I love House. Ok, there are parts of House where my son Matthew says “Mom, don’t look.” I’m not great with the gross medical aspects of the show. I would have probably gone to medical school instead of law school if I didn’t have that little problem of passing out when people are bleeding.
This week’s show featured a male Jewish Porn star…and for some reason they had to point out that it was an unusual occupation — is that really true? I don’t really have the statistics to dispute the jewish participation in the adult film industry one way or the other. They didn’t mention on the yesterday’s OPRAH where they took an in depth look at the porn industry and women (odd programming I think for daytime…but that’s another issue).
In any case, the porn star continues to tell the doctors that he grew up in an extremely controlling and clean household….thus his attraction to the porn industry. AND the solution to his medical problem is that he grew up in such a clean environment that he has no immunity to anything…so they have to put the worms back in to help him (have you ever noticed how many House episodes depend on worms?)….
As the Jewish mother of two boys…my reaction to this episode was “really”? His controlling and super clean household drove him to porn and a life threatening condition….
My conclusion: some writer had a serious score to settle with his mother!
