Hope you’ve had a great summer and are ready for the season 8 premiere of House, M.D. “Twenty Vicodin.” I’ve seen the episode and it is excellent. I know some of you are unhappy with the way things turned out at the end of last season and with the departure of Lisa Edelstein as Dr. Lisa Cuddy. However, I think that if the premiere is any indication (and admittedly, it is a stand-alone, House only episode) Season 8 will be fantastic.
Over the weekend, I posted my review of “Twenty Vicodin” at Blogcritics, so do take a look (warning–there are a few spoilers, so spoilerphobes should stay away). Hugh Laurie is fantastic in the episode (in fact the entire cast of the first episode is excellent). But he is the only one from the cast in it. (That promo floating around with Foreman in it must be from a later episode–maybe episode 2?)
We are all sad that Hugh Laurie didn’t win the Emmy last night, but he looked great, and it was great to see himpresent (and tease Helen Mirren). It was nice to see a few of my regular readers come to our little Blogcritics Emmy party. It was a huge success, with 182 people stopping by during the four hours we were broadcasting our chat.
It was such a huge success that I’ve decided to host another chat–this one following the broadcast of the House season premiere. So. Please come and bring your friends. The only rules will be NO Flaming and if you have an axe to grind, leave it at home. Let me know if you’re planning to come (and I promise to keep the chat open long enough for West Coasters to join in).
And if you haven’t yet, do pick up a copy of Chasing Zebras: The Unofficial Guide to House, M.D. It’s available in paperback and for immediate download (on pretty much every ebook platform)! And if you have already read it, please let others know by writing a short review for Goodreads or Amazon.com
