At first the introduction of Tritter was an interesting twist but now it is out of hand. Initially I thought my dislike for Mr. Morses' character stemmed from my admiration for Dr. House but as the storyline continues it goes beyond that. Tritters' vindictive nature really leaves you feeling negative towards authority figures in general and how they can abuse the privilege of being in this position of "power". Anyone that has watched House religiously has to admit that feeling of resentment towards Tritter (which I have to tip my hat to the excellent acting skills of David Morse, he's playing this character that the writers manifested exceedingly well), not because of the proverbial cock fight between House and Tritter (which everyone wants House to win), but because of how vulnerable anyone would feel in the same position. Leaves you with a feeling of disdain for someone that would voluntarily go "outside the lines" for personal gratification. This unfortunate turn of events takes away from the television series, and more specifically House's addiction to Vicodin, because the focus becomes centered on Tritter and his personal vendetta. The message that I would have liked to have seen would have been that the police officer ultimately is trying to help the drug addict but instead you feel sorry for the addict and in turn want the police officer to suffer, or to simplify...Drugs are good, Police are bad. I think the writers got a little overzealous on this one, inadvertently flip flopped the message, and have prolonged the beating of the "dead horse". Hope you can make it right guys or I guess I'll just have to tune in to American Idol. :)
