    Holy shit, it's that time already?

    I guess I'll have to have a talk with my professors and let them know that the new fall season is starting, and they need to ease the fuck up.

    Several sources have early House spoilers and as such you may want to avoid any articles. One in TV Guide, I think, spoiled quite a few plot points.

    This. Will. Be. Awesome.

    I wonder if his old crew will come back after the Survivor elimination thingy. That would be funny if they did all that and nobody got the job.

    Can someone sum up the end of last season for me? I fell off the train a bit at the end there.

    I really hope he gets new people. I hate it when shows do something huge and then in a future episode are like "SIKE".

    I *hate* it.

    Well the last episode of Season 3 basically has Foreman quit, Chase being fired, and Cameron quitting. However, House gave the feeling that he was ok with it and it was 'time for a change'

    I'm really hoping they move the focus away from the old team. I mean they were fine characters and all, but it's time to move on. If they are still major characters, I think it will detract from the interaction between House and whomever his new team ends up being.

    Foreman realized he couldn't be the type of doctor House was and decided to quit, Chase and Cameron left shortly after because House was too stubborn to ask Foreman to come back. Then Chase and Cameron fell in love <3.

    House is still House though.

    Does he still pop vicodin like breathmints?
    I've only seen the first season. I'm curious to know if they play with the vicodin issue in later episodes.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    Here's a minute or so preview of House Season 4. Has quite a bit of spoilers regarding the theme of the season.
    I'm very much looking forward to it though.

    House is still House though.

    But is he? Is he really? Am I the only one who found that House's acerbic wit has become noticeably devoid of, well, wit? The show seems to have lost whatever sarcastic sense of humor it had. Now I have nothing against serious dramas, and House definitely is one, but the more I watched the third (and to a certain extent the second) season, the more I felt like his nastiness was entirely humorless and ultimately just cruel. It didn't even seem to accomplish much.

    And the show has used and reused its prominent themes to death. Drug Problem? Been there, done that. Wilson and House on the rocks? Yeah. Trouble with the ladies? A-yup. Discern a significant theme in the show and chances are overwhelmingly in favor of them having done it at least twice.

    Not to mention that the differential is becoming progressively less and less compelling. Most of them seem like window dressing. Now, I realize that a major function of the diagnosis is to provide a vehicle for the drama, but the mysteries have become, in large part, utterly uncompelling. Not to mention that House, who seems like a mad Holmesian genius in the first season, has seemingly lost his Holmes, and his genius, leaving him with only a pretty severe personality disorder. A show about a psycho can be compelling, as long as you're embracing that, and not trying to toss a suit coat and a cane at the nutjob and call him a genius. I want to be *interested* in the mystery, not surprised that it still exists. It just isn't House if you're so caught up in the drug problem/fucked up relationship redux that you don't even notice the diagnosis. Honestly, I found myself so appallingly drawn to House's trainwreck replay (like watching the same two cars smash into each other again and again) that I sometimes could not recall who they were diagnosing, and with what.

    Given that ER has never appealed to me, and that Grey's Anatomy is the worst show on television, it seems apparent that the only medical show worth watching is Scrubs. Honestly, I feel like the show is much more honest, the humor always appeals to me, and the emotion much more compelling. When something dramatic and emotional happens in Scrubs, I feel genuinely pulled by it. In the midst of that comedy, it seems special somehow. Rather than House, where most of it evokes little more than a certain morbid curiosity.

    I kind of lost interest due to everything Alecthar said. Although I like Grey's on occasion :P hope the series gets back to what it was like in S1, although I can't help but think they've run out of freaky diseases.

    House hasn't had a lot of good story arcs. In fact, the only two "arcs" I really remember are Tritter and fat black guy...and the latter sucked, too. Unless maybe the Cameron/Chase arc. That sucked, too.

    I think House works best as a series that doesn't rely on a lot of continuity. Just individual (often formulaic) episodes that are interesting or entertaining. Granted, it will only last for so long at that point...in fact, I'm thinking honestly it may only have another season or two in it (if that).

    It seems like whenever they try to do some kind of overall continuity it seems like they lose a lot of what makes House...well, House. That or the storyline ends up just being shrugworthy.

    I don't think I'd have hated it so much if I hadn't read the TWoP recaps, because daaaamn that's some critical viewing. Sara M really nails the problems with the plot and that guy's character.

    Then the obvious solution is just to watch and enjoy in ignorance. I know its hard for some people here in D&D, but it certainly helps me enjoy some of the less intelligent things in life.

    The penultimate episode of Season 1 that told the story of How She Killed His Leg, in House-teaching-a-class format, was actually the best episode in the whole damn show. I dunno, maybe it has gone downhill some.
