  • As annoying a character as House, but without being funny.

    By the end of this show I wanted the killer to shoot the star when he pointed his gun at him. That should tell you something about how truly irritating he was. I get the impression someone wanted to create a show like House - a brilliant yet antisocial star with irritating habits who solves mysteries, although these are the more usual criminal mysteries rather than medical. The problem is that while House (the character and the show) is funny and entertaining enough to allow the audience to overlook his manifold flaws long enough to love the character, this "hero" is not. He is simply annoying and irritating, and upon learning that he is responsible for driving a man to murder, however indirectly, does he feel a smidgeon of guilt? No he goes back to his golf game. At least he doesn't win, but it still would have been far more satisfying if he had been shot.
