I Watched An Episode of House…..And I Dug It

Posted by Greg on Apr 12, 2011 in TV |

I watched House for the first time in maybe a year. I’m not even kidding. I think the last episode I watched all the way through was when they killed off Kal Penn. I realize that’s been a long time but I’ve been waning on the show ever since Chase and Cameron started hooking up. Yes, it’s been that long.

The fact of the matter is there have been a handful of (and probably more) good episodes since I watched the show regularly, but I just can’t commit myself to it anymore. Mondays which used to be must-watch House days just are now reserved for something else.

But last night I decided to tune in. To be honest, I wasn’t that disappointed. The plotline about House and the spudgun competition was just plain stupid, as was Taub hooking up with his ex-wife. Just over-the-top sexual banter that is not needed. I like Taub as a character and I really dig Jacobson as an actor, but just no. No need for frank sexual dialogue. The writers of House do it all the time and think they are being cheeky and its just off-putting and sophomoric.

The reason for this editorial is mostly to laud the show’s writers for the plotline with Thirteen (Olivia Wilde) and House. Just great stuff all the way around. To boot, the medical case itself was intriguing and thought-provoking. Shockingly enough, the trailer for next week, which focuses on newcomer Amber Tamblyn and her moral compass actually looks somewhat appealing.

Am I back on board the House bandwagon? Not exactly. Will I watch with a bit more consistency than the last two or three years? Probably.

But don’t hold me to it.
