If you always come late what does that mean














I have yet again come late to a TV series. I was late to ER, late to Scrubs, totally missed Lost, 24 and Grays Anatomy, and tonight I saw House for the first time. It was much better than I thought but I still can't get over Hugh Lawrie's american accent, which seems to be English but more gravelly than. House does seem to be very good and his character appeals to me in the was the Dr Cox from scrubs and Dr Pratt & Dr Lockheart in ER. Eccentric doctors with crazy personal lives seem to act as some kind of Icon for me - Dr Patch Adams also fits into this category.

It is a strange situation where you want to be like a fictional character in a fictional situation which was written purely for dramatic intent.

Anyway the break is over, so back to the final part of House.
