HOUSE “Risky Business” Review

HOUSE "Risky Business" Season 8 Episode 4 – House returned this week from its long baseball-induced hiatus, and I thought that since the episode airing on Halloween meant we would be focusingon the holiday a little bit more. So when guest star Michael Noori walked out of his mansion to find that his front yard had been TP’d, I thought it was because some neighborhood kids got into someHalloween hijinks, but instead it was because some patriotic individuals were vandalizing his house to protest him moving his company to China. After he starts seeing everything through a fish eye lens (Everything looks cooler through a fish eye lens!), he is admitted to Princeton-Plainsboro, and off we go!

For one more episode, we’re back to the two girl team of Adams and Park helping out House with his diagnosis. I, for one, am actually a fan of this team configuration. I’m starting to like Adams a lot more, as House is busy accusing her of sleeping with somebody or interviewing for another job since she showed up late to work. I’m also growing to like Park more and more, as she gets some interesting progressions on her sexual harassment story this week. I’m really a fan of Charylne Yi’s acting style. She’s incredibly subdued, subtle, and quiet. It’s a great foil to the over-the-top performance that Hugh Laurie gives as House. Just looking at the little eyebrow raises and glances she makes are really great for a character on this show. I’m not saying she’s an acting genius or anything, but I really think she’s a refreshing change of pace from all the pretty faces we’ve had on the diagnosis team over the years. Watching her run into House’s office triumphantly kissing her biceps after passing her hearing was great. Read More...
