Dr. House has left the building...

Guest Author - Amy Romine

His addiction, emotional paralysis, and overbearing and yet justified arrogance has entertained the viewing audience for eight years. Pulling in several Emmy nominations and wins for Hugh Laurie, the title character actor, this is a drama that we will remember fondly long after its departure.

In what is now to be known as the final season of House M.D., we have been entertained with the usual House conflicts, internal and external, interesting medical anomalies, and new characters added into the fold.

House is and will always be House in his handling of personal and or professional conflicts. Has his stint in jail had any effect? Not much, except for the introduction of Dr. Jessica Adams who in her own way reminds me of the long since departed Dr. Cameron.

The overall appeal of the show is still at its core medical mystery. Dr. Houseís antics definitely add to the fun, and the way he comes to his conclusion is always interesting to watch.

Can I say I will miss House M.D. next year? My answer is undecided. Kind of a cop out, but to be honest, House has moved to the bottom of the list in my TV viewing. This is not because of lack of drama or quality of writing, it is because simply, I know the character, and now I want to know others. Even with the parade of support casting, the theme of House is the same.

If House would start another year, it would continue to fade into the background and eventually be forgotten. Which, frankly I would rather not see happen. Ground breaking characterization as it is, House opened the door for character we donít always like but seem to love. Making the spectrum of accepted and cherished protagonists wider and deeper, and opening the doors for other break though characters like Walter White (Breaking Bad), Dexter (Dexter), Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson (The Closer), and Patty Hewes (Damages).

Dr. Gregory House will soon be gone but not forgotten. He will walk in the TV hall of fame with others like, Trapper John M.D., Quincy M.E, Marcus Welby, M.D, and Doogie Howser, M.D. Wonder what would happen if we got them all in a room? That would be a conversation worth listening to.
