House > House Review: Two (Terrible) Stories > Comments Page 2
Totally agree. The writers should be embarrassed by this episode. I was thinking the same thing while watching it... It was as if the writers suddenly realized they had a deadline the next day and cobbled together this dreck.
Personally I've never been fond of Cuddy (a mediocre administrator and she treats badly those who aren't her pets) but I thought she was a good character in the first two seasons when she did a better job of keeping House in line. But since the show started putting them together in a romantic relationship at the end of season 3, first Cuddy and then House have been severely hurt as characters.
Just awful. The kids were cute but it was annoying that they were all about Huddy once again. The medicine has become an afterthought.
I don't know if the show can recover from the bad Huddy episodes this season but I do know it never will unless they end the Huddy relationship.
you can only vote once. just tried it. i gave this episode three stars, because of the kids in the classroom. their disbelief that there was a doctor like house, and that he would do the things he says he did was enjoyable because as a viewer, you knew he did. but that was it. the little love-thing between the kids at the principals office was sweet but other then that it was boaring.
there was no medical case, just some strange mood-swing on cuddys part. giving her and house a pregnancy-scare would have been better, given he was already surrounded with children. but nope. we ended up in an argument about the garbage and toothbrush. thankfully the next episode with the serial-killer seem to be an improvment
I hated it. Almost no time spend on the diagnostic stuff or in the hospital. Tons of time spent on a bench. Huge % of the talking being two kids in a pointless, boring boring boring script asking House to talk about why a girlfriend is annoyed and why a laptop was stolen. Hated it 1/3 of the way through, thought surely it would get better, it didn't. Complete waste of time. Was it writer's week off? Actors unavailable week? WTF? Awful. If it was a pilot, it'd be a show that didn't get past the first episode.
House asking the pubescent girl "who put sand in [her] vagina" was the for sure, 100% Jumping the Shark moment.
I disagree with almost everyone here (and the review btw. I liked the ep, alot. For those that want the old House back, i'm sorry, but i dont think you comprehend the point of the series. He is growing, and this is what i expect to see in season 7..A House who is actually trying to be better..people progress in real life, if they are lucky they become better. This is wht we're seeing this season (which begun last season). Also, please keep in mind that 1) Cuddy was not breaking up with him, she just needed a little space. and 2) alot of that was told from House's POV so he probably exaggerated some of it..either way, the concerns Cuddy had was perfectly legitimate and House showed how far he has come by acknowledging that.
i may be in the minority here, but again, i think the ep was well done, quite entertaining, and showed great strides in the Huddy relationship. And no, im not some silly little fangirl, im just a longtime fan of the show, whose been paying attention over the year

I'm afraid that what we are seeing is a gradual watering down of both House and Cuddy. We all love them, but can we love them as a couple? Not sure about that, especially with the wishy washy type of dialogue we were treated to this week. The thing about House that I love is his innate snarkiness. The thing is to figure out a way to retain the character's integrity while letting him grow through some of his organic effed-uppedness! Not an easy trick to pull off.
Yeah, what she said (Kim). Completely agree about Cuddy but with a slightly different angle, ie I don't want them to break up. I wish the writers would just follow the characters instead of taking these strong, independent personalities and put them into a standard tv relationship even though it makes both Cuddy and House almost unrecognizable.
I said it and I'll say it again: House sounds more and more not like an intelligent person, but like a stupid person imagines that an intelligent person sounds.
Unrelated: I would totally dig an NPH cameo as a now adult Doogie Howser.
Cuddy is full of remorse, and it is most delicious.
I Love the show. I'll start with that. But this was absolutely, positively the worst show I've ever seen .wanted to turn it off, but out of loyalty, I could not. I feel I wasted one hour of my life I will never get back. The acting was horrible, the story line was awful, and I hope I never see that one again. Next time, in the face of a time crunch, put on a rerun.
I have to say that this whole season has been a disappointment to me. Did they change writers with those fired from some long dead day time soap? I am really against the Cuddy/House relationship because now House has none of the "bitterness" that he had to begin with that drew me to the show. Cuddy is now written as a whiny, sniveling, jump into bed at every chance, "gotta have my man" baby instead of the strong, independent woman that she was originally portrayed to be. I wish that they would break up the couple and bring back the good story lines. I want to see the old House!!!!!!
whoever wrote this episode needs to be FIRED. this episode was a joke, they've ruined Cuddy's character and made House too soft. So embarrassing.
I liked the bossy little girl and boy caught pre-kissing. I get that the writers, in a "Kids Say the Darnedest Things" kind of way, figured it would be fun forward kids saying things to House no one else could. I suppose I even get that in a real relationship, one partner could accept the idiosyncrasies of the other beforehand and still expect them to make some effort along the way.
That said, though, the Huddy fight seemed, like the others of late, as bad and as manufactured as the review. In other words, I can't disagree with the reviewer, but still enjoyed the kids (both in the classroom and in the principal's office).
Isn't it also the problem with a personality like House's that as self-centered and frustrating as he is--on purpose!--the kids, for instance, were far more interested in what he had to say than any of the others waiting patiently?
Interesting, because I tried and it doesn't work with mine :) The episode is rating 3.4. That's very low and it's explained by the fact that even some Huddy fans didn't enjoy it.
Please, all you have to do is just clear your browser and you'll keep rateing over and over again!
Seriously, Liz? Over 40 people voted. 40. With no significant increase. If there was any cheating going on, that number would be a LOT higher. You are just bitter because most people don't agree with your deluded, biased point of view.
Um, no, you CAN'T rate it over and over again, Liz. That's why the website demans you have cookies and java enables before voting. Why don't you go read some fanfiction, considering it's the only place where your delusional pairing will ever happen?
BTW did you know that you can rate over and over again? The rating is pretty useless then, we all know Huddy fangirls will click their fingers off just to make their pairing look better than it is ;-)
The problem of this show is Huddy. What I hate most is that Cuddy constantly wants House to be someone he is not. She wants him to change. Why be with him when she can't accept him like he is?!
And that TPTB can't stick with anything, there's no consistency anymore.
I couldn't believe the script included two references to House performing analingus on Cuddy. That's not something you see on primetime every day.
You obviously missed the point. This isn't like episodes 6-8 (I do agree with you about those). Now, because in "Now What" Cuddy said she didn't want him to change, she suddnely can't get upset at him for being, well, a man? I think the writer explained it perfectly in this week's vlog: it's technically a minor issue all couples face at one time or another but the parties involved (women, in this case) tend to blow it out of proportion depending on how much they care about their partner. The more you love them, the more these little things are going to bother you.
And it all comes down to the fact that Cuddy IS insecure and has always been as to whether House truly loves her or not. That's why, in the premiere, she wanted to hear him say "I love you", that's why she was protecting Rachel from him (she fears the kid will get attached to him and he will "go away"), that's why, in this episode, she's shown, once again, she's insecure, by believing House doesn't care about her.
I agree House has always had faults ann Cuddy said she loves him anways and wants him to be himself now she says she don`t want that. and Amber`s Character (forgot her name right now) shes annyoing she tells on them for everything. hope she leaves soon. and I thougt that girl was being abuse but I was wrong she was hit during hockey. this wasn`t the best episode it was just ok.
I totally agree. Cuddy was bad written in this episode. She knows who House is, she dumped a boyfriend in order to be with House. So why is she surprised now?!
I'm a Cuddy fan, but I didn't like this story at all.
