I watched House on Monday night, after a stupendous day (which I will blog about later). Kumar, the Indian doctor on the show, committed suicide, so the actor playing him would be free to go and work for the O-man (President Obama).
Now, I have no problem with that, because I’d like a job with Obama, too. However, the way the character was written off of the show sucked so bad, that I have promised myself I won’t watch House anymore. First of all, I’d like to state that I am not a professional television show writer, but I know enough about writing to know what’s good and what’s bad. Secondly, I read enough to know that a character was going to be killed off, though I had no idea WHICH character. One of the pleasures of watching a gazillion hours of television is the element of surprise. No surprise if you already know what is going to happen!
I was a faithful House fan for years, but this season seems to have jumped the shark – so I am going to step back and find something else to do on Mondays between 8pm and 9pm – like exercise.
