Change Isn't Always Bad

I was watching 'House' earlier today and realized something:  I don't miss the character of 'Cuddy' at all.  There were many things I never liked about the character and I'm really not sad to see her go.  First, this was a woman who was supposed to be at the top of her game, a professional in a very demanding and prestigious job.  Yet, she dressed in a way that would be frowned upon in the 'typing pool!'  Really now, how many professional women dress with their 'girls' hanging out like she did?  I'm not saying that the character had to dress in turtlenecks and long skits, just in a more professional manner, is all.  I also didn't like how she was so wishy-washy.  She would piss and moan to House about how he shouldn't be doing what he did, yet she never punished him in any way.  Everything she did was with reluctance.  And when she finally showed some backbone when she stood up to the rich guy over House, she pissed and moaned about it.  Every chance she got, she let House know that she threw away millions of dollars and it was his fault.  These are just a couple of things I didn't like about her.  Looking back, I don't think the character was all that well written and I am not missing her in the least.  So, what do you think?

Cuddy dressed like a cheap tart.

Say, was that book you were reading by the Hugh Laurie? Any good?

vicomtesse: Yes, the book was written by 'House.' ;) It was an okay read, but had some problems. Still, it wasn't a waste of time--I've read far worse. :D

meleah: What exactly DID she bring to the show? ;D

I guess she had to be the resident bitch who wasn't bullied by House unlike the other female doctors working under him. I think she caved because he's very good at his job. I haven't watched it in a while because it seems to be the same old, same old.

You ARE right, SOMEONE had to (at least try to) stand up to him. With Cuddy gone, now they have Forsman butting heads with House and it isn't working--Forsman just comes off as a petty d*ck when he confronts House. I'm thinking this just may be the last year for the show--and I think it is time to go. I'm almost wondering if it 'jumped the shark' when they did the storyline with his former girlfriend/lover/live (Sela Ward)--that just showed how much of a bastard House really is. But then, the storyline with the rich guy could also have been when the show 'jumped'--or when House tried to sabotage Cuddy's relationship with that one guy. Yeah, maybe the show is getting much too long in the tooth to be relevant anymore. ;)
