Is House finally in charge again?
21 October 2009 | by riverthorSee all my reviews

Is House finally back in charge? Foreman is good as comic relief, but he has no business being put in charge remember he was fired when he tried to go it alone in season 4). He really has't improved as a physician over the last 3 years. Chase has become an excellent surgeon since he left House's group, while Cameron has drifted away into making beds and washing bed pans. Cutty is like a yo-yo, there is no logic in her decisions. I watch House to see Hugh Laurie practice medicine, The pain medicine House takes is relatively mild. If he were taking oxycontin, dilaudid, fentanyl or demoral I could understand all the fuss, but vicodin is considered to be a mild pain reliever. The shows creators and writers should have done some better research before hanging the term addict on House (and wasting 3 seasons on his addiction problem.) Now that House can practice again, I hope he joins the staff of a new hospital - leaving the old gang and their baggage behind - so he can again practice his medical specialty and be the old House again. Or better yet get rid of the hospital staff that is there and bring in some new writers (there are plenty out there now that NBC has killed off 5 hours of drama shows with Leno.
