The new doc angle is great.  Give House a love interest.

I'm just happy if there's lots of Cuddy cleavage in the episode.  I have such a powerful crush on her.

But, yes, great episode.  Now that they've shaken the Tritter arc, they can get back to what House does best.  Run intestines through his hands and be wrong about his guess.

There's so many things about House that are just so silly... I love it.  There's no way in the world that they would ever go to someone's house and search it without permission.  The fact that's it's part of each episode's formula is almost some sort of self-mockery.

It's also funny that you mentioned Cuddy's breasts because both House and the new doc seem to love them.  I also liked it when House picks a fight with the gypsies... aaahaha.  He's such a dick.

Also, are the old Sherlock Holmes available for rent?  My buddy at Tower used to have a bunch with Jeremy Brett I think his name was... they were incredible.

The old Sherlock Holmes are books.  Try the library.  It's free.

Written by a man who doesn't know the glory that is Jeremy Brett.  He's a better Holmes than Holmes was.  Queue them up without delay:

They carried on, but ACD's later stories were crap, and Brett got really sick (dying shortly after completing the series), so Casebook of and Memoirs of are rough all around.

Brett is just mind-blowing in the role.  You'll have trouble going back to the books, in fact.  He captures the pure essence of Holmes with an eerie, powerful quality.

Absolutely.  I've read the books and while they're good, somehow Brett manages to bring Holmes's dickish genius to life in a way that doesn't really come through in the books.  You can tell when you watch him that he's the biggest Holmes fan who ever lived.  My buddy at Tower had all of the Holmes episodes on VHS and we used to watch them all the time.  I think it's probably one of the reasons I enjoy House so much because the parallels are amazing.

Dutifully queued.  I recognize the covers; I loved that but some eps scared me as a child -- especially the one where he gets drugged out from the powder burning over the lamp.

That was a nice thing about the Brett Holmes, fajwat... They didn't pull their punches.  He was a manic depressive drugged out freak who could barely tolerate people.

I wish there could somehow be a TV show with Jeremy Brett's Holmes, House and Number 6 all doing stuff together and fighting huge monsters or something...

Uh-oh!  Now I have to go have a Prisoner marathon.

I went to the Village when I was in Wales.  It's this big weird-ass hotel, but you can go to 6's cottage, and the stone boat, and that low-tide beach, and walk around on the paths with all the creepy busts.  Amazing day.

The trip was in 95, so they're film and packed away in a box somewhere.  But, yes, I have photos.  Might be in storage... I'll look around.

It's a must see place...

Do people live there or is it like a resort of some kind?  Is the decor different than it was on the show?

Looks like it's more of a resort town.
