The operation was a success, but...
25 March 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

House must deal with a homeless woman who is dying for no apparent reason, and toward whom Dr. Foreman seems to be coldly indifferent. An unusually satisfying episode for two reasons: The acting of the actress playing the ill-fated homeless woman, who is absolutely harrowing, and a diagnosis that for a change does not lead to a happy ending. I will say no more. Just let it be noted that I had been wondering how long Dr. House was going to continue to work clichéd miracles, if you get my drift. Here we go: IMDb wants more lines than I am willing to write, and I am not willing to pad out my review in this case. Having said that, I will note that in a Season One episode, House momentarily affected a veddy British accent, which had me howling, knowing the actor is about as British as you can get off screen. Laurie appeared on a couple of TV talk shows recently, and you could cut his accent with a knife. Apparently while working, he maintains his American accent from dawn to dusk. Makes me wonder how he ever gets through the scenes with the heavily accented, blonde-haired Aussie doctor without losing his cool.
