Since April 11th, she’s had over 65 million views on YouTube for a single 4 minute performance, making it one of the most popular videos ever posted. Susan Boyle, a 47 year-old frumpy spinster, had told her mother, who died two years ago, that she would do “something” with her life. She had never been married. Never even been kissed. When she came on stage for the “Britain’s Got Talent” show, she sang so sweetly, so powerfully, that the entire audience was on their feet giving her an ovation only a few lines into the song.

I don’t watch a lot of TV. But I do watch House. I don’t have a medical background, but find the problems that House’s team solves to be interesting and, at times, magical. We like how Gregory House (played by Hugh Laurie) is such a difficult character and wonder how his friend(s) continue to be friends with all the brashness he displays, and why his colleagues love him and their jobs despite his sarcastism, rudeness, etc. And we love the sexual tension between House and Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) and wonder about what that’s all about. And we see these brainy people who may be doctors, saving people, but have pretty messed up lives.
