LOL House: Season 5, Episode 3

Finally, House. Tuesday's episode was my favorite of the season so far and not just because the Patient of the Week was Breckin Meyer, who I've had a crush on since he played Travis Birkenstock in Clueless, back when he and I had similar limp one-length hairstyles and an all-out devotion to flannel. Breckin plays Brandon, a shitty painter whose paintings get even shittier when his vision goes wonky and he starts to see the world in tangled swirls, which means he either has a brain tumor or he's been at a Widespread Panic concert. Sadly, his art becomes unsuitable for even the least selective hotel lobbies.

The ep was more centered around the case for a change and not spread out among the 49 people currently in the cast, although there were a couple of subplots involving Taub's potentially cheating wife and House's new BFF the Private Investigator, who still seems to serve zero purpose, save for having the second-best beard scruff in the Tuesday 8:00 timeslot. He is attractive enough for me to wonder where they're going to take his character and I'd be totally cool if one plot twist dropped him into my living room without any pants.

Noticeably absent this week was any mention of Dr. Wilson or of 13 insisting that even though she has Huntington's Disease, she can (Huntington's Disease) still do (Huntington's Disease) her job (Huntington's Disease) as well as ever.

Oh look, here's some LOLHouse.

Episode 3: "Adverse Events"

I LIKE House, but I LOVE LOLHouse even more. Totally on the same wavelength re: L&O multiple drug trials AND the Garfield hairball connection.

Heinous said...

This is the highlight of my televsion viewing week. I love the 'botchin ur initial diagnosis' line.

Andrea N said...

I live for LOLHouse...thanks for not making me wait until Friday!!

The Imaginary Reviewer said...

Fantastic! Absolutely fantastic! I am also cackling over the 'Botching...' line. Brilliant.

But can we also not forget Mr. Meyer's role in the excellent film The Craft?

Belle said...

I really did LOL. Then I tried to muffle the LOL, so I didn't look so crazy laughing in my office by myself, but that made me look even more strange. It's that funny.

*~*Lis*~* said...

much better than the actual show as always!

punchlinewalking said...

"Breast size- 42 Long" made me lose my shit.

emily said...

I just scared the hell out of my dog.

kleph said...

Love Tractor > Widespread Panic

SA said...

This is one of my favorite features. And that was one of the worst photoshops I have EVER seen.

I'm loving the PI. We need more of him, not just a few episodes.

Two Left Feet said...

as always, love it.

theloosemoose said...

I's srsly amused. i can has LOLHouse every week?

paisana said...

These are hilarious. I'm directing traffic your way.

Mr. McBastard said...

Didn't they finally give 13 a last name? Or am I mistaken?

Tamsyn said...

Oh my goodness, you are killing me :) I read your blog before we get each episode here in Australia.... so when I watch it with my husband I keep adding in your lol house comments and ruining it for him. I think you are hilarious!

J-Money said...

jb: Obviously we should be best friends.

heinous: Well...thanks. I do what I can.

andrea n: I couldn't wait until Friday either!

the imaginary reviewer: I've only seen The Craft once and I immediately got a stomach virus. Until I'm sure the two weren't related, I'm not watching it again.

belle: Embrace your LOLs!

lis: C'mon, let's not go that far...

punchline walking: Not literally, I hope. Unless you had some carpet cleaner nearby.

emily: And my dog too.

kleph: Grateful Dead > Love Tractor

sa: I think we should volunteer to write the PI spinoff show.

two left feet: Please, send this around your workplace and wreck the productivity of your coworkers. I would like that to be my enduring legacy.

theloosemoose: Of course u cans. Xcept next week cause House iz bein preempted.

paisana: Muchas gracias, senorita.

mr. mcbastard: Yes, her "real" name is Rema Hadley. But I like 13 better, yo.

Felicia said...

Wait, do you make these up yourself? Because I hate lolstuff, and I don't watch House, but I think these are hilarious! I knew you were funny, but girl, these are genius!

emmysuh said...

lolHouse means it doesn't even matter that I can't watch actual House on Tuesday nights. And since I feel about SVU/Elliot Stabler the way you do about House, I appreciate the drug trial comment.

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

I think from now on, I'll just come here for the LOL recap, rather than watch the stupid show. This is far more genius that Kumar could ever be!!

Bogart in P Towne said...

I don't even watch the show, but I am now hooked.

saratogajean said...

A Lil' Irish Lass said...

Holy shit. I almost pissed myself these were so funny.

U gotz urself a new reeder.

(Okay, I suck at these, so I'll just leave it to the master.)

Sandi said...

I've been directing my readers (reader) to your LOLHouse.

You are hilarious!

Elusive Butterfly said...

House is preempted next week?! NOOOO! What will I do without LOLHouse? :(

dmb5_libra said...

am cackling over here in my office, if people were unsure earlier whether i was being productive or not, i've clearly answered their question

heidi said...

LOLhouse is offically better than House.

Mommy2lilgems said...

This is hilarious! I LOVE House, it's my favorite show, but LOLHouse is funny too-just as long as you're not making fun of the real HOuse...right???

Suzanne said...

I don't watch much tv, though I liked House the couple of times I saw it. That said, I'm not watching again-LOL house is sooooo much better!

Underpaid Princess sent me, and she was right. You are hilarious!

Jaywalker said...

I iz in my hows snortin tee out my noze.

Thank you thank you thank you for LOL House. Simply the best thing ever.

stealthnerd said...

I'm torn b/w which I love more--actual House or LOLHouse.

Mickey said...

Connecting Garfield with the hairball: brilliant.

Okay, not really brilliant. Pretty slick, maybe.

Keep up the good work.

Andy said...

I watched that Garfield movie, but only for Jennifer Love Hewitt. Which reminds me that the 10th anniversary edition of "Can't Hardly Wait" is out.
I feel like Brecken is in that, but it's every other "That guy" dude from that era- Seth Green, etc. What a good movie. I'm a nerd.

Chris said...

I was hoping you'd have one of the super swollen Breckin.

Great job as always

Eric (Extra P.) said...

You know the only long-running TV show that can beat the House "initial diagnosis" meme? Those bumbling madcaps on Law & Order, who tend to arrest 2 to 6 innocent people per episode.

Westenra said...

you just made my day.

Ginger said...

OMG! LOLHouse!
