One would think that if one was not a fan of a show, they wouldn't even bother to read thread whose title is the same as the title of the show... unless one was just a noisy troll.

The best course of action is to continue the discussion (or not) and ignore the topic hijack.

yeah me to. 

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.

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.

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 think american shows go to long,  well past the time that they have run the premise into the ground.  I think i could see this show running for five years TOPS before they need to stop and move on.

Yes that is very true.  But there are some that should not have ended :) MST3K need i say more, but that is because they always got new material with each new movie, but anyway i do see your point

i learned that after seeing the whole season of cowboy bebop.  It was a perfect season, i love the show, i want more, and yet if it had ended any other way it would have been a less than perfect show.  Sometimes things must end to be better.  I dont think i would have given mst3k any more than 1 more season either, just one more to make up for the 7th.

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.
