Starting off, a teenager with a birth deformity comes in scheduled for surgery to reconstruct his face. But problems occur and we're taken through the whole entertaining cycle once more. The kid can't do the surgery to fix his birth defect until he's cured. And House, as usual, knows (or at least thinks) he's right, but the ever-battling doctors think otherwise. However House pokes his nose into one of the trainees.
And then the doctor from the CIA House hired, got FIRED. I was rather pleased about that because I honestly didn't like her.
But what made this episode stand out from the rest was that this was the first episode of the season where House was humorous. All those hilarious, laugh-out-loud lines were in this one. The first shows of this season didn't have that. House was charming, witty, amusing, and everything.
This episode had it's Season-1 charm and spark back. I'm really hoping the upcoming episodes in season 4 have that same allure. Because up until now, everything was too serious. They loosened up and added the witty and obscene jokes and everything.
Plot: 9/10 It was a little different. Acting: 10/10 Of course. Ending: 10/10 It was happy. Happy endings are good. :)
This episode, explicits the moral fiber of Dr. House, the very reason we admire the character.
Anyway, On the part where Dr. House and Dr. Wilson were sneaking inside the designated cutting room of the film crew to preview the films that has been so far taken, I noticed that the place is filled with MiniDV tapes and what appears to be a AB Roll meant for non-film formats. Where as, as stated in the episode that the camera crew is shooting on black and white film. Hmmm.
Either way this was a good one.
