Robin and I have been a fan of Hugh Laurie since we discovered him years ago in the TV series “Jeeves and Wooster”. We have also watched just about every episode of “House” over the years. While we mostly enjoyed it, especially the early years, it was getting a bit long in the tooth. Still, it was a cut above most shows, even on a bad night.
This past week we watched the final episode which was terrific and had a perfect ending. It was preceded by a hour long retrospective of the series’ eight seasons. The retrospective covered just about every aspect of the show and it’s creation. It interviewed and paid homage to the writers, producers, directors, grips, set builders down to the caterer. There was one glaring exception. Not one mention of the music! WTF! No mention of the theme music “Teardrop” by the trip-hop group Massive Attack. No mention of any composers or music used throughout the last eight years? Laurie is fairly talented musician himself and at times playing piano and guitar on the show. So I wonder what the real story is about that glaring omission. As I said, WTF!
