Plot a bit too familiar....

Okay, for those of us that waited out the writers' strike that made this episode come out 6 months after the previous (and in the same season), this was pathetic. I love House, and could predict what the deal with House was from the second "team #2" diagnosed him. He faked cancer to make a point, and get what he wanted, an STD doesn't come as a shock to me. I am hoping this isn't a slippery slope into repeat episodes with a different team. Yes, the theory used in the show, about the bell curve, and who lies on the extremes, but there are exceptions to every exception. I thought for their first episode back from the strike, this was NOT the way to go.

No More Mr. Nice Guy

I really appreciate the first, very complete summary written, as these episodes are so complex I usually have to watch them twice. That's a good thing, as I don't like dumbed down shows or movies where they think they have to explain everything to the audience.

However, I don't think we can assume that House doesn't have syphilis, just because he says he baited his team with blood that had been contaminated. They are playing with us, of course, which is what House is known for, but it is possible that the first time he was going to tell Wilson something, he was going to say that his team had diagnosed him with syphilis, and that he did have it. Then he realizes that he can simply tell Wilson that he faked it, and he will tell Amber, who will tell the team and everyone will think he doesn't have it, when he actually does. That way he doesn't lose face. Also, they won't keep scrutinizing his behavior to see if he is becoming nicer (because supposedly the disease affects personality and also intelligence -- go figure).

Not House at his best

House is in open war with Amber in NO MORE MR. NICE GUY, but the episode drags and House is way beyond his normal curmudgeonly self. After awhile, in fact, you wish he'd just disappear. While House and Amber duke it out, Wilson stays largely silent and Cuddy ends up playing referee. The patient this time around is a middle-aged man afflicted with being too nice, which House figures has to be due to a disease. No one can be that nice without being sick, he reasons. The man is married to one of the hospital nurses, played by an amazing actress (I think she is Bobbie Bergstrom) whose face in several closeups reveals an astonishing range of changing emotions. The episode falls flat all too quickly, however, and all I can think of is perhaps different writers may have been involved. Who knows? Maybe it's the director's fault. For those who have missed the old team, by the way, they play a bigger role in this episode. It's funny to see Cameron and her lookalike, 13, sitting near each other in a couple of scenes as they simultaneously try to figure what's wrong with their patient -- and House.
