Season 3, Episode 7: "Son of Coma Guy"

I think this is the first episode this season that I have really and truly loved. I really enjoyed this episode, and I thought it was really well-done.

Guest stars: I've already told you the David Morse history (and that said, I still want to murder his character with an icepick, no matter how much I like the actor). But John Larroquette really needs no introduction. He's got a huge list of credits, including Night Court, The John Larroquette Show, and a great turn on The West Wing as White House counsel Lionel Tribbey, where he threatened to beat someone with a cricket bat. Good stuff.

He's also very, very good here. I was all "Oh, that should be good but I don't know," but he plays well off Hugh Laurie, two dry personalities that work together. The best part of this episode, for me, though, is the interaction between Hugh Laurie and Robert Sean Leonard. And the fact that Robert Sean Leonard gets some much deserved screen time. He really is an underrated actor, and the complexities of the House/Wilson friendship are getting truly interesting this season (and next episode, if you saw the Really, it's good to see more of a guy who only has a couple of scenes an episode.

But I have one complaint. This has to be the lamest episode title, ever. That, or next week's episode title. Did someone in the writer's room just run out of title ideas?
