Ok Mr. Laurie, here's your Emmy.
The two-hour season premiere for House was a refreshing step outside of what was getting to be a stale template for the series. Save for a brief call to Wilson, this was a lot of heavy lifting from Hugh Laurie as House. Andre Braugher was great as Dr. Nolan (why isn't this man on television more?) and Franka Potente slummed in the role of token love interest Lydia.
A lot more music than other House episodes, and none of the usual sentimental adult alternative wallpaper they usually choose. In fact, the most boring song was the not-at-all boring "Seven Day Mile" by The Frames, which closed out the episode, signaling how far House has gone (and still needs to go).
