It takes a lot for my "pop-corn entertainment" shows to really aggravate me but Jesus H. Christ, even I am sick and tired of Boreteen on House. And I neither hate the characters nor was particularly put off by them together. I just didn't really care either way. Which was fine as long as they and their relationship didn't take up too much screentime but now? Man, dial it down, show.

Quite frankly, I did like it more when 13's Huntington was just some background info we had on her like Taub's cheating or Kutner's geek days. Lately the latter have become more enjoyable to me because they're "proper" Cottages. They snark and spar with House, are a bit funny and quirky and their personal lives are largely left out.

Cuddy's baby thing is also a bit trite. That's a storyline you either commit to or you don't, writers. Not this half-assed pish-posh.

Also, MORE Wilson please. I miss the little scenes where House barges into Wilson's office all the time and the snark. Or where House makes Wilson pay his lunch etc. They were childish but cute. What happened?

Hunh, so I shouldn't even bother, eh?

I haven't even watched the second half of the last season. I'm still collecting the episodes but sometimes I think of just giving it up.

The episodes itself still have good stuff in them but the whole Boreteen stuff is just full on soap opera and Thirteen is becoming a way overexposed character. Back when Cameron and Chase did their relationship dance, they didn't have so much storyline devoted to them which was fine by me.

Maybe if you just ff all their parts, it will be better.

I gave up on House this season. It's more soapish than Grey's Anatomy. Yuck.

The last few episodes really went too soap-heavy, I agree. Which is a shame because I liked the medical procedural structure. I guess the Thirteen character is some writer's pet or something because seriously no Cottage ever got this much storyline to themselves. And that was a good thing.
