My husband likes watching TV for two reasons - one, to catch up on the news, and two, TV makes him fall asleep. Which is why I was so surprised when I started to watch House (I borrowed the complete season 1 and 2 DVD from my eldest sister Elena, I couldn't wait for it to be shown on AXN, especially since Jumong changed my viewing habits), he actually watched it with me and didn't fall asleep. Imagine my surprise when I turned around - expecting him to either be snoring or drooling - I found myself looking into wide awake eyes and he even asked me, "Are you going to turn it off? I'm still watching."

I guess House had stirred some forgotten aspiration from my husband when he wanted to be a doctor. I remember one story he told me when his pet died and he tried doing CPR and cried his lungs out when his pet didn't revive. I've tried getting him hooked on to Alias and CSI, but both shows only put him to sleep. I don't know if it's House's sarcasm that keeps him awake long enough to watch 2 episodes or just all the blood and intestines you see when watching the show. In any case, I'm just glad he found a show aside from the news that he actually 'enjoys' watching.

The only problem I have now is that AXN is still showing season 3, and he's already scouring every DVD store he passes for season 4 . Either he'll be content watching reruns, or he'll succumb to withdrawal symptoms. ^_^.
