A VERY HAROLD AND KUMAR CHRISTMAS
This is a strong comedy, unfortunately, like The Hangover Part II, it weakens itself as being apart of a very strong franchise. It is hard to believe that neither John Cho, Kal Penn, or Neil Patrick Harris have been able to explode as silver screen stars. The film features some hilarious running jokes and will please fans of the series. However, the film drags on in places and the usually hilarious NPH appearance (though they do poke fun of his personal life in a great way) is a little too short as he barely factors into the film’s plot like he did in the other two films and is regulated to more an “extend cameo” role.

Needless to say I saw this sober (I don’t smoke) and it would probably be much funnier under the influence unlike the other films, which were hilarious even if you were sober. Oh yeah, the 3D and Christmas settings were un-needed but I believe that’s part of the joke. All in all, this is one of the more solid comedies I’ve seen all year even if it’s weaker then Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle and Harold & Kumar Escape Guantanamo Bay.

House on FOX.

Truth be told, I usually Tivo House and watch it later in the night (or the following weekend), but with Chuck having aired its season (hopefully just season) finale, I have my 8 o’clock hour free.  This week continues House’s spiral into… insanity? I’m not sure, but he continues to be haunted by visions of Amber, his best friends dead girlfriend. A death that House was responsible for.  In addition to that, House and his team are dealing with the case of a ballerina whose lungs collapse and her skin falls off. Jamie Tisdale and Anne Dudek guest star.

House on FOX.

An all new episode of my of my favorite shows on TV, the Fox medical drama House starring Hugh Laurie, is on tonight at 8pm. One of the best aspects of the series is that it focuses on the puzzle of the illnesses and the trial and error to find out how to save the patients. Unlike other melodramatic medical dramas, we haven’t even learned the full names of most of the doctors let alone be over saturated in their lives. This makes it all the more effective when we finally do learn of just what is going on outside of the hospital.

Tonight’s episode is titled “Painless”, and the team is working on the case of a man who suffers from a chronic and excruciating pain, much like our title character. Along with that we have advancements on both the Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) baby storyline and Foreman (Omar Epps) and Thirteen’s (Olivia Wilde) Huntington’s disease drug trial.

Check out these new stills from “Painless” (click to enlarge).

The network’s official description of tonight’s episode: “A troubled teen collapses during her high-school Christmas program; Foreman and Thirteen learn more about each other as they work together on the Huntington’s disease drug trial; House gives and receives holiday gifts, leading to team speculation; and Cuddy receives a gift as well.”
