Tyler @ Pulptone: HOUSE - Be Not Afraid...

After three weeks, I make my return to reviewing for Pulptone.com!

Finally.

These past three weeks have felt like three months.  Three weeks without a single rant against Fox programming.  Without a single Good.  Without a single Meh.  Or a single Gah. Sure, I penned a few articles for television producer Maria Lokken’s website, including one about my reviewing right here at this very site, where “The Good, the Meh, and the Gah” returned, albeit briefly. But still, it wasn’t the same. Coming back to writing these reviews is like visiting that one pizza joint in that one city you just have to visit every time you’re there.  Ah, pepperoni.

OK, on with the show.

After a splendiferous conclusion to the first block of 2010 House programming (the Cuddy-centric “5 to 9”) we’re thrust back into the world of House with a pleasant enough return to formula. I say pleasant enough because the episode was a great one on two fronts, but I really couldn’t have cared less about the third – Laura Prepon’s blogging-obsessed character and her life and death struggle. It just wasn’t interesting. The formula for House always works because the antagonistic force (the illness) is always something that House has to struggle to overcome. This one worked because House did have to struggle to figure it out, but I didn’t care whether the patient lived or died. Horrible to say, but we are talking fiction, here, and that’s my job.
