Tyler @ Pulptone: HOUSE - Egyptian Parasites & Furniture. Yawn.

by Tyler Weaver.  Follow me on Twitter.

I’m worried.
This episode of House was quite good, but it offered little to nothing in the character development department. It felt as though I’ve seen it all before. Perhaps the formula’s getting old again? House must save patient. House and Wilson hijinks. One of the team has a relationship problem. Rinse. Wash. Repeat. That’s it.
Oops. I hope we don’t start seeing the trend of patients dying when the formula gets stale, as the puppet masters behind the writer’s table have been so fond of doing.

This week, a teenage girl starts foaming at the mouth and going all mystery disease at the planetarium (a word I can never say without the South Park inflection). In the House/Wilson cohabitation subplot, House forces Wilson to buy furniture for the apartment, which of course gives Cuddy her single scene as Wilson’s “sounding board.” And in the “team has love problems” storyline, Taub and his wife are having marital problems, which then gives House the eureka moment to solve the teenage girl’s mystery illness (her boyfriend’s dad did the horizontal mambo with her, after coming back from Egypt with a bad-ass parasite, the Guerrero of Egyptian parasites, if you will).
