House (FOX): New. Amber Tamblyn (Joan of Arcadia) joins the cast as a brilliant medical student with a moral code that conflicts with House’s way of doing things. It makes for some entertaining TV. I especially loved Chase and Foreman trying to find out why Taub has such a problem with the new member of the team. Yet, while there are a lot of great lines, providing an above average humor quotient in the episode, the case of the week also pushes the Cuddy/House relationship into interesting territory.
