Articles for House Season 8

House has a lot of ground to cover as it returns for the season 8 premiere Monday, October 3 at 9pm on FOX. The show ended last year with House crashing his car through Cuddy‘s house and fleeing to a tropical island. That‘s a big mess for the show to clean up, and the season 8 premiere starts the process by focusing all of its attention on Dr. Gregory House.  Read more »
This week on House‘s season eight premiere has the show‘s namesake trading scrubs for a prisoner‘s uniform. While feeling at times too reliant on setting rather than character and plot for tension, it never lapses into jumping the shark. Yeah white supremacists gratuitously show off swastika tattoos, but the medical detective work, struggles with authority and introduction of new regular character Dr. Jessica Adams (played by Odette Annable) make for a well-executed first episode.  Read more »

This week on House the doctor transplanted out of jail and back in the hospital. However initially parole restrictions, drama with Wilson and worst of all losing his furniture make it like House never left.  Read more »
Lesson from this week‘s House: exploit people to the max, but nicely. On that note, Dr. Adams busts out of prison to help House, and we say goodbye to Thirteen. Too Good But Almost True True Patient-in-waiting Benjamin walks into a career outreach center, ragged clothes giving him the look of someone that got lost on the way to Occupy Wall Street. He asks a few questions, drops a check for a million dollars on the floor and promptly leaves. Who says the 1% don‘t care? Benjamin soon collapses in the street. Rushed to the hospital, it‘s discovered he‘s been giving away almost his entire sizable fortune recently. Other than collapsing, his recent altruism is the only symptom presented.  Read more »
This week on House there‘s enough gambling, insider trading and double dealing that it could have been filmed at AIG instead of a hospital. House schemes to re-hire his old team, Dr. Park faces the disciplinary board and another rich man is sick. One-Percenter ProblemsStarting with an old man cleaning toilet paper off his front lawn first made me think this was going to be a Halloween themed episode. Then the camera pans back revealing signs painted with slogans ripped straight out of Zucotti Park and a businessman hung in effigy. Apparently the new hot place to protest is Occupy Suburbia. Aforementioned old man Thad is a CEO about to move his company to China, laying off his American workers. His daughter shows up just when his eyesight begins to go and rushes him to the hospital. Read more »
This week on House, Chase and Taub return, there‘s baby mama drama, and a small-town hero sheds layers of lies and skin. Somehow all these threads come together for a thoroughly satisfying episode.My Affair LadyEverything starts with local upstanding community leader Bob Harris winning a community service award. He wins a commendation for coaching little league, running scholarship funds and probably spending his free time giving paraplegic orphans piggy-back rides to school everyday. Just to rub our noses in what a swell guy Bob is, his stereotypically radiant wife and kids get called onstage to smile and wave with him. Read more »

Put clowns, boxing, an episode of Jerry Springer and diabetes in a blender. Set to "liquefy." Congratulations, you‘ve just made this week‘s episode of House! That, and a heck of a mess. Read more »
Schedule a therapist appointments before watching this week‘s episode of House. A teenage girl with mysterious symptoms, Chase‘s manscaping and a boy diagnosed beyond the grave may leave you with PTSD.Stop This Diagnonsense!Maybe Billy Mays‘ ghost wrote this episode. There‘s not only one major medical storyline, but ANOTHER THROWN IN COMPLETELY FREE! One is a pet project House is pursuing on his own time much to Foreman‘s chagrin. The Dean of Medicine would rather see House focusing exclusively on assigned work, especially if it‘s assigned by Foreman himself. He threatens the curmudgeonly doctor with a trip back to the slammer if he doesn‘t stop multitasking. Maybe you can see where this is going. Read more »
House‘s fall finale, "Perils of Paranoia" is this season‘s weakest moment so far. Between an uninteresting medical case, ridiculous House and Wilson interactions along with forced romances, this firearm-focused episode shoots itself in the foot from the get-go. Read more »

The cases dealt with on House often seem to stretch the bounds of medical science. But there is always a base of truth on which the show is built. By taking a look at actual medical situations that mirror the events on House, we find that the truth is at least as strange as fiction. Read more »

Will Dr. House soon diagnose his final bizarre disease? Will Fringe‘s low ratings mean a sudden turn into non-existence? While final answers to these questions are weeks -- and possibly months -- in the future, we have gotten our first word from FOX about whether shows like House and Fringe might survive past this year.FOX president Kevin Reilly spoke about both House and Fringe when addressing reporters at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. It sounds like the future is uncertain for the two shows. Read more »
After a rather long winter hiatus, new episodes of House finally return next week. The episode centers around a patient in the hospital as part of an Alzheimer‘s drug trial who, as it turns out, may have tried to take his own life. Obviously, this is not the kind of thing that the doctors of House can ignore. How do they react? A video clip from the House episode, "Better Half," gives us a look at how Doctors Chase and Adams view the concept of suicide. Read more »
Today the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the NAACP both announced their annual awards nominations. While there are several gay and African-American characters on TV, these awards usually highlight the lack of diversity by picking out such obscure nominees. The effect only emphasizes how few roles for African-Americans there really are on mainstream television.  Read more »
Now in its eighth season, House is a show that never changes. This week‘s new episode, "Better Half," highlighted that fact more than ever. Dr. House played mind games with Forman and made a ridiculous wager with Wilson. That sentence could‘ve been written back in season 1.  Read more »
Things get a little bit unusual in the next episode of House, "Runaways." Not only does Dr. House taste freedom for the first time in a long while, it looks like he might have some unexpected reactions to his patients. Check it out for yourself with four House videos from "Runaways." Read more »
Excuse me, Your Ear is BleedingThis episode of House, called "Runaways," is riveting with its "Is the teen girl an alcoholic or does she have an aneurysm?" seesaw of a storyline. Throw in the fact that she‘s living on her own due to a mother with heavy substance abuse issues and I‘m hooked. Foreman‘s affair with the married Anita was meh to me, but it was fun to see Taub try to spend more time connecting with his baby daughters. Read more »
During the next House episode, "Nobody‘s Fault," a medical procedure goes wrong. Very, very wrong. We‘re talking wrong enough that even House gets in trouble. In other words, it‘s going to be bad. All that wrongness and badness bring about a review of the House team, conducted by special guest star Jeffrey Wright. Get a glimpse of the mayhem in these videos from "Nobody‘s Fault." Read more »
This week‘s House episode, "Nobody‘s Fault," takes a look at what happens to House‘s team when treatment goes horribly wrong. Guest starring Jeffrey Wright as Dr. Walter Cofield, the physician assigned to review the case, a lot went in to making "Nobody‘s Fault" happen. Check out three videos that explain the process. Read more »
House was amazing tonight! It was fast-paced and riveting with a little "who dunnit" vibe. All we see at the beginning is a bloodied hospital room complete with bloody hand print on the wall. Balloons and flowers in disarray make us wonder what happened here. The only thing I didn‘t like is that everything was done in flashback style instead of straightforward storytelling. We had to wait under the middle of the episode to find out what really happened. Still though, the action was so great that the wait was worth it! Read more »
Here‘s a sentence you don‘t read very often: NBC was the most-watched network last night. Following the huge Super Bowl, NBC kept the momentum going with the second episode of The Voice averaging 17.7 million viewers during its two hours, easily winning the time slot. That was followed by the series premiere of Smash, watched by 11.5 million viewers, easily beating its competition.  Read more »

After the craziness of the last House episode, you can imagine that Chase has some things to deal with. And so he does. As these four clips from the House episode 8.12, "Chase," show, the road to full recovery will take at least one TV hour. Read more »
Nun Too SoonAfter House shows up at his doorstep unannounced asking when he‘s going back to work, Chase finally does. The team welcomes him back -- in their own unique ways, of course. Taub is low key. Adams suggests that Chase get trauma counseling as she is doing to help deal with Chase‘s stabbing.Park confuses Chase by suggesting they get something to eat and discuss the stabbing. I snort when Chase says to Park, "Are you asking me out?" She replies, "No!" totally mortified. Later, Chase figures out Park is afraid of a similar thing happening to her in the hospital. Read more »
Ahh, pilot season -- that time in a TV fan‘s year when we hear about planned new shows, fall in love with it, and then get anxious about whether we‘ll even see them on our screens. And yet we fall in love with them anyway.Tonight‘s casting roundup kicks off with four pilot-y bits, and once that‘s done, we have a Big Love wife going to New York, a new head vampire in Bon Temps, and a purveyor of knowledge heading to Greendale. But yes, the pilot-y bits, yes. Read more »
House may be an evil genius who has managed to keep a medical license through multiple criminal proceedings. But can he fool Immigration when it comes to a fake marriage? The upcoming House episode, "Man of the House," asks that exact question. Three House videos from the episode may begin to give something of an answer. Read more »
The fake marriage thing for Greg House wasn‘t my favorite storyline and the patient plot tonight seemed to drag a little. That said, I always still love this show -- for House‘s little sarcastic barbs and just for the team‘s medical brainstorming sessions, even though I really don‘t have a clue as to all the doctor shop talk sometimes. Read more »
It is often extremely difficult to picture Dr. House as a member of anyone‘s family. And yet he is. This fact will be highly evident in this week‘s House episode, "Love Is Blind," when House‘s mother comes to visit. What will happen when family problems intrude on House‘s day-to-day issues and medical investigations? Keep reading to check out three House videos from season 8, episode 14. Read more »

Along with the patient story of the week on House, I enjoyed the weird goings on of Park ending up on an acid trip and House‘s mother‘s latest husband possibly being the biological da-da of Mr. Greg House. There was a lot going on and yet, all the storylines meshed together nicely! Read more »

The first episode to air in House‘s new 9pm Monday time-slot, "Blowing the Whistle" brings up some impressively timely themes connected to the military. Keep reading to check out three videos showing scenes from the episode. Read more »
Tonight‘s House had a running theme of the team thinking both Dr. House and the Army patient were faking being sick, then changing their minds that they weren‘t. I did like watching and waiting to find out the truth. But in House‘s case, the cranky workaholic wasn‘t doing what he was accused of to get out of work, but rather to see who out of Taub, Adams, Chase and Park he could trust. Read more »
The next House episode, "Gut Check," has it all: ailing hockey players, random housemates and awkward (and potentially explosive) admissions. Want to see for yourself? Check out these three House video clips from "Gut Check." Read more »
Alongside the main patient problem of a hockey player coughing up blood, House reveals to Wilson that Wilson has an 11-year-old son. I liked the first storyline, but not the second ... Read more »
Everyone knows that Dr. Gregory House isn‘t the nicest man on television. The titular character on FOX‘s medical drama House is as antisocial as they come, and he‘s even served jail time. Just when you think there‘s a line he won‘t cross, he crosses it just to prove you wrong.  Read more »
With a patient who is actually crying blood in this week‘s House, you would think that there wouldn‘t be time for wacky hijinks from House and his crew. You‘d be wrong. Check out these three videos from "We Need the Eggs" to see for yourself. Read more »
Since James Brown is dead, I think someone should officially name Ryan Seacrest the Hardest Working Man in Show Business. The host of American Idol, E! News, his own radio show and various red carpet telecasts, as well as future Olympics correspondent for NBC, has landed yet another gig. Seacrest will host FOX‘s upcoming 25th Anniversary Special, airing Sunday, April 22 at 8pm.  Read more »
The concept of someone who cries tears of blood just creeps me totally out for some reason. Sex dolls pretty much do the same thing. Since tonight‘s main patient had both, it‘s safe to say that this wasn‘t my absolute favorite House episode because it was just a little too weird. Who wrote this - a writing team made up of Stephen King and Jackie Collins? The best thing I can say about House this week is that it was still very watchable with its running theme of relationships, or more precisely, the lack thereof. Plus, I really wanted to know what in the heck caused the patient‘s bloody tears! Read more »
How do dreams figure into a medical diagnosis? That‘s what House and his team need to figure out in "Body and Soul." Keep reading for a sneak peek at the episode, including four House videos. Read more »
After 8 seasons, dozens of critically ill patients and more pills than any one person should be able to survive, House will reach its series finale on Monday, May 21. What can we expect from the end of House? Keep reading to find out! Read more »
It was an interesting House tonight. It had it all: levitation, sex dreams and a shocking character illness. Wilson tells House, who is all caught up in his feelings for Dominika, that he has cancer. This was a gut-puncher right at the end of the episode. Before that, the main patient drama involved a little Asian boy who kept having choking dreams - the same dreams his father had! -- and grandpa had to do a little dancing and gong-hitting right by his grandson‘s bed. It was either that or the ibuprofen that saved the kid!  Read more »
There are only four episodes of House left as the FOX drama nears its series finale, and things are definitely getting serious. The latest episode ended with a shocking pronouncement that will have a huge impact of the rest of the series.  Read more »
It looks like we‘re going to get a very crowded House series finale this May. In an impressive bit of (re-)casting, Jennifer Morrison will make a guest appearance on the final episode, "Everybody Dies." Read more »
"The C-Word." After last week‘s bombshell of an announcement from Wilson, the title of the next House episode begins to make sense. But will Wilson‘s illness be the only problem of the week? That‘s not likely. Check out these three House videos from "The C-Word" to find out. Read more »
The beauty of this week‘s House wasn‘t in the main case of a very sick little girl. Yeah, the girl was adorable and her case was interesting, but it was the mechanics of the true friendship between Wilson and House that worked flawlessly for this fan. Read more »
With only a few episodes left before the House series finale on Monday, May 21, what will the show give us next? We know House will go out with some sort of bang, and the next step to that explosion is this week‘s episode, "Post Mortem." Keep reading to check out three House videos from the episode. Read more »
The great buddy story keeps getting greater. Wilson wants to live what‘s left of his life to the fullest and of course, he wants his bestie along for the ride - especially in a hot red convertible. We get to see the friends do what Wilson wants, but also see Wilson battle his inner demons of being complacent as to what is going on versus just refusing to give in or up. Another amazing part of the episode tonight was that the main medical case, which was all done without House for a change, involved another doctor in the hospital as the patient! Read more »
We are getting close to the end of House. The stakes are high -- literally life and death -- and we have no idea how or if House is going to make it through the end. These three videos from "Holding On" show just how rough the situation is. Read more »
Continuing on from the last episode, Gregory House seems to be becoming more and more unglued. The worse off his cancer-ridden bestie, Dr. Wilson, gets, it seems the more unthinking and reactionary the brilliant medical man becomes. I have to say that nothing or no one can tear me away from the TV these past few weeks during House. The show is just that good now and we‘ve still got the two-hour finale next week!  Read more »
House is close to its end. After 8 seasons, the world‘s most curmudgeonly doctor will hang up his stethoscope and limp into history. How will it all end? These three House series finale videos might give you a clue. Read more »
As a super duper House fan, I can‘t help but feel a little cheated at not having the two hour finale continue the story. Instead, the first hour was about the making of the show. Sure, there were some interesting and fun moments here and I love Hugh Laurie. But hearing his real accent pushed the character of Dr. Gregory House further from my mind when I couldn‘t wait to find out the season ending of what becomes of House and Wilson. When that did happen, it turned out to be more than worth it for me. I still wish the House series finale had been a two-hour story, but I‘m not disappointed with what we did get. Read more »

Doctor is easily one of the most popular TV character professions. Doctors are everywhere on TV and not just on shows that are set in a hospital or some other type of medical office. This is why it was a particularly genius move by Cigna, which is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to unite some of the most famous doctors on TV to deliver a very important message.  Read more »
