Sometimes when a show runs for a lot of seasons, they can run out of stories to tell. That is not what happened on Monday night on House though, no, the writers just got damn creative in this dream sequence where House faced down with zombies! (click the image to watch)

You know what? If House went in the direction of a zombie apocalypse, I think I’d start watching it again…

House on FOX.

Tonight is an all new episode of House.  With his license back and the show’s status quote returning, who will be a part of House’s “Dream Team”? I’d love to see Foreman, Thirteen. Chase, Cameron, and Taub all part of a mega team of sorts. We’ll see who House picks tonight. House airs on FOX at 8pm.

The 2009 Emmy nominees for Best Drama are: Big Love, Damages, Dexter, House, Lost, Breaking Bad, and Mad Men.

I have to start by asking why we have 7 nominated shows? They really couldn’t trim the list to the 5 best of the best dramas?  Having 7 nominated shows for best drama looks like they are trying to get as many famous people to come to the awards show as possible. It waters down the category and makes a nomination seem a lot less important. Anyhow, onto the list…

Big Love
I’m sorry, but this show never sucked me in and held onto me. I tried it out for a few episodes and I thought it was okay at best.  HBO gets a lot of love at the Emmys, but I think this was the wrong HBO show to get love this year. True Blood (from Six Feet Under‘s Alan Ball) was a series that got better with every episode. It had defined characters and a very interesting world. Everyone knows that the Emmys have a thing against vampires (Buffy never got any love), but they really have to get over their shit. Sorry Big Love fans, but I don’t agree with this nomination.

Damages
I really love this show. For me it is impossible to watch weekly, due to the slow roll out of events and the flashbacks/flashforwards that work towards each other to make each season a complete story.  Three episodes in I stopped watching it weekly and TIVOed the rest of the season. Right when it was finished, I watched the episodes back to back in one weekend. It is that good. Once you start watching it, you keep going.  Storywise, the show delievers a layered mystery with enough twists and turns (that all stem directly from the story) to keep you guessing. Rose Byrne and Glen Close bring their a-games to every episode.

Dexter
This is another show with such great characters.  Michael C. Hall’s Dexter is one of the most intriguing characters on television. We should hate him, but it is impossible. The show walks a very fine line, but walks it well. A very deserved nomination, but I don’t think it will win.

House
This is another well deserved nomination. It is one of only two broadcast shows to make the cut for Best Drama (the other being Lost). The cast is top notch and the stories are engaging and satisfying. It isn’t going to take home the award, but Hugh Laurie is very deserving of a Best Actor statue.

Breaking Bad & Mad Men
I have to be honest here, I have never seen an episode of either of these shows. Breaking Bad doesn’t interest me in the least, and while everything I have heard about Mad Men makes me want to see it, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Either way, no matter how good either of these shows last seasons were, it would not chnge my opinion…

My Pick for Best Drama: Lost
If you read the site regulary, you know about my love for Lost. This past season was easily one of the best seasons of television for any show ever. The focus and narrative flow of the season was perfect, with a completely engaging storyline that never missed a beat. Unlike Damages which is good but hard to watch weekly, with Lost I had to see every episode right when I could. Sadly, I don’t think it will win.  While it has taken home Best Drama in the past, the show just aired its second to last season, if anything I think next year’s finale season will have a better shot at taking home the Best Drama award.

House on FOX.

Truth be told, I usually Tivo House and watch it later in the night (or the following weekend), but with Chuck having aired its season (hopefully just season) finale, I have my 8 o’clock hour free.  This week continues House’s spiral into… insanity? I’m not sure, but he continues to be haunted by visions of Amber, his best friends dead girlfriend. A death that House was responsible for.  In addition to that, House and his team are dealing with the case of a ballerina whose lungs collapse and her skin falls off. Jamie Tisdale and Anne Dudek guest star.

House on FOX.

An all new episode of my of my favorite shows on TV, the Fox medical drama House starring Hugh Laurie, is on tonight at 8pm. One of the best aspects of the series is that it focuses on the puzzle of the illnesses and the trial and error to find out how to save the patients. Unlike other melodramatic medical dramas, we haven’t even learned the full names of most of the doctors let alone be over saturated in their lives. This makes it all the more effective when we finally do learn of just what is going on outside of the hospital.

Tonight’s episode is titled “Painless”, and the team is working on the case of a man who suffers from a chronic and excruciating pain, much like our title character. Along with that we have advancements on both the Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) baby storyline and Foreman (Omar Epps) and Thirteen’s (Olivia Wilde) Huntington’s disease drug trial.

Check out these new stills from “Painless” (click to enlarge).
