off subject, but hey i started it... hulu.com is GREAT, esp for family guy  ;D

well i just checked for House and they have the last 5 episodes, not the SjS one though. that one ran on 10-21-08 so i guess that makes it season 4? cause they're on season 5 now apparently. i'm not sure, but i know the name of the episode is "Lucky 13" but its not that serious.

I googled this and found the episode in several places for free viewing (I didn't watch it yet) in case anyone is interested?

Hi everyone

This evening there was a great interview with Hugh Laurie on BBC Radio 4's arts programme:  Front Row.  Go to the BBC web site and you can listen on the 'listen again' feature. 

Amongst other subjects, he talks about maintaining his American accent for the show.  And he talks in his 'real' voice which is a bonus for those of you who didn't realise he was British!

I totally disliked the "House" episode about Sjogrens and would not watch it again.  I was glad to have SJS brought up in some format, but this was really bad.  It did not have to be mixed in with a bunch of questionable behaviors.  There were enough (behaviors) so no one can pick on me for being prude.  Ah, just some good tv without sex, nudity and the like.

McH............that was only a small part.  The Sjogrens was also "connected' to veneral disease and a lot of unnecessary stuff.  The show was very histrionic and that put a lot of extra things in the picture that are not connected to SJS.  We have a hard enough time getting this disease recognized without sex, drugs, VD and so forth.  I don't think we have anyone like that on this board.  Most of us are struggling enough to get thru daily life, let alone going out on drug binges. lol.

Oh Lucy, you've spoiled my image of Sjoggies as 'wild, wild women' (plus a few odd men!)!!!  Are you really trying to tell me that TV shows don't depict real life?!  I'm shocked and disappointed ...

Seriously, I agree that it's a pity that they over dramatise these stories, and it sounds as though with SjS they missed the opportunity to show how diverse the symptoms can be.  I won't be watching but that's only because I can't afford to have cable/satellite TV.

Take care - Chickpea

ps if you want to see Dr House playing a more 'innocent' role you should watch old episodes of 'Jeeves and Wooster' or 'Blackadder'.

   lololololol  maybe a good drug binge is what we all need lol, yeah i agree, pity though, could have used the public awareness :( , still doesnt sound like viewing for a 9 year old, darn it i was hoping my kids might learn something, typical that is!!

   Watched two tame episodes last night of House, just our luck the Sjogrens episode is to raunchy .

Cich    i have a wild temper still, does that count ??lolololol x

Dr. House is very funny in British Comedies. We watch them on our KERA channel, and have for years. He is on Blackadder. If you have not seen this show, I recommend it!
Yes, his American accent is very good.
I love House, and I love his Brit coms.

I just saw the show last night and here is my opinion.
I was glad that House diagnosed her with Sjs without positive bloodwork.
I was glad he recognized that Sjs can indeed attack the kidneys, lungs, etc. instead of depicting it as just dry eyes and mouth.

Beyond that it was just typical TV drama.

I must have missed the part where STD's and drug abuse were linked to Sjs in some way.  I did not get that impression.  The sex did not offend me.  I just saw it as a sideline to the show.  I don't think there was an implication that Sjs had anything to do with it...

Just my humble two cents!
