Pro-life...anti-plot
21 April 2011 | by The_Real_CelsusSee all my reviews

I am fine with profile stuff...but this episode is not true to any characters, there is no risk, it is all roses. Upto this point (from Season 1 to 3) this is nearly the most cliché' and least well written...with the exclusion of the poor way they did the evil cop...oh and every time House mentions things being "evil" when he does not believe in "evil". I don't want to have to throw spoilers in, so let me just say this, if you are pro-life, but also pro-story arc you will not like this episode, if you are pro-life and hope for House to find pro-life, you will like this episode, if you are pro-choice you will hate this episode. It is a bit of the old shark jumping moment (not in the term of the series, but in the term of the episode...since you can do a single shark jump episode).
