You're right now that I think about it. Her character was sort of losing momentum.

Cameron just wasn't any fun after the first season. The writers wrote her into a corner where she was always damaged goods or had something wrong with her mentality or was too vested or caring too much, leading to her own downfall and then turning dark and blaming House and Chase for everything and being that woman on the high horse pointing fingers when she herself was the problem. Luckily Chase escaped from this and become a full character again.

Unsurprisingly yes. She was at the point where her character could go no where else and she was boring as sin. It was essentially all down hill when they decided House/Cuddy not House/Cameron since they were shoe-horning her in.

So far I have his addictions at Drinking, Ibuprofen, gambling but I am pretty sure I've missed something and I am not even 100% sure he's addicted or just doing it to see how long it takes for someone to try and stop him.

Also, is it just me or does his leg only really seem to hurt when he's around Cuddy or when Cuddy is mentioned?

You forgot his ongoing addiction to porn (and the director's commentary)

I also like how the focus is now on Taub's cheating and how they aren't playing it a morality thing. It's just there as part of who he is. Surprised he gets so much female attention. He should give other short, bald men tips (like George Costanza).

If George Costanza were a plastic surgeon/diagnostician making 6 or 7 figures a year he'd probably get quite a bit of female attention, too!

Money is power and power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.

Taub also seems to have a decent amount of charisma.

Well this is the most recent thread I could find. No doubt it'll be moved to the new "Food and Entertainment Forum" within a few posts.

Anyway, season 8 and the series over in two episodes. It grew stale a few times - but I'm sad it'll be gone.

I don't know if stale is the right word, but the show is played out. I'll miss it though, brilliant in so many ways.

I'm still a massive fan of House. I am going to miss it very much.

^+1. Definately sad to see it go. Mind you I didn't really get into it until season 5 or so.

I enjoyed the road trip episode. I can't wait to buy a Blu Ray set of the show! Hope it has some cool extras!

Don't read if you have not seen S8 E20.

Spoiler!


BTW, the "nurse" played by Bobbin Bergstrom is credited with being in 132 episodes! She is a Registered Nurse in real life.

It's about as formulaic and predictable a show as you can get, and not much in the way a character arcs, yet I kept coming back eagerly, season after season, episode after episode. A true testament to the writing and acting.

Sad to see it go, but good not to see it hang around long enough to get truly stale or jump the shark.

The whole series on Blu-ray would be a definite add to the nuclear bomb shelter

Bump for 13 being hot
Bump for the second last episode being over
Bump for me being sad.

Don't we all.

Unfortunately, I doubt it will happen. I have a feeling it is not going to be happy at all.
