Eh, maybe a little. I think the 13-heavy arc for a few episodes I was thining a bit, but I still really like this show mostly because of Laurie. The last couple of episodes (esp. last week) have been good and this week's looks promising.

NOOOOOOOOO! Not Kutner! Oh, man. That came from nowhere...

I was sure Taub would be the one to top himself.

Wow... this show is horrible trash... wow...

I have watched for several seasons and this could very well be the last episode I bother watching.

Yeah.
So ... what is House's play here? Is he trying to somehow assuage his own guilt?

Re: House 5x20: "Simple Explanation" - Discussion and Spoilers

well, ok, the kutner death was interesting, and unexpected, completely, a weird kind of depressing episode so far though

Based on spoilers I had read, I suspected Kutner would die tonight.

Apparently in, er, "light" of his death all of New Jersey turned their lights off.

I feel the same way. I love House as a character, but I feel as if I've had my fill. Plus, eventhough the show itself is far from bad, it feels as if the tone has shifted from what it was in the first season. That first season felt like a simple show about a simple doctor, but now there seems to be more melodrama. I think they've done this in an attempt to keep the show interesting, but I'd say the first season's formula was fine and worked well. This isn't the kind of show that needs too much drama. All it needs is House being House. That and possibly a shorter run.

As for this episode, I'm surprised that Kutner's dead.

Re: House 5x20: "Simple Explanation" - Discussion and Spoilers

Taub is getting to be more like House than Foreman was. Odd how detatched he is.

Kutner streaked at a football game? That does sound like him.

Yeah, I think House is going to be troubled by guilt for a while.
