This will be the last season for House.

I actually predict that the last case will, in fact, be lupus.  Or sarcoidosis.

Sad, but I thought something was amiss.  This season hasn't felt right.  It's like two big things were missing.  I can't quite put my finger on what they were, but I know that they were two things I looked forward to seeing each week...two very large things that...gah...I can't think of it right now!

Wierd.

When you go from 20 million viewers to 7.1M in the most recent episode, over about a  5-year period, chances are the show has run out of gas and Fox would want to move on. NBC (their studio produces the show) says it's not interested in moving the show to NBC if Fox canceled it.

I actually preferred the show the first maybe 3 seasons, when it seemed more focused on the procedural aspect and less fixated on House himself (I think I have seasons 1-3 on DVD). Though the more it fixated on House, the better the ratings seem to be, until its 2007 peak. But I probably haven't watched the show much at all in several years now.

I thought it jumped the shark with the Cuddy relationship, but I feel like it's back on track now.

I also think the new hottie is hot.

To each their own, but I would never consider those big things, let alone very large things. To me, thy are in fact pretty small things....

It's a shame this series its ending. Used to watch it regularly, but the sad departure of the actress that played Dr. Cuddi was the death knell for the show. Cuddi was the love of House's life. The actress left because of protracted salary negotations. Not sure how they'll wrap the series now that she's gone, but I hope they don't hitch him with some other woman that will suddenly materialize on the series finale.

Thank god.  My wife loves this show and I just don't get it.  Every episode is the same, they always think it's lupus.

The lupus thing is an in-joke, though.

Heh, I remember when I was a first year med student and all of us were hooked on this crazy new show called E.R. with some dude named George Clooney.

unsurprisingly it looks like it's not going to be a warm and fuzzy ending after last Monday's episode.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Wilson is only expected to live 5 months, and House has to go back to jail for 6;  I bet Wilson hangs on just long enough though.  Chase has left and Taub is already getting his lifeboat ready.

on the matter of wilson:

Spoiler for Hiden:
My god that whole cancer storyline for wilson is just so ridiculously stupid it's painful.  We're supposed to buy into the premise that all of the sudden Wilson is dying?  It's manipulative and moronic.  Oh, and it's "ironic" because he's a cancer doctor.   Roll Eyes  I expected better than junior high drama class level writing from the show's makers.  

p.s. is it just me or does wilde look less than stellar these days?  her brief appearance on house last week was surprising because I almost didn't recognize her.  she dyed her hair, but beyond that she looks different somehow...less exotic.  Don't get me wrong, I'd still cross over a mile of broken glass on my hands and knees just to have her say hi to me in an elevator, but I'd probably consider knee pads now.

I have a feeling that storyline being rushed is due to the midseason decision to end the series.  as for Wilde, yeah, she looked kind of rough but I chalked that up to her not doing so well.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Nope, he's alive. Wilson isn't on drugs.

I had to fast forward through all the subconscious monologues, those never sit well with me since people don't monologue like that. That kind of writing really for finales of shows that really couldn't weave the message into the entire show, or ones that are clearly rushed.

Anyone know if House found religion, or did they stay true with him and he stayed with atheism and found a different reason to be a better person?

I think I'm going to continue to believe House really died.  The alternative is just too contrived and silly.

I think I felt more emotion at the end of the retrospective than at the end of the finale.
