Somebody please hand Robert Sean Leonard an Emmy right now.  ;D And I wouldn't mind seeing Lisa Edelstein get one either. Brilliant work all around! If they had to ship half the team out of town, I'm grateful beyond words that it was the youngsters. I've always liked the House/Wilson/Cuddy interplay best.

Yeah, but shows always do that. It certainly defeats the purpose of having a drama, but they ALWAYS do it - like people are blind or don't read or something.

This was a fun show. I loved Dr. Buffer, and as others have said, the exchanges and interplay between House and Wilson were great fun. Looking forward to the rest of the season.

So far, House has been my favourite returning show... the other premieres were only "meh" or mildly entertaining at best.

Loved Dr. Buffer suggesting it might be Lupis. Great way to fit the running gag in. This is by far the best (and funniest) episode I've seen of House. Good medical twist. Loved Wilson and the ransom letter stuff. The whammy bar in the box was great too.

I abso-friggin-lutely love this show. 

IMHO, the best damn non-sports show on television.  The Dead Poets guy is awesome.  I hope they bring in that ER doctor who tried to help out House, you know after the FIRST memo.. haha.  She seems to be a mix of Forman and Cameron.  I think it would work out well.

 :clap:  bravo.  excellent episode.

This may sound odd, but I think it's a legal issue.

Yes, but this happens with guest appearances and minor characters, too. There have been several instances over the years of "big surprises" in a show being ruined by the fact that the actor's name shows up in the opening credits. Biggest recent example: when Walt (or a vision thereof) returned to Lost... it wasn't a surprise when he showed up, because the credits told us 45 minutes earlier that he was going to be around somewhere.

It's just stupid. A show doesn't NEED to give credits at the beginning of the episode, because the full credits are listed at the end. The credits are just there at the beginning of movies and TV shows because of the continually growing egotism of the actors involved. Some of them demand it, so it has become standard practice... but it doesn't have to be. There are no legal requirements involved, it all has to do with contractual agreements - which could be removed, if some of the agencies and individuals involved just stopped demanding it.

For me, the best part of the episode was Wilson all disappointed that House wasn't actually taking him to lunch.  He's like a kid told he's going to Disneyland who ends up at the dentist.  House erasing Wilson's telenovela was hilarious too.  Very good episode, can't wait until next week.

I think the production companies are doing that due to the fact the TV channels squish the end credits to the point of illegibility so they can tell us about whatever shite is comming up after the show we've been enjoying and might want to know who to thank.

The end credits squishing thing annoys me a little ;D

Great episode, I liked Cameron Redux and that was a lovely guitar. Next weeks episode looks great, I like to see the earnest Asian Doctor from Three Stories included in the duckling idol audition.

Remember how in Star Trek III, they didn't list Leonard Nimoy's name in the opening credits?  That was a clever bit of business.  And didn't Joss Whedon have a habit of messing with the opening credits on his shows to mess with people?
