I haven’t been a big fan of House recently, and was especially harsh on the show during Season 4 when the hunt for new interns dragged on and on and on. I do have to say, however, that the S4 two-part finale was some of the best television I’ve ever seen. I’ve been re-watching House’s Head and Wilson’s Heart on my TiVo, and am still amazed at the amount of emotion the two eps can generate — even though I know exactly what’s coming.
I didn’t realize how much I liked Amber until she was on her deathbed. I didn’t realize how much Wilson loved Amber until he was there to comfort her as she passed. I didn’t realize how much House cared for Wilson until he allowed a hole to be drilled into his head in an effort to save Amber. And I didn’t realize how awesome Lisa Edelstein’s 42-year-old body was until I saw her dancing in sexy lingerie in House’s dream. Wow!
The show has definitely improved in recent weeks, but still… I can’t help but think back to seasons 1 and 2 where this was must-see TV for me. I want that old dynamic back!
