House > House Review: Hilson, Take Snooze > Comments Page 2
it wasn't that bad it wasn't the best of House but still not bad Foreman as the dean I can't see that lasting long in my opinion hes like House and he will give into House sooner or later. I think it will get better once Chase and Taub come back because I want to see how Taub will deal with the babies by two diffrent women will pan out. I don't think I will give up just yet its the last season anyways
Well it looks like viewers have spoken. The ratings decline started at the end of season six, when the hilson crap fest was in its highest moments. Now the show comes back with a hilson episode and it gets the worst ratings ever. And don´t blame baseball for that. Baseball happens every year and the drop isn´t that massive.
Seems that it doesn't matter what this year brings, as it's "House's" final year. They can put whatever they want on "House"...just to see how many still watch. And, they're laughing all the way to the bank.
My opinion about Miss Palmer and her so called 'review' oscillate between pathetic and ridiculous. Is this site a joke? I'd say so because I don't get why the admins'd allow a disgruntled fangirl who's not able to get over her obsession for a stupid ship to do reviews otherwise.
Ms.Palmer as others have said,if you can't be bothered to get over Cuddy's departure and analyse the show as it is ,pass the reviewing duty to someone who can.
I actually think Foreman as dean of medicine makes sense,the fact is that if his antics had gotten back to the board he would have been in trouble back when they happened and he didn't so I'd say it all stayed within the team.As to his not being a great doctor,we should keep in mind that he may not be great compared to House but he is certainly more competent than Cuddy was, and as an administrator he will be evaluated on his ability to keep the staff in line and the hospital going not on treating patients.As Dean of medicine he is expected to understand what all the branches of medicine in his hospital are doing and why so he can see if they are heading in the right direction and reaching their educational and research goals ,but that's the extent of it.Also I was happy to see that in spite of everything he does admire House's
House will never change, THAT'S THE CHARM OF THE SHOW!!!! If you want dumb and boring, switch on any other channel! No one can entertain me like Hugh Laurie can, wrinkled shirts and all! Happy to see Wilson and Foreman back, but where was Chase?? I NEED to see that cutie every week also!!!! Funny, I thought I'd miss Cuddy last night, but I didn't.......but I do still miss Cameron. Her leaving was a big loss for the show. I liked last night's show, better than the season opener. House is always my #1 choice!!!!
if you don't like House come and see how Shonda Rhimes is slaughtering a perfect show like Grey's Anatomy with perfect actors. And you will count you're blessings for House producer.
TPTB said last season this season is the final one. Hugh Laurie said it too and added that there are just no more story lines to explore. I did not like Huddy at all and never liked Cuddy as a character very much either, but at least she was an intelligent foil for House. While House has been an inventive and insightful show, especially in the early seasons and Laurie a fabulous actor, the formula is old hat. TV and movies are full of brilliant characters who are second guessed or disbelieved every episode, look at L&O Criminal Intent as an example. Eventually, these eccentric and gifted characters get boring because every time they have to jump through the same hoops to prove themselves over and over in each episode and the viewer KNOWS this is going to happen every time. Sigh...
Your review was excellent. Ignore the haters who will defend this shambles of a show as long as Hugh Laurie is still breathing. He could take a proverbial dump in a scene and these morons would love it. You are right. The show has lost its edge and its purpose. House is now just a miserable man who enjoys being clever and abusive. It has gotten old since he has no humanity whatsoever to showcase. That's why many of us began watching this guy in the first place -- to see those slivers of scenes where we saw he had some heart or care for a fellow human being. Now he is just a nasty man with no focus. Why is Wilson going to be his friend again? I can only hope Wilson is playing House to find out why House did what he did to Cuddy and why House won't change. That would be worth watching but I highly doubt it. We'll likely find out that part of House's issues is he needs a father figure and he sees that in the big-hearted Wilson who forgives House no matter what (i.e. killing his girlfrie
I thought the best part of House was when he was in prison,having to deal with the unsavory characters. When faced with the demands of a couple of the prisoners, I liked the way he could "out think" them, due to his intelligence. The only thing House really cares about is saving a patient, and he will do whatever it takes to make that happen, (like spending more time in prison to save a prisoner), or at least make the patient and the family face the truth. I hope House continues after this season, and I would like to see him called back to the prison hospital for some cases. Or maybe the female doctor at the prison will be hired to work with House since she got fired because of him. I thought they did have a chemistry. (Just my humble opinion regarding HOUSE)
Oh look, another bitter and pathetic LE/huddy fangirl who pretends to be a reviewer! Do yourself (and your liver)a favour and find something else to do. Otoh, go on with this kind of behaviour, I'm always up for a good laught.
House is one of the best shows on TV; if you don't like it then don't watch it!
I actually stopped watching the show, it became so predictable, and when my husband and I starting betting on which organ was going to be the one to fail first, well, it was time to call it quits. House went from being interesting to being about a very unlikeable character. No thanks. My shift ended with this show.
Seriously you need a hobby. I hear bowling is nice. Get a hooker anything but stop pretending to write reviews of House.
Ratings for the first episode made it the third highest show on Fox and at the top for all scripted shows. May not be what House once was, but most shows would kill for those numbers.
Because of the overrun of the ball game this week's numbers are meaningless (as reported by REAL television review sites) so we will have to see how it does next week. And yet, unannounced and with fans not sure if it was even going to be on it still stayed competitive.
I am dropping this site from my "to do" list. Huddy sites abound on the internet, I don't go to any of them so why should I come here.
If you don't like the show, please don't recap it. Sarcasm in recaps is OK but bashing everything about the show gets a little old - I didn't even bother finishing the post.
I like the new girl- better than Amber Tamblyn by a mile. I am assuming Chase and Taub will be back. Taub (my least favorite character)has the 2 pregnancies to deal with.
House at its worst is still better than most of the crap on TV IMO.
Laurie is, if not the best, is one of the best actors on tv. It is more entertaining watching him just throw a ball while thinking than the dead pan mumbling csi "actors" and not funny actors. Hope it makes it thru the season.
Your bitterness is really sad, your precious huddy soap is gone, deal with it or find something else to watch! Plenty of soap operas out there are waiting for you.
I gave up watching this program a while back, although I love Hugh Laurie, and seeing that the conceited, chip on his shoulder, Foreman has been given authority, I definitely won't be going back to it. Come back to England Hugh and do some of the great comedy programs you used to do.
I agree with most of what @immortalfrieza said, although I'll admit I wanted a lot more from "Twenty Vicodin" than what we actually got but i've probably just been spoiled by the immense quality of season 6's opener "Broken" which opened with House in a similar situation.
This was a pretty good episode overall and i can't see why everyone seems to hate it.
Dr. Park (Charyne Yi) Can't act, At all. Get rid.
Wow. You really don't like this show do you? Cut it some slack, will you? Geez.
It is undeniable that House is no longer the show that it was in its glory days of Season 1-3. But then again, which show is able to even last for 7, now 8 seasons without changes? Even the best shows have a drop in quality as the seasons progress - it's natural. Especially since the novelty factor of the show wears off. And a procedural drama like House will always seem repetitive. I, for one, think that it is still much better than other shows out there. Just because it has changed, doesn't mean it sucks.
And since most of the cast's contracts have been cut by a few episodes, it makes sense that House's team doesn't appear for a while longer.
I think it was necessary for the House-Wilson reconciliation to be quick, max 2-3 episodes. This is by virtue of the very fact that Cuddy is now gone. House-Wilson interaction will have to bear much of the weight of the show now.
And House has to get
While I would like to see more originality from the writers I am willing to bide my time. Wilson's forgiveness is in character, though I agree it came too fast, and while House continually insisted he hadn't changed methinks he doth protest too much. In light of his going to prison in the first place (perhaps due to guilt) there is no escaping that he took at least some responsibility for his actions.
I hope to see more of Michele Marsh's Betty. Does anyone else recognize/remember her from Fiddler on the Roof?
Foreman as the new Dean is completely unbelievable -- maybe Vogler is back quietly and has anonymously underwritten him -- I always did want to see House save his (Vogler's) life. No official inquiry was made but Foreman's stealing Cameron's article was common knowledge around the hospital. No secret was made of him stabbing Cameron with an infected syringe, either. Rumors by the time those stories made their way to the board, probably, but enough rumors of that nature do
I'm in full agreement that House is no longer the amazing, #1 drama it was 2 or 3 years ago. However, that certainly doesn't make it bad by any means. If you consider each episode on its own merits rather than comparing them to the rest of the series, the vast majority remain better than 90% of other shows on TV every week, which is really all you can ask for. Sure the writing's come down quite a bit from the first few seasons, but it's still one of the funniest and deepest shows on TV despite the drop off.
Geez cut the show some slack already! Frankly sick of the negativity I keep hearing. Yeah Wilson forgives too easily but that's consistent with the character. If you think you can do better go apply for a writing job at House.
Reviewer, I seriously doubt you like this series.
