TV Geek Out 54: House, "Last Resort"

House gets a visit from character actor extraordinaire Zeljko Ivanek in Last Resort, but unfortunately for the patients and doctors at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital, he greets them with the barrel of a gun. As a character so desperate to get a diagnosis for his mysterious ailment that he's willing to threaten the lives of others, Ivanek brings a heightened level of tension to a series whose focus is already life-or-death situations. But the episode's most shocking twist turns out to be a product of House's unethical, reckless lust for answers rather than anything their gun-wielding captor does. The TV Geek Out geeks discover that Perry is a sucker for a good hostage-crisis drama, question whether Dr. House has sunk to his lowest moral point yet, and marvel at the "pasty genius" of Zeljko Ivanek.

Check it out here.
