I’m devastated like I’m sure many of you are, but I think season 7’s “Bombshells”, while not a typical House episode AT ALL, was amazingly written and a very cool chance for everyone involved in House MD to branch out a little bit. People are extremely mixed about this episode, some love it and some hate it and a great majority of that has to do with the very eloquent dream sequences that the show decided to explore. This article is going to attempt to break down each dream sequence and get at the message the writers were intending with each dream.
Before you assume anything, I recommend you read the article first.
Lately, there has been a shift of opinion about Cuddy's character especially after the introduction of the Lucas arc. People have been claiming the writers are writing her too OOC, that they are displaying her for everyone to hate causing no sympathy for her character. They are calling her all kind of names, bitch, whore, tart, slapper and a blind idiot. The truth is (as I hope it is), the fandom are loathing Cuddy not because she chose Lucas over House and that she's treating him simply as another employee in a cruel mannner,...
“If you want to change your life, do something, don’t believe your rationalizations, lock yourself up, and pretend you’re happy.”
A very profound statement laced with irony. I had started writing this article as a review on this week’s House episode, “The Itch” but upon writing it I stumbled upon something I much preferred to write about. Now I realize this whole thought pattern I have here might be me reading far too much into a TV show, or maybe my very in-depth study of Dubliners (James Joyce) in English class right now, that deals with the theme of paralysis, might be to blame...

Ezra Powell: I don't regret what I did. Informed consent - patient rights - holds back research. [Cameron, viciously and quickly, slices a piece of skin off Powell's arm.

"House M.D.: Three Stories (#1.21)" (2005) Dr. Gregory House: I choose to believe that the white light people sometimes see, visions this patient saw, they're all just chemical reactions that take place when the brain shuts down Dr. Eric Foreman: You choose to believe that? Dr. Gregory House: There's no conclusive science. My choice has no practical relevance to my life, I choose the outcome I find more comforting Dr. Cameron: You find it more comforting to believe that this is it? Dr. Gregory House: I find it more comforting to believe that all this isn't simply a test.
I was bored earlier and made up this House MD personality quiz...not sure how good it is, but I hope you enjoy it! (Answer key at bottom)

Wilson hurried into the room, closing the door carefully behind him before moving swiftly around the gurney to face his friend. Though House was moaning and writhing on the narrow bed, as if desperately struggling to escape some unseen foe, his eyes were closed, and he might have appeared to be asleep and battling a nightmare, had Wilson not known better.
I wrote this in the vain hope that my friends would want to do another film but to no avail. So I decided to post it on Fanpop. Hope you guys like it.
