While I’ll keep posting everything I find related to House(everything I find and am not too lazy to post of course 😀 ),I won’t be watching the next 2 episodes as I didn’t watch episode 3 either because I hate where the show is going in terms of characters and I feel insulted by this (it’s my personal opinion so there’s no reason to throw shit at me for having an opinion). Now,I like the humor ,I love the cases(I even like the ones in Season 4 even when many had problems with it)and this show is,for me,not all about the House/Cameron the House/Wilson interaction or anything like that BUT I do feel that,for a loyal viewer(and by the way,those are the ones that bring u the money DS !) who sees things the way I do(and just because the Huddy people have taken over the official forum by bullying everyone out and virtually screaming at every little non-existent thing like a 12 year old girl doesn’t mean that most people are into this thing) characters are important and this change ,while totally understandable ,was made in a slightly wrong way.
I mean,for example,I’ll be the first one to admit that I personally don’t hate 13’s character as so many do(and I understand them perfectly).I think that ,if the writers manage to turn her into a unique character instead of,as it was in season 4,turning her into a Cameron clone ,she can be quite interesting to watch BUT I will never ,ever,ever prefer having her over having Cameron ,I can never,no matter how opened I am, care more about 13 or Kutner or Taub(who is kinda’ invisible anyway) over Cameron or Chase and even Foreman (who I never really liked). The show House MD is successful because of the lead character and Hugh’s performance,because of the writing,the intelligence,the drama,the humor but also because of the 3 original ducklings and Wilson so taking one factor out of the equation ,especially one that can’t emotionally be replaced after so much time,may and did cause a drop in ratings and overall quality because,again,no matter how good the show is in the end people always look for something that can emotionally draw them to it (as it happens in all aspects of life) and the characters represent that.
I am finding myself(as many others ,I’m sure) in a position where I have this great show in terms of acting,plot,etc and that I really want to watch but that I end up not watching because the characters involved in telling the exciting medical stories,the jokes and so on are being messed up ,replaced and made to feel and think in ways that I personally find illogical. Sure,I’m not a writer and no one gives crap on what I think should or shouldn’t happen.Hell,I don’t even live in the US so I don’t contribute to the ratings in any way but I am a fan,one of those who supports the show in my community and online,who recommends this show to others not only from my country but others too,one of those who buys the DVD’s ,watches the promo’s ,discusses the show and makes this show popular because in the end the fan base can turn the show into a legend or some forgettable piece of art(ex : Gossip Girl – bad ratings in first season but with a growing ,loyal and implicated fan base which made it popular and drew attention to it so this second season I’m hearing the ratings are going up)
Now episode 5 is coming and it’s annoying me to see that ,in half a season,we’ll probably get to know more about 13 ,a new character that most don’t even like, than we learned about Cameron or Chase (2 very popular characters) in 4 seasons while the original ,loved characters have 1 minute of screentime every 2 episodes.This makes me feel insulted by the writers and by DS and KJ especially after that one interview when DS said something along the lines of ” the fans think they want something but it’s not really what they do want” to which I say “Oh really? How’d u get to that brilliant conclusion ? Are u God?).
Then in episode 6 we’ll get the peak of the Huddy problem which I find totally illogical and stupid. I mean,come on, even my mother thinks it’s stupid and she’s no shipper but a great fan of the show,she likes everyone the same(well,she mostly only cares about House :D).Even my mother thinks House and Cuddy (Hugh and Lisa in fact) have no romantic/sexual chemistry and she sees them more like she sees House and Wilson,as friends. What’s even more annoying is that I think it’s illogical to fall in love with someone after 20+ years of not being in love with them and after u had your chance but neither wanted it and House actually fell hard for Stacy.But the most annoying thing is that everyone treats it like there’s been this tension,this subtext ,this dancing around ever since the beginning when that’s not true,House and Cuddy and Wilson were 3 old friends who also had a professional relationship,Cuddy wasn’t even that involved in the first 2 seasons,Cuddy even supported the idea of House opening up to Cameron (remember the Love Hurts episode when she actually tried to help him not screw it up?).And now? now they’re showing this down our throats and treating the beautiful ,subtle connection and attraction between House and Cameron(and the amazing natural chemistry that Hugh and Jennifer have) like it never existed .Also,this ruined Cuddy as a character,it’s like she has no other purpose than being the other half in the Huddy and House’s sexual harassment object. Since I also find this as insulting to me and I’ve come to hate Cuddy ,hate LE,hate KJ and DS because of it when I used to like all of them,I will not watch that episode too.
I’ll watch episode 7 because it has Cameron and Chase(whose relationship is stupid too because Cameron can’t fall in love with Chase just cause she’s sleeping with him after it was made clear in past seasons that she’d never fall for him + as much as I actually thought they were a cute couple in real life,on screen JMo and JS have no chemistry) in it and because it has scenes where House and Cameron are actually in the same room talking but I don’t know what will happen afterward.
Ok,I know this annoyed and bored many (well,the 1 or 2 people who actually read all my rant)and I do realize this is just a show but when I invest something in a hobby or in anything I expect to at least be respected and I feel I am not so it really,really bothers me.
Now on to the Joy promo pics (too bad I’m not going to be able to watch it,Hugh looks really ,very hot in it)
