I didn't think this would ever happen again, but... *sigh* I have a confession. I spent the weekend, in large part, watching the first season of House MD on DVD. Also the first four eps of Season 2. That isn't the confession. I'm confessing complete and total addiction to a TV show that isn't Farscape. I have to face it: the writing is great, the acting is great (Hugh Laurie's eyes have a role all their own), I'm a sucker for bizarre illnesses and their treatment, and I'm also a sucker for brilliant and damaged men. *puts House in a drawer with Erik, Severus, Jekyll, Jarod...*

As for the rest of the characters, Foreman is cool, I can identify with Cameron, Cuddy rocks, and Chase is okay when he isn't being a twit. His accent does nothing for him, sadly. Stacy (or is it Tracy?) has managed not to piss me off so far, which is worth points. Oh, and Wilson! Listed last, but certainly not least. I admire him like I admire the Persian, or John Utterson, or Sydney (whose actor guest-starred as Chase's dad, which is frickin' sweet).

NOTE: I found out by accident what happens at the end of Season 2. It doesn't surprise me, but if anyone spoils me more I'll be upset. *pout*

Now, I wouldn't be posting this without a good reason. I'm wondering if anyone else who watches House also reads Robin Cook novels. I'm wondering because I would dearly love to see a crossover in which House meets Jack Stapleton. The two are similar figures, only Stapleton has a better grip on his personal life (read: he has one). I figure they'd either hate each other or become drinking buddies. Thing is, I'm fascinated by illness and medicine, and I know how the story would have to work, but the details make me balk--otherwise I'd write it myself. So, if anyone knows of such a story, or is interested in the complete plotbunny, do please let me know. I would be most grateful. {= )
