Beyond the Script

Have you ever watched a show without music playing underneath dialogue or a particular scene? Joss Whedon did it in his season 5 episode of Buffy, 'The Body', and boy was it odd. Music within television is extremely inportant and extremely valuable to a director - often a carefully chosen score can do the job of a page of dialogue, and do it better.

House MD is no exception and within this blog, I intend to examine the use of music in this fantastic show - when is music employed rather than dialogue? Is there anything that the music can tell us about the characters we are watching, or the situation they find themselves in? I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to structure my thoughts, so do bear with me on that one, but I'm hoping that this blog is going to help me get more out of the show when I watch it, and I hope it does the same for you guys too.

I'm also going to look at the episode titles of the two seasons of House, amd examine what they bring to one's understanding of the show - are the episode titles simply a straight reflection of the storyline, or are theree various levels to the titles...indeed, are they a mixture of both?

I hope you enjoy what I have to say, and keep coming back, as I intend to update as regularly as work allows!

Oh this is cool. Keep writing. I suppose some would be obvious, but other's (occam's razor) for example can be really deep. can I contribute. I'd love to. And would like to discuss the scripts episode wise too. If that's okay with you.
