Cancer?
4 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Is it or is it not cancer? The team must wrestle with this all through the episode. But the real fun comes from watching House interact with a quirky private eye (Michel Weston) he has hired to spy on everyone. The PI is so sharp, he even gets the goods on House, much to House's surprise. A running gag has the fast-talking detective constantly billing House for outrageous amounts, and House asking will he accept a check. Some of the more serious moments are on the squishy, gory side, which I thought the show's makers might lighten up on now that HOUSE runs at 8 p.m. They haven't. Wait until you what happens to Foreman and a leaky corpse. The now-departed Wilson has his moment with House.
