SERIOUSLY, ENOUGH OF THIRTEEN AND FOREMAN ALREADY.

I have nothing against this week's House episode overall. There was all that deep stuff about fufillment and happiness and work and so forth, and also Cuddy and House had good times, which is always entertaining. But, I do have one major complaint. To reiterate: ENOUGH OF THIRTEEN AND FOREMAN.


For the love of GOD, there have been SO MANY EPISODES FEATURING THIRTEEN, AND SHE HAS ONLY BEEN ON THE SHOW FOR A SEASON AND A HALF. A SHORT SEASON AND A HALF. GAH! Let it be clear that I actually do like Thirteen as a character. I think she adds a new female element that the show was lacking (read: someone not attracted to/in love with House), and she's fun when she's on her game. But SERIOUSLY. ENOUGH.


Hopefully now that Foreman has had his little crisis and this drug trial arc is over with, the season can proceed. It is about bloody time.


My suggestions for the future? (Take note, House staff.) Freaking deal with Wilson! He's been so ignored thus far that the lipstick-stained-cup-by-the-sink shot just really confused me, as opposed to putting me in tune with his grief for Amber because, honestly, Amber who? Wilson has not received due attention (or, like, any since that PI left) and the character has been, well, dull. Which is a shame. Because normally Wilson is amazing.


Other items to address: Taub and Kutner. I don't feel any particular attachment to either of them, but that might be because, oh I don't know, I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THEM. Why not do a feature episode for one of them ever?


More House/Cuddy is always a fun option, although that does tend to work well in small doses and there is only so much time that can be spent going back and forth on the working mom issue.


My final suggestion is simple. DO SOMETHING WITH CHASE AND CAMERON. I am so freaking tired of them popping in for poorly delivered one-liners every other episode. Again, I'm not particularly attached to either of these characters (well, maybe Chase, a bit), but they definitely deserve some more respect. Chase and House have not, to my knowledge, really dealt with their...issues. And Cameron...well, she's always kind of annoying, to be honest. But seriously, giving up after one episode on that leadership thing? LAME. If they're going to be on the show, have them do something. Otherwise...yeah. Not so much.



IN CONCLUSION: Dear House writers and story-persons, PICK UP THE SLACK. (And please, for the love of GOD, no more Thirteen episodes.)

Haha, you have a point there! I actually think the 13-Foreman couple is really sweet, so maybe that's why I didn't pick up this emphasis on 13. But, you are right, especially about Wilson! He's awesome, and when I saw that lipstick scene my first thought was that he was seeing a new woman, haha. Also, for some time now I've throught that Taub is really awesome! While not being completely immune to House [who is?], he stands up an aweful lot to House, and I'll be nice if they can fashion him into a male 'Cuddy'! Haha. Kutner is just boring, and you are right, again, so much more could be done with him, he's a great actor. Only part I disagree with is Camaron and Chase. Good riddence, I say, they irritated the hell out of me =P

I don't care about ANY of the new crew. 13 is sort of alright, Kutner I have no opinion on, and I actively dislike Taub. I miss the old team : /
I agree that the show needs more Wilson. He's just so cute.

Definitely more Wilson and less 13/Foreman. I think Taub has potential and they really haven't treated Kutner's character fairly.
But most of all BRING BACK CLINIC DUTY!!!

second on the clinic duty, if you remember, it was the first thing that was ever discussed in the show (like really, the vary first thing was about him needing to do clinic hours) and it was always my favorite part of the show (he would basically call 3 people in a row idiots, and thats funny).i miss Kutner as a random wacky idea generator, at first i thought he was the only person who liked using metaphor solutions more then house. he also hasn't done anything to endanger his own or a patents life (like lighting another one on fire) for a while, and i miss that too- that was his appeal, and they haven't showcased it in a while.Taub . . . i got nothin, hes pretty unremarkable, even that he cheated on his wife isn't too far from the normas for 13 . . . she was fun when she was self destructive and house was using that to his advantage, but im sick of her as the focus; shes a walking tragedy, i get it, move on.
