Articles for House Season 3

Fall 2006 Returning Shows Rank: 12Hugh Laurie is the man. As Gregory House MD on House, Laurie has created a pantheon level character that is the driving force behind his show‘s success. Without Laurie (who is actually British), House would not still be on the air. This is a weird phenomenon. On House, the plot is secondary to the main character. This is the exact opposite of every other procedural on television. In the construction of procedurals, the usual path is to keep the focus away from the main characters. Their personal lives aren‘t ever highlighted and they act only as the mechanism to move the plot along. This is not the case on House, which provides it a freshness that no other procedural really has. Hugh Laurie is one of the best actors alive and it‘s great that he finally fell into a role deserving of his talent. -Oscar Dahl Read more »
House star Hughe Laurie will be hosting the October 28th Saturday Night Live.

Can House pump new life into the ailing mainstay?  Read more »

After a brief, and strangely sorrowful, hiatus House makes it‘s return tonight with the all new episode "Fools for love". Aside from the usual shtick of racing against the clock to unravel the a deadly and mysterious medical condition, this episode promises to be a lessen in humility (of sorts) for Dr. Gregory House -- a lasting lesson? Don‘t bet on it.Guest star, and legendary character actor, David Morse (Contact), appears as a clinic patient who takes an immediate dislike to House‘s bedside manner. This, in itself, is not such a ground breaking plot twist. What is interesting is that this individual has a seemingly endless capacity to usurp the grouchy practitioner. One look at this scene over at My ‘Sold‘ gavel fell with the first words out of Crosby‘s mouth "Your rude, your smart, and your lonely." Something tells me House had no problem with the first two observations; that third may make for fertile ground for Houses new psychological adversary. Crosby will be on board to spar with House for at least six episodes. Read more »

Hugh LaurieCharacter: Dr. Gregory HouseShow: HouseHugh Laurie is an enormously talented actor. He is well-versed in both comedy and drama, on both the stage and screen.

The nominees for the Screen Actors Guild awards were announced today and, as always, prove to be a nice barometer of who really deserves these end-of-the-year acting nominations. Since SAG is comprised of actors, there is no group more qualified to dole out acting awards than them. Therefore, I trusts these awards and nominations more than any other acting nominations.This is not to say I don‘t disagree with some of their choices. I do. My biggest qualms actually come from their film nominees, but we won‘t get into to that. The nominations in each TV category are after the jump, with commentary.  Read more »
I was never more relieved to find out my favorite Doctor was still a drug addict - TV Doctor, that is. Of course, I‘m talking about House, and the wild rouse that culminated into what LOST‘s Sawyer might have called a ‘Long Con‘ at the conclusion of ‘Words and Deeds‘. Up until ‘Deeds‘ much of this season had centered on House‘s struggle with the substance of the character we have come to rely on as a bitter pill; the self effacement, the blatant drug abuse, the bravado, the legendary insults that burn with a shot of vulgar reality, even his cane seemed in question at one point. After ‘Deeds‘, I‘d hoped House was back to true form. With ‘One Day, One Room‘ there is little doubt that House is back. In fact, you‘d hardly know he was ever gone. Read more »

It’s valentines day on House, so the perfect title for this episode is “Insensitive”. The title is, of course a reference to a patients obscure medical condition, in this case a 16 year old car accident victim name Hannah who apparently feels no pain. Don’t worry, there is plenty of ‘romantic’ stuff in this House episode as well, if you consider Cuddy’s surprising blind date ‘romantic’. The big axis of this episode is House’s obsession with the 16 year old girls inability to feel pain. A condition he sees as holding a potential solution for his own chronic pain condition, his curiosity – as usual – comes dangerously close to crossing the line. Wait, this is House, it does cross the line…  Read more »
House finally returns with a stellar guest star, Dave Matthews, and the promise of a major revelation concerning everybody’s favorite crotchety doctor.

Oh, and guest star Kurtwood Smith wasn’t too shabby either as Matthew’s dad. Now, the big question on everybody’s mind… what is the big secret that House is hiding?  Read more »
In the usual House fashion, we open with the about-to-be victim of whatever medical mystery of the week it is. This week it‘s a woman named Fran (Jenny O‘Hara) who answers her door to find a woman named Robin (Meta Golding) who‘s there to offer Fran some "services" for a thousand dollars. Fran passes out while Robin is changing into something sluttier, and Robin puts the cash safely away before calling an ambulance. Fran‘s cat is there. Oh gee, is that foreshadowing? Wilson examines Fran, who claims she and Robin were "looking for her cat" when she fainted. Wilson decides it was because of a motion sickness patch Fran forgot to take off, but after it‘s removed Fran passes out again. Wilson wants to know where House is, and so does everyone else, because this show isn‘t called Wilson MD.  Read more »
