Fond farewell to TV favorites: House

May 21 will mark a bittersweet moment for fans of FOX’s “House.” The series will end, and while fans are undoubtedly eager to see how the show comes to an end, viewers are reluctant to say goodbye to Hugh Laurie’s eccentric character who has been a beloved TV figure for the past eight years.

The finale is garnering a great deal of interest among viewers for its ominous title “Everyone Dies.” In an interview with E! Online, Hugh Laurie gave vague answers to what the finale would entail, implying that it would not be clich?©d, and that creator David Shore left a lot of story lines open. Consequently, it is speculated that the “House” finale is going to be somewhat abrupt. Rumors have also been cir­culating on the Internet that the series finale is going to be similar to the ending of “Lost,” in that a number of old faces will return, some even from the dead. Whether or not there’s any truth to these ru­mors, it’s certain­ly enough to intrigue viewers.

“I’m a little sad to see it end, but the quality started to go down and it seems like they’ve run out of material, so its definitely time,” senior Natalie Schiferl said. “I’m not sure what I’m looking for in the series finale, some sort of feeling of being complete.”

This season of “House” focused on the consequences of Lau­rie’s experimentations and unconventional practice that defined his role throughout the previous seven seasons. The premise of the show was quite different this season, as House’s un­orthodox methods ultimately landed him in prison. Undeniably, it’s been a very different season of “House” than what viewers are used to from the previous season, and it will be interesting to see how it all comes to an end. The series finale will air on FOX on May 21 at 9:00 p.m.
