ARGH! I'm so frakking peeved at House. I'm only watching for character development since the stories suck.

OK, so how does a deaf person who has never heard sound since the age of 4 and has had no speech training or any training with a cochlear implant and yet can separate noises and words and can magically speak somewhat coherent words? That takes months if not years. And at his age, it probably would take years.

While it is totally House to have him give someone a cochlear implant, it's horrific that the writers are making it seem like a magic cure for deafness even if they're taking into account Deaf culture and attitude about cochlear implants.



Oh, psssh... there's no spoilers. I could rant about the spoilers too but I'm not.
