House Report Card: Everybody Grades (6/29/2012)Coming in very late because I avoided most blogs and such...in mourning. But I'm giving the series an "A", not because it was successful across all the shows over all the years, but because it succeeded in doing so much more than most shows ever contemplated. Much of what viewers have complained of as being weak was just not understood. I have been seeing bits of foreshadowing in scenes that I only understand in retrospect. The writers had intentions that I sometimes saw were stymied. Even "weak" characters were chosen to fill a role in the group dynamic, but House and the story always came first. And I have to admit I give the show big points because I dislike atheists just a bit less and understand them just a bit more. They are no less idiots than the rest of us, though.
House Finale Review: Enjoy Yourself (5/22/2012)Clue 3. Wilson tells House he won't take the fall because it's time for House to stop expecting someone else to bail him out. Image Stacey tells House he has been depending on Wilson to be House's moral side all these years, but that's ending. House is forced to be moral, because he won't have Wilson for that. Wilson, seeing House on the steps at the end, protests House will lose his career, everything. House calmly asks Wilson what he wants to do, because he's accepted the sacrifice. FEEL BETTER?
House Finale Review: Enjoy Yourself (5/22/2012)Jessica, you feel robbed because you completely misunderstand what happened. Clues: 1.Patient told House he would take the fall because he has nothing left to lose. House is amazed and says that by dying the patient can give what he never did in life. It give him the idea to "die" and sacrifice his career and probably years in prison just so he can spend the next months with Wilson. 2.House woke up and sees syringes and has been missing for two days. The patient told him he felt God while on heroin. House tried it. It didn't work, so now he's scared to death because he is about to lose everything in this scheme. The dental records are already switched - it can't be done after the fake death. The fire has been set.

Interesting thought about Sylar! (11/24/2009)
I don't think he goes to the dna level. It's been established that the powers come out of the structure of the brain; like tumors [hence Hiro & Charlie's problem] or hard-wiring of the information. That explains why Sylar needs a good "feel" for how his victim's brains are configured. He needs to replicate the physical structure to replicate the ability. But since there is plenty of room in the brain, so much of it unused, he could always place the "chip" in a different location.

I don't think it's Peter who's going to put a hurt on Sylar. What would he use? Samuel is a pretty big fish and maybe he and Sylar will duke it out. But as for Hiro's reference to Watson; I agree he's thinking in terms of Sherlock Holmes. In fact, Ando would be Hiro's Watson, so maybe he's thinking that Ando is in trouble, as in a past situation. Re Claire & Gretchen; that is just bad writing. What, girls are so emotional and irrational that they can't remember what they've just been through? And these are supposedly intelligent girls.On the other hand, I've completely gone from not liking Lauren to liking her a lot.
What I'm waiting for is for Angela to find out that her "friend" put the hit on her dear son. Angela is not the forgiving type!
Into Asylum (4/7/2009)
The trouble with those who insist Sylar simply used telekinesis to get out of the car is that he only had a second while Danko went for his gun. The car door never opened, wasn't left open, and we didn't hear it shut. How did Sylar get out? And levitating to the top of a multistory building in a second isn't just levitating, it's basically flying. If it isn't fairly easily understood, that's a fault of the writers. We shouldn't have to work so hard to figure out the "rules". All that said, I also think it's worth the trouble to follow the show. I would hate to have to wait 2-3 years between movies to see Zach Quinto in Star Trek movies because Heroes got canceled. That would be cruel and unusual punishment.
