"But I would imagine, and I'm saying this as somebody who's watched plenty of the shows that you're talking about, that in directing a "House," there's something formulaic about it. That is, you know, "House" will be wrong for the first 40 minutes of the program, at least, and he'll do something terrible to a colleague, and by the end, after an enormous medical bill has been rung up testing the patient, they'll figure out what it is, and there'll be a, you know, kind of a half-satisfying conclusion to the program."

That description left out my favorite part of the formula: when House is talking to someone about something totally unrelated and has his inevitable epiphany, which solves the diagnosis.  That usually happens right around the 40 minute mark.  Cheesy

I agree with you that it's getting old.
