10:44 am - Headaches and House
Heh. Of course. I was supposed to go to a meeting at my church last night--and in the car, I noticed some sparkly visual aura in my left eye. Crap, here comes a migraine. I detoured by my house to grab some Excedrin before the pain hit, and attempted to drive to the meeting anyway. Yeah, that wasn't my most brilliant idea ever. I didn't even go in--I just went home and sacked out on the couch with low light and very low music on for a few hours.

Why couldn't it have hit a couple of hours earlier, so I could cut work? ;-)

Fortunately, it had abated enough for me to watch a bit of the season premiere of L&O: Criminal Intent (creepy as all heck, this one; *shudder*), and then House,MD, which I had taped during my nap.



Wow, there were a few things I didn't see coming in this one.

--Joel Grey. Hah. My first reaction was, "oh look! There's Doc." And the rest of the episode I kept thinking of him as Sloane. Heh.

--Opening scene? EWWeewwwwwEEEEWWWWWW! I don't mind rats in general, but I do mind having to see what they did to Grey's character. EEEEWwwww.

--Euthanesia. I guess I'm more surprised that it hasn't really come up before. While I admit to being a bit startled that Cameron was the one who actually did (and way to cover for her, House), I think I kind of feel the way House does: she acted on her beliefs that a patient's wishes are the most important. Instead of running away, she took action. And for that, House is proud of her.

Though I don't completely agree with her, I think I'm proud of her, too.

--Wilson is starting to really annoy me. Is he deliberately sabotaging House, or does he actually think he's helping? I just.... *sigh*

--I am creeped out by that teenager who seems to be stalking House.

--And I am continually amused by the "you're pregnant" "Am not" banter that House and Cuddy have going. Heh.


Oh, and btw, it's really hard to try and write dialogue for Jack O'Neill after watching House. I'm just saying.

Okay, as you were.
Current Mood: okayokay

Yeah, pretty much. My head doesn't like to be shaken too much the day after such events, but other than that I think I'm just fine. :-)

Hey, at least I only get them a couple of times a year, instead of every week or few days like a lot of people.

#1. You didn't even talk about L&O:CI other than it was creepy. It was awesome and freaky and a great season opener. Is it just me or has Goren gained a lot of weight?... and gone much more gray?
#2. I swear my husband had already seen House before we watched it because he was calling all the shots before they happened (yeah, I'm jealous, that's my job.) - "That rat's gonna eat him" and "Why doesn't he just give him enough morphine to shut him up so he can work on him."
#3. Yay for Cam. She falls a little further off her high horse every day. I know I couldn't have done it!
#4. Ditto on the annoying prego banter (I think she is, why else would they keep it up? He's obviously seeing something he's not telling us).
#5. Ditto on the Wilson undermining crap, but I've been pissed about it since epi 1. He is trying to get House to stop playing God by playing God against House! At least when House plays God lives get saved. When Wilson does it, House gets back both his addiction and his cane. Bad Wilson, bad!
#6. I'm lovin the little chickie. It's just what House needs... even though we all know it's gonna be nothing but trouble.
--Just my 6 cents.

Well, that's partly because I am not an L&O nut, just an occasional viewer, plus the fact that I only caught about the last 20 minutes (Eames' kidnapping onward), and was quite lost as to the backstory (which didn't make the scene where Goren talked to the daughter any less compelling/devestating).

Also: I was still coming off my migraine, which means kind of half-watching the painfully bright moving pictures on my TV. :-)

Is it just me or has Goren gained a lot of weight?

Huh. I didn't notice the gray, but I think he has gained a bit of weight. I actually remember thinking he looked younger than I'm used to thinking he is, but that could just because he was less cool-and-collected than normal. (And omg, with very good reason!)

Oh! Eames is awesome. When she hotwired that door I totally cheered.

#2. I swear my husband had already seen House before we watched it because he was calling all the shots before they happened

Hee. I was hoping the rat wasn't going to do that...and I most definitely called House's bluff with the "morphine". I mean, seriously, so easy to lie like that. I'm just surprised that ALL his little interns fell for it!

#3. Yay for Cam. She falls a little further off her high horse every day. I know I couldn't have done it!

Word. She deserved that praise from her mentor. I'm not even sure *he* could have done it.

#4. Ditto on the annoying prego banter (I think she is, why else would they keep it up? He's obviously seeing something he's not telling us).

Dude, I really hope not. Though since House is usually right....

#5. Ditto on the Wilson undermining crap, but I've been pissed about it since epi 1. He is trying to get House to stop playing God by playing God against House! At least when House plays God lives get saved.

EXACTLY. And to think I used to like Wilson quite a lot! Hmph. He's going to have to do something like sacrifice himself by pushing a child out of the way of an oncoming car to get back my affections, at this point. (Even if he *is* the hottest guy on this show.)

Yay, that was fun, thank you for playing. ;-)

With regards to Joel Grey, I saw the doc from Buffy but also the MC from Caberet and had Welkomen in my had everytime they showed his face.

I was not so happy with the euthanesia thing. But I did have sympathy for the pain.

The House-Cuddy thing is kind of funny.

I have a feeling that the teenager will be back in the February sweeps which should be a month before her supposed 18 birthday. I'm just saying that would be a typical raitings stunt.

In real life, I object to most cases of euthanesia. But the way it played out here, it was more about Cameron having the courage to stand up for her own convictions than about whether helping someone commit suicide actually equals murder.

And did you notice that Cameron was in the chapel when House found her? She keeps saying she's an atheist. I keep thinking, well, we'll see how long that lasts.

Well, according to the preview she'll be back next week. So I guess we shall see.
