    I enjoyed both the Swan Song and the finale. I was glad to see House got rid of his crotch rocket and had a touring bike ... of sorts.

    I hope he cashed out his stuff before 'dying'.

    I too felt like it had a big Cuddy-shaped hole in the episode. Even if you aren't a "Huddy" shipper, it still felt like the episode was missing a lot for her not to appear or even be spoke of.

    I also thought the ending was a little less than satisfying. Yes, it's a nice happy thought to see House going off and spending Wilson's last few months with him. But for a character like House not to have Wilson, nor to have the medical puzzles to solve anymore, it practically screams the question - "what then?" And leaving that giant question unanswered is, as I said, not very satisfying. I'm not asking for everything to be tied up in a nice little bow, but that's a lot to leave hanging out there.

    I liked seeing Cutner, Amber, Stacy, and Cameron again, though.

    Anne Dudek was incredibly good looking in this.

    Yeah, the Swan Song was the better of the two hours. Heck, who didn't like them paintballing up the set?

    I found the ending cliche'd and rushed. It just seemed like a big cop-out given the buildup over the past several episodes, only to be rushed into an lame ending, repeating every tired series cliche available to screenwriters. Bonus points for anyone who finds out how many TVTropes entries there are for the ending. I'll even allow the Swan Song to be used.

    I think House (the TV series, not the character) deserved a better ending.

    Of course, I wonder how long until some tired Fox exec decides that hey, they can now do a "reimagining" as [C]hase, M.D. :p. I say maybe 5 years.

    Terrible finale. It would have been much more moving if House had died in the fire and left Wilson alone. Or if we could have seen them run off together in the beginning, have a great time on the lamb for 5 months, then Wilson die with House by his side and House commit suicide after. Or if House had to assist Wilson in his suicide when the cancer got bad.

    Plus there were plot holes galore.

    Sorry, but I have to comment that it's 'on the lam'.

    On the lamb has much different ethical, moral and legal implications! ;)

    Its kind of funny that on the CSI:NY finale she also appeared in Mack Taylor's hallucination.

    As for the House finale this wasn't the worst I've seen and their have been far worst.

    House will become a detective.

    Watch for a 13 episode series about a mysterious private eye who won't tell people his real name.

    Played by Hugh Laurie, of course, but with a British accent.

    Doesn't have to be produced by the same company, of course, because they're not SAYING the character is House.

    It'll just be obvious to the audience.

    As I said, 13 weeks.

    I think they should bring back House and an animated series.
    I would totally watch that.

    Solves all the production costs, etc. and Hugh Laurie just does voice over work so he doesn't have to worry anymore about actually developing a limp.

    What a terrible way to end the series. The retrospective episode was interesting and well produced, but "Everybody Dies" was total garbage. Sure the show has always pushed one's suspension of disbelief, but this just didn't make sense on any level.

    "House and an animated series"?

    MAKE UP YOUR MIND, MAN! Which do you want? House, or an animated series? Fox isn't made of money! They can't afford both just to satisfy you!!!!





    :p

    Wait - because they couldn't get Lisa Edelstein (who turned 46 the day the finale ended, btw), they had someone who was quite unlike Cuddy? No wonder I couldn't place her - almost-Cuddy just wasn't doing it for me.

    Do you mean Sela Ward's character? If so, she wasn't a replacement for Cuddy; she played House's ex, the person who gave Cuddy the authorization to mangle House's leg after he forbade it. (He was in a medically induced coma at the time, so she had the legal right to make medical decisions on his behalf.)
