A sense of mystery
10 October 2007 | by xredgarnetxSee all my reviews

Let's clear up that odd title: It refers to how long a patient lies dead after attempting suicide, near the beginning of the episode. Those 97 seconds will figure prominently later in the story, which otherwise has House and the remainder of his original 40 (see last week) dealing with a crippled man who is dying faster than he should. Young (and sexy) actress Anne Dudek is back as a very sassy doctor looking to join House's team no matter what, as is veteran character actor Peter Jacobson as a wily and incisive plastic surgeon. The ending of 97 SECONDS is not for the squeamish, and proof of the brilliance of this show, which admittedly has had its uneven moments. To the show's producers: Just don't bring back David Morse (see last season), as much as I love the guy! That's one horse you beat to death several times over.
