No Big Brother update from me this morning as I have to admit to not watching (WHAT????) but House already fills my 9-10pm slot on a Thursday and I can't desert lovely Hugh Lawrie 2 weeks in a row.

Is it just me or does anyone else find Gregory House strangely attractive? I have to admit to having a bit of thing for him, yes he may be older and he may be grumpy but he's genius and a little bit horny.

The thing is that I have always have a wee soft spot for Mr Lawrie but his transformation in House is amazing, i often forget that when he's not House he's this terribly polite quite posh englishman, I have seen a multitude of british actors who are wonderful simply destroy themselves with american accents, Ewan mcgregors awful american accent in "The Island" springs to mind, although I quite like his american accent in "Big Fish", I think it needed to be a bit stange for a Tim Burton movie though!

Anyway once again I diagress, I think that Our Hugh has done a wonderful job with "House" it's a drama which is everything that "The West Wing" used to be before the first director left, Aaron something, sorry brain not quite working bu I'm sure any WW fans will remember with fondness how the first 3 series were far superior, ahh those heady Rob Lowe moments!! :D

The thing is though, I love House, I still quite like The West Wing, Love Lost (although it frustrates me to death each and every week), adore Desperate Housewives but just don't really get Greys Anatomy, I have tried to get into that one but maybe they shouldn't have scheduled it straight after House as it really makes it look quite weak and trivial after so much drama, often I find myself on the edge of my seat the entire episode of House and for me thats the way drama should be, yes I know he never makes people better who have simple diseases which aren't going to kill them in the next hour but hey no one said drama had to realistic to be good (Again Look at Lost). Oh and did I forget to mention ER which I can kind of dip in and out of. I would say there is a pattern though have you noticed I haven't mentioned 1 English drama, could that be because we are useless at making them, I haven't seen a decent british drama series since last years "Afterlife" with the uniquely talented Andrew Lincoln (YUMMM) which BTW is scheduled to return later this year. I think when it comes to Drama we have to hand it to the US and say "you win, please keep entertaining us"!!
