‘House’ Recap: Risky Business

Because of the nature of television and the tradition of filming episodes sometimes months before they air, shows are rarely able to comment on events that are happening in the present. This week’s... //www.starpulse.com/news/Matthew_Newlin/2011/11/02/house_recap_risky_business

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 focusing on 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... //www.daemonstv.com/2011/10/31/house-risky-business-review/

House Review: "Risky Business"

Halfway through tonight's episode of House, " Risky Business ," I started looking at my watch.  Typically I only care about the time to see if House is coming up with his routine epiphany at 5 of the hour.  Tonight it was purely out of boredom.  Here's the problem with tonight's episode.  Well, one at least.  I only care and know about Wilson and House.  So when an episode focuses on Dr. Adams and Dr. Park, I tend to care a lot less about the action on screen.  Not only did I learn nothing new about House this evening--he's an ass, he's conniving, he's dishonest, he's brilliant--but I also noticed that Dr. Adams is quickly moving into a type of role I'm uncomfortable with.  One thing she's doing that I don't like is trying to control House in a similar way Cuddy did.  Remember that episode way back in season 3 that the writers have clearly forgotten about?  It was called "One Day, One Room" and in it, Cuddy gave House more clinic hours in the hopes that he might actually feel something for people and spark some humanity in him.  And here we are, 5 years later presented with a cleavage-y, smart, slightly naive character (minus 15 years of age) that is Cuddy's poor stand-in.  Also Thirteen's, since she is so clearly willing to go to bat against the patients.  Or was that Cameron?  Sigh...I've lost track of young, sexy female doctors that have come through the series at one time or another.
