A Well-Balanced Episode
3 December 2008 | by bigtallcubsfanSee all my reviews

best twist ending ever, and one of the best episodes of the year. For the past couple of episodes, the show seemed to be trying too hard to be SERIOUS and DRAMATIC, veering away from the pranks and the dark humor that are also a part of the life of the show. This one had that awesome balance between an interesting case, the House v. Cuddy one- upmanship, and a terrific subplot involving Kutner, Talb, a medical website and blackmail. Good humor, good fun and, yes, good drama all around. I believe the show was able to accomplish this by its effective use of the supporting cast who for the first time in a while are all truly integrated into one or the other of the show's stories.
