What do you think of the final picks for House's staff?

Were they the ones you expected to make it? Anyone you wish he had picked instead? I don't think anyone was too surprised by 13 making the cut, although they had me going for a minute when House fired her and before Cuddy told him he had to have a woman on his team. Of course, that was his plan all along... Maybe we'll actually get to find out what her name is before they run out of new episodes. :-) I actually liked Amber (aka Cutthroat B**ch) as a character, but she would have either grated on everyone's nerves really quick or would have had to have some huge emotional transformation in order to stay on the show. So, I'm not surprised she's gone. Kutner has his moments (mostly ones involving nearly blowing himself or the hospital up) but I didn't think he would make the final cut. A nice surprise, but a surprise nonetheless. As for Taub, once he made it through the first few episodes without doing anything particularly interesting, I figured he would make it, because it was kind of like "Why is he still here if he's not going to become a regular?" There was a little bit more color from him the last few episodes, but I still think he's a bit dull, but the fact that he is older, married, and has experience in a very different field of medicine could make for a nice contrast with everyone else. So, what do you guys think?

I though it would be Taub early on. He challenges House, which is something he needs. He even said as much, that he's not looking for someone to parrot his ideas. I thought for the same reason Amber would make the cut. I guess he was more worried about what she might do to get his job rather than help. I'm not sure what the logic was for Kutner and 13, although I think they will be good for the show. I guess he chose Kutner because Cuddy wanted him gone. That still gives him control.

I think Kutner got to stay because House knew Cuddy would not let him have an all-male team. Since he knew 13 was "safe" because of that, he was able to keep both men. I think he had gotten kind of attached to all of them at this point, and didn't really want to fire any of them. Amber had to go because she would cause too much disharmony on the show with her tactics. Plus, it is a TV show, so they had to keep the prettiest girl on the team, as opposed to the more interesting one.

I have not liked this whole interview process I like the old team better. Maybe the new team will just take some getting used to. I really didn't like Amber so I am glad he didn't keep her. I can't beleive we have to wait for January to see new episoded though! I really don't like watching the reruns you know what happens.

Yeah, December rerun month really stinks! I guess they figure everyone is so busy getting ready for the holidays that they don't have time to watch TV. Or maybe they are just keeping some episodes in reserve as long as they can in case the writers strike continues.

I think the selection of these three people by Dr House is fine. I'm hoping that we now will see more of the old team of doctors. They aren't on enough.

I'm pretty sure we'll see a bit more of Cameron and Chase, but I don't think they will be rejoining the team this season. That would just be too many people in that room trying to figure out a diagnosis!

In a nut shell I love how it worked out. Yes I was shocked at the end I was not thinking on his game level. I am however glad all made it who did. I am also glad house is here for another season. He is just too darn strange and funny. :)

Yeah, since Cuddy had tried to get Kutner fired through Cole (the hole panty-raid thing), it seemed pretty transparent when she then told House to keep him on the team. She wasn't ready for House's reverse-reverse phsycology!

The selection was ok, but I miss the chemistry with the old team. I really miss Cameron. Hope to see her more again now that this is over.

Well you could guess he would pick Kutner and Taub because they are played by the most well-known actors of all the group. As for the girl I guess obviously he could not have an all male team besides I think she's better than Kutner.

I am soooo glad Cutthroat didn't make it. She was really annoying, to me anyways. As for the others, it's fine w/ me. We'll see how things take off from here.
