He’s witty, he’s grumpy, he’s also one heck of a genius, it’s Hugh Laurie’s Dr. House. The show that Laurie has ruled on for 8 years, House, finally came to an end last night in its eighth season, with what could best be described as an epic finale.
8 years of near-impossible cases, employee manipulation, wisecracks, dark secrets, and Vicodin. When a show like this goes out, everybody’s watching.
Actress Olivia Wilde warned her followers that it was going to be a tough episode to watch:
House MD series finale tonight. It's intense. Buy Kleenex stock now.

So what did viewers think? Did it live up to the hype, or was a sorry disappointment to a show that reigned on prime-time for almost a decade?
Not really sure what to make of that series finale. Anyone else find it a bit… nothing-y? Will have to think it over. #House

All I can say regarding the House series finale, is bravo to the writers, a perfect balance of shock and closure for the viewers. Well done!

The House finale was so important, it even inspired rage due to potential spoilers:
Freaking obnoxiously loud guy talking on the phone behind me just spoiled the series finale of House for everyone in the room… Fuck him.
