So it was lupus after all?
 
2012-02-08 08:15:23 PM  
Final episode:

It's Lupus.
 
2012-02-08 08:16:18 PM  
I knew it!

Totally beats my crap lupus-flavored submission.

TV Series have to end sometime. House has been on 8 years, it's time to end it.
 
2012-02-08 08:20:31 PM  
The show has sucked ass for 3 seasons now and I don't even watch at all anymore.

But it is still sad to see it go.
 
2012-02-08 08:23:09 PM  
They canceled a doctor show? Nooooo! Because they don't make doctor shows anymore. Just as long as we're not losing any more cop and lawyer shows because they're facing extinction.
 
2012-02-08 08:23:11 PM  
It should have wrapped up last season.
 
2012-02-08 08:24:29 PM  
Eight years in is not bad. And it seems it isn't going out on that bad of a note.

Such is life. I doubt Laurie is retiring, however. He'll probably just do some more stuff on the side that is the exact opposite of House, however.

Last episode I saw there was a building on someone. I actually hadn't really watched for a while before that. Last season I watched was post-psych ward.
 
2012-02-08 08:28:38 PM  
Great show, had an excellent run with 90% of the episodes being some good to great TV. House isn't exactly going out on top, but they definitely have nothing to be ashamed of. It's time.
 
2012-02-08 08:29:27 PM  
eh, it's about time anyway. I still enjoy House himself, but the 2 new women aren't that great.
 
2012-02-08 08:30:27 PM  
It has been better this season. All I hope is that it gets a good ending. Nothing worse than a show getting killed mid story arc.This bit however made me laugh.
FTFA: "Another factor in the decision has been the performance of a few of Fox's new dramas, Bones-spinoff The Finder, House companion Alcatraz and fall dino drama Terra Nova"

Every single one of those shows will be dead with in two years.
 
2012-02-08 08:31:09 PM  
Still watch for Hugh Laurie, been a fan going back to Blackadder and the shows with Stephen Fry. The drama was really over for me at the end of season five.
 
2012-02-08 08:32:08 PM  
I think the best two eps of House were House's Head and Wilson's Heart

I'd wager Bones will be around longer than its spin-off.

...unless they really ruin the show with the baby.

As for House... Good. 8 years is one too many. I firmly believe in the Star Trek "7 years and out" rule for most series. Sure, if it's something like Doctor Who, or Law and Order, where you can have full cast and production crew overhauls and not miss a beat, that's one thing... but a show like House... It's just time for it to go.

...and for House to commit suicide.
 
2012-02-08 08:34:53 PM  
So, the show was made by NBC - and NBC has the option to pick it up, but won't?

This is why you're in last place, dipshiats.
 
2012-02-08 08:35:09 PM  
Suicide.


My prediction for House's end.

Usually getting the male and female lead together kills the show almost instantly. I'm impressed that it didn't.
 
2012-02-08 08:38:54 PM  
Fark! I submitted the exact link with the headline It's Lupus at 7:01PM EST..

No more fark for me. :^(

/Wonder how reddit is doing.
 
2012-02-08 08:39:52 PM  
1) This should make a fair amount of Farkers 'happy'

2) Gotta love the guy who says it's sucked 'since Season 3' and he doesn't watch it anymore; really? Then how do you know it sucks, moran?

3) Idiots: they are everywhere.

because the dynamic is still there now, because we get to see their two very different approaches to life clash when raising a child, and even more protective Booth in the field. it should be great
/fractals on bones that cause my magic computer to explode, ZOMG!
//at least they got rid of that matrix hologram crap from season 1

/The Finder is fun. The lead is a tv Ryan Reynolds/Sean William Scott, hes got that sense of humor
 
2012-02-08 08:41:53 PM  
Honestly 5 years is a good run... after that shows tend to get stale.
 
2012-02-08 08:42:36 PM  
I don't care what anybody says, I still like it. I recognize its faults, but I still find something in every episode that makes me glad I watched. But I can let go when it's time. And while I could enjoy this show for years to come if they kept making it, I'm ok with seeing it end now.

No, it makes sense.

Everyone's contract is up after this year. Contract renegotiations will probably mean either larger salaries or people will leave. And I doubt Universal will give anyone more money, since their unwillingness to pay more is why Lisa Edelstein left after last season.

So, NBC will get nothing more than a long in the tooth House-lite, probably missing Wilson (who wanted to leave after last season anyway, IIRC) among others, and the show will cost a fortune because it's been on the air so long. And, who knows if it will get the same ratings on NBC it did on Fox. I mean, people actually watch Fox. NBC? Not so much.

I just hope my Fringe is safe.

wildsnowllama: Suicide.


My prediction for House's end.


First, they killed my favorite character, Cut-throat biatch.

Then, they killed my favorite character, Kutner.

My interest in the show waned, but I would totally watch a Cut-throat biatch Goes to Whitecastle porn finale, with House having to run on his bad leg to get in on the action...

I enjoy the character but grew tired of the formula. Too much of the "let's over-analyze each others' motive" dialogs, patient getting better than suddenly much worse (cue commercial), followed by the "aha!" moment 5 minutes before the show ends.
 
2012-02-08 08:51:00 PM  
Dammit, just in time for the real Princeton at Plainsboro Hospital to open.

They should just make a show starring House and Dr. Cox and chuck the rest of the shiatty support characters.

Laurie peeked with Stewart Little.

They should give the black guy his own show.
 
2012-02-08 08:56:46 PM  
As a House fan, I have to agree that it's time for it to end on a semi high note. Please no seinfeld clip show finale. Worst finale ever.

Cuddy never remarried. She and Wilson have four daughters and will celebrate their 39th wedding anniversary in June.

Dr. Gregory Hous never returned home.
 
2012-02-08 09:11:08 PM  
good riddance.
a show about a doctor addicted to Vicodin? who needs it?
 
2012-02-08 09:11:41 PM  
Finally!, the sweet embrace of death for the series. It's been dragging for 2 or 3 seasons so it's probably the best time to end it before it just becomes an even bigger abomination.

Also, if Stephen Fry doesn't do a cameo before the end or Laurie doesn't put out another blues record after this imma cut a biatch.

/Seriously, go do another album Laurie, forget House.
//Or maybe just have it be Chase, M.D.?

2012-02-08 09:11:51 PM  
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.

Well, you're a good two seasons late on that one, dipshiat.

I dunno, I'd watch a House-Dr. Cox show religiously.

I don't mind Charlyne Yi as much, I just think she's out of place. The other chick is just "oh shiat, Olivia Wilde's not coming back", but with worse acting.

This brought tears to my eyes. My late mother turned me on to this series. We always watched it together live. I started watching it with her after American Idol. She died back in '08. She never even got to see House and Cuddy get together. I hope it has a great ending.
