House M.D. 5.13 Big Baby (2009)

Some woman has some medical condition that no-one can solve but House. Foreman has an ethical dilemma regarding Thirteen. Cuddy is failing to bond with her baby and Cameron has to but heads with House for the first time as his boss.

5/10

We’re most definitely in the mid-season lull typical of most American shows. It’s not surprising since they run for so long, but despite the muddled and extremely unconvincing medical plot and poorly written dramatic plots (Cuddy’s inability to bond with her baby and Thirteen and Foreman’s – shudder – relationship; though it’s nice to see Thirteen looking happy), House still has enough moments of acerbic fun to stick with it. However, it is probably time to give him a sabbatical.
