The season of Huddy.

Last night was better than I expected but I still found a lot of it really hard to take:
  • Really, House can *pickup* a grown woman? I know Cuddy is petite, but really? He has virtually no thigh muscle on one leg and he picked her up with little/no effort.
  • The love scenes lack passion. I just don't get any chemistry from them at all. They were nicely choreographed, though.
  • Mothers don't turn off their cell phones like that, especially not mothers who are used to being in control like Cuddy. Who had Rachel all day (and all night the night before)?
  • Not enough Wilson.
  • Not enough medicine.



There are a ton of spoilers out there if you are interested.

I have no idea how to do spoiler tags, so I won't post exactly what had me cracking up last night...but it involved Wilson in the kitchen.

I can already tell that I'm not going to be a Huddy fan.

This is the part that really bugged me. Even if we're supposed to assume that R was with her nanny or at gma's house, a mom wouldn't turn off her cell phone when no one knows where she is and no one can get in touch with her.

In any case, this epi didn't really feel like "Season Premier" - it was more like "Season Finale Epilogue" or something. I want more hospital (and Wilson )

yes. I thought this episode was so craptastic. I hope they fix it, because I can't take a whole season of this. Cuddy and house had absolutely no chemistry and all the script seemed so out of character for everyone.

I actually didn't mind the house/cuddy dynamic as much as I thought I would, but it was so isolated that it's hard to get a feel on it (which I assume they did on purpose).

She's still around (she finally made it into the credits!!!) but she was filming Tron & Cowboys and Angels while they were filming the first few episodes of the season. I think she comes back much later in the season. They have Amber Tamblyn coming in for a while.

Horrible episode. I really hope that it doesn't start going down hill now.

It was hilarious when Cuddy turned off her cell phone my dh looked at me and said "OH NO SHE DIDN'T...a MALE writer wrote that part!"

I was soo very proud of dh

Last night was painful. When did House become a Grey's Anatomy spinoff?

I did sort of like that Taub and Foreman were playing 'shipper wars, though.

It was hard to see Flo as, well, anyone but Flo.

This is a tree on fire with love, but it's still scary since most people think love only looks like one thing instead of the whole world. *

I thought this was a strong episode (although haven't we seen wife-hides-mental-illness thing before?). I really liked the Foreman-Chase storyline. That's going to inspire a good bit of fanfic. I dig the chemistry between the three fellows (although I guess only Taub is a fellow?) there now.

Huddy continues to annoy me. House has a massage therapist who actualy helps (after going through how many? 10?) and keeps his debilitating pain managable without drugs (which he has fought so hard to stay off of) and Cuddy cares that he used to sleep with this therapist? Wth? These are grown people? Ridiculous. Although, I must say, it was nice to see the hot guy from the State Farm commercial.

I would be very unhappy to find out my new boyfriend was getting massages -therapeutic or otherwise- from a hooker, much less a hooker he'd had sex with before. I would not continue to date a guy who would do that. Cuddy thought fast and offered House a solution that she could live with: drop the hooker massages and try this physical therapist or it's over. Totally fair. He can take it or leave it. If the physical therapist doesn't do as good a job he can decide from there.

She'd be utterly stupid to think House would never succumb (ha!) to temptation again. It's disrespectful to her.


That's where that guy was from!! Thank you. Knew he was in an ad recently.

Hey, I didn't mean to kill the thread!! Come back!

So, what did people think of Unplanned Parenthood?

House and Wilson's story was pretty fun. The mom and daughter's story I though was awkward. I thought the adult daughter's part was lacking something, I don't know what.

The mother/daughter thing was weird - I guess because they didn't really go into what it meant for the mother to have "not been there" for the older daughter. I just never empathized at all with the daughter - without further information, she just seemed like a jealous spoiled brat.

While the House/Wilson/Cuddy'ds daughter story was totally unrealistic, it was at least funny, and it was nice to see more Wilson this episode.

I'm glad the doctor auditioning for the team told Taub to grow some balls .

As a side note, did anyone catch Cameron on How I met Your Mother last night?

Last night was the first episode I've watched in awhile. My thoughts were mostly about little things they did wrong.

1. That baby was born with no umbilical cord (or if there was one they cut it and cleaned up so fast, like as she was 2 second pushing) and no blood on it's feet

2. Why was there baby food in Cuddy's fridge? That kid is huge.

I also did not feel connected to the older daughter at all.

I really need to go catch up somewhere, I missed like the last half of last season and then everything this season so far. I only knew about House and Cuddy from the previews.

I couldn't get past the fact that the mom was practically upside down pushing that baby out. Also didn't really get the older daughter thing - weak part of the story line, didnt really do the job of making whatever point they were trying to make.

Kind of a weak episode, I thought. And I LOVE House.

yes, they normally explain more of the backstory of the patients when they want drama like that. I'm being consistently disappointed this season.
