Interesting twist to a real story
13 July 2010 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews


I always find it interesting to see how TV shows will take a real life event and incorporate it into the show. Law and Order was one of the first that I recall to do this on a regular basis. CSI and it's spin offs have been very good at this as well.

This episode of House struck a cord with me as the twist was taken from an event that happened near my current home in Grant County, Indiana. In this episode a young woman was severely injured after a building collapse. In the end we find out that the woman they thought they were treating was actually a co-worker who had a similar age and build.

They story was clearly inspired by the tragic accident in Grant County, Indiana in 2006 in which 5 students from Taylor University were killed when a semi-truck crossed the median on the interstate and hit their van. There was one survivor who was horribly injured. More than a month following the accident it was discovered that she had been mistaken for another girl in the van who had died.

The rest of the episode was classic 'House' with Wilson and House battling in a test of wills. Wilson 'kidnapping' Houses' prize guitar and the inevitable counter blow by House. It was a great way to kick off Season 4 which is my favorite season of the series
