So my wife is a big fan of “Top Chef” on Bravo. While she was catching the latest episode on DVR the other day, I walked into the room to grab a beer and head back upstairs to continue playing video games. As I passed by she said, “Doesn’t this guy look like Chase?” and I’ll be damned if Dr. Robert Chase wasn’t standing there in a chef coat, staring at me through the screen. It was especially eerie because a chef coat and a doctor coat look so similar. Things must be really tough for Jesse Spencer, the actor who plays Chase, as Jennifer Morrison, the steamy actress behind Dr. Cameron ended their engagement. Yeah, they were engaged, like in real life. But you don’t have to go looking for work/play everywhere Jesse, especially not Bravo reality shows. The Real Housewives of Orange County couldn’t hold a candle to Dr. Cameron. For shame.
You go ahead and decide for yourself if you think it’s him, I think the pictures speak for themselves. A summary of this week’s events after the jump.

This is what a police sketch of House might look like. Tonight I thought we might need a police sketch of House, because a desperate diagnosee went all Dog Day Afternoon, taking hostages in Cuddy’s office and the SWAT team showed up. My other primary thought was how forced this premise seemed and how this really could be looked at as a last resort attempt to muster suspense for “House M.D.” It’s all been done before, or as we in the business like to say, “Simpsons did it.” Follow up after the jump to see the other reasons I was disappointed by this week’s episode.

Thank God that whole electing the president thing is over, I mean, between that and World Series confusion, I thought “House” would never get back to owning its rightful time slot. But alas, when American Idol comes back on Jan. 19, the whole of Fox’s broadcast schedule will be turned on its head, so mark your calendars accordingly. Also notable, “House” and star Hugh Laurie have been nominated for People’s Choice Awards. This week, more of the fine woman pictured above, albeit in a blonde I find slightly less appealing; Cuddy and House “need to talk” about making out last episode; and some crazy guy has to be treated in his apartment because he is petrified of the outside world.

There are some who might tell you that World Series Game 5 is postponed due to inclement weather. Those of us on the inside know what the truth is: “House” will not be denied. This week’s episode brings us significant events from the Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) wants a baby story line that began in Season 2. She has been so desperate that she tried to adopt all of the world’s underprivileged children and homeless pets. I kid, but glance at those, that woman is all sorts of admirable. Meanwhile “Huddy” shippers (that’s jargon for fans who hope/predict that certain characters in a book/show/movie are going to bang) around the world are rejoicing because House and Cuddy share an on-screen kiss.
Also some guy is having massive blackouts and sweating blood but honestly, no one cares about that this week. More fun after the jump.

As I did my weekly research into infectious disease and genetic disorders for these here recaps, I came across the depicted case of Bumbling British Doofusism. Your resident gun-slinging, cavalier, loose cannon, maverick, Lone Ranger doctor’s first wedding. It could just be me but she kind of looks like Cuddy.

Well, I’m back. After a trip to the World Series to watch my beloved Boston Red Sox and a promising job interview, I can finally resume my House recaps and feel like I’m justified to write “Dr. & Mrs. Greg House” all over my notebooks. So let’s get to this week’s episode. You guys have waited long enough.
Episode 6, entitled “Whatever it Takes”, opens on the track where two drag racers are waiting for the green light. Casey, a female driver, is checking her controls and talking to her dad, Biff Tannen. Yes, that Biff Tannen. “I feel like throwing up my guts,” he tells her before she gets into the car. “Are you sure you don’t want to go to law school?” he asks. “No, I hate lawyers,” she responds. Excellent! This makes them prime candidates for potentially botched medical treatment at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital.
The music swells–either My Morning Jacket or the theme song from Nintendo’s “Toobin’”–as she accelerates down the track. I briefly thought that Casey was a character created as an homage to ovary-bearing IndyCar driver Danica Patrick, but that idea was dashed when Casey actually won a race. (more…)

This week’s episode, titled “97 Seconds”, opens on a handicapped man in an electric wheelchair waiting at a crosswalk (which I believe was also the name of Primitive Radio Gods’ mid-1990s hit). He tells his service dog that he’s cold and the dog hands him a blanket. The man suggests heading to the ice cream store to check out “the new girl who’s not too fond of buttoning her top button”, which answers my lingering question about whether, um, all of his parts are disabled. It still leaves me curious whether the dog would have to move that into place as well.
The light changes and as the man begins to cross the road, he falls unconscious. The dog barks, trying desperately to wake him. Meanwhile, a young woman is driving her giant SUV toward the crosswalk, paying no attention to anything beyond the radio dial she’s fiddling with. She flips through a number of stations before settling on one playing “Let Me In” by Hot Hot Heat. She glances back up, just in time to slam on her brakes and avoid the still unconscious man, narrowly avoiding a tragedy and disproving the adage that guns don’t kill people, people who listen to indie rock kill people.

When I heard that Episode 2 was titled “The Right Stuff”, I had high hopes that it would somehow involve the New Kids on the Block. That scenario became less likely when the episode opens in the cockpit of a jet. The pilot is having difficulty navigating, and before she can voice her concerns, everything turns all psychedelic like she just flew through the poster rack at Spencer Gifts. The plane spirals out of control, crashes, and the screen goes dark. Out of the blackness, a metal door slides open to reveal that the pilot has been working in a flight simulator. She has a list of complaints that she gives the technician, everything from the gyroscope to the communication system, but she fails to mention her giant teeth. He assures her that he will fix the problems, pats her on the head, and gives her a carrot.
Meanwhile House is addressing a classroom full of potential team members, all wearing what appear to leftover race numbers from Michael Scott’s Rabies 5K. He gives them the challenge of determining why Buddy Ebsen’s makeup allergy prevented him from making movies and why this same affliction couldn’t strike Dane Cook. House is interrupted when Cuddy comes in and needs to know why he’s interviewing thirty candidates for three positions and honestly I stopped paying attention here because Hugh Laurie’s shirt is unbuttoned just far enough to conjure thoughts that involved the two of us, a crackling fire, and a jar of Nutella.
