My laptop died on the flight home from Los Angeles to New York. Of course I was on the one carrier that has TV screens on the backs of every seats but no outlets. As I put my computer away and resigned myself to whatever TV programming was being offered, I had no idea what i wanted to watch. I basically did that thing where you spin a globe and see where your finger lands. Mine landed on a touchscreen icon for a show called House M.D, and the next three months of my life were immediately changed.
