January 9, 2007: Words and Deeds Season 3, Episode 11

If you've watched tonight's show but have never seen Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, then don't bother to rent the DVD. Though it did the whole lobotomy-to-erase-memories-of-love thing much better. At least in that movie, the love was mutual. Here, poor firefighter Derek ( Tory Kittles) has a heart attack whenever Amy ( Meagan Good), the object of his affection, is near. What's worse is that Derek believes her to be in love with his brother ( Jason George). Such is the curse of Broken Heart syndrome. Coupled with male menopause, it's no wonder Derek tried to strangle Cameron. I wish he'd try to strangle Tritter. That no good, self-righteous, smug cop is full of it. He gets House to apologize and then throws out the old action-versus-words speech. So House takes himself to rehab, and Tritter still does not relent. "Even your actions lie." Whatever, Tritter. Get over yourself, I'm so over you. Good thing, too, because it's all over with this guy. David Morse, we love ya, but buh-bye. Could the writers have wrapped up this lengthy arc any quicker? Cuddy perjures herself on the stand by saying she replaced House's stolen pharmacy pills with placebos and, voila, all the charges are dropped. That's it? Color me let down. Derek's false memories. Cuddy's false evidence. And yet this was a show filled with false promise. House may have gone to rehab, but he never quit the Vicodin, and Tritter wanted nothing more than revenge for his own humiliation. In the end, this journey was just a false alarm designed to address the issue of House's addiction without changing the premise of the show. Maybe in three week's time we'll forget the whole thing happened. show less

Premise: He has little patience for patients, but misanthropic Gregory House is a brilliant diagnostician who probes life-and-death medical mysteries while 'CSI'-style graphics follow each disease's progression. 'X-Men' director Bryan Singer is one of the executive producers.
