As this awesome TV show comes to an end, it’s cool to remember some of the old patients and thus old episodes House had.
But I suppose these are just the famous patients that were in the show and not the best episodes. As I recall, “All In” was a really good episode, as well as the “Last Resort” episode that’s already mentioned in the previous link. I guess, for me, what counts as a better episode is whether or not the episode has a good story that revolves mainly around a diagnostic with lots of medical terms flying around.
So maybe “intriguing” would be a suitable adjective for these episodes. Sure, fun and games and jokes are also an important part of every House episode – but they don’t make an episode as memorable as all the mind-boggling differential diagnoses scenes that a single episode offers.
