    Compare notes.

    I saw it (but with loud kids and my barking dog, I didn't HEAR all of it). I was overall impressed with the show. I have to admit, I was HOPING that the writers weren't going to fuck around and make the Psychatric Hospital theme last too long. I didn't want to see an entire season of that place even though it led to some interesting plot twists and show-cased the acting talents of Hugh Laurie.

    What say you House fans?

    A good season opener, showing promise of real good season to come?

    Or, a flop?

    I thought it was great but not without long term implications.

    Part of the appeal to House as a character was his obnoxious, abrasive personality, and I think that given the VanGogh conversation, the writers are aware of it and won't lose that as a thread. We'll see

    I live for the day when Foreman and his GF are written off. There is so little chemistry between the two that I cringe when they're together.

    I like Chase and Cameron and hope they get rid of everyone else and bring in a whole new back up cast

    overall it was pretty good. did like that house was trying to disect the black doc, like to see his gears spinning. hated the psyco rapper guy, the chick coming out of a ten year laps of speaking just becasue of a music box was kinda LAME! I thought House was going to diagnose her with some medical condition but all it took was the ding ding ding of a music box.

    I adore Hugh Laurie and the love scene was pretty spectacular. I was happy with the positive turn and the sort of magical moment with the music box.

    House can't lose the snarky and harsh tone though, consistent positivity just isn't his nature. I love those rare moments though. Let the psych ward go after awhile with only vague references to it.

    Aaahhhh!! Still didn't get to watch House yet. Back to school night was last night and by the time everything was said and done it was 10pm. No way would I have been able to stay awake for 2 hours to watch. I watched The Good Wife, which was pretty good . . . . but I fell asleep during the last 20 minutes of the show so I have no clue what happened. So typical, cripes. Tonight, for sure, I'm watching House.

    Same thing happened to me.

    At first it was extremely interesting to watch.

    But after awhile it became very boring and borderline silly.
