Over the past couple of weeks, we've seen incompetent bosses, self-absorbed medical residents, sex-crazed high schoolers, and even some devil's bounty hunters return to the small screen. But if there's one character whose return I've been anticipating most eagerly, it's the crankypants Dr. House. Tonight, House returns — now in its new Monday night slot — to deliver his standard dose of bitter sarcasm.
House went through a pretty radical transformation in the Fall, so just to make sure we're all on the same page, here's a quick rundown of what's going on. House's old team is no more; they're all still at PPH, but only Foreman is working directly with House. The new team consists of plastic surgeon Taub, bumbling fool Kutner, and mysterious Thirteen. The runner-up for making the team was Amber, aka Cutthroat B*tch, who managed to get the better of House anyway by dating Wilson. When we last left things, House was trying to figure out whether Amber was looking for romance, a job, or both.
And that's where things pick up tonight, with House and Amber each vying for a little bit of Wilson's time. The three of them have some of the best chemistry on the show right now, so I'm eager to see them all sharing the screen again. Meanwhile, the patient of the week is a guy House thinks is just too nice for his own good, which should be fun; after all, is there a personality trait House likes less than niceness? To check out a couple of clips from the episode, just read more.
