House = Holmes: It’s Elementary

A while back, I noted the similarities between Fox’s House (pretty much the only television show I watch with regularity) and Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. In Tuesday’s episode, the producers/writers bent over backwards to show the connection.

It may have slipped the notice of the casual observer, but surely didn’t slip by us here at TruePravda. In the opening scene, House and Dr. Wilson are exiting House’s apartment. For a moment, we see the address on the side of the building over House’s shoulder: 221B. I’ll bet he even lives on Baker Street.
