Storyline

Jason is so tired of doctors failing to find what's wrong with him that he demands a diagnosis from the best by holding House at gun-point, with a bunch of other hostages. Gradually some of those are released in exchange for supplies, such as drugs, which Cuddy must personally deliver. He also insists on testing each drug on a hostage first. House still keeps a keen interest in the problem although his sense of priorities frightens his team. Written by KGF Vissers

You have to be kidding
26 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

HOUSE jumped the shark a couple of seasons back with the seemingly unending story arc involving David Morse as a vengeful cop. The following season, it slowly crawled back from the grave. And in the most recent season, it has had its share of ups and downs. The Nov. 25th episode, LAST RESORT, once again dances with that pesky shark. A nutcase takes House, 13 and several civilians hostage, so that House will diagnose this guy's apparently undiagnosable condition. The episode gets really silly, so silly I dare not say for fear of giving away too much in case you decide to watch it. Personally, I got so fed up with it, I never did listen to what was ultimately wrong with the guy. This episode is strictly from hunger. Watch an old episode of LOST instead.
