    Thought I'd get the thread rolling. House is in prison awaiting parole for running his car into Cuddy's house.

    None of the supporting cast from last season appear in this ep but the cast in this ep is more than up to the task.

    Be prepared for tons of prison life cliches here but once you get past them it's an entertaining season premiere.

    I watched this with some worry as how to keep House, well, as House. I think they did it. Oh the prison was cliche and I don't know how realistic an atmosphere...it is tv after all. Just think back and this was very similiar to when they had House in the insane asylum. He bucked the system and got away with it.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he tried to get prison lady doctor a job at his hospital. Maybe not on his team, but maybe.

    I loved how he helped the cricket.

    Surprisingly entertaining episode. Perhaps my standards were low since we had just completed watching the abominably awful episode of Terra Nova that preceded it.

    No real surprises in the episode - House even got to diagnose Lupus! Only amyloidosis was missing - but yet still enjoyable in "House being House" sort of way.

    He should've realized -- it's never lupus.

    This is a recurring theme on Fox TV shows, no? Sarah Wayne Callies, who played Sara Tancredi on "Prison Break," *was* a model before becoming an actress. . . .

    They should of left him in prison, and get rid of the old cast.
    This was one of the better episodes in a looooong time.

    Change the name of the show to "The Big House"

    Odette Yustman looks like she could be Hailee Steinfeld's (True Grit) older sister.

    Nice spoiler in the thread title. Couldn't you have included the official episode name instead? That's just bizarre.

    My "spoiler" is revealed in the first 5 minutes of the ep as House faces the parole board.

    That somehow doesn't make it a spoiler for people who haven't watched the episode yet?

    Actually, it was more like the first five seconds, half a minute tops, even if you aren't being particularly observant.

    Nuts. I watched the ep and can't imagine I would have been better able to appreciate it had I known he was in prison before the ep started. Last year ended with him going wacko, driving his car into Cutty's living room. Did you expect this season to open with him in the same old hospital setting?

    Pretty good episode...pretty unrealistic but I don't set the bar too high for this kind of show.

    Looking forward to watching the rest of the season.
