House fans: Do you like the private investigator?

Hello House fans!


I'd like to know what do you think of the new private investigator Lucas on House played by Michael Weston?


Right now, I can't really decide if I like him or not. In my opinion he doesn't really fit in and House can't pay him forever, consequently he has no reason to hang around. Why should he want to hang out with House?!


So, let me know what you think!

Great post! I definitely got caught up in my review of the episode with House and Wilson, but Lucas was a huge part of the episode. I liked the twist of getting him involved after appearing as the coffeemaker repair guy, but I think it hurt the plot besides a few insights into House's issues missing Wilson. It took away from the ridiculousness and drama of House's team investigating cases which is one of my fav parts of the usual episode set-up.

I don't really like Lucas all that much. I think he's annoying. I dunno why. Like you said, I don't think he really fits in all that much. He just doesn't seem like the type that could stay on House for a very long time. I hope he will just be in and out, kinda like how the forty or so people were at the beginning of the fourth season They were just there for a little bit, then they went away.

I loved Lucas and especially his affinity for Cuddy. I think possibly that the interest he shows in her could motivate House to finally make a play for Cuddy. Plus, Lucas is cute in a teddy bear, scruffy I need to shave my beard, confident sort of way. I look forward to seeing what fun he brings to the show.

I really like the actor, as well as his character on House. But, as you said, I feel like he doesn't "fit in". I don't know why. There's something about him that's not House-material.
To tell you the truth, I was a bit disappointed with the second episode (yes, I deserve to be flogged)... I thought they could have made Lucas' presence a bit funnier, and more "Oh, that is soo Housicious to hire someone like him". Did anyone else feel like he took the spotlight away and turned everyone's attention from the real plot?

I heard a month or so ago that they'd be bringing in a p.i character who if well liked by audiences would get his own house spin off... it will be interesting to see what audience reaction is. I liked him but not really in the whole House dynamic.

Thanks for the comments so far.Shimmym, I didn't like epsiode two that much either. Something didn't seem right to me. And I really missed Cuddy, Cameron and Chase. In the end Cuddy and Chase showed up in one scene. That was just not enough.Yeah, Michael Weston is supposed to get his own House spin-off. Can you believe this? That's the only reason why we saw so much of him in episode 2. But only if fans like him. (okay, bad chances so far) Moreover, I still don't understand how they can make House spin-off without a doctor, why the hell a p. i. ??? Can someone explain that to me, please.

I'm surprised that there are so many bad reviews of him up here, I thought he was great. I laughed out loud at some of the things that he said and i thought his chemistry was great with House, he's smart but doesn't desperately try to get House's approval like all the other characters. And the fact that he is so bad at disguises and lying but good at being a PI is great.
I would watch a spinoff of him on it. But I don't understand exactly where the spinoff aspect would come from, would House be in the spinoff? another doctor?

I think he is a great character and something of a "conscience" for house. I got the feeling that he is that little character sitting on House's shoulder sometimes. To some extent Wilson played that role, though he was an enabler as well. But bottom line...I like the character.

I loved the guy, I think he fits in great. House needs someone who will tell him like it is, but not let him get away with things. And it leaves room for Wilson when he comes back. I think the chemistry is the best one yet with House.
Although I have to say, I've about had it with Cameron, Chase and Cuddy not being as involved. The original cast is who I want to watch, I just can't seem to get on board with the new team. I sometimes feel they ruined the show, but they have had their moments I'll give them that.
But as for the PI he should stay.
