LOLHouse: Season 5, Episode 2

I admit it. This week's episode, "Not Cancer", wasn't my favorite despite the fact that there's still no one on television who can rock three un-buttons on an Oxford shirt like Hugh Laurie. The case--involving the suddenly dead recipients (and one hospitalized survivor) of killer organs transplanted from the same diseased dude--was largely ignored in favor of several other plot points including the introduction of a new character, Lucas the Private Investigator* and House so openly pining for Wilson I expected him to stare out the window singing "Somewhere Out There". There was SO INSANELY MUCH going on that by the time they circled back to the case and Lisa Cuddy made her obligatory Oh House, you so crazy" appearance, they had to speed to the Big Finish, giving a rushed explanation of 'brain that isn't brain' and allowing Chase to saw the top of the patient's skull off.

Lucas the P.I. was entertaining enough, although he seems dangerously close to being House Lite: All The Attitude, None of The Limp. I've read rumors** that he's eventually going to be spun off into his own series, the Empty Nest to Princeton-Plainsboro's Golden Girls which is totally rad as long as he doesn't stomp his argyle-covered feet all over what I dig about House itself. I'm a bit surprised that they'd add another body to the cast since they doubled the number of names in the credits last season--with admittedly mixed results. Although as new characters go he's already better than the Botoxed smoothness of Sela Ward's sole facial expression from Season 2.

* I may or may not have shouted "OH I'LL INVESTIGATE YOUR PRIVATES, BABY" when he appeared on the screen for the the first time.
** No, I don't have anything better to do. Thanks so much for asking.

I am never watching House again because there is no possible way that it can live up to these LOLrecaps.

In other news, LOLfridgemagnets that I ordered just arrived in the mail. I'm considering booking the next month of work off so I can play with them.

I agree with everything said by Ben in his first paragraph. I don't have a problem with his second paragraph, it's just not for me.

How long have you been doing LolHouses? I have to read them all.

J-Money said...

ben: Let me know when the magnets come in. I'm SO coming over for a month.

imaginary reviewer: This is just the second episode of LOLHouse... SO MANY MORE TO COME.

Tony said...

Oh. Your. God.

That just made me snork hot coffee out of my nose. So, thanks.

Also, it's certainly trumped my "LOLost" idea. So, thanks again.

Echo Ben. Instead of wasting my time watching TV, I can just waste my time reading blogs.

Sweet!

LolHouse is a good title. I should've seen it coming. Haha! And yeah, PI dude is totally Howse wannabe. Gosh. It's so difficult watching TV cliches these days.

mentalTHREESIXTY said...

I don't even watch House but your LOLHouse recaps would get 4 thumbs up if I had an extra pair of hands!

Movie Maven said...

I never watched House, though I do share your opinion that Hugh Laurie can rock that semi-buttoned oxford pretty hard. Wait: not opinion...FACT. However, I do love these LOLHowses.

punchlinewalking said...

LOLHouse: The only way House is bearable. These are great!

Sandi said...

I love LOLHouse! Keep them coming. And feel free to LOL any other shows while you're at it.

R.J. Cookenboo said...

I missed that episode, thanks for the incredibly awesome recap! My husband tried to explain what happened but he didn't do nearly as good a job.

caitlin said...

cassette45 said...

LOLHouse might just be my favorite show this season. Keep 'em coming!

Heinous said...

I don't know if I'll ever have to watch house again. These. Recaps. Rule.

Jen said...

Srsly. Hilarious. And I don't watch House. Maybe I should though...would it be even better?

Mickey said...

Again- the TV was on, but I wasn't really paying attention. But that's why we have you!

This show's definitely in danger of having too many characters.

Your Ill-fitting Overcoat said...

I had to stop watching House after Season 3. I was giving myself migraines from spending every episode unsuccessfully willing House and Wilson to make out.

yllwdaisies said...

I've never watched House for fear I would get hooked on yet another tv show.

But now, I'm hooked on your lol-House recaps instead.

toughtrigger said...

LOLHouse is THE. BEST.

ms. changes pants while driving said...

Two Left Feet said...

LosingIt said...

hearts, stars and kittens for you! i can't think of a better way to end my friday.

emily said...

I thought I had an intelligent comment; but no, too busy laughing. Dear lord, woman.

theloosemoose said...

LOltastic...absolutely "teh" funniest thing on the interwebs...srsly.

Jenn said...

I don't understand it either! That has got to be the funniest thing I have read today.

Fleur said...

I don't actually watch House anymore but I still read your recaps. That's either sad or fabulous. I'm leaning towards the latter.

UrbanVox said...

lol
I thought it was going to be over because there were not going to be enough characters to save! :)
hehehehe

Chase said...

haha! It's been too long since I've had the chance to watch that show.
Thanks for catching me up with that synapse.

Elusive Butterfly said...

Srsly waz not enjoying this season but now I can't wait for my weekly LOLHouse! I think I'm in love with you. You may even be competing with Hugh Laurie for worship space in my heart.

I just wanted to let you know that I read your blog religiously (no, really, this is the third time today I've checked to see if you've updated) and I even went back and read your archives for a little bit (*cough*cough*two or three months*cough*cough). I don't comment everyday, but only because your shit is so hysterical that I can't even think of anything worthy to comment.

Basically, I adore you and am wondering if you need a stalker to up your status as Blogger Extraordinaire? If so, please feel free to send me an application...

I nominated you for the Brillante Weblog award!! Yours is one of my absolute favorite blogs on the web, and not a day goes by that I don't check it for a new update!! Hilarious :)

Amanda said...

So I usually read these LOLrecaps, and I find them pretty funny, but this weekend I went home and actually watched House (as my dad forced me to...although, I do love Hugh Laurie. I just don't love blood...) and I have to say, LOLrecaps are infinitely funnier having watched the episode. I now appreciate your full genius :)

JumpyGirl said...
