1) When did you start watching House?
I started watching House in 2008 when it was running on TV. I believe it was the second season.
2) What was your first impression?
At that time House was everywhere: on the Internet, at TV, at DVDs on the shelves of shops, and even on t-shirts. At first I was astonished of everyone’s admiration and excitement of this man: he didn’t even seem nice, not saying about his extreme methods of treatment, his unwillingness to be polite with patients, his disrespect for the rules. It seemed like all the world’s become totally crazy, because no one likes the doctor that can’t comfort sick man, but blames everyone in lies, no one likes the person which it’s so complicated to deal with.
3) Why did you keep watching?
After watching two or three episodes, I thought House was rude cynical asshole which had brilliant mind and extraordinary personality. Smart dialogues and unusual medicine, hard decisions and interesting relationships between characters deeply impressed me.
4) You hated it when... Why?
It’s hard to remember, but I’ll try. I hated episode “No reason” when House was doing
really crazy things. Though it was happening inside his head, I didn’t know it till the end
of the episode, and his certainty in his extremely dangerous actions seemed terrifying. That was completely mind-blowing episode.
Then it was hard to see when House’s pain was back is season 3, it was really sad. I think at that time I was already feeling compassion to him.
5) You loved it when... Why?
I don’t remember when it actually happened. I didn’t notice the accurate moment. It just
– being! – and I am already watching House on TV every day and trying not to miss any
6) Why House mattered to you?.
“House m.d.” is the thing that shows: the world is not colored black and white, even more, it has so many hues and subtexts that one should search for them thoroughly. House is the person that is different for each of us. He is complicated, he’s the one it’s hard to be near and don’t get disappointed, sometimes he can hurt anyone with his words or deeds because that’s just who he is. But first of all House is better person than he shows. He is talented to see what is right and what’s wrong, he can manipulate people for his own benefit but he can truly punish himself for what he did wrong. He is fair to the world, to people around him and to himself. He has a great strength inside but also the unresolvable complexities. He is the Greater Good though only some people are allowed to see it. He is discrepant himself, but he makes other people defined. He performs his destination with just doing his job and interacting with people, he changes them, but can not get more for himself because he’s okay with being miserable. I can say House changed me in some point, made me understand
some important things. And I’m glad of it.
7) What will you miss?
I will miss Hugh Laurie’s fascinating acting, which made House so many-sided, “most
incredible man I’ve ever known”. I will miss Cuddy, Wilson, Chase, Foreman, Cameron,
Taub, Cutthroat Bitch, Thirteen, Stacey, Tritter and anyone who ever joined the show and made every episode so interesting, involving, provocative, sometimes moot, sometimes touching. I will miss every second of “House” and the feeling of first look on the new episode. I’ll definitely miss the time, when I’ve had many episodes to watch in future, and knew that my favorite characters will appear on the screen again and again. I will miss of how this show always amazed and charmed me.
8) What will you remember?
I will never forget as Dr. Gregory House interested me at the first time.
I will remember the summer of 2010, when I really became a fan and simultaneously
realized my sympathy to the House/Cuddy couple. Thus, this year was doubly meaningful and memorable for me.
I will remember the time, when I got up at 4 a.m every Tuesday and watched “House” in
live broadcasting from USA. Mornings I was sleepy but absolutely happy.
I will never forget all my emotions when there were only minutes left to my first online-
watching House in the Internet (season 7 premiere). My messages had tons of mistakes -the hands were shaking because of the thrill and I just couldn’t push the right keys. It felt so incredibly exciting like dream was about to come true. I will remember that September 20th because it gave me such powerful emotions like not any other show or movie ever did.
I’m hard to be touched by book of film, but I won’t forget the sorrow I felt as the tears were running down my cheeks after watching Bombshell. This was unforgettable.
I couldn’t ever forget about “House” happened to me. It’s like the storm rushed in my head, then in my soul and took place in it for years. It is definitely one of the most extraordinary, sticking in memory, outstanding TV shows. Though House is a fictional person, in fans’ consciousness he is almost real: in different times we were glad for him, we worried about him, we were in pain with him, we hated him and we loved him. Why? Because we all felt: this show has a soul.
Sorry for my English and thanks a lot! :)
