It's a cop-out.
That being said, House is rockin' my world with this story.
(The reason that I'm watching TV in the first place actually has merit. Really.)
First of all, Charles S. Dutton is one of my favorite actors of all time. He used to have a TV show on Fox many many years ago, and they were the first ones to do a show live in real-time since the days of the image orthicon and kinescope. That takes both some righteous balls and some serious chops, and it got my attention.
Then of course, there's Hugh Laurie.
Gotta work now.
