episode sounds good too.

That was my favorite scene. Putting the "fun" in funeral, that's our Wilson! Don't piss off Wilson when you have big liquor bottles and antique mirrors/windows in the same room.

I seriously thought he was about to punch House. And I have to admit, part of me kind of wanted him to.
