I only started to watch House recently (a couple episodes ago), but I can see why so many people like it. This latest episode is a great example of whats the show so good. The mystery created in the beginning with House and the stripper set up the mood of the rest of the episode.
House's flashbacks helped us see how he thinks and why he is the genius he is. Combined with the witty banter and the suspense, I find myself at the edge of my seat. I can't wait for next week's season finale.
