Maybe I wasn't paying enough attention, but to me that in no way looked like a murder attempt. It was more 'fuck you', instead of trying to kill anyone.

The last time he (and we) saw the house, Cuddy and her guests were sitting around the table, apparently having a meal or something. House then drove his car into that room at a speed that would probably have killed anyone sitting at that table.

Err, I thought it looked like he drove into the room next to the dining room - because he got out, and some of them were still sitting at the table and looked him - right?

I took it as a 'fuck you' move too, similar to when he was smashing Wilson's office stuff. If he were intent on hurting someone, he wouldn't have silently walked past the entire party of people he was angry at without doing anything.

Actually, it was anticlimactic. We have no new information, no new character development. House is still angry, irrational, and reckless. When has that ever not been the case? It's a perfectly fine episode, I never get sick of House's antics, but I feel like I was expected to be surprised and shocked that he would do something like that, and I think I'd be more surprised and shocked if he didn't do something like that. I was expecting something a bit more extreme out of him after preforming surgery on his own leg. I realize that House can't die, but I think that's the only thing that can really take the stakes any higher than they've already been all season.

Also, did this line seem like a Narm to anyone else?

Yeah, I had pretty much the same reaction with that second part. Also, since I usually can't remember Taub's name, I mentally tagged him as 'Jewish stereotype'. His storylines have been annoying, and I really don't want to see him back.

I'm not sure where this season is even going to go. I'm guessing that they'll probably get him out in the next episode or two (like when he was in the psychiatric facility). What they'll decide to do after that is unknown though.

Spoiler:
I like the prison setting because the consequences are back in place if House mouths off. Being an asshole to Cuddy was getting boring because I knew that she'd just sit back and take it. Here there's the real danger that House will get pounded if he pushes someone too far.

Also, there's something really satisfying about seeing someone take a swing at House when he really deserves it. Does anyone else feel this way?

So, another intern? I wonder which of the old cast they're going to bring back this time. I really like the fact that House is now under Foreman's control - I think that will be interesting. Also, I really liked at the end when Wilson punched him.

Wouldn't he automatically have had his medical license revoked when he was in the clink? Surely he would at least have to reapply for it.

In real life, yes. However, for the purposes of the tv show, they would have to have some way to handwave him into getting one - here it's by having him on parole doing public service by diagnosing people.

Would your medical license get revoked if you commit a non-doctory crime? I mean, 13 assisted her brother with suicide. I can understand losing a license because of non-approved euthanasia. But the crime House committed wasn't abusing his medical prowess in any way, so would you lose your license for that?

I'd imagine you would still lose your license for any felony, how many people want a doctor who is a felon? If i knew my doctor was I'd probably change.

Park is both a somewhat common WASPy name and a very common Korean name. Although "Park" may not be quite as common as a WASPy name as "Parker." Other variants include "Parke" and "Parks." (Rosa Parks' ancestors were probably not owned by a Korean master.)

As for the latest PotW:
Spoiler:
I realize that his behavior was supposed to be "sick," but what got me is that he did very "logical" (if slightly nutty) applications of basic Peter Singer-ish utilitarian benevolence when it came to comparing himself vs. some other cause (e.g., 1/4000 chance of death in self vs. 1/1 chance of death in Wilson's patient with renal failure), but he never seemed to bother doing comparisons of the various causes. Being a true charitable maximalist doesn't just require that you pick between Medecins Sans Frontières and granite countertops for your kitchen -- it requires that you pick between Medicins Sans Frontières and Oxfam too -- no matter how many millions you have, you can't give the same dollar twice to two charitable causes. Given that his illness seems to have warped his priorities, but not his basic ability to think lucidly, it's weird that this never even comes up, especially considering that he considers endowing House, who runs an extremely wasteful practice in bang-for-buck utilitarian terms. (Didn't Vogler (accurately) point out a while back that the Department of Diagnostic Medicine does something like treat 30 patients a year with four physicians?)

I found the whole Adams vs. Park gift war thing pretty stupid. I'm not exactly sure why it seemed sillier than the random shit House and Wilson pull on each other, but it did. Maybe it's just that they've already developed this weird rivalry after one day, rather than being BFFs for a long time like House and Wilson.

Since you brought it up, I was wondering what everything thinks on the issue of an extremely good, yet expensive medical team that helps ~30 people a year versus spreading that money out to help more people. On the one hand if the money was spread out the hospital would probably be able to help many more people, yet on the flip side we can probably assume all the people House and his team successfully would have very little hope of recovery seeing as there isn't many other heavily funded diagnostic departments in the area (and even if there were such other departments available, one could make the same argument that they should be de-funded as well for the good of society.)

I kind of think of their jobs as sort of half-and-half real doctoring and medical research. Because I bet they publish many more papers than any other similarly sized medical team, even if it's not actually shown, simply by virtue of the interesting nature of all the cases that come their way. It's the only way I can think of to justify their jobs.

And House is meant to be kind of a 'big deal' within the medical community, which he wouldn't get to be just from people hearing of this doctor that does crazy shit so ye even if the writers haven't considered it I'm gonna say that papers are being published. Just to let the show make more sense.

In addition to the 30 or so cases a year, there's also clinic duty. We just don't see the assistants doing that often, if ever, because it probably wouldn't be that entertaining. At least two episodes have mentioned House's team publishing papers:
Spoiler:
In one, Cameron is upset because she left her write up of a case with House for approval, and House took so long that Foreman writes his own piece and gets it published in the meantime.

In another, a Cuban couple emigates to America because the wife is sick, the Cuban doctors can't help her, and the husband's research has convinced him that House is the man he needs to see.

Still, when 13 said something last episode about coming back because she wants to put her doctor skills to use helping people, my first thought was that she should probably look for a job helping more than one person a week.
