Last night on tv's Dr House, MD, House finally slept with Cuddy!! But it turned out that he didn't. SPOILER ALERT: this made the internet, and Times critic Gina Bellafante, feel very :(
And so we got this admission of slash fantasies, printed in the pages of America's Paper of Record:
It is not merely the unrelenting push-pull of the show's writing, but the "His Girl Friday" chemistry between the actors Hugh Laurie (House) and Lisa Edelstein (Cuddy) that inspires otherwise reasonable women to bizarre, time-consuming digressions of fantasy. By "otherwise reasonable women" I am not referring to the cohort of [YouTube fanfic montager] Duchesscloverlys but to the person typing these words on my laptop.
I didn't care about House & Cuddy.
I was more interested in the patient with dual personalities and all the discussion of left/right brain. The restaurant scene was great!
Actually, the show would be more interesting if House & Wilson were intimate.
And thus, you need never again question the continuing popularity of tv's House: The Jerky Doctor Who Solves Mysteries.
