Title: House, MD
Post by: BEERxTaco on February 15, 2007, 10:25:52 AM
What's the deal, are they trying to lay the groundwork for House to get together with Cuddy?

Nah, there's no way...

Presumably you are responding to a recent ep, I have just finished watching season 1 on DVD and I pretty much always assumed that was one of the underlying paths of the show.

Yeah, I suppose, but don't you think it would be a huge mistake? I mean, where would it go from there?

Hopefully it's just a "bubbling under the surface" sexual tension thing... and there wasn't anything any more blatant than usual really, it just seems like a trend that's been getting more and more apparent.

I think House loves his hookers too much to give Cuddy a serious chance.  Plus, that whole time when he yelled at her and said she'd be a terrible mother...while it might have been true, that was kind of a dick move.

Also, I'm hoping he and wheelchair doctor hook up.

I'd rather House and Cuddy than House and Cameron.  At least Cuddy gives a bit of a fight.  Cameron is just a push over and a wuss.  House would rip her to shreds.  They've been hinting at House and Cameron for a while too.  I was happy when they upped the Cuddy angle a bit.

Cameron's been showing a bit more backbone this season though.  It's kind of like she and Foreman have swapped places this season, because now he's often the sentimental one and she's become the no-nonsense one.

I think House would love to have relations with Cuddy, but since he works for her, he couldn't do it.  It'd be one of the few times House actually acts appropriately in regards to morals.  Either that or he's got some twisted logic that it'd screw things up, or he'd say she'll be too needy and clingy (which may not be far from the truth if she's all baby gung-ho).

I love House.  Hugh Laurie is awesome in the role and so different from his work in Blackadder.  Stephen Fry or Rowan Atkinson would be a great guest star (especially as it seems Fry is working in US TV at the moment).  I would like to see a relationship develop between Cuddy and House, as I think it would offer something new to the show and because Lisa Edelstein is flat out brilliant - I've loved her ever since she was in West Wing as Rob Lowe's prostitue girlfriend and then the transsexual in Ally McBeal.

as always great contribution and oh so witty (what do bon-bons taste like anyways maybe i would like em)

anywho, i broke one of my biggest rules,  i watched a show that could almost be called real.  Mostly because i friend said i sound so very much like house and that i would love the show.  Who knew he would be right.  I watched the show because its free over here, and they have MOSt of the first season.  I really like his charectar.  As long as he doesnt get wishywashy and stays cantankerous the whole show i feel i could watch this a long time.

   I didn't remember Lisa Edelstein playing a transexual on Ally McBeal, but it does tie into what I've been thinking since Rebecca Romijn started playing one on Ugly Betty the last few weeks.  TV transexuals are way hotter than the ones that show up on daytime talk shows.

ok so i was thinking about this show last night, and it occured to me (though it probably already occured to most of you) there are a lot of similarities between House (the charectar) and sherlock holmes. 

Both have addictions with negative effects, both only take cases based solely on their interest in the overall problem or if they provide puzzles, They both deal rather shortly with people and have no time for politeness.  They both have assitants (granted holmes place is taken by three very competant Dr.s) 

So anyways i just thought it was interesting.

I enjoy House, but I agree with BBQ... having him hook up with Cuddy / Cameron would be a big mistake. Introduce some tertiary character as a girlfriend who you can make appear and disappear without messing with the core. If you start down the whole "Sam and Diane" or "David and Maddie" path... only disaster awaits.

if im going from my sherlock example, he could have one love, and then she would die.  He cant have a long standing relationship and it still work.  Further he cant date cameron because that would be watson, he cant date cuddy cause in my thinking she would be to house as the police are to sherlock, kinda love hate sort of thing.

There's actually quite a few Sherlock Holmes refrences in the show. 

I was going to write some nifty, clever paragraph describing the similarities, but it's just so much easier to quote wikipedia.  So here we go!
Quote
The main character in House M.D, Gregory House, is based on Sherlock Holmes, particularly with regard to drug use and his desire (and capacity) to solve the insolvable. House uses Holmesian deductive techniques to diagnose his patients' problems. References to the sleuth range from the obvious (House's apartment number being 221B) to the subtle (his friendship with Dr. James Wilson and the similarities between the names House and Holmes, and Wilson and Watson). In the very first (pilot) episode the patient's last name is Adler, and in the last episode of season two, the last name of the man who shot House is Moriarty.


Remember, not a new episode tonight.   :-[

neat advice and all, but you still haven't defined your terms or really dealt with the underlying problem in your argument. 

just because a show has some romance in it, it doesn't automatically make it a soap opera.  Even the freaken Simpson's has plenty of romance in it.

  Ingrown,  FYI, I don't watch daytime talk shows but I do see The Soup and Best Week Ever and those types of clips show up there.  If I am watching tv during the day it's usually something on DVD.
    Rebecca Romijn was on Jimmy Kimmel's show last night and Kimmel pulled out a bunch of photos of transexuals like the tennis player Renee Richards and other manly-looking ones.  What I said before was just meant as a joke on tv's varied perceptions of transexuals.
    I don't know what kind of programming you do watch and frankly I don't care.  I guessed wrestling because that seemed appropriate for someone who would choose the ID  Ingrown Asshair, a fitting identity for an irritant.  Sorry if you can't take a joke.

The Simpsons don't have huge amounts of time dealing with story arcs involving love interests, though. There might be an episode or two centered around romantic relationships or conflict, but the show is not built upon it.

A downright HUGE chunk of episodic TV could be defined as "soap operas". Anything with an ongoing dramatic storyline could qualify... So yes, House MD could very well be considered to have "soap opera" aspects, altho it's hardly the crux of the show. The same could be said for wrestling, as that has various "dramatic" storylines featuring good guys, bad guys, romantic entaglements, etc. Heck, wresting fits the "soap opera" bill much better than most shows actually. They just did a hormone swap and replaced the estrogen with testosterone.

look someone who knows what the word DEFINE means lol.  and yes in that definition ill agree one could count house is soap.  It truly is the least relevant part of the show, and thats why that aspect is usually the beggining and end bookend and not usually more than 10 minutes are really spent on charectar development.  usually

Yikes! All this over a comparison to a soap opera? I read comics and I'm cool with comparing THEM to soap operas. Relationships are forged and broken, nobody stays dead, problems arise involving evil twins... Anyway, it's not an insult to compare something to soaps, and if the comparison's not valid, it's an inaccurate non-insult. Directed at a TV show... How does the theme to that one show we all like end?

If a person doesnt watch but has a valid complaint/comment about said show then they are welcome to join the conversation. 

So back to the soapy "will he get with cuddy" question.  I hope not.  I like it when they are against one another.  However ive always thought she kinda kept him around because she likes him, or at least likes what he stands for.  Someone who is confident, and will go to great lengths to save patients. 
Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: AmandaGal on February 23, 2007, 09:56:14 AM
See, I don't think Cuddy would back down if they were lovers anyway.  She's the strongest character in House's entourage.  I don't see her as the type to be all "Oh well, as long as you love me you can do whatever the heck you want at the hospital!"  I think she could separate work from personal.

I do think you're right.  She keeps him around because she likes him and envies him in some ways.  He says the things she'd love to be able to say but since she's in her position, she can't.
Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: sarcasm_made_Easy on February 23, 2007, 09:59:01 AM
i think it goes deeper than her position.  I think she knows he is often right, but has gotten the "morality" that he rails against so ingraned in her thinking that she cant escape it.  She can only see he is right AFTER the fact, never during. Its kinda why with the whole sherlock metaphor i enlikened her to the police.  They need sherlock they even respect him, but they often dont agree or even like him.  After sherlock has done something amazing they then realize his worth.

I really like how you say that, it definatly makes sense to me. 

For me in some episodes i could see them getting together but ultimatly i dont think it would be a smart decision.  I'm not sure how but i t just doesnt to me seem to fit.  I really love the show, but the only thing I hate is the teasers for the next episodes "All New Secret of Houes revealed!" "House has a secret never been told" Is it just me or have they done that for like 4 different episodes?

I like it when formula shows play around with the formula; if they don't, they tend to bore me after a while.  I'd like to see House in a relationship with Cuddy because it would become a new dynamic between them rather than just the boss/employee roles that they play out now.  Eventually, I'd even like to see House become a better person: I absolutely hate it when a character's emotional progression is reverted back to their old self (i.e. Monk) for the sake of keeping the same formula for the show.

Lots.   ;D   Even then things changed about the characters involved: for example, Watson got married and moved away from Holmes.  Plus the Holmes' mysteries are more expansive than House's.  It's easier to adapt your formula when you travel around the country and world solving mysteries, House is confined to a couple of rooms in a hospital.

For now anyways,  I dont know i dont like romance for charectars like house.  I also dont like the idea of him getting better.  Cause often hollywood means by that is getting more normal.  Which would negate the interest i have in the show.  I would rather (if you must mess with the formula) make him get worse.

Well, I don't see how you could keep the day-to-day formula of House solving medical mysteries without him being in a hospital.  As for House becoming a better person, that's just a personal preference of mine, which I agree with you in that probably wouldn't make the show better.

I think they should get him off the vicodin.  There are so many medical inaccuracies surrounding his addiction  Give him some Oxy or something for god's sake.  It's better anyway and I perhaps wouldn't want to strangle them in every episode that deals with it, hehe.

I mean, seriously, he has an oncologist who deals with chronic pain medications pretty frequently prescribing his pain meds and he gets vicodin?  Come on.

They could send him to a "hurricane Katrina" situation or be like Dr. Carter on ER and go to Africa but then he wouldn't have his fancy tests and machines.

I thought the episode where he councilled a rape victim was excellent, where he didn't have the advantage of his diagnostic skills or his team to help him.

Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: AmandaGal on February 24, 2007, 01:46:22 PM
The whole Tritter arc brought up a bunch of them.  My favorite was when the doc at the clinic offered to prescribe him Tylenol #3 and then said he couldn't prescribe Vicodin because it was a narcotic. . . wtf?  Their defense of House's "addiction" and the process of addiction and pain management was weak and it would seem like if I know it's weak, a hospital full of doctors would also realize that.  Overall, I think they don't handle the explanation of pain management very well.

However my biggest qualm is that he's a doctor and he knows better than to take that much Tylenol.  His "addiction" to pain medications is often mentioned, the fact that his liver is probably destroyed right now is rarely talked about (although, I did notice he mentioned it in the latest episode).  They seem to be more concerned with his "mental state" which, if he was really in pain is less of an issue with something like vicodin than his liver function.  They should have given him another drug of choice, but I guess vicodin is easier to get in real life than schedule 2 narcotics.  In truth, and I've seen this, if he took that much vicodin, he'd be have external symptoms of liver disease most likely.

It's little things.  Every episode I'm like "That's crazy wrong."  On the other hand, there's lots of "real life" medical inaccuracies that just have to be thrown aside for the glory of television.  For example, I've seen people with tapeworms.   Never once have I seen a surgeon cut them open and extract it on the table.  Why the heck would you?  Wouldn't it be better to give them a medication that would kill it and be done with it? Who cares if she has CIPA.  She can still get surgical complications and infections and everything.  There's also the surgeons legal liability when you slice someone's GI tract open right there on the table and pull out a 30 foot worm.  On the other hand, saying, "Looks like you have a tapeworm!  You should probably take this pill" is a lot less dramatic.

They also make the pharmacist look like a complete and total tool every time they show him.  Pharmacists aren't morons, man! He's always the bumbling idiot in every scene he's in, heh.

heh,  poor amanda this show is not just touching your sore spot in life, but currently drilling into it. lol

I dont really worry about the medical stuff.  I dont know if its real and i dont want to know, His personality and how he deals with both morality, and with analyzing a problem is what i find interesting.  Also his everybody lies theory is interesting too. 

I just assume its star trek medicine.  Made up stuff thats in acuality secondary to whats actually being done.

There are so many medical inaccuracies surrounding his addiction 

might curiosity is piqued, what are those inaccuracies?
See for yourself.  Each episode reviewed by a medical doctor.  Overall, it seems to do fairly well.

What gets me is that most of the time it's somewhat accurate.  I mean, granted in a real hospital he wouldn't have the time to spend on one patient and his lackies wouldn't be doing all the tests and such but overall I think it's more accurate than most medical shows.  Sometimes it's just nutty.

I still enjoy it for the story and I love House as a character.

Post by: Quicksilver on February 27, 2007, 04:13:01 PM
nice, I didn't know there was a house thread here, this site gets better and better....I'm a complet house addict..

I really liked the discussion of his addiction, I had another huge problem with something else in the whole trotter thing. Why on earth did house have like 90 vicotin bottles, it's like hes a squirrel hiding nuts, what addict is going to have bottles everywhere, wouldn't he finish one, throw it get another, not leave 90 bottles with 2 pills in each. Who saves all that crap.

 I understand they were trying to show he had a huge problem, but come on. Also why on earth does he take vicotin, he could easily switch to something like oxycotin and dose it out the same a vicotin pill, minus all that tylenol. My girlfriend just brought up a good point though, as a show, they probably don't want to use oxycotin since it has such a stigma attached to it, but they should have come up with something else then.

Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: AmandaGal on February 27, 2007, 06:58:30 PM
The only thing I can think of is to medically accurate, oxycontin is more tightly controlled than Vicodin in real life.  It's a DEA Schedule 2 which they really keep a close eye on.  I guess in that sense, it's more realistic that he'd be addicted to something that's easier to get and reviewed with a lot less scrutiny. . . although even then, there's stuff that's got less Tylenol than regular Vicodin.

It just bothers me because if he really was taking *that* much, he'd likely have problems and if they really want to show him "strung out" and really as an addict, he'd probably be seeking something stronger.  He's got access to morphine, meperidine, etc.  All are tightly controlled but he doesn't really seem to care and he could get it.  He seems to think he's "unstoppable" so I think he'd try and honestly, in a real life hospital, morphine wouldn't be that hard to get (I think he's given himself morphine before).

What I meant about not liking the discussion is that I don't think the discussion was very accurate.  I'd have to rewatch the whole arc to elaborate but I don't think they did any favors to pain management.  It just seemed like they could have explained it medically to the judge because everything House is doing and his escalating doses makes perfect sense, not from an addiction standpoint but from a PAIN standpoint and he's clearly in pain.
Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: sarcasm_made_Easy on February 27, 2007, 07:06:32 PM
The reason he doesnt go stronger i think is because he would disdain it.  I think anything he might possibly despise he refuse.  He is addicted to vicodin, he knows it and is fine with it.  He isnt addicted to something else so isnt fine with that.

I guess youre right, its tough. On one hand using anything thing stronger than vicotin would be hard, but using just that would ruin your liver. Like you said he should at least be on something like vicoprophen or something with less tylenol, which you can get. I also agree he is obviously in pain, I was thinking that quite a bit during the trotter thing, there's a fine line between an addict and a patient. I've learned this myself after two back surgeries(in my 20's). When your on vicotin for like a year straight because of the level 10 pain, you start getting bad looks from the pharmacists and such even if you're clearly in pain. Luckily my doctor wasnt an idiot and didnt try to kill my liver. It went 5, 7.5, 10 than perc, than oxy over the course of 10months, till surgery. Mind you I quit right afterwards (slightly sucked). Anyone who knows what I'm talking knows what that meant, for the others, I'm not going into details.

btw yeah Rush limbaugh sp? and all the osbournes are addicted to oxy, kind of nasty stuff imo or at the very least, it should be highly regulated, like it is. Unless your a big fat conservative talk show host, it's not easy to get.

golf references for house:

1.  He IS patient 3, so he was injured while playing golf, but as he is telling it is carmen electra at that point in the episode he also says that she is a good golfer, am i reaching but i think he is talking about himself.
2.  when they come back to Houses story, the question him about which carmen electra again he certifies that she is the golfer
3.  when he is put into a coma he say: "ill see you when i wake up,  we will go golfing."

It wasn't one of my favorites. I don't like the hint that something already may have happened between House and Cuddy. Don't get me wrong, I think they're great together, but it really bugs me when shows rewrite their history like that.

In general, I think they need to turn the hose on everybody before it turns into a "Gray's Anatomy" clone!
Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: AmandaGal on March 28, 2007, 07:38:07 AM
I liked the episode but I agree with the Grey's comment.  I used to find Cameron mildly annoying but now she just pisses me off.  When did she become a slutskateering bitch anyway?  Her past character triats, to me, don't lead up to her current character(I did find House walking on them hiliarious though).

Part of me thinks it is because the two actors are horny bunnies with each other right now so they figure their characters should be too...and even then, I have less of a problem with the sex (even if it seems out of character) than I do with the total bitchness.  We haven't had any reason to believe House has broken her sappy, annoying character until now.

The whole dreaming the cure seemed a cop out too.  When did this become a Soap?
Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: PlayMSTie on March 28, 2007, 07:44:00 AM
It's amazing to me that they can't get the character of Cameron consistent, when most of the other characters are so good. I had FINALLY started to like her in the first part of this season, when she grew a backbone and grew up a little. Then they went overboard and turned her into a witch ("Sure, I'll have sex with you in private, but I'll treat you like less than dirt in public so no one will ever know")! What gives? Chase is a dolt for putting up with it. It's his turn to get a backbone.

Cameron charectar isnt as annoying as chases to me.  i havent seen the third season yet but it seems like he is the one char who they have done the least with.

House has dropped hints, but it always seemed like that was just House being House.

Given that House already "lost" Cameron once before, I suspect it's safe to say that we'll see at least one, probably more, of the three of them back with him within 1-2 episodes next season. I don't think that the writers would completely break up all of the good dynamic that they and the actors have built up between the doctors. And I also would never believe that all 3 actors would WANT to move on to other projects at this point (which is a common reason for writing someone out of the show).

Did some poking around... and according to a tvguide.com article, Omar Epps has confirmed he will be back for Season Four.... so there is at least one of three staying on board. I'm fairly certain that all of them would be coming back. Unless they were asking for huge raises or something, there isn't much of a reason to screw with the cast.

They'll figure out a way to get them all back together.  They always do.  I actually kinda figured they'd do sort of a "switcheroo" and have Foreman end up deciding to stay just as Cameron leaves and Chase is fired.  Plus, I think House likes Foreman more than he does Chase or Cameron.  At least more than Chase, anyway.
Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: AmandaGal on May 30, 2007, 04:43:48 PM
I figure House will be in some sort of major trouble (be it a case or something personal) and the team will come back to save him in some way (and I guess we don't care about spoilers at this point).  That way they can prove they need each other but House can sarcastically play it off and pretend he knew they'd come back, etc.

Something big will bring them back, regardless.  I think Chase is growing on House and growing to be more like House or at least he seems to understand House better now than at first.  Foreman is House Lite no matter how much he protests.
Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: Chaos on May 30, 2007, 07:34:51 PM
I don't really think of Foreman as House Lite. House's entire point in the confrontation / apology scene was that he has no disillusionment about what he is or why he does what he does - while Foreman is denying his own nature in an attempt to change that nature, thereby making him "worse" than House - at least as far as House is concerned (which is all that matters!).
Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: AmandaGal on May 30, 2007, 07:46:57 PM
I think the nature he is denying is that he is like House and doesn't want to admit it.  He's deluded himself into to thinking he's better or at least he can be better.  I loved it last episode when he says, "Don't tell me I'm better than him.  Cameron already did that."  He thinks he's better because of his newfound morality, but he's.  He's just found this morality because he thinks he should not because he really has it.  He doesn't understand that House has the same morality as he does, he just isn't as insecure about it and doesn't have to wear it on his sleeve.  Foreman's true self is very House like.

Foreman will be House in a few years.  Nobody can keep that act for long.
Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: dignan on May 31, 2007, 05:29:38 AM
Yeah, up until Foreman nearly died last season, he didn't seem to have all that much of a problem with being a lot like House. 

I had to wait until yesterday to see the episode, but now that I have, I'm a little miffed about it ending with everybody scattered to the wind.  I'm assuming everyone will come back next season, but still, I just don't like turmoil. 

Chase has totally become my favorite character this season.  He must have learned transfiguration or something, because he's turned into a golden retriever puppy.  An Australian golden retriever puppy.

I had always been a little annoyed by the Chase character... but they did a nice job with him this season. While I think all three of the "ducklings" have somewhat figured out House... Chase seems to be the one that understands his motivations the best... at least as season three went on.

I wasn't a big fan of how the Chase/Cameron romance angle was handled... as it just dragged out for multiple episodes with zero movement, only to be rushed to some goofy "knock on your door in the middle of the night" schtick for the finale.... but a minor complaint.
Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: dignan on May 31, 2007, 08:22:22 AM
Yes, Chase became a pretty good detective in his own right the last half of the season.  Although Cameron treated him like crap and at this point he deserves better, I did kind of find their last scene together sweet.  But still, I don't think that'd work.  I think if I reminded a girl that I had a relationship with that was over every Tuesday that I liked her, by about week three I'd get punched, and by week seven I'd have myself a shiny new restraining order. 
Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: daltysmilth on May 31, 2007, 09:13:15 AM
I don't think Foreman is going to become another House.  House is House, and he's always been the way he is.  I think Foreman will always care what people think of him.  He won't lie to make a patient feel better about himself, certainly, but he also wouldn't insult a patient to his face just for his own amusement.  Foreman might become a lot like House, but there will always be big differences between the two.
Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: Blueguy on May 31, 2007, 11:37:58 PM
What House said to Foreman at the end was dead on.  House is a better person then Foreman because all he cares about is figuring out the problem.  6 months from now, the families won't care how they were treated.  They'll be glad the person is alive.  And because of that, House won't give up where Foreman was willing to give up.

I can totally see Foreman coming back after he dwells on that last conversation for a while. 
Him firing Chase was a bit of a shock.  I just don't see the logic in that, other then it seemed like the underlying message is that House is finally willing to change things around, like him getting a new guitar.  I can see Chase coming back too, because I think he understands House and knows that he's the best person to learn from.  Cameron on the other hand, she quit on principle.  Knowing her attitude, I just don't see her changing her mind.  Hell, House practically had to beg her back the first time.  This time around, I don't think he cares.

Oh, and I gotta say, the last 2 episodes have had some kickass funny lines.  Seems they've been slacking off on the funny this season.  The Jerk kid was great and the whole episode was filled with funny.  And this episode, all the god and religion comments. "either put her in God's hands or in mine."  I liked when he was doing the angiogram and he yells to the husband, "I better not see you praying!  I don't wanna have to fight for credit on this."  I especially loved his delivery when he threatened to slap the wife when she said, "Thank God."

Didn't even know it came out.  Picked it up last night and watched the first 3.  Oddly, I seem to recall not being all that pleased with the level of humor for most of the season, but last night, I was ok with the level of humor presented.  Not sure if I was just in a bad mood during the original airings or my expectations have been lowered. 
Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: sarcasm_made_Easy on August 25, 2007, 05:12:10 PM
woooo i finally caught up. 

so that last episode. 

In retrospect i think firing chase makes sense.  Chase has figured not house out, but houses METHODS.  he had some amazingly brillinant leaps of logics in this season.  He has "learned" what he needs to.  and house has finally relized it, thanks to wilson. 

I kinda hope they DONT come back.  i want to see house with new people and situations.  there was always a danger that house was gonna get stale because of the situation the same.  I want to see houses interview and new employee process.  he picked three differnet VERY intelligent drs knowing that all of them are screwed up.  then who does he look for when he wants new people.

Yeah, but shows always do that. It certainly defeats the purpose of having a drama, but they ALWAYS do it - like people are blind or don't read or something.

This was a fun show. I loved Dr. Buffer, and as others have said, the exchanges and interplay between House and Wilson were great fun. Looking forward to the rest of the season.

So far, House has been my favourite returning show... the other premieres were only "meh" or mildly entertaining at best.

Loved Dr. Buffer suggesting it might be Lupis. Great way to fit the running gag in. This is by far the best (and funniest) episode I've seen of House. Good medical twist. Loved Wilson and the ransom letter stuff. The whammy bar in the box was great too.

Yes, but this happens with guest appearances and minor characters, too. There have been several instances over the years of "big surprises" in a show being ruined by the fact that the actor's name shows up in the opening credits. Biggest recent example: when Walt (or a vision thereof) returned to Lost... it wasn't a surprise when he showed up, because the credits told us 45 minutes earlier that he was going to be around somewhere.

It's just stupid. A show doesn't NEED to give credits at the beginning of the episode, because the full credits are listed at the end. The credits are just there at the beginning of movies and TV shows because of the continually growing egotism of the actors involved. Some of them demand it, so it has become standard practice... but it doesn't have to be. There are no legal requirements involved, it all has to do with contractual agreements - which could be removed, if some of the agencies and individuals involved just stopped demanding it.

For me, the best part of the episode was Wilson all disappointed that House wasn't actually taking him to lunch.  He's like a kid told he's going to Disneyland who ends up at the dentist.  House erasing Wilson's telenovela was hilarious too.  Very good episode, can't wait until next week.

I think the production companies are doing that due to the fact the TV channels squish the end credits to the point of illegibility so they can tell us about whatever shite is comming up after the show we've been enjoying and might want to know who to thank.

The end credits squishing thing annoys me a little ;D

Great episode, I liked Cameron Redux and that was a lovely guitar. Next weeks episode looks great, I like to see the earnest Asian Doctor from Three Stories included in the duckling idol audition.

Sometimes, yes, but sometimes the mystery returning cast member was revealed in the credits the same as on other shows. For example, the episode from Season 5 when Riley returned, his name was listed in the on screen credits during the first scene (not the title credits, the ones that flash on screen once the show starts).

Also, he specifically put Tara in the opening credits ONLY on the episode that she was killed in, to shut the fans up who kept complaining about her not being in the credits.

Great episode.  Laurie is brilliant as House, and the interplay between the three cast members was golden.  Without the other regular cast there, it gave the writers more time to spread between Cuddy and Wilson, and it worked perfectly.  Interesting on the whole new team members angle though - if they're going to spend so long a time on the subplot of House hiring new people, then surely it seems a little redundant to get rid of them when the old team returns.  Perhaps it's a season long arc they're planning?

I tend to think that we'll end up with a new team for House by the end of the season, but the original three will be back in the show as minor characters in other departments, sort of thing. I don't think it's in this show's style  to completely restore the status quo... I mean, House lost Cameron once before, and DID manage to get her back, but the dynamic was changed because of it. I really wouldn't expect them to mirror this previous event again... so when they do come back (the cast list confirms that they'll be returning in some capacity), I don't think it's going to be on his team anymore.

"The hair makes you look like a hooker. I LIKE it."

Oh, and #6 coming back as #9, too awesome. Very ballsy and blatant, just House's style. I hope he makes it to the team, or at least lasts a few more episodes.

It turned out that the guy wasn't actually a doctor (which was why he let #13 do the procedure). But he said that he had been an administrator at a medical school for 30 years, and had audited every single class over the years, most of them more than once - he just hadn't gotten a degree. He figured since House was a breaker of rules, he might give him a chance anyway.

House told him there was no way he could hire him as a doctor, but he should stick it out anyway, as he could still give House his opinions, get him coffee, pick up his dry cleaning, etc.

26 says: "Are you offering me a job as your secretary?"
House says: "Assistant. It sounds slightly less demeaning."
26 says: "That's not exactly my dream job."
House says: "Yes it is. It's just not your dream title."

I'd like that too, but what role would he play?

The one fellow doctor who "gets" house completely (much jealousy from Wilson)

A reverse of their common personae whereby Hugh plays the more startlingly intelligent one?

A brief scene in a bar where house pours out his soul with the Barman finishing his sentences?

I would love to see that too, but unfortunately it probably won't happen. Laurie and Fry work great together, but despite being the main character, it's not "Laurie's Show." I don't think the producers have the insight to throw this pair together even for one episode... shame really.

Maybe if Hugh suggests it? It COULD happen. It would certainly be a kickin' episode if it ever did! :)

The ending was quite sad and it does raise the debate if the dog accidentally swallowed them or if they knocked them down in hopes of the dog swallowing them (i.e. suicide). I don't think it was 13's fault, there was really no way that she could have seen that from happening.

Also, poor Foreman. He should not have gotten fired like that, he did the right thing. I guess that means he's coming back to Princeton. But still, I am still loling over the cutthroat bitch name.

Post by: Chaos on October 09, 2007, 08:05:58 PM
Holy crap, that was a good episode. Second best episode ever (Three Stories is still the best). Very hard to watch towards the end. I'm not usually an emotional person (especially when it comes to television), but when he asked for the dog to be brought over, and that whole scene - it really got to me.

Scenes like that are exactly why my wife refuses to watch House with me. Well, that, and dying babies.

The administrator that fired Foreman did exactly what any admin in the real world would do. House works for the only hospital in the universe where he could get away with the shit he pulls. In the real world, if a doctor breaks the rules for any reason, they are toast. My mother and stepfather are both doctors, and on more than one occasion they have seen doctors lose their jobs for doing something completely unacceptable that ended up saving the patient's life. Because the thing is, sooner or later doing that WILL get someone killed that shouldn't have died, and then the entire hospital is in jeopardy.

Anyway... really good episode. I hope the writing for the rest of the season stays as sharp as it has been so far.

I think it will, it was just a sad episode at the very end...but makes you leave with the debate on if the guy wanted to die or the dog swallowed the pills by accident, you have to see it to make your own judgment. But it was a very good episode that got to a lot people, including myself.

A little off topic, but it relates, I can't stand rape scenes and fights when it comes to parents.

I hate to see animals suffer in movies because you know that an animal who's suffering doesn't understand what's happening, and somehow that just seems to make it worse.

The scene from last night didn't bother me too much, though, because it happened quickly and the dog didn't seem to feel much pain, if any. Odd coincidence, though, that the dog should die just as his master did, so long after taking the pills. As for the patient, I'm inclined to think he must have known about the pills and didn't tell anyone because he wanted to die. I mean, the doctor left the pills with him and told him to take them, and all of a sudden they'd disappear and he wouldn't think anything of it?

Its how they ended the movie The Notebook with the couple dying together in their sleep.

The master and the dog dying didn't bother me, what bothered me was that with how it was setup, the master might have wanted to kill himself so he let the dog swallow the pills. Its going to be interesting debate on any House fan site forums.

Well, while it's true that it's foolish or blatantly stupid to let anyone or any creature swallow a pill that's not intended for it, it was only because the dog was a specific breed that the pills killed it. Possibly the guy knocked it over and didn't think the dog would actually eat the pills (lots of dogs won't, no matter how hard you try or how much cheese you wrap around it - most pet owners can confirm this). It may have just been a sort of tragic mistake on his part that the dog ended up eating them, even if he WAS trying to kill himself and it wasn't an accident / oversite on #13's behalf.

As far as the dog dying shortly afterwards, I would still attribute that to the dog holding on for the sake of its owner, even though it was sick too. Once the owner was dead, the dog didn't have any reason to fight and be strong anymore, so it let go too.

I'm getting choked up again just thinking about it. Damn, that was a very well written episode.

No kidding. I've been thinking about my dog that I lost a little over year ago to congestive heart failure. He held on all day long until I came home from work, then died as I was driving him to the hospital. I'd like to think that it was a comfort to him that I was with him at the end and he felt like it was finally okay to let go...

As someone who knows someone with a service dog, I'm inclined to think the master gave the pills to the dog intentionally.  Service dogs are trained to not consume anything without consent.  If you ever try to give table food to a service dog, the master will tell you not to, because that will get the dog into the habit of taking table food, and that would compromise the relationship between the dog and the master.

Hasn't been less fun for me to watch.  I love a mean House.

The episode this week was pretty good.  I even enjoyed the custody subplot for it's humor but it was fucking stupid and it starting to strain the fourth wall a bit. I know this show is out of the box and none of it was really grounded in reality but you can strain the rubber band too far and they did it the other night. With all the cast changeups there's plenty of comedy and story left without resorting to that lame friend custody shit. I enjoyed it while it was on but there's no way I'd want to sit through it again, which makes it different than every other episode of House.

I like the new guys personally.  I never really cared for Cameron & Chase and Wilson has his moments.  I always felt like they wrote those three as uber bland to make House look more interesting.  Cutner actually has a personality and 13 has her moments of uncertanty which is good and the Huntingtons adds some drama and Taub has had trouble with sexual harassment.  Really they're meant to help House, he is always has and always will be the main focus of the show. 

Although Amber was starting to grow on me, I think this will finally affect the relationship between House & Wilson because at the start of every episode Wilson is all buddy buddy with House no matter what he did the previous week.  This is finally going to change things and add a new dynamic. 

Cuddy definately needs more screen time... and more scenes with a stripper pole.   :o

Well, I think House's confession to Amber while he was in the coma towards the end, that he was tired of being an ass and being in pain, plus the guilt over his involvement over Amber's death might lead House to becoming a little less mean than he has been recently.

Thus far, it seems like the even-numbered seasons are the best ones.  The story arc they had at the end of season one, with the principal from Boston Public was just annoying, as were the Detective Tritter and Foreman quitting storylines in season three.  The Stacey arc was really good, especially when it culminated in Cuddy doing an hilarious impression of Stacey.  "Here's what I think she's going to say.  Oh, I loooove Greg! But if you go against the patient's wishes, you're calling her a liar. And if something goes wrong, I end up in court, having to defend the big mean doctor (albeit with dreamy eyes) who wouldn't believe the nice suburban mom. And even though his cane makes me melt, do the damn surgery. "

I agree, and I too HATED the Chi McBride arc.  That was awful.  However, the best episode of the whole series in my opinion was the one at the end of the first season, I think it was second to last, where he's giving the lecture to the students and tells three medical stories, one of which is his own.  That was the best.

It probably had something to do with Carmen Electra being a guest star.   ;D

I liked the Chi McBride arc because it really showed that House will do whatever he has to for his patients and if he can annoy "the man" all the better.  Plus it showed how House is more important to Cuddy than money.  Plus House's dream/fantasy about saving Chi McBride's life was pretty funny.  Also, season 1 used the best music. 

Random tangent: What did people think about the way that the pilot was filmed with the grey/gold filter.  (I'm not really sure how to word that)
Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: daltysmilth on June 02, 2008, 02:41:13 PM
Well, the pilot was filmed with lower quality film than the rest of the series.  It gave it kind of a Homicide: Life On The Street feel that I kinda liked.

Cut Throat Bitch (the actress not the character) had a nice stint playing a similar character in the first season of Mad Men but they haven't shown her at all this season.  They just keep writing her out of shows.  What's up with that?  Hopefully she's moving on to bigger and better things.

I liked the fact that the patient wasn't exactly the most sympathetic character, lying about having children to save her own skin and so forth, makes it seem more realistic.  I like the PI character, I've seen the guy in dozens of shows and he's always been good, and I wonder how long he'll stick around.  Perhaps he'd be involved with a possible House spin off?

I thought the medical mystery this week was a little sub-par, but that's mostly because it was the b-story, but there were plenty of good things between the doctors.  I, too, like the PI, but it's yet another cast member! No Cameron, barely any Chase, and no Wilson either this week.  They either need to move these guys out for good, or do something with them.  Is it me, or is Chase the only surgeon that hospital has now? :)
Title: Re: House, MD
Post by: PlayMSTie on October 01, 2008, 12:06:03 PM
Pretty much. Poor guy must get tired.  :D

Having House pry into everyone's personal lives is getting extremely annoying. At least he used to have a purpose for doing it -- to solve the puzzle, get the diagnosis, and save the patient -- and so you could see why people tolerated him, even if it was only just barely. Now he just does it to be a jackass. I'm beginning to think that Wilson was all that kept him human. Boundary issues or no boundary issues, they need to get him back NOW.

Yeah, I was immediately suspicious when House broke down during the eulogy.  It was nice to see Wilson back, and even the old team got back together, for as much as perhaps 30 or 40 seconds!  I'm hoping PI character comes back though, just to see the interactions he, Wilson and House would have together, though I'm guessing House will see him as dispensible now.

Honestly, I cannot remember another show that I have ever watched that was this consistently good.

A weaker episode this week (I think last week's episode was actually better than I originally assessed it).  In a weaker season, I might think this was really good, but as is, it was merely enjoyable.  It was still a good way to spend an hour, though - you won't find much better stuff on network TV.  Hopefully, the next episode will be as good as last week's.

Wilson talks and uses a metaphor. House works out the case in his brain and solves it. Wilson recognizes this and says.

"I solved the case didn't I. Now you are going to get up out of the chair and walk out the door with out saying a word." -Wilson
House gets up and walks towards the door.
"nope" - House

This week's episode was pretty good.  I'd give it around a B or a B+.

It was House's performance (or perhaps I should say Hugh Laurie's performance) -- the way he acted completely credulous. Had me fooled too. :)

Nope.  Wasn't fooled at all - come on, the guy faked crying at his father's funeral so he could get a DNA sample! -  and that made it all the more hilarious.

I have to say out of that whole thing, the thing that stuck out most was amber. By that I mean she was seriously creepy. Damn those last 3 episodes could have been a great movie idea. Great writing.

My one question that I have is can house actually return to his practice? I almost wonder if they really throw us off and have him still be in rehab when the next season starts. They're playing the characters very well this season and it seems to me that they probably could get away without house for 4-5 episodes.

Hasn't the dude playing Kutner got a job in Washington or something? I thought that was why he quit the show.  He might be too busy for that sort of thing.  A shame, as I thought he was probably the best of the 3 new characters.

They did the same thing earlier in the season with Wilson (with House as his wacky roomie!) and it was interesting, as well. I'm guessing they're trying to branch out and get us more involved with the secondary characters to create a bit more conflict in the series since House has "straightened up" and they can't fall back on "I'm a druggie and a total wanker but here I am to save the day and learn the world isn't total 100% crap aww shucks!" whenever they need a little tension.

I honestly thought that knocking out the pill-popping would completely destroy the series but this season is still pretty damn good (despite bringing back Thirteen and spending a million billion episodes on Chase killing James Earl Jones).

And I agree, Cuddy is amazing. And adorable. And has great taste in tops with plummeting necklines.

I'm just surprised he didn't give Cuddy shit for pushing him to convince Hannah to have the amputation. If they had managed to find another way somehow, she might have made it.

Overall, a really good episode. Very good interactions and delivery by all. I wonder what the deal is with 13? I'm guessing her Huntingtons is getting worse and she needs to get away from it all for awhile, or something. Guess we'll find out in the fall.

Saw it today and liked it.  I was a little worried about where they were going, playing up the drugs and alcohol angle, but I guess they pulled a swerve on us at the end there.  I want to be optimistic about Cuddy/House (Huddy?) but with this show, it never really works out for anybody.  :)

And the Olivia Wilde thing: she asked to have some time off next season to film Cowboys vs Aliens, and producers adapted her storyline to fit it.  Unless it's more permanent, I'd be surprised if it was her Huntingdon's.

Welp, as House so aptly put it, "The bitch is back!"

I would have loved to have seen House "euthanize" Thirteen with a baseball bat. Did she dye her hair in prison?

It's odd, really - she's supposed to be this tragic character but I can't seem to draw up any sympathy for her. Hell, I have more sympathy for Taub and before he broke up with his wife (an excellent episode IMO) I thought he was a piece of office furniture.

I guess Thirteen just doesn't have any flaws or troubles I can relate to.

yeah now that 13 is back i may not watch the show next season.  I really liked Masters and really don't want to see her sidelined for more 13.  Am i the only one who doesn't like the fact that they broke up House and Cuddy.  i hate this will they wouldn't they stuff on TV shows and i am not sure what the point of putting them together after six years was if they were just going to brake them up after less then one season.  Also i found House to be much more likable when he was with Cuddy and their relationship gave Hughe Lurie a great chance to show how great he is at comedy as well as drama.

I am so sick of every freaking show making you wait season after season to see certain characters finally together, only to rip them apart for "good" drama mid season.  House and Cuddy were working together, sure they were not perfect, but who is.  I know House is not mr. perfect, but does anyone here think that Cuddy is perfect?  I don't.  It is like her mom said, who else would put up with either one of them?  I know everyone loves to watch a show and fall in love with the possibility of certain characters getting together, rooting for them for years.  But does anyone, ANYONE enjoy them getting broken up over stupid crap?  Personally I wanted them to stay together.  I liked sober somewhat happy House with over bearing control freak Cuddy.  I thought the ways they were working through their personal life getting mixed with work life was making the show interesting.  We get it.  House likes drugs and hookers.  Been there, done that... A lot on this show.  Time for some new material.  Next thing you know, they will hook up House and 13 just to piss everyone off.  Someone gets sick and almost dies every single episode.  Is this not enough drama for us?

Unfortunately, all good dramas eventually turn into soap operas. That has happened to House, M.D.

Although I still enjoy the show (mostly), I think it jumped the shark when House was at the mental institution. That was an awesome episode, but the show hasn't been as good as before that since.

On Tuesday morning, Fox gave House fans something to cheer about with the announcement that the medical drama would return for an eighth season. But later that day, star Hugh Laurie broke the news that the next season will also be the last at least for him.

The end of that (eighth) season looks like the end of the show, Laurie explained in an interview with the BBC's Radio Times. "That's as far as they've got me for.

Of course, its hard to imagine the series continuing without its leading man. A source close to the production would only tell the New York Post that it's premature to speculate beyond Season 8.

For now, House fans can take heart the seventh season is still underway. Heres a sneak peek for the penultimate episode, After Hours, along with Laurie's take on the on-screen drama:

House Shocker: A 'Disappointed' Lisa Edelstein Calls It Quits

House fandom, brace for impact: Dr. Cuddy is checking out.

Lisa Edelstein — whose long-term contract expires this month — has opted not to return for the show’s eighth and likely final season.

In a statement, the actress says, “After much consideration, I am moving onward with a combination of disappointment at leaving behind a character I have loved playing for seven years and excitement of the new opportunities in acting and producing that lie ahead.”

Fox and NBC Universal declined to comment.

Back in March — when the future of House itself was up in the air — Edelstein told TVLine, “Nobody at work seems to think it won’t [return]. Everybody wants to come to a deal, and I certainly am looking forward to a Season 8.”

In an interview last week with BlogCritics.org, exec producer Katie Jacobs said she would “not rest” until Edelstein was on board for an eighth season. “Lisa is such a valuable member [of the cast],” she said. “I challenge any other actress on TV to do what she does seemingly effortlessly. She goes between drama, comedy, intelligence, sex appeal… It’s certainly not my plan or David’s plan or the creative team’s plan to not have Lisa in the show.”

There’s talk Edelstein was a victim of belt-tightening at the show. In the aforementioned interview, Jacobs acknowledged that, “For seven seasons we managed to avoid getting the phone call to make cuts in our budget. But now we’re getting that call.” Perhaps she rejected a low-ball offer — hence her disappointment?

Earlier this month, Edelstein’s costars Robert Sean Leonard and Omar Epps inked new deals to return to the show. Hugh Laurie, Olivia Wilde and Peter Jacobson were already contracted for the recrently-greenlit Season 8, leaving Jesse Spencer as the only remaining question mark.

The news comes a week before the show’s current season — arguably Edelstein’s meatiest yet — comes to a close. It’s unclear if the finale sets the stage for a possible Cuddy departure, but that seems highly unlikely.

Thoughts? Stunned speechless? If you’re capable of forming a coherent thought during this emotional time, hit the comments!

No Cuddy for the eighth season? And only one episode left in the current season? Looks like she's going to be hastily written out of the show - and then what?

I have a sinking feeling in my gut that the last season is going to be nothing more than a quick grab at some cash and will end with a whimper. Sigh.

Well looks like I picked the right time to stop watching.  i thought the House and Cuddy together episodes were some of the best they had done,but once they they broke up and Thirteen came back I stopped watching.  I really hope they don't hook House up with Thirteen in season eight.  i guess it doesn't matter since I am done with the show.

I'm getting the feeling they're gearing House up for a very tragic end, with him spiraling more and more out of control, and now without Cuddy there for even the promise of getting back together they'll be hard pressed to find anything convincing to anchor the character.  Hell, he's practically in a show by himself now.  The past few episodes he's only tangentially involved with the team and the cases.

I really don't want to give up on the show, but the end of this season has dropped so far below the beginning in terms of enjoyment its hard to take.

Hey do you think Fox will try to keep the show going after next season with Forman?  I mean they have been having him do most of House's work lately on the show.  I don't think it would be a good idea but i could see them trying it given that House is now the only drama Fox has on the air so they may not want to lose it after next season.

I hope not, like I said before, I don't think they know how to write for any characters but House and Wilson.  they can get a season or two out of them but after that they just become stale.

Well they have been having Forman act more and more like House so i can see them trying it and failing after one season.

Well looks like I picked the right time to stop watching.  i thought the House and Cuddy together episodes were some of the best they had done,but once they they broke up and Thirteen came back I stopped watching.  I really hope they don't hook House up with Thirteen in season eight.  i guess it doesn't matter since I am done with the show.

Ooh... maybe they'll have Thirteen die in the eighth season!  ;D

:happydance:

I'm getting the feeling they're gearing House up for a very tragic end, with him spiraling more and more out of control, and now without Cuddy there for even the promise of getting back together they'll be hard pressed to find anything convincing to anchor the character.  Hell, he's practically in a show by himself now.  The past few episodes he's only tangentially involved with the team and the cases.

I really don't want to give up on the show, but the end of this season has dropped so far below the beginning in terms of enjoyment its hard to take.

I can see it ending one of two ways - House dies, but everyone realizes how inspired they were by his life (or something). Or! He quits being a mopey bastard, gets over Cuddy, and lives a moderately healthy lifestyle (doubt it).

Or House beats Thirteen to death with a baseball bat like he promised to.  ;D

I liked seeing little hints at how House would cope with being in prison, but ultimately this episode really didn't hold my attention too well.

Plus I really have no clue yet how this season is going to go. We know that Cuddy isn't coming back (since Lisa Edelstein left the series for good, and this is the last season), but I was really expecting some closure; hopefully that doesn't come any later than this next episode or its going to feel like they're dodging around the problem.

I really hope they don't try to pair up House with a new love interest, either.

I loved that ending. Considering the title of the next episode I thought Wilson would die. Seeing he survived and looked down at the end I thought "Suicide?" then that popped up. I just just started laughing so hard. Then Wilson laughed and I knew he would be ok.

Only that the russian wife got her green card and left after House tried to hide it. Park and Chase (sounds like a board game) may be developing a slight love interest. She dreamed of him once then later in the ep he had a sex dream about her.

It was funny in the ep. Park was embarrassed about having a dream about Chase. He kinda laughed it off. Later he is in the lounge and she comes in. They talk then start making out and she starts removing his clothes. There is a knock on the door. Chase wakes up to find Park at the door. He had fallen asleep on the lounge couch.

Alright finale.  Given that they weren't given proper notice to organize the final story arc, and weren't even given a 2 hour finale, it was as good as it could have been.

Call me ignorant, but I'm pretty sure they knew it was the last season for at least a year.  I mean, Hugh Laurie said he certainly wasn't going to do any more seasons over a year ago since it keeps him away from his family so much.  Or was their last season cut short by an episode or two? It's certainly not like they were cancelled.

I found the finale quite satisfying.

I won't go into any details in case someone hasn't caught it yet, I'll only say that I'm glad it properly ENDED! I would've been incredibly annoyed if it had been one of those ambiguous "keep the fans debating" endings like, say, The Sopranos had. And I had this ever-present fear that's how they were going to end it.

Those SUCK! Oh, cliffhangers are fine if they're done well and get resolved three months later when the next season starts. However, when it's time to end the story, it's time to END IT. Speculating, analyzing, and discussing what might have happened is only fun if you're eventually gonna find out whether you were right or wrong.

Leaving the ending unknown is not poetic or deep: it's cheap, gimmicky, and lazy. Well, at least in my opinion.

Well, this isn't really talking about the show anymore, but I disagree.  There are times when that's annoying, but I think if it speaks to what the show is really about then it's fine.  Angel's works really well, because they might or might not survive, but that really isn't the point: the point is, they are going to keep fighting against impossible odds (and, win or lose, in a blaze of glory), just like they've always have.  It just happens to be a lot more dire and immediate than before.  (of course, the meaning of that one isn't ambiguous, just the main character's fates).

Besides, I don't think everything needs to be spelled out.  Don't you think by making everything concrete and certain, it can drain things of mystique.  Is a mystery only worth while if it's solved?

See, to me, that's STILL at least an ending. Or with Inception where the point was that he longer CARED if he was in the real world or not. That ended what was torturing him, so it was an ending to his story.
