The final episode of House will be aired tonight.

For those of you unfamiliar with the show, it is about a misanthropic doctor with chronic pain.

I'm quite a fan, in part because of the coincidence that the first episode of House aired the day of the accident that started my CP journey (Nov. 16, 2004).

Hey Cogito
I've been watching house for a long time although the past season or so I have lost some interest. It got kind of goofy. Wish they would have stuck to more medical dramas than his crazy antics. Think it might have lasted longer. I hope tonight's episode is a least a good one. The chronic pain thing is what attracted me too. I'm sure it will live on in reruns for quite some time. Who knows it might even turn into a movie at some point. Won't be surprised at all. Anyway, just wanted to add my 2 cents worth. I hope your doing goodand have a great weekend.
Take care.

I did 't realize that this is the final episode. I just thought that it was the last show of this season. I'm gonna miss House :(. I know he's mean, but I could relate with him and the chronic pain. They should keep House on and take some of these stupid reality shows off. That's my 2 cents worth.

Hey Loretta,

Don't be knocking my reality shows, lol (I'm teasing you, you know that).... I'm a TV junkie.... I DVR everything... and, when I can't sleep (often) - I catch up on all my shows - reality, documentary, food network, just about it all.

We all used to watch House.... then stopped for whatever reason. But I am curious how they are going to wrap it all up!

While I do enjoy the show I am less than thrilled with how they have portrayed his use of pain medications. Granted they show him as a functioning addict who probably does need the medications to function, but they still portray him as an addict and too often call in the question of whether or not he needs his pain medicine.

I agree that they overplayed the addiction-card... a cheap dramatic cliche. But he was a character in genuine CP and they did deal with some meaningful issues.

As for the finale, I'm ok with it. [SPOILERS] -- the building was a crucible for change and though it quickly became obvious that he didn't really die, he did change (or so how it was portrayed).
