I like House, he rocks!
I loves me some House.
If I'm channel surfing and come across an episode I stop and watch it...even if it's half way through it.
Great TV show he is such a pain in the you know what
House seems to approach things the way everyone wants to, without any kind of PC filter, but more of a whatever it takes to get it done attitude..
He says the things we wish we could say. It is one of our favorite shows. Just got done watching season 6 and are will get season 7 when it comes out...so no spoilers.
The ONE irritating problem I have with this show... And don't get me wrong, I love it...
WHY does everyone call him "House"? Ok, I can understand the staff.. But when Cuddy and House were an item, well... What girlfriend on the planet calls her boyfriend by his LAST NAME????
There.. I feel better..
It's a pity Carol O'Connor isn't with us anymore. Can you imagine a episode where Archie Bunker is one of House's patients?
It is considered respectful to call someone by the name they wish. I have known quite a few people who for some reason or another do not want to be called by their first name. A lawyer I knew first name was Gaylord but insisted people refer to him by his middle name, Paul. He would ignore anyone who even tried to call him Gaylord. My Grandmother's first name was Arlis but she detested it so much that she went by the name of Betty. In the case of House, there may be a very interesting underlying story as to why no one calls him Gregory or Greg
He says a lot of things that the rest of us are thinking but are too polite to say.
Oh I certainly understand using MIDDLE names. I've known several people who choose to do that - even related to some. Heck, I've been forced to on occasion (when in a class with 5 "Davids" in it, the teacher had to have SOME way of differentiating us).
Barking out someone's last name is how you get them to respond when they're in a lineup - not when you're supposed to be their best friend. When I worked in health care, if you used someone's last name, you used their title - Dr. House would be this case. Here in the Air Force, you use someone's rank or "Mister" before the last name. I've worked in financial services, insurance, retail, publishing, distribution, telecommunications, data processing and manufacturing and I've NEVER experienced it.
Like I said - it's just a peculiar thorn in my side.. Even then I didn't notice as much until it struck me that WILSON was doing it - then got worse when CUDDY did it even AFTER they'd hooked up.
