Its all about perception...................
2 October 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I think we r starting to see things come back to normal in princeton plainsboro hospital. And thank god this episode didn't have those over emotional moments b/w House and Wilson.

House is back into his own manipulating, playing games, getting into other peoples head. And as I had hoped we are getting to know more about the new team {Taub}. Like we slowly did in the first season for the old team and I think its good that something changed on the show. I will say yes Foreman has become a kind of a show piece on the show.

But I think the way they r going forward with the show, we will get to see his storyline moving forward with some patient.

This weeks medical mystery was a little boring but the way it reached to an end was kind of refreshing to see. For a change it was Taub who solved the case and not a moment of genius from HOUSE as it more often is.

Looking forward to the next episode involving the really anticipated Road Trip. I hope they give us a great episode Its bad we will have to wait so long for it.......
