    House seems a little off when it returns for its fifth season. My diagnosis: A chemistry imbalance.

    The best medical TV series out there. If you love sarcasm, this is for you.

    Even though we're in the 5th Season, the ingredients of humor, drama and suspense are still there.

Part of the blameIt starts and finishes strong, but that doesn't feel like enough to make up for this season's unforgivably bad second act. Part of the blame for this falls upon a forced plot piece. Part of it is a bit more complicated. The quality of the patients of the week has been in decline since season 3, but it was forgivable thanks to the writers handing us interesting plot pieces (the cop in season 3, the search for a new team in season 4) and the fact that characters were still very well done.

My advice: jump ship before you even get here. Full Review »
