We here at App’s Eye View are loving Season 7 of House. The medical stories have been compelling (if not always factually on target, as some medically knowledgeable folks have informed us). The House/Cuddy affair is being handled remarkably well, taking their snark and banter to a whole new level. And as for the InHouse app, it is following suit.
Here is the latest dish on the app’s “Small Sacrifices” update.
The Dark Room: Here we find some wonderful, yet somewhat disturbing photos of the opening teaser, which is a crucifixion scene. The crew and a cute brown and white dog mill around the crucifix on the ground. Then Kuno Becker, who plays Patient of the Week, Ramon, is photographed lying on the cross, after which he chats away with Greg Yaitanes, the episode’s director. Take it as a solid reminder that this is indeed Hollywood, folks, where nothing is ever as it seems. More down-to-earth are the photos of the wedding scene preparation. That lovely bubbly liquid sparkling in the tower of champagne glasses is really ginger ale, poured into the glasses through a hose. How glamorous is that? There is an actual DJ in the scene, playing records (remember those?). Robert Sean Leonard and Cynthia Watros are filmed, watched over by the crew as their characters hurtle toward the inevitable breakup scene. And, look! There’s House in the background watching it all come down. The Dark Room leaves us with a glimpse of Hugh Laurie, waiting patiently for Greg Yaitanes to give him his cue.
Those InHouse folks are full of surprises, aren’t they? The Media Room’s content has absolutely nothing to do with the “Small Sacrifices” episode. Were we disappointed? No, because instead we get a look at Candice Bergen as Cuddy’s mom. The scene is from the next episode, which is due to air on January 17th. The two greatest things about this clip are the look on House’s face when he learns who he’s been examining in the clinic and the second, even more fantastic thing, is that we actually get to hear Candice Bergen say “schtupping”. Go. Watch. NOW!
