Some television characters just shouldn’t be together. I don’t care how much unresolved sexual tension there is or how funny the witty banter is or how much chemistry the two characters have. There are just some “will-they or won’t-they” couples who should absolutely won’t—because once you take away that conflict, the show and the two characters’ interactions become uninteresting. And this is no more truer than for Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) and Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), whose relationship I’m still not over. Not only was it unnecessary, it ruined House by becoming the central focus of the show. READ FULL STORY

If you’re unlucky enough to be stricken with a rare medical condition, you’d better hope your doctor watches the right television show.
That was the lesson for one German man with severe heart failure and a puzzling mix of symptoms, including fever, blindness, deafness, and enlarged lymph nodes, which stumped doctors for months.
The 55-year-old man was diagnosed only when he was referred to Dr. Juergen Schaefer, a fan of the U.S. television medical drama House.
“After five minutes, I knew what was wrong,” said Schaefer, who works at the Center for Undiagnosed Diseases in Marburg, north of Frankfurt.

The big question going into tonight’s series finale of House was whether or not Dr. Gregory House would die.
Between the rumored returns (Kal Penn, Amber Tamblyn, etc.) and the scary-sounding title of the last episode, spoiler-loving folk knew something afoot. Would House have a pre-death trip through his history? Would everyone meet up for a funeral? Would all of House’s friends gather in a big intervention? At several points during the show’s last episode, I thought I had it all figured out, but true to House form, it had me guessing until the very end. Ultimately, the answer was: READ FULL STORY
Chances are, someone is going to die tonight on House.
Unless you’re a spoiler-phobe who has been avoiding the interwebs for the last month and a half, you’ve probably seen that a bunch of characters from House seasons past are returning in tonight’s finale. Jennifer Morrison, Amber Tamblyn and Kal Penn are among those returning. Penn’s rumored appearance, specifically, launched fans into a speculation frenzy because Kutner is, well, dead. And the consensus is that someone will bite it in tonight’s episode.
The obvious choice — should there be a casualty at all — is cancer-stricken Wilson, who has five months to live — one month less than the time that House stands to spend in jail for vandalizing the hospital last week. But when was the last time House writers took the obvious route?

Meanwhile, Will Smith returns to the multiplex after a four year absence, and the week kicks off with the music business celebrating its (quantifiably) biggest stars. Enjoy! READ FULL STORY
