They say in television that when you ‘jump the shark’ you are no longer making the same show you started out with. That’s what happened when Fonzie water skiied over a shark (literally) in the laer years of Happy Days.
Next season in House, Dr. Gregory House could be spending quite a bit of time in a psychiatry ward, as a patient. It remains to be seen for how long. It’s certainly a very interesting premise, but is it the show we all started out watching?
And while House is in many ways just a cop show where the crims are a disease, we loved its early years when it was just him and his team of three. These days they are barely visible.
Here’s the trailer for the next season.
