Well, House has officially crossed the line into nerd-dom. Mind you, we’re all in favor of fan enthusiasm when it comes to television (or any hobby) but this is blurring the lines between procedural drama enjoyment and genre obsession. Reading this we were immediately struck by the fact that last time we saw fan interaction like the kind suggested below was at a Star Trek convention. Seriously, no one should be making fan films, writing poetry or choreographing dance routines honoring medical dramas. After all, it’s we SciFi and genre fans that have the market on this kind of goofy crap. Please let us have that to ourselves.
And for crap’s sake… did they put enough links in this press release?
Anyway, don’t forget to check out the series finale and the preceding hour-long retrospective for House on April 21st.
Via Press Release:
