A few rambly thoughts

Starting with a very short Glee rant for Episode 3 behind the cut...kind of spoilery



HOW THE FUCK DO YOU GET VICTOR GARBER ON A SHOW ABOUT SINGING....AND NOT HAVE HIM SING!!!!!????? WHAT THE FUCK? I was so sure he'd end up on stage with the Acafellas and it would have been awesome, or him getting to do a big ballad behind a closing montage, and instead...NOTHING??? There's a lot of things I really do no like about this show and right now that has got to be #1.

Mammogram time. Oh joy! Basically I'm being blackmailed by my doctor. If I don't get my mammogram, at some point they'll cut off my birth control pill prescription. i.e. Get your tits squished or you might get pregnant. Nice.

Yes, I know I'm of a certain age, there's some cancer on both sides of my family, and the b.c. pills put me in a risk factor group anyway. It's in my interest to have the test. Doesn't mean I appreciate the coercion.

Hey, my good friends up in Seattle. Sorry for what the Niners did to you on Sunday. Except not really. The Niners have been sucking so hard for so long that this little two game streak is a cause for some momentary joy on the streets of San Francisco.

More House thoughts behind the cut.


Soooooo....over the end of the last season, the idea was that each of the patients was supposed to represent some aspect of House. In my opinion this made for a bunch of absolutely forgettable patients, because their medical mysteries, the thing that was supposed to be the hook for the show itself, no longer mattered. I still have NO IDEA what the fuck happened with ballet dancer and whether her boyfriend gave her gonnohrea or not. Nor do I care.

Was it your impression that ALL of the patients in the mental hospital were supposed to represent parts of House as well? I could certainly see it with Alvy, and it seemed very anvilly with Freedom Master as well. That went he took the jump, it was House destroying his old self. Or I'm reading too much into it. Which is likely.

I really did like the Alvy character. I'd love to see him show up at PPTH and give House shit. That would be fun, but I'm suspecting there will be no carry over either of characters or (really) character development. I'm now thinking they'll keep House off pain-killers for awhile, but I just can't see that going on indefinitely.

I'm personally annoyed that they seem to be presenting the anti-depressants as the be-all/end-all of acheiving "happiness," although at least it fits in with House's personality to invest a pill with the power to fix him. The question is whether it's possible to develop an addiction or abusive personality with them.

I'll probably keep musing about the episode for the rest of the week. When I re-watch with hubby, I might pick up stuff I missed the first time. (Like figuring out whether there was enough indication of undressing on House's part to make the chair-sex plausible.)

Steve's going home to New England for a few days, so I'll have a new temp tomorrow.

This should be fun. I'll have to see if she's fertile ground for a Barrowmania conversion.

Speaking of the man himself...from a recent interview, regarding his appearance in La Cage:
(And thanks to hllangel for bringing this to my attention.)

It’s the first time I’ve played a gay character.

Join me a little happy dance right there, because to me, that's John re-affirming Captain Jack's omni-sexuality. That's my boy!
