House 8 Seasons 2012

Season 8
4.6 out of 5 stars (533) IMDb 8.8/10

Entering its eighth season, House has been honored with four Emmy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards. two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and three consecutive People's Choice Awards for Favorite TV Drama. Last season, House and Cuddy finally decided to take their relationship to the next level, but struggled to find a balance between their professional and personal lives, and ultimately, Cuddy made the very emotional decision to end their relationship. As the season comes to a close, when House's attempts to mend his relationship with Cuddy fall short, he's compelled to take drastic and possibly irrevocable measures that could forever change the course of their relationship.

I am going to write two reviews. One will be spoiler-free. The other will delve into the final season of this amazing series.

Spoiler-free:

How do I sum up a show that has influenced me so greatly without giving anything away about the finale, or the episodes that lead up to it? I think the answer lies in House as a character. I have to assume if you are reading the review for the final season of a show that has had eight, that you are at least somewhat familiar with it. I am going to assume that because there is no way to talk about the character as a whole without going over the past seasons. I will not spoil eight at all, but I will talk about seven in this review, and how it ties into eight beautifully.

So, here we go. House is as damaged as a character comes. He has tried to find love, with Stacy in season two, and Cuddy in season seven. Some can argue there was even something between he and Cameron in the first season. House is capable of love. He loves more than most do, but in a way that is guarded behind cynicism, sarcasm, and avoidance. He sabotages every relationship. Cuddy made his fears come to life in "Bombshells", the season seven episode. It ultimately leads to what many call the "jump the shark moment". House drives his car through her living room. To me it was brilliant, and completely in character.

What the season seven finale left were a lot of questions. Many felt like the House they had watched over the years would never have done something so destructive. Season eight had to be about redemption. And my fellow fans, the writers hit it out of the park. He paid the price for the crash. Due to a negotiation fall out Lisa Edelstein's final scene in the show was last season, after House gives her the hair brush back.

The long-running medical drama's final season picks up with House facing the consequences of Season 7's destructive act against his ex-girlfriend Dr. Lisa Cuddy -- he's in prison, where we learn he's been the better part of the last year.

Although House is no longer a doctor, his basic nature means he's unable to stay away from puzzles, especially when they concern medicine -- meaning, House is a frequent visitor to the prison clinic. In the season premiere, "Twenty Vicodin," Dr. Jessica Adams (Odette Annable) is a bit wary at times, but despite the reasons for House's being there, Adams quickly deduces that this man is a medical genius from whom there's lots to learn.

After much wangling on the part of House's former team member Dr. Eric Foreman (Omar Epps) - who is now the Dean of Medicine, taking over for Cuddy - House is able to work at the hospital again. The only problem is, he no longer has a team - during the past year, everyone scattered to other parts of the hospital. Foreman also refuses to give House a departmental budget. But of course, being House, neither is much of an obstacle for him. He lures Adams away from her prison job to come work for him for free (for the time being), and also acquires Dr. Chi Park (Charlyn Yi), a hesitant young Asian woman who seems to have lost favor in her old department due to a surprising act, and now needs to find another position ASAP.

After a time, House also persuades his old team members Dr. Chris Taub (Peter Jacobson) and Dr. Robert Chase (Jesse Spencer) to return.

Karolina Wydra also returns as House's green card wife Dominika, the two forging something like a real relationship as they get caught by immigration officials and must live together to convince everyone of their sincerity.

"House, M.D. November 16, 2004 - May 21, 2012

I love this show and will always be a fan of the series, but it has continuously been going downhill and I must admit has not been on my favorites list. Although "HOUSE, M.D." had a great run, I felt it lost everything that once made it such an outstanding show... a couple seasons ago.

Aside from the previous comments, I will miss this show for three reasons. One being, it was once a spectacular series and it's sad to see it end without returning to its original glory. Two, the interaction between House and Wilson has always been a big highlight of the show, to me. Lastly, I will miss Hugh Laurie. I feel no one could have played a better Dr. Gregory House.

All and all, I recommend season eight if you are a fan and want to follow the show until the end.

After having watched season eight, I was thoroughly disappointed. The caliber of writing was dumbed down to cheap jokes, hookers and lost the intelligence and brilliance that once made this aging show shine. Storylines were not followed through properly or were just hastily dropped. As much as I love Hugh Laurie, he just wasn't given the material this season to really showcase his acting capabilities as had been the case in previous seasons, even "Twenty Vicodin" fell short of that goal. The arc at the end of the season was overplayed and overamplified in a last ditch attempt to add some melodrama. What made it more disappointing was that it focused more on Wilson than House, which was off-putting as the show crawled to a close.

I did make a valiant effort to try and embrace the changes (both the expected and unexpected)but something continued to feel off for me.(The loss of Lisa Edelstein as Cuddy was a presence very much missed and basically served as the giant elephant in the room for the entire season.) The show just lost its overall spark and appeal and fell terribly short for me. The new characters added to this season reduced the show to an unfortunate grade of "C" in my opinion, as Charlene Yi's lack of acting abilities were blatantly obvious and Odette Annable's inability to add nothing of substance to her character was just frustrating. There were a few good episodes in the bunch, but overall it was a lackluster season. Even the finale was a bit of a disappointment as it was far from an original concept.(Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would be shaking his head.) It was almost a recycling of previous ideas the show displayed to garner interest with the addition of borrowing a page from the writer of Sherlock Holmes himself.
