    I really think Wilson will be back. NotFriend seems to have a problem with House's felony. I wonder if House did this to get out of the bill?

    I like this guy. He's Wilson 2.0.

    I'm convinced as well that Wilson will be back. Havne' theard any kind of rumblings that Leonard is leaving. And that exchange he had with House was vintage and superbly done.

    House and another ballsy move, getting NotFriend to switch the meds.

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

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

    So did I. I covered my eyes...:lol:

    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.

    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! :lol:) 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.

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

    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. :p
