While treated for light lesions received in a motorcycle accident in Middletown, House proves ER Dr. Kurtz wrong twice about another ER patient: bike accident victim Lee. He reveals that Lee is neither brain dead nor received his brain injury from the crash but the other way around. Lee anxiously hears everything but loses the ability to communicate with his eyelid movements because of a brain biopsy. Taub hopes to convince House to cancel his ill-considered resignation. Wilson jousts with House about why he was in Middletown, while both fear their secrets may be discovered. Written by KGF Vissers

Annoying as all Hell
24 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

I couldn't even finish watching this episode. The POV from the patient's bed is quick and jerky and the edges blur. The viewer is constrained to basically just the thoughts of the patient, who is essentially entombed within his own body and it makes for a lacking plot in my opinion.

From what I've read of other reviews the show eventually splits and a regular standard TV angle is used. Points for originality for trying something different, I just personally didn't enjoy it. Perhaps if the producers try this again they could switch earlier on to the "regular" action and spread out the options a little bit.
