How about some new opening credits for House already?
Here we are, two seasons removed since House disbanded his trio of cronies to find a new batch of talented doctors to humiliate, and some things haven't changed. Things like House's acerbic nature, his addiction to pain pills, the hospital he works at, Cuddy's very long legs (men, I'll give you a moment...okay) and the weekly patient who has a medical condition that can't be solved until the very last moment. Oh, there is one more thing that hasn't changed...the opening credits.
I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but Jennifer Morrison, Omar Epps and Jesse Spencer (Cameron, Foreman and Chase on the show) don't really have star status like they used to. Heck, sometimes they aren't even on the program. They have been replaced by Kal Penn, Olivia Wilde and Peter Jacobson, who now do the diagnosing. Yet, these three can't get a break. They just get an 'Also Starring' credit after the opening credits roll. Gosh, the original three members of House's team are still shown walking behind him as the credits end.
I can't understand why the producers of the show aren't able to make a simple change to swap out the old names, put in the new ones, and pull a clip from the show where Thirteen, Taub and Kutner are all walking behind House. I mean, they trail him like puppies all of the time! Opening credits are important to a show, especially in an era where there are so few of them (though FOX does tend to keep them more than the other networks). When they feature the names and images of the old cast members rather than the new ones it tells the viewers that the newest members may not be there on a permanent basis. What do you think?
