House

I think my icon says it all, but...

Seriously? They fried a guys brain and purposely erased his memories because they thought he was suffering from a broken heart. *And* didn't bother to see if he was telling the truth. SERIOUSLY? At that moment, suddenly, all of BSG's story lines started making sense. I really thought it was the resolution of the Tritter arc that was going to piss me off, but, no, it was the patient of the week story. Have the writers run out of anything resembling a plausible case? Or are the sharks waiting at their door?

As for the Tritter arc, I'd be enraged if it made any sort of sense. They revealed that he had a drug addict in his life and that's what made him persecute anyone he thinks may be one - then they did nothing with that revelation. And we get him wishing House well after his case is thrown out? Huh?

What did I like? The judge rocked. She said what we've all been thinking and I loved her line about House not likely to be flooding the streets with cocaine. And I was relieved to find out what I hoped to be the case - House was faking it. Accept I think he was sincere with the apology which I Wilson didn't necessarily deserve for recent events, like trying to label him an addict and push him into rehab, but he has been treated like crap in the past and he's earned an 'I'm sorry' for putting up with a lot.

House made Cuddy lie? Did I miss him pointing a gun to her head?

Ok, the hug was pretty adorable too, especially his not knowing how to react to it.

In House related news, Jesse Spencer and Jennifer Morrison are engaged. Which given Cameron's attitude towards Chase tonight proves she can act. ;)

And I don't know if people are spoilerphobic about casting for the show so just in case... Dave Matthews will be appearing as - surprise! - a musician with a mysterious illness in an upcoming ep. Normally when I see a pop/rock star cast on a show I think stunt casting but a) it probably helps to have a musician play a musician and b) he's acted before and isn't bad. And, hey. maybe we'll have a dueling musicians thing between he and Hugh. ;-)

My mother has been watching House, and has been very unhappy with this season, and I gather that's a rather common reaction? I saw a few episodes in reruns with her when I was home, and I have to ask: did they tip the balance a little too far on the sympathetic/bastard scale with both House and Cuddy? Because in the episodes I saw, they both came across as people who basically deserve every lousy thing that happens to them, and I'm not sure that's the take-home I'm supposed to be getting.
I don't go to any boards or comms for House so I don't know what the consensus for the season seems to be, but, on my Flist, there has been a fair share of criticism of characterization (declaring House an addict when the show established he wasn't in the first season) and story arcs (the persecution of House and anyone associated with him by Det Tritter). Between this and BSG I wonder where the love has gone? ;)

I adore Hugh Laurie so I will watch to the bitter end, but there have been a couple eps this season where I did not like House at all. Yeah, he can be a selfish bastard, but when it got to the point that he allowed his best friend to sacrifice his career and didn't seem to care or was willing to let patients die to prove a point it went way too far. And Cuddy? I don't know what the hell they are doing with her. From week to week she changes her position on House and whether to protect his ass or throw him to the wolves. And her 'You made me lie' statement this week pissed me off because he NEVER asked her to perjure herself - she made that choice on her own and she's basically blackmailing him now over it.

I never thought the day would come when Cameron would seem the most sensible of the lot.
