Did You Know?


House tries to capitalize on returning the CEO to work, i.e. House expects the stock to go up after he heals him. In that case, he should have bought 'call options', not 'put options'. He could have written (sold) put options, but no broker would allow that on margin since options already are a way to create leverage. See more »

Dr. Gregory House: So you want twice as many of them disrespected.
Dr. Jessica Adams: Spend more time with them, you'll treat them more humanely.
Dr. Gregory House: And this time the land war in Russia will be a good idea.

Not the Best, Need To Improve
5 November 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The show is losing its edge. The medical plot is not very good. House places his role to his best. The new team doesn't seem have a good chemistry. The Chinese Doctor girl in the team is annoying. Adams doesn't seem like a doctor character. If things don't pick up the show is unnecessarily inviting its inevitable doom. Foreman is a good replacement for Cuddy but the script writers need to use him better. The little games between House and Wilson seems non-existent. The suspense and excitement in the cases seen in previous seasons is lacking. Directors have to improve the character of the Chinese girl doctor. All in all if the plots and chemistry between the cast don't improve the House MD will lose his medical license!!!!
