Now you have seen every episode of House, no spoiler tags needed.

Too predictable for me.
2 things.

1. Fuck you.
2. You're wrong.

Seen all episodes of House, some twice/three times. One of the best shows ever...

That part where he admits his addiction, after ODing on vicodin, in around the 5th season, was a magical piece of Television, really moving.

The witty banter between House/Wilson is great.

The show is like a sit-Drama, if you watch one by one, it'll seem samey, but it's all about the underlying story lines like:
House and Cuddy
when the black guy tries to take over the hospital.
House's Team's home-life, inc 13/Foreman, chase/cameron.

When you read, you have to read between the lines. when you watch a show, you gotta watch between the pixels, man.

Tl;Dr - House is awesome, haters stfu.

The guy who wishes he never sold all his warhammer. Haha. Such is life.

Exactly, the patients are just plot devices to show other sides and issues the main characters have. But hell i could watch the whole thing just for house and wilsons witty banter, his quips at Cuddy and the way the main three doctors working for him(whoever they are at the time) interact with each other and house

Besides...

Cameron.
13.
Cuddy.

What other reasons do you need to watch a show?

I love House's constant childish approach to his relationship with Cuddy, and the hell he puts her through.

Dr. House: Gimme a reason to get out of this, and I'll tell you who started the rumor about you being a transsexual.
Dr. Cuddy: There is no such rumor.
Dr. House: There will be unless you get me out of this dinner.

Dr. Cuddy: But you used to have sex with her.
House: Well, it was a massage plus happy ending sort of thing. Now it's more of a sad ending. (brightly) Because of you!


Plus his jokes about race are actually funny instead of tasteless like on many shows.

House: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, what? I know about the Jew, the black, and the Croc Hunter, but when did we get our Asian persuasion on?

Dr. Foreman: Why are you riding me?
Dr. House: It's what I do...has it gotten worse lately?
Dr. Foreman: Yeah. Seems to me.
Dr. House: Really. Well, that rules out the race thing. 'Cause you were just as black last week.

I do love House, but the episodes can get a little repetitive. I'm not sure it's a good thing when you have to blank out the central plot of an episode in order to focus on the sub-plots. I'd rather then entire thing was as interesting as the characters themselves are.

Also:

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

I must admit the big words they throw at us, are very limited.

If I hear the words 'Lumbar' Puncture one more time....

I never watch this show anymore. My dads a doc so every time he walks in the room he will sit for maybe a minute or two and nail whatever the dude has without fail. It can be slightly annoying.

In reply to your exceptional prowess with a keyboard ROT:

1) I've heard that about you Essex gal's, cheap and easy.

2) My wife says I am never wrong, and she knows me best so I will go with her statements over yours. (Plus, she is way better looking than you will ever be.)

Okay... before we even start, I'm going to try and confirm that you know I'm a guy.

Anyway, 2 things.

1. Fuck you
2. You're wrong.
