'House' helps doctor solve medical mystery

If you’re unlucky enough to be stricken with a rare medical condition, you’d better hope your doctor watches the right television show.

That was the lesson for one German man with severe heart failure and a puzzling mix of symptoms, including fever, blindness, deafness, and enlarged lymph nodes, which stumped doctors for months.

The 55-year-old man was diagnosed only when he was referred to Dr. Juergen Schaefer, a fan of the U.S. television medical drama House.

“After five minutes, I knew what was wrong,” said Schaefer, who works at the Center for Undiagnosed Diseases in Marburg, north of Frankfurt.

'House' series finale recap: 'Everybody Dies'...did House?

The big question going into tonight’s series finale of House was whether or not Dr. Gregory House would die.

Between the rumored returns (Kal Penn, Amber Tamblyn, etc.) and the scary-sounding title of the last episode, spoiler-loving folk knew something afoot. Would House have a pre-death trip through his history? Would everyone meet up for a funeral? Would all of House’s friends gather in a big intervention? At several points during the show’s last episode, I thought I had it all figured out, but true to House form, it had me guessing until the very end. Ultimately, the answer was: READ FULL STORY

'House' series finale: Should House die? [Poll!]

Chances are, someone is going to die tonight on House.

Unless you’re a spoiler-phobe who has been avoiding the interwebs for the last month and a half, you’ve probably seen that a bunch of characters from House seasons past are returning in tonight’s finale. Jennifer Morrison, Amber Tamblyn and Kal Penn are among those returning. Penn’s rumored appearance, specifically, launched fans into a speculation frenzy because Kutner is, well, dead. And the consensus is that someone will bite it in tonight’s episode.

The obvious choice — should there be a casualty at all — is cancer-stricken Wilson, who has five months to live — one month less than the time that House stands to spend in jail for vandalizing the hospital last week. But when was the last time House writers took the obvious route?

'House' recap: Is House going [spoiler]?!

In what has become a signature move in the last few episodes, House delivered a heck of a curveball at the end of tonight’s episode. And going into its series finale (next week!) I’m not exactly sure how House is going to work his way out of this one.

Let’s dig into this week’s episode:

We picked up by learning the outcome of the tests Wilson took in last week’s episode: They were not good. “I’m not doing any more chemo,” Wilson declared early on in the episode. He’d shot for a cure, a miracle, he said, but missed by a mile. So he was done. But House was determined not to let him just give up, and the rest of the episode played out like a fun tango between Wilson and House, in which House tried to convince Wilson his life was worth fighting for. After all, House told him, he’d helped so many others do the same.

House even tried to make his point by inviting Wilson’s past patients to the hospital for a big, dramatic scene. Of course, this being House and House, there was a catch: None of the people House presented to Wilson were actual former patients. Now, believe me, the moment (while it lasted) was beautiful. And I was blubbering like an idiot. Then when the truth was revealed, I felt like a fool. I’ll add the moment to the long, wonderful list of other times I, like Wilson, have been duped by Gregory House. READ FULL STORY
