It was a shocking death, no doubt, Kutner committing suicide on “House.” Viewers were upset in TV blogs but felt better when they learned that Kal Penn, who played Kutner, wanted to leave the show to take a job at the White House, a profound career change. Penn seems like a nice guy, playing a popular character, but hey it’s only a TV show and thus it set up a powerful, well-crafted storyline. As executive producer David Shore said to EW: “The lack of reason behind it — the lack of answers — was what I responded to and is what I got excited about. House, the man of answers, doesn’t have an answer about this guy who he has worked with for two years.”
