House - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003

Thirteen? Egads, that twit's walked a fine line between annoying and boring since she showed up at the beginning of the season. Give me Cole back. Keep Cut Throat Bitch. Hell, give Weird Beard a call. Or the twins. ANYONE BUT THIRTEEN. You have Cameron to fill that "I'm so sentimental" slot, and quite frankly, it's annoying with her.

Meh, I think Kal Penn's character is the most boring.

Is that Kutner? He's not thrilling, and I don't know why Cuddy thinks he works like House, but at least he has some semblance of a personality, if one with an unhealthy relationship to defibrillator panels.

Honestly, I understand that most people found Cut Throat Bitch aggravating, but she had a personality. And, like you said, 13 is just Cameron all over again. I don't see why we just can't have more of Cameron for that -- Jennifer Morrison is still in the credits.

I'd like to have Cole back, too. He and Kutner are the only ones I really like of all the possibilities.

Taub grew on me, so I'm not too sorry that he's there. But man, Thirteen's been putting me to sleep since the beginning of the season. Nothing about the character suggests any reason that she would have survived several episodes, let along be permanent.

I don't like Taub but it's a personal preference; I can at least see a personality and understand why other viewers might find him entertaining. 13 is just ... Grr.

I knew they would keep Olivia Wilde, but oh man, do I hate 13. She's Cameron version 2.

Hmm. I don't know the actress. I thought she was just someone they picked to look like Morrison, which seemed silly, as Morrison's still on the show.

I wish they'd just decided to ditch all of them and put the old team back.

She was relatively famous with the OC.

I fear that we will see even less of the original team. I'm waiting to see the credits for the next episode.

Yeah, I have that impression, too. And is RSL going somewhere? As a friend pointed out, they're sure setting up Foreman to take on the Wilson job.
titti From: titti Date: November 28th, 2007 01:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't know what RSL is doing but we're seeing him less and less, and yeah, I think they are setting up Foreman too.

It's Cameron 2.0 or Cameron Lite. Fandom is embracing these names.

I wanted Really Old Guy to stay. :-) Although personally, Cut Throat Bitch and Cameron both annoy me more than 13 does. It's when 13 decides that she's in love with House that I'll be tempted to throw my remote at the screen. Oh, and does anyone know what the character's actual name is?
stephantom From: stephantom Date: November 28th, 2007 03:40 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, I agree. Cameron is actually kind of like... 13 and Amber combined. She got/gets so shrill when she's on her self-righteous crusades. And it's that combination in one person that made me really dislike Cameron. Amber on her own, I don't really like, but she was interesting in this episode and I didn't hate her. But 13 on her own... is fine. Maybe not all that interesting (and the show bombarding us with how mysterious she is was annoying) but tolerable and unobtrusive. She's an idealist, but an easygoing, open-minded one. So I don't mind her. In fact, I kind of like her.

But the moment they try to create "sexual tension" between her and House, I'm throwing something at the TV.

(And I liked the Old Fraud too.)

Oh, I think I might not mind if they hadn't been trying to push how oh-so-mysterious she was from the start. I wouldn't have voted for her among the candidates (Cole was my favorite, and he could have filled in the "idealist" role), but I wouldn't be so annoyed. I don't like oversell.

And yes, Cameron annoyed me, too, but if I'm going to be annoyed, it may as well be by someone who was already there and part of the scenery, rather than bringing in someone new just to fill the same part.

Yeah, true. She's kind of a Cameron do-over. And true, Cole could have been the idealist. They needed someone to be, I think, but did it have to be the same type of person? I'm not at all surprised that they made a new trio that exactly echoes the first. Thirteen = Cameron. Kutner = Chase. Taub = Foreman.

Me too, I loved Really Old Guy. So sad to see him go. :(

I liked this whole narrowing-down-the-contestants competition thing to begin with, but now it's getting stale, I think they just need to figure out who's staying and get on with it. But that may just be me.

Just to ask, I see an episode now and then but I'm not a regular watcher of House. Anyhow, I saw a couple episodes with the character "Big Love," whose real name I didn't catch.

Being 1) a Mormon myself and 2) way too smart mouthed for my own good, I couldn't help noticing that there are Buddhist monks who probably have more of a feel how to write a Mormon character than the writers on the show did and that, even trying to ignore that, I had major trouble with the way he just let House say whatever idiotic thing came into his mind and never respond. Although the writers may not know it, there is a difference between not turning the other cheek and not being House's punching bag.

Just wondered what your take on that was.
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: November 28th, 2007 05:29 am (UTC) (Link)
I was thinking that, until Cole made my life by being pushed too far and punching House in the face. House stopped the nonsense after that.

God, I miss Cut Throat Bitch.
Thirteen will probably serve as a.. 4-episode-maximum love interest.

I hope.

I like 13 because I feel like she's Cameron, but with less self-righteousness. Cameron would get angry because the person couldn't be cheating on his wife, the son couldn't be having sex with prostitutes, House was treating the patient like not-a-person. 13 gets annoyed when they aren't taking things seriously enough, but she isn't completely sentimental. And she's more understated when talking to House, and also less confrontational. Which, I'm not telling you to like her, I'm just sayin' why I think she's cooler than Cameron.

ETA: I will be mad pissed if she falls in love with House.
