Review - House Season 7 Episode 5 Unplanned Parenthood

While watching House and Wilson scramble to deal with the baby before Cuddy returns, I was consciously thinking that the scene is supposed to be funny in an amusing way and that somewhere in America someone is probably his/her ass off. But I sat there annoyed with how stupid everything had gotten. Remember when House could be a competent, witty doctor without bumbling around like a fool?

In the middle of all this, there is a patient who'd just given birth. After relatively few steps, the mother sacrifices herself for the baby. And her other daughter is a nuisance who is there primarily for the melodramatic ending where she realizes her mom allowed herself to die.

Then there's the hiring of a female doctor. Needless to say, it doesn't end well because House is playing games, but it also makes us dislike the other characters even more. I guess we can't expect more House these days.

Score: 8.2/10
