I read somewhere that house is slated to run through next season. I, personally, believe that the story arcs are starting to get a little boring and dry. I do love the current team. I like the mix of old and new and I've always though of Chase as a strong character and member of the team. I'll bet they miss him in surgery. I don't really like Taub. I think he's poorly cast and poorly written. He hasn't really been important to the show since Kutner killed himself; Kutner is a character I miss. I would have rather seen Chase, Thirteen, and Foreman with Foreman being even more involved in the diagnosis. I know that it would be clsoe to the originals but I would prefer Kutner or a vacancy over Taub. I just don't like his character. Do you think the show can stay fresh enough for another season? I honestly think it may jump the shark soon if the storylines don't improve.
