Yeah, everything about it, especially the "nurses strike" subplot just screams "thrown together after the writers' strike so we'd have enough episodes to round out the season".

Good point.  What the hell were the writers doing during their 100 days off?  I'm a writer and if I ever got 100 days off from writing I'd come back with so many fresh ideas we could do six more seasons!  I don't get it.

Union writers aren't allowed to have ideas during a strike.  It's in the rules.

Okay, technically they aren't allowed to do any writing for the screen during a strike, so while they can have ideas, they aren't even supposed to jot them down.  That cramps the creativity.

Yeah, the board has neglected this show of late, but I thought the final couple of episodes were brilliant.  Perhaps a little goofy in its premise, but I think we might see the House character turn a corner from here.  Oh, and to be pervy for a second: the striptease from Lisa Edelstein was awesome!  ;D

The finale was hands down the saddest thing I've seen in a long time.  And amidset all the sadness, they just had to throw in those Iron & Wine and Bon Iver songs, just to really push me into numb depression.  THANKS HOUSE.

There was pole dancing and a schoolgirl outfit.  It was a wonderful 2 minutes.   :)

Some brilliant television right there.

So... just curious... had you been in Wilson's position... would you have awakened her?

I don't know if I could do that... really sad.

My friend and I as we watched started yelling at the TV "NO!  Don't wake her up!"  I don't know, to each his own, but I don't think I could have done it.  I couldn't wake someone up to tell them they're going to die. 

What saddened me most is that Amber was my favorite new character.  I like her WAY better than 13.  Shoulda killed her off instead.   >:(

13's attractive, but she's offering nothing new as a character, and House has a problem with too many characters at the moment.  Ditch 13 and the older guy and let the original 3 and Cuddy have some more screen time.

I like the new guys personally.  I never really cared for Cameron & Chase and Wilson has his moments.  I always felt like they wrote those three as uber bland to make House look more interesting.  Cutner actually has a personality and 13 has her moments of uncertanty which is good and the Huntingtons adds some drama and Taub has had trouble with sexual harassment.  Really they're meant to help House, he is always has and always will be the main focus of the show. 

Although Amber was starting to grow on me, I think this will finally affect the relationship between House & Wilson because at the start of every episode Wilson is all buddy buddy with House no matter what he did the previous week.  This is finally going to change things and add a new dynamic. 

Cuddy definately needs more screen time... and more scenes with a stripper pole.   :o

Well, I think House's confession to Amber while he was in the coma towards the end, that he was tired of being an ass and being in pain, plus the guilt over his involvement over Amber's death might lead House to becoming a little less mean than he has been recently.
