  • A Great Series with a Wonderful Lead

    Hugh Laurie was the perfect choice for Gregory House, who throughout the series played the role impeccably. His personality was definitely polarizing. I thought his personality was appropriate, considering what he went through and how intelligent he was. It was good to see Robert Sean Leonard as James Wilson, since he is a great classic actor who we haven't seen much since the 90s. Wilson was the perfect character to have as House's friend. Lisa Edelstein as Lisa Cuddy was a great counterpart to House. At the beginning she didn't quite fit in her role, but later developed perfectly into who Cuddy should be, a strong female lead who could stand up to House in a scene. It was unfortunate that she wasn't in the finale.

    Omar Epps was good Eric Forman, House's protge who was an understated character throughout the series. Jesse Spencer and Jennifer Morrison, Chase and Cameron were a good supporting cast that fit their roles very well. The rest of the actors that played doctors, House's support staff also did well, especially Thirteen, Taub, and Amber.

    The cases were a combination of medical mysteries and detective work, which made for exciting episodes every week. I thoroughly enjoyed the series even though I couldn't understand much of the medical jargon. House ended how it was supposed to end and I loved how Wilson was included in the plan. I really enjoyed watching "House", after 8 seasons it was a good time to end the show.

  • Spoiler alert...pfff....

    Please Tony., an interesting take, but allow me to retort with a few simple insights as to how your logic is fatally flawed.

    First, we have to believe that the always grounded Wilson, never the illicit drug user, somehow looses it and resurrects House from the dead in his mind. If that were true, then who rings Wilson during the eulogy? OK, so you could say Wilson imagined it...but what about this...who then placed House's hospital ID under the unsteady leg of Foreman's office table? Who else besides House would have done such a thing with his ID? And who else besides House was in that room when Foreman was messing with that table to begin with and knew about it? That in itself shoots your theory down.

    Of course Wilson had reason to believe there was some elaborate trick by House. House's elaborate trickery is an underlying theme of the show!!!! I knew that House would fake his own death. It was no surprise at all.

    Lastly, when considering the title of the last episode...let ye not forget, that "Everybody Dies" is but a play on another underlying theme of this series, and one of House's most revered maxims....EVERYBODY LIES.

    The final lie, was his own DEATH.
  • The Finale

    What crazy person wrote the ending of this show? From the start of House he has been going through with drugs, relationships, and everything else. At the end you could have allowed him to see some happiness, redemption, love, and a peace of mind. Life has enough craziness and trouble we don't need to see it on tv. Thanks for the disappointment!
  • Now That It's Over . . .

    Now that it is over, and I know how it ends, I can decide if I liked the endings or not.

    I liked the end for Chase and Cameron. I had hoped Chase would go back to Cameron and stop sleeping around, but Cameron could never accept House, or Chase after Chase intentionally killed a patient.

    I was a little sorry for Taub because he wanted to study under House. In the last shot of the team, Taub was gone.

    I like the development of Cuddy's character - that she had a thing for House for a long time and that finally she gave into it. When she is stricken with cancer, she finds that House is nowhere to be found. She has to admit that she cannot be happy with House.

    I thought that House could be happy with Dominika. She was freaky and unconventional and smart. But before House could figure it out, Wilson got sick.

    I liked the development of Wilson's character. When he is faced with death, he reveals that he really wanted to be like carefree Kyle and not the accommodating person that he actually is.

    House's character finally changed only when, with fire all around him and he is about to die, he realizes that life is not always about him. Just in the nick of time, he remembers that Wilson needs him.

    I'm glad the series ended on a happy note. I'm going to miss House.

  • Going to miss house

    the last episode was awesome and it had a happy ending to it, in a way where house decided to sacrifice his medical career to spend whatever time wilson had left with him. all this time ,through all the seasons, the thing that i liked the most was house being miserable and sad. i guess because thats something which most of us can relate to (specially me ) after all most of our lives are not always filled with joy and happiness instead we have to deal with sadness, sorrow and misery.

    the thing that i liked most about greg house is his ability to go endure whatever misery life brought him (like the constant pain in his leg , being alone , no one to love him and even if he finds someone, getting disappointed by them and no human connection) and to move on with it, for that hats off to Greg house. he always stood by what he believes in and after being so damn stubborn he finally decided to change his life for good.. and not be miserable for once in his life....
  • Spoiler alert

    Spoiler alert!

    House is dead, Wilson creates him for support.

    House imagined a relationship with Cuddy whilst on drugs and self pity. Wilson dies the same.

    House dies in the explosion in front of Wilson. During his eulogy Wilson hopes that his friend still lives. He hopes that its all an elaborate trick, another prank by House.

    But it isn't. His friend is dead and Wilson must face his own imminent death alone. In his despair and loneliness Wilson recreates his friend so that he can find the strength to continue.

    House's last words are,"I'm dead, Wilson. How do you want to spend your last five months?" Followed by,"Cancers boring" as Wilson rides off.

    This show is Everybody Dies and its true.
  • Thought you could watch it on here!

    10 thought you could watch it on here. I wanted to see missed episodes.
  • last episode

    Well I am truly sorry that House will no longer be on the air. I enjoyed everything about House, however I am a Canadian and maybe that could be my reason for enjoying this program so much. I truly will miss House.
  • Hopefully there's gonna be another Season for this.. :(

    Dr. Greg House and the rest of the TEAM is very cool .!!!!!! Same with Dr. Wilson and Dr. Cuddy .. :) i mean TWO THUMBS UP for all of them for having this great show. hopefully the directors and the producers as well as the rest of the staffs would come up with another Season.. This t.v show really do fascinate millions and even billions of people not just because of what they always did but also because of the challenges and knowledge that we gain from this.. so pleaseee.. Have another Season for this show !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • how i feel

  • Borderline Bad

    I watched this show when it first came out but after a few episodes I became bored with the overabundance of the lead character. I also think that portraying an MD who takes pain killers all the time & likes to drink Scotch is maybe not the best thing to have out there. Everybody knows that combining pills & booze can be a lethal combination. Add that he likes to drive a motorcycle you have the equivalent of a monkey playing with a loaded gun in a crowded room. I think the quirkiness of the leads personalty appeals to many viewers but I would not want him as my doctor if I was in hospital...
  • Good - but I always turn into a small hypochondriac after watching it

    I have to admit I only watched the first three seasons and some episodes later - but House is really cool.

    I don't think I'd like to have him as a doctor but one has to admit: he's a genius.

    But the show is nothing without his colleagues (the first ones, I mean).

    It is really interesting and often like a thriller how he discovers the disease (and remember: it's never Lupus).
  • Possible endings

    Its been a too long show and dragging on quite a lot recently. Good that its ends soon.....BTW What will be the possible endings.....will House have a epiphany, kick the pill popping habit and go in search of Cuddy? Will house hand over the mantle to Chase (remain active member from the original team) and move on. Will Wilson die of cancer and making House leave the hospital?
  • Suspense and Silly

    Dr House knows how to twist your ear with his words as a stubborn physician. He is very talented, his sarcasm is humorous to me, and his bluntness shows his confidence in his passion to find a cure for the current medical problem he encounters. I believe there are very appealing characters on this show that keeps me glued to the tube. I'm really in shock they canceled this show, but I have learned a lot about the medical field thanks to him and his staff.
  • Love this show

    I have loved House since the beginning and although it has had its ups and downs it has been overall an amazing series. I am sad it is ending although it's probably time. I think the last one is going to be very sad as someone is definitely going to die and I hope it's not House but I fear it might be.
  • Don't stick a fork in it yet...

    When I wrote a review of this show last year, it was barely watchable. I don't know what happened but House is having one of it's best seasons of the entire series. It is genuinely entertaining. I am now actually hoping for another season... Old review: ----------------------------------------------

    I can't think of a show that has gone downhill this quickly.

    House used to be intelligent,intriguing, and most importantly entertaining. The personal storylines of the supporting characters were interesting.

    I knew the story would take a hit when Jennifer Morrison left but the show compensated and eventually it worked again .

    With Season 6, Episode 1, I was excited about the potential direction the show was taking. Would we see a reformed House? Would the show move in a direction where he tries to discover his humanity? No, nothing but disappointment since he left the institution.

    There have been some good episodes and sporadic moments with the show since then but the writers lost themselves and now it's like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

    I thought things couldn't get worse with the end of last season but this entire season has been a disaster and the most recent episode left me wishing for mid-season cancellation rather than further ruin the status of what was once an important part of TV entertainment.

  • Goodbye... Forever..

    When I watch the final episode I will be watching it on a couch, with a noose and a rope hanging next to me - for me to use after the episode, because when House is gone I will have no reason to live anymore! I LOVE THIS SHOW! I understand why they have to end it now.. people are getting bored of the concept, but I will never.. This show has made me laugh like I never did, and cry like I never could - and this is not including the copious amount of detailed medical knowledge that I have acquired over these last eight years. Incredible scripts and creative directors, and the acting alone is divine. I will long for the day when I would come back from a long day at university and watch the new House episode like a kid on Christmas morning. After the 8th season is done I will buy all the seasons in SUPER HIGH DEF DOUBLE BLUE RAY, and re-watch them daily until the day i die.. Goodbye to the best show ever, you will be sorely missed....
  • Go House, Go!

    I used to watch it, but then, after the 7th season in Italy, they changed Gregory House's voice, with a new one... and I just can't listen to that!

    And, I think Scrubs was long way better.

    Anyway... respect! :D

    The best medical drama by far, and the mystery is Immense can't believe it's been canceled -------------------------APPALLED----------------------------
  • good season after 7

    Its getting better and hope it doesnt end maybe 2 more seasons
  • Great TV

    Hugh Laurie is excellent.

    Very good show.
  • house last season

    After much deliberation, the producers of "House M.D." have decided that this season of the show, the 8th, should be the last. By April this year they will have completed 177 episodes, which is about 175 more than anyone expected back in 2004.

    The decision to end the show now, or ever, is a painful one, as it risks putting asunder hundreds of close friendships that have developed over the last eight years -- but also because the show itself has been a source of great pride to everyone involved.

    Since it began, "House" has aspired to offer a coherent and satisfying world in which everlasting human questions of ethics and emotion, logic and truth, could be examined, played out, and occasionally answered. This sounds like fancy talk, but it really isn't. "House" has, in its time, intrigued audiences around the world in vast numbers, and has shown that there is a strong appetite for television drama that relies on more than prettiness or gun play.

    But now that time is drawing to a close. The producers have always imagined House as an enigmatic creature; he should never be the last one to leave the party. How much better to disappear before the music stops, while there is still some promise and mystique in the air.

    The producers can never sufficiently express their gratitude to the hundreds of dedicated artists and technicians who have given so generously of their energy and talent to make House the show it has been -- and perhaps will continue to be for some time, on one cable network or another.

    The makers of "House" would also like to thank Fox Broadcasting and Universal Television for supporting the show with patience, imagination and large quantities of good taste. The Studio-As-Evil-Adversary is one of the many cliches that "House" has managed to avoid, and for that the cast and crew are deeply grateful.

    Lastly, the audience: some have come and some have gone, obviously. This is to be expected in the life of any show. But over the course of the last eight years, the producers of House have felt immensely honored to be the subject of such close attention by an intelligent, discriminating, humane and thoughtful -- not to mention numerous -- audience. Even the show's detractors have been flattering in their way. Making the show has felt like a lively and passionate discussion about as many different subjects as could possibly be raised in 177 hours. The devotion and generosity of our viewers has been marvelous to behold.

    So, finally, everyone at House will bid farewell to the audience and to each other with more than a few tears, but also with a deep feeling of gratitude for the grand adventure they have been privileged to enjoy for the last eight years. If the show lives on somewhere, with somebody, as a fond memory, then that is a precious feat, of which we will always be proud

    It's all over the net..this is the last season...
  • hottest doctors ever!!

    I think H. Laurie is one sexy Dr..

    Also those ones he works with are all great actors and everyone of them I feel like I know personally I've watched it so much.

  • House napping

    I am so tired of see Mr.House degrade everyone and gobble pills all the time. How can you expect us to admire anyone who is a bully and doper? I thought the show is starting to look like interventions...Do something to make this show something I would like to watch again. At least when Cutty was there there was a little humor .
  • Man of the House

    Well first we had to put up with that crap from Cuddy and now this twit Dominika???? Shore and Jacobs, finish the damn series! You've created a great character, and you are slowly turning him into a joke! Thanks a bloody lot. Now I'm certain; you'll probably have some stupid, ***ed ending for what was a wonderful show. Nothing like being let down by another member of the human race.
  • Too bad its ending

    How will I get my medical knowledge now?
  • Great show!!

    It's crazy how House can have such a perfect American accent! Acting is great in this show and his character is definitely what makes it worth watching. Love it!
  • Thank U House M.D.

    mmm ... all seasons of House MD have been very good to the last exception of the 8th season is so predictable and the mix of house without getting involved with someone romantically ... producers have simply killed the series ... Hugh Laurie are the best ...

  • Maybe same old, but always fun!

    I can understand the same old reviews but still they always make it an exciting episode!

    I have watched it for quite a long time but still like it very much, and actually I dont really understand the bad ratings!
  • House is AWESOME!

    Even though I'm not a fan of Dr. Park (she sounds like she is reading her lines) and I thought Dr. Adams, not Foreman should be the new Dean; I'm still a huge fan of the show. I enjoy the new and creative story lines and dialog. House is so unique and entertaining. Thanks for keeping it running. Hoping for Season #9!
