To many House, M.D. fans, season two represented the very best the series had to offer. The return of Stacy, the last woman with whom House had a long-term romantic relationship, classic episodes like “All In” and “Daddy’s Boy,” and of course the “No Reason,” the stunning conclusion to the season when House is shot point-blank by a disgruntled former patient.
The season one poll, still underway, has been a great success, with nearly 4,000 fans casting votes so far (polling continues until May 27). The Emmy-winning “Three Stories,” which many hold as not only the best House episode in eight season, but, perhaps one of primetime TV’s finest hours—ever, is way out in front, with the series pilot, “DNR,” and “Detox”—all brilliant episodes—way far behind.
So, are you ready to cast your votes for the best House, M.D. episode of season two? Good! All episodes are summarized in the Welcome to the End of the Thought Process Season Two Episode Guide, Parts One and Two, so peruse the episodes and then vote.
As with the first season poll, I’ve slightly shortened the list from the season’s 24 episodes to a more manageable number of choices. If I haven’t included your favorite, please add it to the comments section as a write-in selection. What are my favorites of season two? I’d have a hard time choosing between “Autopsy,” “Failure to Communicate”/“Need to Know,” “Skin Deep,” “All In,” and “No Reason.”
Part three of the poll will appear Monday right here on Blogcritics.
If you have an idea for an end-of-the-series poll, be sure to mention it in the comments section. To keep up to date on the latest, you can follow me on Twitter at @b_barnett. Happy voting!
