The best season so far
on 29 July 2007
House season 3 is by far the best, and riskiest, season of the impressive medical drama so far. Steadily increasing in popularity with each passing year, it is welcoming to see that the House writers didn't decide to 'rest on their laurels', but instead did unpredictable, surprising things to the main cast. On few popular dramas do we see the lead character jailed and facing prison, but then Dr. Gregory House is no ordinary, ten-a-penny drama character. This complex genius is made all the more engaging due to his fierce conflict with Tritter, a spiteful detective out to destroy House's life. Tritter, played superbly by David Morse, is a rare character on House: someone who is equal to the doctor, and who won't back down without a fight. This compelling vendetta, and House's uncertain future, dominates much of the first half of the season, and stands as one of the best sub-plots in the series history to date. As the season progresses, we see more screen time devoted to the relationships forming between the supporting characters. At least one of these relationships gives House much reason for consternation, and his antics during this period are amusing and at times juvenile. As for the season finale, it will be interesting to see if the writers have the courage to go ahead with the massive changes implemented in this episode. If they do, then this show will have earned its rightful recognition as the gutsiest show currently being made for television.
