Blowing The Whistle
9 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

By this time, we all know House M.D. is over; this season is the show's last. I can't yet see how they will choose to end it, but I do know, based on what's left of this show, I fear it will be idiotic, ridiculous, and sad. The better choice would have been to end after season seven with House and Cuddy together, and House still struggling to improve himself and stay sober, but realizing that's what he wanted. This show committed suicide when Cuddy broke up with House pretty much out of left field. House struggling to improve himself was far more interesting than House acting out and behaving like a juvenile jackass. The juvenile jackass stuff was only funny and entertaining in the beginning. After we got to know House better, it was far more interesting to see him try to protect the incredibly sensitive heart buried deep inside, and try to figure out how to deal with various situations when that heart got in his way. This episode taunts us with the idea that House's health is in jeopardy, reminding us long-time fans that it very well could be. House has been a long-time, hard-core Vicodin addict since before the show ever began. We've seen Vicodin wreak havoc on his health and his personal life many times before. It isn't at all out of the question to think it will do so again. As Chase points out, even House expects that to happen. Using House's health was, at this point, a pathetic and poorly executed attempt to hold our waning attention. The medical cases in this show have been increasingly boring, even if there have been a few good ones thrown in. And the non-medical components of this show have been suffering since the original team broke up. House's attraction and indeed deep feelings for Cuddy carried the show through two seasons before the writers put the two of them together—which was a very effective way of maintaining the audience's attention in the show. But here in season eight, Cuddy is gone, most of the original team is gone, and the two new additions are seriously boring—Thirteen's brief appearance at the beginning of this season brought that into sharp relief. I love House, and I love this show. I have been a die-hard fan since it premiered ten years ago. But as season eight drags on, I'm feeling more and more like I'm watching a very slow-moving train rolling down the tracks towards a car stalled on the tracks. I realize the collision is inevitable, but I wish it would just happen already.
