Anyone see “House” this week?
So there I was, settling in to watch my second favorite TV show–House–the other night. It starts out with an old fashioned 18th century ship in a storm on the sea. What? This isn’t Princeton, New Jersey! Cut to the inside of the hull, where overcrowded slaves are in chains moaning and groaning and getting seasick. (The Black Rock, anyone?) The evil captain comes down and drags one of them above to be thrown overboard, as he frantically says good-bye to his son. After this, a flash of light and a “whooshing” sound bring the scene to a calm sea in 2010 where a family is vacationing on their cabin cruiser (which is very reminiscent of Desmond’s and Penny’s boat, “Our Mutual Friend.”) Add this to the recent addition of Cynthia Watros to the cast of House, and I wondered if this episode wasn’t a nod to Lost. So did anyone else catch it?
