GO GREGORY GO
I actually hated tonights House. I don't know why...the story just kinda...sucked.
ohi i'm house
ohi lemme inject you with this
Did he almost get fired... AGAIN?!
oh house youre a loose cannon but youre the best doctor weve got
watching it right now...
Damn 3 pg essay....
torrents to the rescue!!
I don't get why everyone raves about House. It's good for about 3 episodes, but then it gets same-y and the act gets old. Maybe there's something else I've missed.
Yeah I know what you mean. Give me Greys Anatomy any day. Oh who am I kidding, Scrubs all the way!
6-9 b/c w/o da dash its 69

It just took me 5 minuites to work out which tab was singing at me
Hugh Laurie... nuff said
I really like HouseMD, the actors are really good and the conversations are gold
Yes, and the plot and story is just a unimportant, secondary little thing that does nothing more than be a backdrop for the really good actors to stand in front.
I've seen several episodes, and they were all... the same
The story is always the same, only the illness is different. Everything else is just there as an excuse to have Hugh Laurie act pissed off. Or just pissed.
I liked him better in Black Adder
There's definitely a story line, you just have to watch the episodes from the first one and follow on...
That's not really a storyline, that's only continuity
Little bits and pieces they add to episodes to make them more interesting come back to haunt the writers a couple of episodes later, and seem like a deeper storyline. And before you know it, you're trapped in the web of hints and clues and odds and ends that don't let you write anything that could contradict what you wrote earlier, no matter how lightly you took it at first. In the end, the only thing you can do is just follow the story you accidentally created by trying to add flavour to the show. And if the story gets stuck, just say the last several episodes were a dream
Anyways, humouristic series try to avoid continuity like the plague, because it leads to drama, and humour is "out of place" more and more often, until you have a soap opera on your hands.
Just ask Kristopher Straub. He tried to fight it, but it's impossible.
And after you remove the 5% of each episode spent on "storyline" (as you would call it), or "continuity" (as I call it), the remaining 95% are always... the same...
