This review is from: House Season 6 (Amazon Video)
I started watching House a couple years ago. I was working on a contract at UC Medical in SF. The doctors were commenting about how accurate (or inaccurate) was the medicine. I tuned in.
This season however House seems to have used up the medical premise. Hugh Laurie is now only incidentally a doctor. He seems to be a sort of political prisoner caught in a mental ward. His captor is black. Perhaps they discovered that he didn't vote for Obama?
The black guy, Andre Braugher - who should have won the Oscar for best suporting actor in "Glory" (not Denzel Washington)- has let himself go. He's quite fat now. He now looks like Cedric the Entertainer or Eddie Murphy in one of his fat suits. A couple seasons ago they had a huge fat black guy play a billionaire villian. He was effective because he was taller than Laurie. As was the scary white cop played by David Morse. House the character is very, very smart and Laurie the actor is pretty tall and fit (he boxes for sport), so even with his bum leg he is a hard man to intimidate. This makes playing the plot menace difficult. Braugher - the new chubby Braugher - is not up to the task.
I missed this episode when it was broadcast so I bought it here at Amazon throgh Roku. It looked sensational in HD and I enjoyed not having commercials but like Operation Market Garden (A Bridge Too Far), this may be "A Season Too Many".
