Spoilers for last night's "House" coming up just as soon as I find out if two single doctors can share the same office without driving each other crazy...
I am, I think, a fairly even-tempered viewer, not the sort who tries to take things on his favorite shows personally. I try to give new characters a chance, even if they're getting screen time at the expense of longtime regulars who I like.
Now, with that rational disclaimer out of the way... I HATE THIRTEEN! SHE'S SO BORING! WHY IS SHE ON MY SCREEN SO MUCH EVERY WEEK? SHE NEEDS TO JUST DIE ALREADY! WAH WAH WAH!!!!!!!
Seriously, folks, it's just staggering to me that the "House" writers continue to find Thirteen so fascinating, and so in need of getting her own storylines week after week after week after week.
This isn't even a case of me being annoyed that Cameron and Chase are so marginalized, as I never cared much about them when they were more prominent. Nor is it really that much out of frustration with how little, say, Kutner has been fleshed out, because they would need to give him a personality -- instead of a wacky C-plot that felt like something "St. Elsewhere" would have found trite by the end of its second season -- before I cared about him, too. I just don't find Thirteen that interesting, at least not remotely to the degree of the airtime she's been getting this season. And I have a feeling we're not even close to being done with All Thirteen, All the Time so long as she's enrolled in Foreman's clinical trial.
The Patient of the Week story was a good one, and I enjoyed watching House and Cuddy play out the classic pigtails-in-the-inkwell story using office furniture and space, but every time we cut away to Thirteen, my attention wandered away to go get a sandwich.
What did everybody else think?
