HOUSE “Family Practice” Review

HOUSE "Family Practice" Season 7 Episode 11 - Cuddy’s mom Arlene is back as the patient of the week and she makes things difficult for House (not to mention Cuddy) by not letting him treat her in the "Family Practice" episode of HOUSE.

Uh-oh: abbreviated credits and rain. That means we’re in for a heavy episode-with House in a lab coat for part of it, no less, making my world askew. The actual medical issue is fairly interesting and it’s been a while since Lupus was thrown out as a possibility so that’s fun. I love Candice Bergen and she’s very good as the not always likeable Arlene, but Paula Marshall is completely wasted as Cuddy’s very bland sister. The mother-daughter relationship drama rings true even if "I love you both, but I like her better" is more than a little harsh. I like that Arlene and Cuddy reach an understanding at the end of the episode without having everything completely tied up with a pretty bow. Read More...
