As a huge House fan, it has taken me a number of episodes and conversations with other fans to admit it, but my fellow addicts... House just isn't as good these days.
Of course, it's only fair to take into account it's in its 5th season and is a generally formulaic medical show, but hey, ER stuck around alllllll this time (with many, many shifts in cast), so isn't the incredible Dr. Gregory House cast enough to hold up as long as ER?
I sure was hoping so, and I still adore every awful thing House says, but the medical cases are suffering big time in House-tasticness, and the side plots around the new team are relatively interesting, but seem to just continue to get caught on this track of almost quitting or getting fired and then coming back again and again.
So what does House need for a Season 5 face-lift? Are there medical cases that could bring back the va-va voom or perhaps some more compelling plotlines for House, Cuddy, Wilson and/or the old team or new team that would make you tingle with House excitement again?
