Join Blogcritics House, M.D. expert Barbara Barnett for a LiveChat following Monday night's new episode "Better Half"

Live Chat: House, M.D. – Monday, January 23 at 9:00 PM ET

It’s great to have House, M.D. back on the air after such a long hiatus. It will be wonderful to see the cranky doc (Hugh Laurie) and the rest of the gang back in Princeton-Plainsboro working their diagnostic derring-do. Remember, House is now on at a new time: 8:00 p.m. ET on FOX, so make sure you don’t miss Monday’s episode by tuning in an hour late!

In honor of the show’s return to new episodes, Blogcritics is hosting a Live Chat following the East Coast airing. All you have to do is stop by right here after the show airs Monday night and join in on the conversation. It’s possible that we may be joined by a special guest, so you don’t want to miss a minute!

In “Better Half” an Alzheimer’s patient begins to exhibit unusual symptoms that lead them to explore the patient’s marital situation. The case raises some interesting moral issues about the nature of relationships in the face of serious illness, causing conflict between Chase (Jesse Spencer) and Adams (Odette Annable). The episode also provides for some interesting moments between House (Laurie) and Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard), according to writer Kath Lingenfelter, with whom I spoke earlier this week.

Here’s a little tease of, so close your eyes, spoilerphobes!
