As big a fan of the House MD show I am, let me start off with the disclaimer that I consider this to be one of the worst ever episodes of House MD to come on air. EVER! And that is not just because of the sucky medical mystery, but also because of the very ordinary levels of drama, poor acting and overall, a not … Continue reading House MD 8×02: Transplant
So, like I said in my last post, House is back, and with a bang. The new season starts off on a bleak note with House serving out the last few days in his 8 month old sentence, and being on the verge of getting paroled. After the rather weird season finale for season 7, I think this is more like the House MD show … Continue reading House MD 8×01: Twenty Vicodin
While I was away enjoying my well earned break from civilization, House MD’s season 8 has premiered. And tonight, they will be showing the second episode too! So, remember what happened at the end of last season? House drove into Lisa Cuddy’s house and fled the country to go to some tropical island. And what do you do for such an act? Go to prison: … Continue reading House MD: You Can’t Keep Him Away!
Once you have read the plot, you will understand what I am going to deal with in this post. The key to understanding how House reached a diagnosis of SSPE in the adopted kid was in a funny encounter he had in the clinic. A yummy mummy had brought in her kid who she was not vaccinating as she believed that it was a form … Continue reading House M.D. 1.02: Denialism
The next episode happens to be one of my favorites because this is one of the few cases where House’s flights of diagnostic fancy is actually comprehensible to my mere intelligence. Also, there is this one thing I have to ask: in diagnosing SSPE, can we take a trans-pupillary retinal biopsy by poking in through the eye? My normal medical curriculum never taught me anything … Continue reading House M.D. Plot: 1.02 Paternity
Since I started writing this series anayzing House MD episodes blow by blow, I have received a few (considering the really few readers this blog has anyways, the definition of “a few” remains open to interpretation) requests to add some more details about the plots themselves so that people do not have to wrack their brains to remind themselves what the whole deal was. I … Continue reading House M.D. 1.01: Pilot/Everybody Lies: Plot
This is the first post in the new series on the blog where I analyze House MD episodes based on the content and scientific interpretation of the same. It is going to be a difficult ride trying to analyze a crazy medical drama in true scientific light, but then again, who said that the things worth doing in life were ever easy? In this post … Continue reading House MD 1.01: Dignity in Death
