Season 5

Tonight is the night I've spent six long, empty months waiting for.

No, I'm not having sex, not even with another person.

Tonight is the night that Hugh Laurie finally limps back into my living room for another season of House, making this day a glorious combination of Christmas, my birthday, and that time I found $50 in the J. Crew dressing room.

Last season ended with the two episode gut punch "House's Head/Wilson's Heart" in which we learned that House got hammered and called Wilson's girlfriend Amber the Cutthroat Bitch to retrieve him from the bar. Unfortunately, they relied on public transportation to get them home, took a brief detour to Fierycrashville, and House lived while Amber learned that the afterlife looks exactly like a city bus. Or, in LOLHouse form:






I briefly considered liveblogging tonight's episode but I can imagine that everyone would quickly tire of observations like "HUGH LAURIE IS LOOKING AT ME! HE IS TOTALLY STARING AT ME THROUGH THE TELEVISION. SEE ME HUGH! SEE ME!"

But that doesn't mean that I'm not going to be sitting on the sofa, twirling my official replica cane, and wondering if it's safe to lick the screen.

OMG! Im super excited about it as well and I cant wait to read your thoughts on it! And yes, he is super sexy, but no, I dont think licking the TV is a good idea!

Andrea N said...

Your love of House and all things Hugh Laurie is what prompted me to start watching over the summer, and by golly you've helped create another addict.

I would be all over your live blogging!

Lori said...

He's not looking at you, HE'S TOTALLY LOOKING AT ME!!!!

BTW, I just caught a re-run where Hugh does a British accent...poorly. Now that's damn fine acting.

mentalTHREESIXTY said...

Yes... it is safe to lick the screen. I've done it Olivia Munn during episodes of Attack Of The Show!

Im sure you're gonna have to google her

Carmen said...

I am in love with House... and I watched the season finale twice last night (I love time shifting) preparing for tonights wonderful occasion. Only a couple of hours until complete bliss.

TMC said...

The couch is too far from the screen... must...be.. closer to him and have the space to jump up and down excitingly when he insults people! Can't get enough.

R.J. Cookenboo said...

Make sure the screen isn't dusty first. Its perfectly acceptable to lick the screen if Hugh Laurie is on it. Or the hot Australian.

Deutlich said...

I can't friggin WAIT!

Butter Chicken said...

I hope the episode involves a medical mystery that can't be solved without the requisite elements of misdiagnosis, verbal abuse, angry co-workers, rebellious behaviour and an Angela Landsbury-esque "Eureka" moment.

Uggghh. Another fucking season of this. I am pretty sure House's leg injury resulted from dead horse flogging-related activities.

Ginger said...

OMG, OMG, OMG (and I'm so not that girl), I can't wait. I'm practically itchy for the premier. Mmmmmm, grouchy damaged doctors....

Jenn N Butter said...

Oh how I have missed your House obsessed blogs. Wish I didn't have class tonight or I would be watching it too.

Tassie said...

I like this show too. Your blog cracks me up!

Laura said...

The boyfriend just got me into House, and I'm slowly trying to catch up. Only at the beginning of the second season right now, so I have a long way to go before I can start watching live. I hope I don't have to skip sections of your blog for too long! Just be sure to give some spoiler warnings, please :)

Beth said...

If only all of us could get together for a House party! I've had tonight's premiere written on my calendar forever.

Tonight, he returns to us!

Dr Zibbs said...

I still have never seen this.

nancypearlwannabe said...

Oh good! Yet another show I can watch starting from season one in a giant, lo-carb Monster fueled marathon.

Mr. McBastard said...

If I was an advocate of Twitter, I would suggest twittering your season premier experience on the fly.

But I'm not, so I won't.

Felicia said...

You found $50 in a J. Crew fitting room??? I think I'd be OK with dying after that if that happened to me.

Heinous said...

A little windex and you should be fine to lick the screen. Did someone say Oliva Munn? Sorry, I got distracted there.

Indy said...

Please give us a recap!!!

They're what brought me here in the first place...I less than 3 them oh so much...

Word!

Robbie said...

Thanks for the recap.
As I don't live in the US I'll be watching this either today or tomorrow on one of those dodgy websites....can't wait.
Although I hope you haven't spoilt it for me and I start to get freaked out thinking Laurie is looking AT me!

Word Perv said...

It's nice to know I'm not the only one who loves this show. Sadly I don't have cable. MUST BUY SEASONS ON DVD.

LOLHouse=Awesome

I may have peed my pants after seeing the "it was an aksident" shot.

Michael said...

"not even with another person?"

That's the hottest thing I've read in a while.

My husband and I were JUST wondering when he's back on the air last night! Love him, his sarcasm and his totally great whit --

stealthnerd said...

Best thing ever is that USA network is now showing House every weeknight at 8. LOVES IT!

mindy said...

I think more serious dramas should be turned into LOLSpeak. This is fantastic.

Two Left Feet said...

i love smartasses and dry humor. hence me loving house. and your blog.

Bogart in P Towne said...

You could so sing the LFO song "Girl on TV" except it would be Boy on TV.

heidi said...

i've been rooting for House & the church girl/whore. Remeber her from the Christmas episode last season? Must get House some hanky panky.

akomuzikera said...

house to cuddy: "you go girl"
lol very funny. guess i'll be following your blog from now on. salud!

Mickey said...

I had it on, but I wasn't really paying attention. Does that make me a bad person?

Marinka said...

I don't even watch "House" and this totally cracked me up! I can only imagine how much I'd laugh if I knew what we were talking about.

Bradshaw said...

Now I wish I watched House. I can totally understand you on the running thing and on the baseball thing (though I'm a Cardinals fan and am still bitter against the BoSox after '04...no, I'll never like them), but House, I'm at a loss. Mental note: watch House.
