Taub and House spar
4 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Familiar movie actor Brecken Meyer is a down and out artist who is dying. You think it's the paint, do you? Think again! Taub gets to solve the mystery for a change, and the last five minutes play out like an old-fashioned innocent-man-is-about-to-be-executed flick, with Chase about to cut into the poor guy's skull while Taub races around trying to find the answer to the guy's illness. House is sort of on the sidelines in this one, as he is busy poking his nose into everyone's business, especially Taub's. The goofy yet lovable private eye (Michael Weston) is back, and it looks like he may get into Cuddy's pantaloons before House, much to House's chagrin. We also get to meet Taub's wife (Jen Crystal), a sweet lady harboring a Big Secret.
