House sidelined
18 September 2014 | by sam_avbSee all my reviews

I have seen some amazing episodes in season 6 and some terrible ones. But this one goes all the way up in the most terrible episodes. This episode made Mr.Tritter's episodes look like less annoying. While it is good that they showed the episode from Cuddy's perspective it was annoying to see how ungrateful she is towards House. And not only that it is much more annoying to see Cuddy and Lucas. They don't look good. Lucas is increasingly becoming more and more like a hindrance than going with the flow. Their relationship looks more and more disgusting,odd and superficial. It is getting on the nerves of many and I personally feel that way too. The kind of sparks that we find between House and Cuddy when they talk to each other (that is when they show from House's perspective) we don't find them at all from the time Lucas and Cuddy are together. It is getting on the nerves and because of that stupid relationship the hatred towards Cuddy looks justified. This TV series is named as "House" not "Cuddy" or "Foremen". So episodes like this should be left at imagination and never be aired. Wilson is able to decrypt House and his actions in last few episodes but Cuddy has just been ignorant, blind and totally ungrateful to what House has done and is doing. His face tells it all. I am totally disappointed with this episode but I am entertained completely because of House. He is brilliant actor whether it is his comic timing or his pranks. He has the charisma to carry it all with aplomb. Hope the episodes are NEVER like this one. I really want Cuddy and Lucas break up in such a way that he should NEVER return again.
