TV Show – Dr. House | House M.D. XII

Even though I’m almost at the end of the seventh season, today’s post will be relatively short compared to the others; I am incredibly tired! (Don’t worry, it’s not from watching Dr. House, it was just a very long day.)


(YES, I miss Thirteen a lot!)

Season seven is a bit like a prelude because it prepares us for a spectacular end to the season (and the whole show!). But the things House does in this season can no longer be summed up as “he’s a great doctor, just unfortunately a jerk.” Just the way he puts Masters through the wringer when it comes to Cuddy’s mother is pretty intense, not to mention the fact that he tricked her with the coma patient. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg; there are a lot of things on that “that’s not okay at all” list.

Cuddy has now found out that he’s back on Vicodin, broke up with him, and even though from a distance it looks like House is living it up, he’s actually in free fall! Apparently, there are no limits anymore. Chase, Taub, and Masters are in his hotel room like Huey, Dewey, and Louie, waiting for him to look at X-rays while the prostitute is hiding under the covers next to him. You don’t even want to imagine what drugs or Vicodin he’s taken.

I want to highlight two things in particular:

I really like Masters’ style of dressing! She’s always smartly dressed, it rarely seems too overdone, yet she still stands out from the crowd. I don’t know if this can be attributed to the actress or the team behind the camera, but they did a really good job here.

Episode 15 of season 7 is an absolutely wild ride! I love it when the team is just told to portray dreams about abandonment fears however they creatively feel like doing it. Then it turns out great and is really genius. Comedy, musical, zombies, and sitcom, a dream (pun not intended)!

Tomorrow (Sunday) I’ll continue watching, I’ll just finish the episode and then fall into bed. Then there’s still the eighth season, and we’ve made it. This was a really smooth rewatch, and writing about it was really fun. But I also think that afterwards I’ll watch a few episodes of other series for a bit instead of another 8-season behemoth like Dr. House; that really messes with your head!
