Dr. House and Crew are back for more!
on June 14, 2006
While some shows experience a "sophomore slump" of sorts, this was certainly not the case with "House" which picked up right where it left off with more great stories and more interesting cases. Once again, Hugh Laurie stars as the mysterious and brilliant Dr. House. Also back are his crack team of assistants Drs. Allison Cameron (Jennifer Morrison), Eric Foreman (Omar Epps), and Robert Chase (Jesse Spencer), his loyal friend Dr. James Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard), and his regularly exasperated boss Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein).
In season 2, the show broke the mold a little bit and focused a little more on the backgrounds of the characters to give us a better idea of who they are and how they came to be working at the hospital. Especially interesting was the relationship between Dr. House and his former girlfriend Stacy Warner (Sela Ward). This storyline gave viewers a better idea of who House is and how he came to be the way that he is.
Standout episodes from this season include "Acceptance" (about a death row inmate), "Skin Deep" (about a beauty queen with a bizarre ailment), "Failure to Communicate" (about a journalist who can't talk), "Euporia" (about a sick cop), and "No Reason" (abot what happens after House gets shot).
And of course, House is back with some more zingers:
Jack: "I don't want to hear semantics."
House: "You anti-semantic bastard."
- No Reason
"Why do you wanna sleep on a couch anyway? You got money. At least until the divorce is finalized."
Cameron - "Could pain medication cause an orgasm?"
House - "I wish."
Wilson - "Did you know your phone is dead? Do you ever recharge the batteries?"
House - "They recharge? I just keep buying new phones."
- Failure to Communicate
"Is it still illegal to perform an autopsy on a living person?"
