The producers of House took a big risk, having House and Cuddy enter a relationship. I feared a Moonlighting-sized creative meltdown would result, a massive jumping of the shark. I wasn’t sure the first few episodes this season.
The producers haven’t been afraid to shake up the show (or the cast) from season to season, and it looks like, after tonight’s episode, it’s paid off again. I like where this is going.
Kudos, producers. And congrats on the brilliance of recognizing that every episode does indeed follow a House formula… so the gimmick here is to shake up the settings and the characters instead. And it appears that for yet another season, they’ve managed to pull it off.
Plus, tonight’s episode had Cynthia Watros. So perhaps I was distracted.
