Preview Clips of House Episode "Locked In" Starring Mos Def

TV Tonight: House, Guest-Starring Mos Def

There's a pretty interesting episode of House coming up tonight, for a couple of reasons: Its guest star and its unique style. The episode, called "Locked In," stars Mos Def as a patient diagnosed with locked-in syndrome, the same affliction spotlighted in the movie The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.

The episode is filmed in a similar style to that movie, with scenes shot from the patient's perspective. Since he cannot communicate outwardly, he's an interesting challenge to diagnose — even for House. But his lack of communication also makes him an ideal sounding board for the doctors at Princeton-Plainsboro, who quickly find themselves talking to (or at?) him about their personal problems and relationship issues.

So, how do you imagine this concept will work for television? Is it a good fit for House? And which PPH relationship would you most like to see play out in front of this patient's eyes? To watch a preview, just

Yeah I was going to point out..but someone beat me to the punch...that they already did something like this on E.R. with Cynthia Nixon...but she didn't have locked in syndrome. She just had a stroke and couldn't communicate but she could still move (at one point she tried to write something on a piece of paper but it was just scribbles). Anyway a lot of it was shot from the patient's perspective.

Sounds like the episode of E.R. with Cynthia Nixon, which was pretty good. I think I'll like it.

The promos have gotten me really excited to see this episode. I don't even watch the show on a regular basis, but this one seems interesting. Plus, I'll watch anything with Mos Def in it — he's one of my favorite actors/musicians.

I'm curious to see how they structured this, without making it a complete steal of Diving Bell, and by making the conversations in front of the patient appear natural. I can't access the preview but I'm guessing they won't have all the scenes from the patient's perspective, particularly since the diagnoses always take place in the conference room. I'm definitely pysched to see Mos Def, who always turns in fantastic performances.
