Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Dr. Felker (as Michael J. Kirkland)


House returns home to Princeton where he continues to focus on his recovery, but surprises Cuddy with the news that he's making a big change in his life. Meanwhile, the team is unable to diagnose a loud-mouthed video game creator who posts each new symptom on the Internet and opts for treatments suggested by the online community rather than by the doctors, and Foreman angles for House's job, but the pressure to solve the case creates tension in his relationship with Thirteen.

What ???
1 October 2009 | by (Nepal) – See all my reviews

Is it just me or this episode was too much of Eric Foreman. I watch House to see Dr. Greg House not Eric Foreman!! Foreman struggles to solve the case and House struggles to keep himself busy. With so much little of House being shown in the episode it gets kind of boring in the middle. But if you are a Omar Epps's fan, you will enjoy it. But I was thinking, "am I watching Dr.House or Dr.Foreman!??" But, this is House, you never know what is going to happen. Except too much of Foreman, the episode is actually good and have some unexpected turn of events. House is changed, he is actually bonding with other people.

All in all, good episode.
