Customer Reviews

If you like house or comedy or just like to see a good show house is right for you.
Seth
What stands out about this show isn't so much the medical side of it, but the relationships between the characters and House and his own development and downfall.
MommaMia
The dancing and choreography were exceptional for dramatic actors, and the music was great, very professional for dramatic actors as well.

The relationship between House and Cuddy has been coming, and in season seven it is here. Many have complained about the writer's not doing justice to the relationship. And that is where I strongly disagree. The writers have created a character from season 1 who has been damaged beyond repair. Every relationship with any woman, whether it be Stacy, or even Cameron, has failed. I don't think it could have been more in character the way everything played out this year. Who really expected the relationship between House and Cuddy to be all kisses and hugs? Knowing what you do about the character, you know that this is incredible growth: the act of trying to be with her. But, there is only so much our damaged doc can offer. Whether or not that is enough is something I'll let you watch and see.

(up above is spoiler free, down below is the review for those who have seen the season. If you haven't I suggest reading the above paragraph and stopping)

Let's get into the fabric of this season. It is all about change, all about House trying to be happy. In the first episode "what now" he tells Cuddy they shouldn't be together because he'll eventually do something to make her leave him. In different words it's what he says to Stacy before breaking it off with her in season 2. He knows he is damaged. He knows that anyone who gets close to him will eventually leave. Cuddy becomes an exception to this rule... for 15 episodes, and then like everyone else leaves him.
I blame Cuddy for what ultimately ends the season. She kept pushing House to let out his feelings, even after (in many ways) she tore out what was left of his heart. No one can say that House wasn't trying in the relationship. He was trying a lot harder than Cuddy.

Update: I just saw a pre release screener of episode one of series 8 of HOUSE. I sat there stunned afterwards. It was totally different from anything I was expecting. Hugh Laurie does his usual outstanding acting job. Every other cast member is someone new because he is serving out a prison sentence. I'm not sure what this is. Is it a dream or a psychotic break due to more drug ingestion? I have no idea. It seems fairly real but I'm just not sure. It seems weird that not even Wilson visits him. I know a lot of viewers are not tuning in for season 8 because season 7 was so bizarre, especially the ending. If you are one of these viewers, you may want to reconsider that position.

My original review, filed before above rant:

I am a fan of this show from day one. I am a Hugh Laurie fan from back when no one knew who he was, when he was playing Bertie Wooster with his comedy partner Stephen Fry as Jeeves. Big a fan as I am though, I have to say the quality has been all over the map this season. If you asked me whether to buy it, I'd say "maybe" and caution you that the whole thing might be no more than 3.5 stars.

I still think he is the best thing in the show. There is no one else even close to giving him a run for the money. No one else has his range. His supporting cast varies in how much one can stand of them. Taub's "problems" for me this season have been a real turn off. His problems are all self created and he whines about them constantly. The other three supporting doctors en suite score a little higher with, surprisingly, the new one, Amber Tamblyn, scoring the best. The other two just don't have much to work with this season and overall come off a bit blah.

Faring much better than the team are both Cuddy and Wilson.

I'm a HUGE House fan, I own all the seasons and I never miss the show on T.V. I realize that this season was a little different than past seasons, but its because House and Cuddy were dating and they had to show House's "softer side". You know the writers had this coming for us, they had to creatively show House as himself, as well as someone who actually cares about something or someone. I feel for the storyline of season 7, they did an awesome job. House is still an ass, the relationship kept the storyline interesting, and the patient cases were still interesting mysteries. The only thing I would suggest about this show is give House more clinic duty! That part always cracks me up. I don't believe this season has gone downhill at all, especially when you see the season finale!

It's always interesting to read the one-star reviews of a popular show. At the time I am writing this there are ten. One is from a troll and two are from people dissatisfied with the purchase and the packaging respectively, neither of whom mention the show. The other seven are from people who all claim to be fans of 'House' who say that this season is so bad it only deserves one star. Hey, folks- it's the same show. The cast is largely the same, the writers, directors and producers are the same. The show didn't suddenly go from the best thing on TV to a one-star show. House is still House after all these years and if you want to substitute 'crazy' for 'House', that would be equally true.

This season has highs and lows like every other season. I enjoyed some episodes very much, others somewhat less. The introduction of Martha Masters was successful; the episode 'Last Temptation' was one of the best of the season (and incidentally gave Wilson the rare opportunity to deliver the funniest line of the episode). 'Fall From Grace' was also a great episode with a real twist in the tail. I didn't care for the penultimate episode very much, just too dark for me, but the last episode delivered a suitable punch for the series conclusion.

This isn't my favorite season of 'House', but it's still a very good show. I'm looking forward to seeing what will happen next season.
