Saying Goodbye to House

May 18, 2012 - Kim Collette
It will be sad saying goodbye to "House." The Fox television show concludes its 8 seasons on Monday....And with that we say goodbye to Dr. Gregory House. Medical mysteries were the core of most of the episodes. And those mysteries almost became formulaic. But, if that began to feel over familiar, House himself never did. Dr. Gregory House only became more and more complex and more and more fascinating.

The House character was a brilliant doctor with a very poor bedside manner, a limp and cane, a prescription drug abuser who only took cases that didn't bore him. When he was bored, the Dr. House was a mean prankster. Many people don't know that House was based on Sherlock Holmes. Like Holmes, House is indifferent to the patients he is helping focusing more on the mysteries of nature that plague the case. Both play musical instruments, take drugs and have trusty sidekicks (House's being Dr. Wilson). What is most interesting about "House" is that the main character is really an unpleasant character who is the main character of a tv show instead of the normal "hero."

I will be sad to see House go. He is the character I think we all wish we could be....someone who isn't afraid to act or say what he wants. There will never again be a more dysfunctional character than House and for that reason I am truly going to miss Dr. Gregory House.

Until next time friends!
