Too much Taub. Way too much Taub. Especially too much Taub and Mrs. Whiney Passive Aggressive Taub. Worst of all Taub and M.WPAT HAVING SEX. And talking about it. Bleccch!!! I know some of you like him. Some of you really like him. But do you think this does ANYTHING to make his character appealing? Did he even get one good funny line in the middle of all that? And what does the ending tell us? That Taub hates himself almost as much as I hate him? There's a revelation.
Doogie Howserette is still useless and still annoying. It's not even fun watching House snark her out anymore. His heart doesn't seem to be in it. Watch him devastate Cameron during the Season 1 differentials. The question is whether the apathy is House's or Hugh's?
Does Candice Bergen need the money that badly? I was embarrassed for her and the writers. You get Candice Bergen and you can't think of anything better to write than "mother from hell" with Yiddish? And her Yiddish wasn't even that good. Mine is better. House's has been better. And then you won't even let her be true to the bitchiness, but she gets away with "I know I can be difficult?" WTF?
And the obligatory slap in the face while feeding fanservice to the H/W shippers at the same time. Let me be clear about this. House was THRILLED when Wilson broke up with Julie. It's implied he did everything he could to get House away from Bonnie. He actively schemed to break up Wilson and Sam and he seethed jealousy at Amber. House wants Wilson to himself. If he wants to sit at home in (or out) of his underwear, he wants Wilson there. Whether you read it as slashy or not, THAT'S CANON. House does NOT want to get away from Wilson and he doesn't consider going to the movies or bowling with Wilson to be equivalent to some domestic horror with Cuddy and her mom.
No, throwing in the implication that House MIGHT get sex with Wilson doesn't undo the attempted retconning.
It just pisses me off.
And for the umpteenth week in a row, with the exception of Jack Coleman....Patient of the Week=ZZZZZZZZ. Especially since the "moral" is a rehash of "Failure to Communicate."
If anyone wants to see a show that's still having fun with itself and its characters and showing a modicum of respect for it's audience...White Collar is back!
