Cinematography in this episode is weird, kind of like the season opener.

I like that House's character is actually exhibiting change. When he went to talk to the Dad, apologized, and came off like he felt bad, I was rather impressed. Haven't seen that in awhile.

Hard to explain, but the lighting, look, and feel of the episode -the overal cinematogrpahy- just felt "off" from most other episodes. It's a certainly "quality" of it that just doesn't jibe with me.

Anyway: Average. Again, too much Forman (and this episode Chase) and not enough of House puzzle-solving. And not nearly enough Wilson or Cuddy. The sooner we end this Chase storyline and get House back in chage of the department the better.

I feel like we're getting a lot of pieces being put onto the board, and this montage gave this episode more of a midseason finale feel than an episode #5 of the season feel.

I want Andre Braugher back, and sooner rather than later.

IMDB has him only credited for two episodes (Broken and Epic Fail which, I guess, is technically three episodes.)

It was good but it felt more like a setup episode than anything else.

Re: House 6x05 "Instant Karma" - Discussion and Spoilers

One thing this episode proved to me was that House/Wilson is still the best "couple" on this show and always will be. Cuddy can stay, too. I like her. Foreman and Thirteen have got to go.

House canceled the flight. Wilson didn't know beforehand, but went along with Thirteen's accusation to help House out.

I was kind of expecting House to give the money from his insider trading to the father.

Everyone calling her "13" is starting to get old, I must say.

I like it and think it's funny. I love calling her Thirteen.

It's better than "Hadley" (as it's common, it seems, to address these characters by their last names) or even "Remmy."
