    Considering that knee story came from the Daily Mail, I never did believe it.

    And I'm sorry if there are any fans of . . . you know who . . . here. I've been gutted over character losses before, so I shouldn't make fun.

    Thanks for clarifying that, I was only able to watch the first half of the interview.

    I would so rather they get rid of the "other one". I am speaking riddle-like since I forget how to black out.

    Ah, a House thread! :saint:

    I loved the new episode too, but why WHY of all women Franka Potente? She is a nightmare. :scream: I didn't know who the others were.

    I loved the interaction between House and the rest pf the patients, especially how he took the guy out to the amusement park. That was such a touching and unique moment. :swoon: And when the lady started to play chello... :wuzrobbed I totally cried.

    Episode 3 "Epic Fail" promo:

    I wish there would be a way to watch it on the internet. I hate to wait 2-3 days till someone puts the episode up. :(

    I like her very much. In what way do you find her a nightmare?

    You can watch it on Hulu or on the Fox website 8 days after the episode airs. If you know a place to watch it 2-3 days after the episode's shown.... I'd be interested to know. :shuffle:

    Sorry, I just think she is a terrible actress. :( After all these years she still couldn't sort out her accent when she stars in non-German movies, she is like a dead fish in emotional scenes... and she used to date Elijah Wood, so I have all the rights to hate her. :p

    Shhhhh. Torrent. :sekret:

    Only in the states... In Canada you can watch them on globaltv.com but they're only up the weekend after they air.

    So, new episode last night. What did everyone think?

    I enjoyed it, liked the scenes with House and his shrink, laughed hysterically at House in cooking class with Wilson, and at how House turned out to be a great cook. :lol: I'm sure they'll all be bummed if he gives up cooking totally because he's bored. Also liked his openness about why he was cooking so much. And they surprised me with his confession of slipping up!

    But, I thought the editing was really odd or maybe just bad. A lot of scenes that had 2 characters in the shot at the same time only had half of each person. I noticed it particularly when Foreman and Thirteen were talking to the patient and it really annoyed me. Also, I wasn't crazy about Foreman's whole attitude when he was put in charge. Haven't we seen him fail before at running a department like this? And next week, House appears to come back. I just hope they're not going to totally rehash everything we've seen before.

    Oh, and I also liked the exchange where House says to his shrink, something like, what if nothing in the world works for me (to keep his mind off his leg and stay off the vicodin)? And the shrink kind of eyeballs him and says something like well, if nothing in the world works, we'll deal with it then. I thought it was a perfect delivery, perfectly showing House his extreme way of thinking there isn't helping him.

    I thought this episode was kind of a let-down. The first episode was just so *good*, and now that we've gone back to the same-old, same-old format, I felt a bit bored.

    I'm sure it doesn't help that I don't like 13 or Foreman all that much, and that the brunt of this episode focused on them.

    I like the scenes between House & Wilson, then again I'm not surprised since every scene they have together since the Pilot are brilliant.
    The rest was very meh for me, mostly because I could not be more bored about 13 and Foreman, the second Taub quitted, it was over.
    The promo made me hopeful though.

    Yeah, I agree with you there!

    BTW, did Taub really quit? Or will he come back when House does?

    I was a bit bored by this episode but it might be just my attitude today.

    OMGOSH I KNOWWWWWW! I thought it was just me or there was some artistic license!!! Like there was some point to half their face or 3/4 of their face being off the screen. And not just 1 character. Both of the characters in the shot! :huh::lol:

    Seriously that BUGGED me sooooo much!

    Anyways, about the episode. I knew the ending was coming. It was obvious. From the start you could see that House needed something to keep his mind off drugs. So the question in my head was, why wouldn't he go back to being a doctor? A diagnostician? I mean seriously, he really doesn't have to be around drugs. I mean, yes he's in a hospital and sometimes administers drugs, but for the most part he doesn't. So I don't see the problem.

    However, I could see how the attitudes of his peers/coworkers might affect him. Possibly make it seem more comfortable to drift back to old habits.

    I do have to say though, I :lol: when Cuddy came over and House and the asian lady were talking mandarin and then she told Cuddy to either kiss him or leave :lol:

    As for 'you know who' leaving, I am disappointed. There's no pay off especially when you know how things are going to end for the relationships of the leavee. I mean it sucks. And the writers suck for doing it.:rolleyes::huh:

    Am I a bad House fan if my dream three would be Cameron, Chase and Taub? 13 getting fired and Taub quitting will certainly make a case to bring the dream team back together under House when he returns. I was wondering how they'd eventually get them all back together rather than having the three (esp. Cameron and Chase) playing bit parts all the time like they have since House started recruiting a new team.

    I can't see the back of Foreteen fast enough...I hate the cheap jokes about her sexuality and her tenuous-now/not-tenuous-later personal health story and his ridiculous overeagerness to be in charge.

    I liked the episode maybe because I can appreciate House's obsessiveness with whatever he did to fill that time. And Wilson still rocks...what a perfect straight-man for House.

    Would everyone please stop talking in riddles and tell me which character(s) are leaving? Pretty please?

    Yeah, it's getting old. (Although "I'm short, he's black, you're gay . . . ish" was kind of funny. But the rest of it felt old.) The duckling scenes without House seemed very weak to me, in an otherwise strong episode.

    I'm sorry but if they're firing people based on going behind the persons back and questioning them, Foreman would have been fired EARLY in Season 1. :lol:

    Cameron is leaving :wuzrobbed I personally love her

    Eys, totally (to both points :wuzrobbed). I finally saw the episode yesterday, and I too loved House's obsessiveness in cooking and the "ball-jokes". :lol:

    Not sure how I feel about tonight's episode, does anyone else find it very political or am I reading too much into this?

    Yeah, it was really political. But it was also different. I don't think we're supposed to know how to feel about it. ;)

    I think I liked it. But then they had me at the Say Anything reference. :lol:

    I haven't watched the show since the beginning of last season, as I was getting quite disappointed.

    I really liked this episode, though Mr Lanie was like, "Oh, my God! Darth Vader and Dr House!" :rofl:

    The House/Wilson stuff is priceless as always. I want a show with just them snarking at each other.

    Interesting tidbit for Canadian House fans, David Shore wrote for Due South! I had no idea... Ryan Phillipe also guest starred... completely irrelevant but interesting...

    I think I liked this episode, but I need to watch it again. It was certainly a different sort of House episode. I really like how House is trying to change, but his automatic responses to things are still not always the best. And laughed at how Wilson automatically assumed House was at fault with the downstairs neighbor. And when he went in and injected the guy with a sedative and he woke up bound and gagged... I was just, oh House, what are you doing? And then laughed when he admitted this was a setback in his efforts to change.

    Really am not liking Foreman at all. I've never really liked the actor's portrayal and he's not doing anything to change my mind.

    Thought Hugh was great as always. So many fine shades of emotion cross his face.

    This last episode was *so* much better than the one from last week. Wow. Better writing, well acted. I even liked watching Forman and 13.

    Loved Chase. OMG. And I'm not usually a fan.

    Me too. Loved this ep. Although now I'm struggling to figure out how the spoiler we know is coming is going to happen....I mean now that we know HE did what he did, how is the spoiler going to come about?

    Yeah, that's a good question. There's no way he's going to let you-know-who take the fall; he was clearly eager to protect that person from getting dragged into it.

    Don't think so. Everyone has been talking about Jennifer Morrison leaving, not Jesse Spencer.

    I didn't get it mixed up. The original source was quite clear.
    Rumour has it that that Cameron is leaving as a result of what we saw Chase do in the most recent episode. Cameron could come back as a guest star later in the season.

    I meant to write before that I thought it was interesting that Chase has gone from a seminary student to a doctor who fights to protect his patients to a murderer. :( Some might believe it was for a good cause, but he still murdered the patient. Kind of an unexpected trajectory for his character.

    They don't plan to kill Cameron off, according to rumours.

    As he said, he doesn't expect to come out of this unscathed.

    Is he still devout, or did he fall away from the church? Do we know?

    Ah crap....I really don't want it to be a crisis of morals that brings it about....I'd prefer the other!
