    Opinions?

    The last 15 minutes appear to have been quickly thrown together and added on to what otherwise would have been a season cliffhanger.

    Mrs. Fluffybear and I both voiced are displeasure with the ending which felt like it came right out of a campy 1970's TV show.

    Sorry to disagree but we loved the ending. It was typical House.

    We too were there from the show's pilot through every episode including last ngiht. We were very happy with everything about the "House" finale last night.

    Yes, I'm sure there was a lot of debate about which way the end should go. IMHO they picked the right ending, particularly the motorcycle scene including the music "Enjoy Yourself It's Later Than You Think" by Louis Prima. And the scene where Forman finds House's ID with the background music "Keep Me in Your Heart" by Warren Zevon was wry.

    And I thought the first hour letting us know about all the folks behind the scenes was outstanding.

    Agree.

    Those kinds of brilliant music backgrounds to scenes, as well as plot twists and comedy-laced drama and superb cast made this show the success it was.

    Add me to the group who's been there since the Pilot episode (remember the orange guy?) and thinks the finale was right on par for House. Great ending.

    Ditto. Except...

    ... after seeing a moment of Lisa Edelstein in the retrospective, I was surprised Cuddy didn't have a cameo in the finale at all. I could understand her being completely cut out of both hours last night. But appearing in one and not the other? :scratchin

    Great finale! Am I the only one who thought for a brief moment, that he could be dead?

    More than a brief moment for me. Up until his text to Wilson, I was convinced he was dead!

    Archival footage from previous interviews, I think. The parting was acrimonious to say the least. There was no way she was coming back.

    Edit: Although seriously, as House is dying, there's no way he WOULDN'T have been thinking of/talking to Cuddy.

    My thoughts exactly. It was a glaring chink in the armor, IMHO, and showing her at all in the retrospective held out the promise of seeing her in the finale.

    Keep in mind one was a Hugh Laurie production, the retrospective, and the other was produced by NBC Universal. NBC Universal is who she screwed over, not Hugh. Hugh is probably still good friends with her and asked her to be in his production but she was obviously not asked by NBC Universal to take part in the last episode of House.

    The ending was OK. No super great but OK.

    I remember thinking to myself that sure Sounds like Louis Prima.

    I don't watch the show... but shameless plug for a friend I went to highschool with. His name is Drew Holcomb (and the Neighbors). His song "Live Forever" was used in the Fox promo for the finale. Pretty cool.

    I've only seen snippets of House over the years. Never felt like watching a full program, let alone the full series. There are many other series that I've passed on, some of which I'm sure I would have enjoyed.
