GUIDE: 1x03 Occam's Razor

1x03 - OCCAM'S RAZOR
Writer: David Shore
Director: Bryan Singer
Original Airdate: Nov. 30, 2004

A college student collapses after rowdy sex with his girlfriend. While House and his team attempt to determine the cause, the student's condition continues to deteriorate and his symptoms multiply complicating the diagnosis.

Transcript & CapsCollapse )

Just a quick mod note: We've pretty much conditioned everyone to expect the guide and then the picspam immediately following. I may start putting up the guides in advance. So consider this my disclaimer about potentially becoming a tease!

PRE-FLAIL PICSPAM: 4X13

I was trying to make ellixian do this, because she is far more creative with her flailing than I, but, well... with the price of gas so high these days, we really need to split our flailing between the two of us! ;)

THIS IS PRE-EPISODE (ANTICIPATORY) FLAILING!

There are two two House/Cuddy scenes available on the Fox website (and YouTube, and Facebook) from this Monday's episode. And isn't it our duty and responsibility to take these scenes out of context and pick them apart and analyze ever millisecond of them?

So, obviously, spoilers ahoy! There are transcripts and caps, as usual. Surely there will be some speculation in comments, so this is your warning!

I. House's Performance ReviewCollapse )

II. Cuddy's Performance ReviewCollapse )

I also planned on getting it done, say, when the clips first surfaced. It's just so unlike me to get things going later than anticipated! SO, let this also serve as a general pre-show post of flail.

Discussion: Favorite Moments

Look! We're not dead! ellixian and I are incredibly sorry for slacking on the community as of late. We've both been swamped, but hopefully with things winding down a bit for me in the next month or so, and NEW episodes finally airing, we'll get back on track soon.

We'll be posting an all-purpose flailing post on the day of the show's return, 4/28. I think we're all in some serious need of some flailing, y/y? So, with two weeks to go, we thought we'd try out our first discussion post (amidst our glee in House dropping trou in Cuddy's office and red thongs being bandied about, we like to show we have some substance, too). We'll kick it off with a topic to get us started.

What are your favorite House/Cuddy moments?

These are two characters that have such a rich and complex relationship, there's so much buried in every look they exchange. Always keep in mind that visual aid is what this community is all about!

EDIT, already: We consider anal-retentiveness to be a sign of coolness around here. Numbered lists, with subsets even, are totally embraced. Top Five Season 1 Moments, Small Gestures, Favorite Tit-for-Tat One-Liners, Best Moments Starring Cuddy's Guilt... just some ideas to get things started, because I know without any order, it all just flows out in capslocky flail!

icon!SPAM

First, we want to thank everyone who voted in the poll -- it definitely gave us an idea of where to go with this community in the future. When ellixian  and I are both swamped with such annoyances (and general hindrances to fangirling), we hope to at least post some fun games, discussion, etc. posts to keep the community active. So, with that said...


NEW GAME: icon!SPAM
A couple of examples follow, but really, anything goes! One obvious rule -- your icon must include House, Cuddy, House/Cuddy, and/or sex (which includes all of the former, as well as Hugh and Lisa, naturally). If you run out of your LJ userpics, feel free to post icons uploaded elsewhere! After you upload the icon somewhere (photobucket.com, tinypic.com, imageshack.us, etc.) choose the HTML code option.


ellixian 's icon poses a question:

To which jukebox_grad 's icon answers:

At which point anyone chimes in with, perhaps:


Or, even more simply, ellixian  posts with her "Airporne" icon and jukebox_grad  posts with her matchy icon:


Seeing as how the last new episode was just aired, we thought it was as good a time as any to put some polls out there to see what you guys would like to see here! We'd appreciate it if you could take the time to participate in a brief poll. Also, PLEASE feel free to leave any additional comments. Any feedback you guys can give us would be great!

For the picspams, we tend to use a cap from the most significant House/Cuddy moment. Considering the picspams have been going up fairly soon after the episode airs, what length of time after the episode would you consider "spoilery" caps to be fair game outside of a cut?

72 hours after the episode airs
12(21.1%)
1 week
3(5.3%)
Don't use the most spoilery caps for the current season
1(1.8%)
I don't care
4(7.0%)
Spoil me, baby!
37(64.9%)

Since this is technically a House/Cuddy community, should we include Cuddy-only scenes in the guides/picspams?

Yes! More Cuddy = Better World
42(72.4%)
Yes, but maybe with fewer caps than the House/Cuddy scenes
9(15.5%)
Only Cuddy scenes that are relevant to House and the House/Cuddy relationship
7(12.1%)

Since the show is on an indefinite hiatus, we wanted to get a better idea of whether we should just focus on the episode-specific picspams, or continue with more interactive posts. What kind of posts would you like to see more of?

Focus more on the episode-specific guides/picspams for past episodes
6(10.7%)
Pic-Fic community spam posts
1(1.8%)
All-purpose community spam posts
1(1.8%)
Interactive games (caption the photo, picspam prompts, etc.)
4(7.1%)
Discussion posts (favorite episodes, moments, quotes, analysis of the relationship, etc.)
2(3.6%)
House's and Cuddy's nether regions
1(1.8%)
Other (please comment with any thoughts and ideas)
0(0.0%)

For the interactive posts (discussion, community spam, etc.), when should the posts go up?

The day before an episode
5(9.1%)
The day of an episode
11(20.0%)
Weekend
6(10.9%)
No preference
33(60.0%)

House + Cuddy = SEX

Yes!
2(3.4%)
YESSSSSSSS
0(0.0%)
OMG YES
5(8.6%)
I AM DEAD (THAT MEANS YES)
10(17.2%)
ARE YOU ON CRACK. OBVIOUSLY, RITE?

PICSPAM: 4X12 DON'T EVER CHANGE

4X12 DON'T EVER CHANGE
Writers: Doris Egan & Leonard Dick
Director: Deran Sarafian
Original Airdate: 5 Feb 2008



House has to grapple with his belief that people never change in order to treat a rapidly declining woman who converted to Hasidic Judaism just six months ago, even as he tries to come to terms with the fact that Wilson's new love interest is rejected fellowship candidate Amber Volakis (a.k.a, Cutthroat Bitch).

WARNING: Have decided to be nice and not inadvertently spoil people with the EPIC MOMENT OF WIN that occurred in this episode - though there's a gift for you guys somewhere in the first scene below. That gift will be edited into the header of the post after 72 hours of spoiler-free time has been provided for everyone. As usual, caps galore ahead that you can expect to be super unfriendly to dial-up users: Cuddy had three scenes and I managed 100 caps. WTF!

Writer: Liz Friedman

Original Airdate: 3 Feb 2008



House forms an unusually strong connection with his newest patient - a sassy psychiatrist stuck in the South Pole, whom he can only diagnose via webcam.

WARNING: Caps galore ahead, as usual. Tried a little something different with the pic-spam too - part of it is a comic! The kinkiest House/Cuddy comic ever, but well... who's complaining, eh?!

PICSPAM: 4X10 IT'S A WONDERFUL LIE

4X10 IT'S A WONDERFUL LIE
Writer: Pamela Davis
Director: Matt Shakman
Original Airdate: 29 Jan 2008



It's Christmas at Princeton-Plainsboro and House plays his new fellows off each other in the most devious game of Secret Santa ever - even as he tries to prove that there's no way his rapidly declining patient Maggie could have been completely honest with her daughter all their lives.

WARNING: There be a crazy amount of caps ahead. Yes, we had just the ONE SCENE but that did not stop me from making close to 40 caps because HAI LISA YOU ARE GORGEOUS AND SO GAYIFYING AND I GOT CARRIED AWAY. Dial-up is not Lisa's friend...




IT'S SO GOOD TO HAVE YOU BACK, SHOW. NOW PLEASE TO BE HAVING FIFTY CUDDY SCENES PER EPISODE, KTHX.
