For various reasons I wasn’t at Ultimate on Tuesday, so I found myself in a moment of nostalgia turning on House Season 6.
Turns out – House is actually crazy. As in committed to a mental asylum. About time really. The premise of the double-episode is House coming to terms with this, slowly recovering and developing the ability to relate to other human beings.
He goes through some iterations of devious schemes to convince them he’s sane before knuckling under and reforming.
Which means, I expect, that the people he’s really fooling are the audience. To think that the writers would allow the essential dynamic of the show to change is laughable. You’d need to be either very optimistic or very simple to buy into their ploy. My bet is that within 3 episodes it’s essentially business as usual – I’m prepared to put money on it.
And that is why I hardly watch any TV.
