shows the diversity of the complicated man and doctor that make up house
31 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed the episode and the dialog. I think it was very well written. It shows us viewers that House has a side that he constantly struggles to keep hidden; which reveals his true reason for his misery. It is a breakthrough episode which will lead to House showing more humanity as the episodes continue to still knock our socks off of us as highly interested viewers. I hope that the future episodes continue to be as wonderful as this one. I find the complexity of the characters and the complexity of each episode to be very well balanced. I hope David Shore can continue to write more episodes with this terrific balance and also bring in the wonderful guest stars that make this show the highly loved show that it is.
