Bad sitcom storyline
19 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm giving the show a 5 because the medical case was interesting. Not being a physician, I have no idea how plausible it was, but to a person who knows next to nothing about real medicine, it was very original and interesting.

The "B" storyline, however, was the worst of the worst of old, tired sitcom variety. In fact, only Bill Cosby can really make comic story lines with young children work. As fabulous an actor and comedian as Hugh Laurie is, he was unable to make the "babysitting" storyline work. It was just bad and embarrassing as House and Wilson, the 2 non-fathers acting goofy and silly but not at all funny, try to hide the slightly damaged child from the unsuspecting Mom along with all the ancient and over-used poopy diaper gags. Just really stupid stuff straight out of old, '70's sitcoms. If this is the way the rest if the season is going to play out, we may be seeing the last one.
