Airborne or Hysterical !
10 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dr.House this time is in the mid-air on a flight back home and one patient starts vomiting and display symptoms of a contagious disease or may be not. Dr.House with his wit and humour tries to make the situation less tense. This episode will tell you that House can solve medical problems anywhere. With little medical equipment on the plane how he manages to solve this case is amazing. And who is his team this time? fellow passengers who have no clue what is going on. He just needs someone to talk to and do the brainstorming. Thats all he needs. His comic timing is awesome and the scene where he proves how everyone is hysterical is enjoyable. He is a genius. On the ground meanwhile there are lot of things happening in the hospital. Chase scores another with his ability to come up with the solution for the Old lady. He did really well but ending is heart breaking. I can only wonder what Dr.Cameron is thinking. Seriously, its high time Dr.Cameron decides what she wants. Men are more sensitive than Women. This episodes certainly highlights that. Overall, it was one of the better episodes this season. It was enjoyable and House was at his best. :)
