I just don't understand why so many reviewers and commenters just seem to despise House, especially since the show is just as good now as it was when it started, if not better. Here's a few things that people that watch House just don't seem to get:1. One of the central themes of House is that people don't really change, personality wise. They can fake it for a while or get a little better at hiding who they really are, but ultimately people don't change, which is true to life. By this theme House learning nothing in prison and becoming friends with Wilson again is only natural.2. Let me make something perfectly clear, House is the main character of this show, as such he will always get his way eventually like just about all main characters do, which leads me to:3. House is a TV show
I don't get why they fired Charlie Sheen to begin with, he decided to to be an idiot and descend into drugs, alcohol, and womanizing (which BTW is why he worked out so well as Charlie Harper, he WASN'T acting) like EVERY other actor on the planet past and present worth mentioning has, so what? It's not like Sheen was unable to do the show or anything, and it was only a problem because of all the media that wouldn't SHUT UP about it and mind their own business like they always should. Besides, they had no reason to kill off Charlie Harper at all. If they're dead set against bringing Sheen back, there has to be at least ONE actor out there that looks and sounds like Sheen enough to just step in and replace him without a hitch. Sure, it would take some getting used to, but contrary to popular belief, ACTORS ARE NOT IRREPLACEABLE, including for live entertainment, and if they tried hard enough they could have replaced Sheen, even if they did a crappy job it couldn't have possibly ended up worse than with this new guy.
An excellent episode, as always. I must admit that I didn't care much for Klaus ever since his introduction. I saw him as a cliched evil manipulative a$$ and I've been calling for the series to kill off since he finally appeared on screen. However, Klaus has been redeeming himself all of season 3, becoming deeper as a character, and along with everyone else getting more of a history, he's not that boring "I do bad things for no reason because I'm just evil! RAAAAGGGGHHHH!!!!" character anymore.
I for one applauded when House drove his car through Cuddy's house, after how and for the amazingly petty reason that Cuddy broke up with House right after he SAVED HER LIFE I felt she definitely deserved it. As for the people complaining that House could have killed someone, he didn't, pure and simple. The way House just casually said "yeah, I'll feel better" and walked away after that made me laugh too.
