I thought I had deactivated over there and I'm still getting notifs, so I saw this open post and thought I should re-post it here, because well, you'll understand why when you see it:

Watch this clip from an upcoming episode of House. No, seriously, go watch it right now. I'll wait.






I KNOW, RIGHT?

So this episode is going to make me either very happy or very angry, depending on how they handle it. [info]shinydinosaur found this via [info]house_wilson.

Excuse me while I go flail for a while.

TBH, I'm worried they'll screw it up completely /o\

I mean, I haven't watched House from the third season, but still...

This is generally true. It's fairly common for House to prove him wrong about That One Patient, even though everything coming out of Wilson's mouth is completely legit and it's fairly obvious that he is in the right.

I'm not sure if they do it to have a dig at things, or to make fun af things. But I do find it less annoying than when Bones capitulates on bizarre issues she has the upper hand on, so that's something.

I'm just imagining a similar trailer where the bet was over whether House could find a medical reason that somebody was gay (and presumably cure them...)

But what I described there *was* only based on the clip! It doesn't really matter what the result is, the mere fact that it's considered a reasonable plotline for the show tells you something.

(possible results I can think of: he cures her, I stop watching House forever; he cures her, but the husband actually is asexual, and it all ends in tears and people suing House, which would be pretty horrid all around; he finds a condition but she refuses to be 'cured', which would still be pretty horrid (and pretty unlikely, given the formula for House medical plots); he finds a condition that might cause lack of sexual interest and 'cures' it, but she's still asexual afterward (the only possible outcome that wouldn't make me scream at the TV, and probably the least likely of the above.))

Also, I am totally willing to take a bet that asexuality is treated as synonymous with low libido/difficulty with arousal through the entire episode.

House has been... not-awful when it's played with other alternative sexualities, actually, so. I was going to say that for House to be completely wrong about something like this is the kind of thing the show saves for something *really* special, though - the kind of arc that would end with House and Wilson getting ace-married.

Then I remembered that the only other show I know of that had a one-off asexual character in an episode *did* end with the main bromance getting ace-married, so maybe there's hope? :D

I thought they already did the ace-marriage thing :P

I'll be watching it... just to see. I'll probably be holding my breath the entire time too LOL

Heh, did they? I must have missed that.

(In Boston Legal they *actually got legally married*. After a court ruling wherein a judge declared that presence or absence of sexual attraction between the parties had no bearing on the validity of the marriage. After that the metaphorical kind sort of pales. :P)

Drive-by HOLY CRAP:

I have not seen that show, but I may have to now. What season did that happen in?

With the clarification that neither of the parties to the marriage identified as asexual (they were two men who both id'd as straight but wanted to get married anyway, just because they loved each other): it was the very last episode of the show, so that would be 5x13, but they'd really been building toward it since, oh, season one, when Denny took Alan out for a fancy candlelit dinner and proposed they sign next-of-kin and medical paperwork for each other. ^_^

I forgot all about that! Yes, well, I don't see house doing more than metaphorical anytime soon.

This. (I remember an episode with Olivia Wilde's character and on the point of her bisexuality -- with Wilson's keen interest if Wilde's character had ever engaged in threesomes. Wilde's character had to correct him on that. Something to the effect of: 'You do know bisexuality doesn't mean to actually be together with two people at once?')

Well, I guess we'll see if the unfortunate part is the way that the blurb was written or the way that the episode was written. And you're welcome.
