Since this episode circulates around an office catastrophe, as a play on to the show that was also popular at the same time, The Office (U.S.) (2005), a few scenes are shot in the same style. See more »

It's funny to see Morrison, Epps and what's-his-name, the Aussie, listed in the credits and walking along with House -- when they are nowhere to be found in the first episode of the fourth season, not even as flashbacks or ghosts, as they will be seen in the second episode of HOUSE's fourth year. Beyond that, ALONE at first appears to be a rehash of an old episode involving a wife who, unlike her husband, secretly doesn't want kids and makes herself very sick in the processof avoiding pregnancy. But appearances can be deceiving, and by the end of this episode, we are faced with a much darker truth. ALONE is downbeat from beginning to end, even with some silly plot elements such as Wilson "kidnaping" House's $12,0000 electric guitar and House "kidnaping" one of Wilson's patients in return. No team in this one, so it falls completely on House and Cuddy to carry the ball. In the next episode, House will start building a new team, thank God. And he will encounter "specters" of his original team. Kids, don't do drugs. After a very shaky third season, which I honestly thought might be its last, HOUSE desperately needs to get back in gear. We will see where subsequent fourth season episodes take us. Frankly, partly because of its bomberoonie third season, I am less interested in HOUSE this season than I am in the seventh and final season of SCRUBS, which itself limped along in its sixth season. But I will keep watching HOUSE to see if it can recover. MONK seems to be back on track after a couple of uneven seasons. If MONK can do it, why not HOUSE? And SCRUBS, for that matter? The rest of you can go watch that horrible soap, GREY'S ANATOMY.
