This is an interesting concept. Ever since that commercial declaring Lie to Me as the new House I refused to love Lie to Me like I love House. House just has something that no one can ever have. Today on the other hand, the episodes were back to back. I enjoyed both of them. During House I found myself yelling at the TV trying to get him to back away from the Vicodin. It was a blast from the past, as next week is supposed to be. The next hour Lie to Me came on with not just a medical wonder but a mysterious dead body. I loved seeing how the beginning was connected to the end. Although looking back on it it just seems to good to be true, I find it very entertaining and am looking forward to next week. House is still on the top of my list, followed by Glee (so far), then probably Dollhouse and Lie to Me. Fox is just churning them out.
The Greg House from the past seasons is no more. September 27, 2009
House MD has been my favorite show from the moment I watched a random episode during season 5. Soon after that I bought all of the season that I missed and had a House Marathon all summer long. As House slowly lost his mind at the end of season 5 I began to get worried. Maybe they were wrapping things up.
When season 6 started it seems like there was a whole new House. He was no longer taking Vicodin (which one could argue is as big of a character on the show as House himself). All that was left was the shell of Greg House. Slowly over the course of two hours, it seemed like the writers changed the personality of House altogether. He became more willing to conform, he gave into a form of love, and he learned to forgive, and more out of character of all he learned to trust. His intuitiveness was the same as ever as he “cured” the girl with the music box. This show has been so consistent till now. I like the new House that is coming through, but I really miss the old one. The House that didn’t care.
Now as the Season continues House will quit his job, and Foreman , the House-lite of the bunch will try to step up. That’s all I can tell from the trailers of the new episodes. I look forward to see what new characters they will have to interact with House and what they will do with the old ones. I have heard rumors of Cameron leaving the show, although both her and Chase are supposed to be well integrated for the first couple episodes. Maybe as a final time in the spotlight.
I look forward to seeing what happens tomorrow and hopefully I’ll have enough time for the Lie to Me premiere as well. I’m not getting hone until after six and then I have homework to catch up on and a physics test to study for.
I watched the Dollhouse Season 2 premiere yesterday. September 26, 2009
And I forgot to say something about it.
I watched all of season 1 very enthusiastically, up until the last couple episodes before I became a little bit confused. The character of Alpha threw my understanding a little bit off. After watching the episodes that didnt make sense again, I understood the ending and moved on with my life.
During the summer I learned about the mistake that Fox had made. They had made 14 episodes but only set it to run for three weeks. They began trimming everything and changed up the story line a bit. The last episode that was aired on Fox was not the actualy season finale, it was the 13th episode. To watch the seasom finale, fans have to buy the season 1 dvds. Sorry Fox, I may like Dollhouse, but not enough to buy the series. House is the only thing worthy of my money.
I figure that I should watch that season 1 finale that was never aired and then go back to this premiere and see if I understand it better. If not then I guess I’ll give it a couple chances to catch on and explain itself. If it fails to do this, I’ll drop the series.
Easy said that done though, I have a bit of an obsession with Fox. I watch 4 shows, all of which are on Fox. They have done well in the past couple of seasons. I want to write about House as well, but I’m too tired. I will tomorrow, so it will be done before the second episode makes me biased about my feeling towards the actions of Dr. Gregory House in the Season 3 premiere.
