Very Enjoyable...
28 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At first I thought I had no idea what would happen in this episode, and then after I saw the trailer for it I realized I knew precisely what would happen. There would be the whole House and Cuddy thing, and I guessed immediately what would happen with the adoption.

There was also a very strange atmosphere, almost numbing throughout the beginning of the episode. Later I found out why, and at the end I could feel the House-e-ness seeping back in. It seemed inexplicably short, though...

Overall I really enjoyed this episode and I'm dying to see the new one in two weeks. Anyone else notice that ever since the writer's strike they've been doing that? Breaking the season up, I mean.

Anyway, it's a good episode and I recommend it to all House fans.
