HOUSE FINALE (SPOILER)


Okay, I've been looking all over the intraweb thingie for this to no avail.

What exactly was the drug interaction that killed sourpuss?

It was the anti-viral drug Amantadine she was taking because she thought she was getting the flu. The crash apparently caused kidney failure which caused the drug to build up in her body and poison her irrevocably.

LOVE House!

I've often thought Smaug and House were related somehow...

I can see the similarities. Maybe that's why I scope out Smaug's posts to see what he's up to that might anger the natives.

lol.....the similarity comment is odder than you know. It has been remarked upon by many.

And, no, I am not a crippled, celibate.

House isn't a celibate, he's into hookers

I thought they meant BRICK House. As in (he's mighty mighty, and he's lettin' it all hang out). Makes more sense than the TV character, really.

How can anyone say House is a celibate or a john
when he was married to Sela Ward !!!!

I seriously wonder if he and Cutty have been at it. I mean, really - she was sleeping in a chair at his bedside. Seems a bit much for just a boss.

Cutty has to be secretly in love with him, why else would any woman put up with his crap On the other hand, I've just broken out in another massive rash (the never ending story) & I'd do whatever House or any doctor wanted if they could solve my problem

One of my favorite songs being played by one of my favorite double acts, on one of the best British TV shows ever made.

Thanks Martin I've never seen Jeeves & Wooster but will be on the look out for DVD to rent. Big fan of British humour & murder mysteries.

Martin's always off topic. Normally of course British humour is the worst thing on television, but that wasn't half bad. Thanks Martin.

Actually, Smaug and Hugh Laurie are a lot alike, too. I think Laurie was typecast.

Laurie is quite the character in real life. Good author, musician and pianist, and comic writer extraordinaire. The song he wrote and sang on Actor's Studio - funny as heck. To hear him grouch on House and then talk with his true English accent is a hoot.

Folks who never saw Laurie in "Blackadder II" are missing a treat....in addition to missing one of the great TV shows of all time.

The character of Jasper in 101 Dalmations didn't "stand out" to me until I saw it again a few months ago - watching it again with my kids made me really laugh as I realized it was "House"

I love House. I thought the finale was great and I think Wilson is going to be blaming House next season for Amber's death. They have hinted a couple of times that he and Cutty got together once. I do think she's crazy about him too because she puts up with his crap. I love House.

Wilson is such a wussy. I don't know how House can stand him.

I saw a production of Shakespeare's "Richard III" last year in Seattle - Richard was a dead ringer for House: not only built tall and lanky like Laurie, but hobbled around with a cane, grumped and complained about everything... okay, House doesn't kill patients for personal gain, but the similarities were definitely there!

I've read that Dr. House is considered the "thinking woman's crush"!

I own every PG Wodehouse book and every Bertie and Jeeves episode. Absolutely brilliant dialogue.
-------------------
No way Cutty and House have hooked up. They have built a major plot on the sexual tension. I had the same thought when she was curled up in the chair, but that was a setup for the future.

Wilson's anger has to be a major plot line going forward, altho at least House underwent the brainstabber thingie to try and save Amber. She was the most unlikeable character. I'm glad they killed her. Yeah, I said it.

Also, of note, snuck in at the end -- the hot chick 13 tested positive for Huntingtons.

OMG - I actually agree with Smaug! I hated the character of Amber and was so glad when she was not chosen for the team, and very unhappy when she appeared as Wilson's love interest!

Can't say I'm actually glad she's dead, as now Wilson will be irrevocably changed over it.

I liked Amber. I thought it was nice that they brought on somebody that was as big an A-hole as House. I liked the fireworks between them.

I had a hard time buying the whole Amber-Wilson relationship though. Usually a woman that strong quickly grows tired of guys that are big wusses. (shudders)

I always love a bad character 'redeemed' and I think Amber definitely qualified. I was really really sad and shocked that she died. I have a sort of 'timing' theory about shows like this and when someone is given a 'doomed' diagnosis 40 minutes into the show, there is usually plenty of time for them to solve the crisis by the end of the hour. (For more 'rules" on House, see my blog post, "House Rules" http://rnmorgan1.blogspot.com/2006/05/house-rules.html)

Speaking of which (and this goes along with the decent Fox programming) who has 2 thumbs and guessed who Gourmegand's apprentice was going to be in the first 25 minutes of "Bones" (pointing thumbs at self) THIS GIRL! My kids hate me! They were sure that it was Hudgins!

I agree with Easy. I didn't buy the relationship in the first place.

And seemingly change of subject, kinda yes, kinda no....

The only character I've ever been totally thrilled with writers killed them off was Yar on Star Trek: NG. Lord - that first agonizingly awful year, every time there was a crisis, we literally yelled at Picard - send Yar!!! Sacrifice Yar!!!!

Never was a cast change so helpful to the enjoyment of a show as that character's so-called meaningless death. Ick! I liked the actress in other shows, so that wasn't the problem - just the character.

My son, who is normally a fairly sensitive kid, despised that character. When she died, he said "Thank god, only it should have been a chainsaw murder."

ROFL that I'm not the only one who hated Yar! Fainodraino is soooooo into Star Trek that he didn't really dislike her (or anyone, probably), but I detested her and was thrilled to see her go.

I don't think of Wilson as a wuss. I think he just appears that way in comparison to House. Amber was just a female version of House, and as we all know, characteristics men show can be charming or manly, but b****y for a woman to display.

I kinda agree with Scifidwarf about Cutty and House. He was at her house while she had on nothing but a robe and she wasn't the least bit uncomfortable. They strike me as old friends who had a fling once to see if it would work and it didn't, but he can't ever let her forget it because, hey, he's House.

Wilson has to appear to be a "wuss" to remain
House's friend....he seems as if he collects
"stray dogs" - much like Cameron, the female
version of Wilson.

Cuddy never slept with House, she's just feels
very safe and open with him because he doesn't
relate to women as sexual toys....
(Unlike Smaug's deliberate "image")

I think Amber was only with Wilson to "get to" House.
And according to his fantasies....she succeeded....
Wilson can't afford to lose another friend, and as
someone said - House did risk his own life for hers

I think the Amber-Wilson relationship was fitting. He likes to be controlled in a way or wouldn't House for a best friend. He tends to pander to the people around him. I think Robert Sean Leonard plays the part well. He's an amazing actor.

I didn't like Yar either but another character I was thrilled to see disappear was Sara Sidle on CSI. I hated her character from the beginning and actually wanted her to be the miniature killer's next victim. I was sad that she survived and was mad that she left the way did because now it's possible that she could come back. Plus they can still carry on her relationship with Grissom at a distance. Aaaagh!!! I hate that. They should have at least killed her and made it meaningful.
