The end result is great -- House and Cuddy, fantastic -- but the rest of the show sucked.
First of all, what hospital sends their dean of whatever and top diagnositican to an accident site? That seemed so implausible.
Next, were the regular writers bound and gagged in a room somewhere? The writing was terrible! Trite, melodramatic. All around awful. And I know it's not the actors because they've been supberb all year.
Please God don't let the next season suffer from the maladay that hit the 5/18 episode.
