A pretty good season!,
This review is from: House Season 7 [DVD] (DVD)
I am a big house fan, but I think the show is heading in the wrong direction. The earlier seasons were clever, intelligent and kept you guessing. This season you could work things out before they happened. I felt the love arc was poorly handled and I don't believe Cuddy would have acted that way. It wasn't like she didn't know what she was getting into. I felt the final episode was a bit silly. House is reckless, but he isn't stupid. Everything he does is a calculated gamble and I don't know if its because the show has new writers or what has changed, but I was left wanting more. Still it is a great show. I think the high standards of the earlier series is what I am after. I will happily watch season eight, but I think they could have done so much more with season seven. I think the character development of house's team was really good. Some of the cases were brilliant. There were one or two rather weird and wonderful episodes. Overall it was a pretty good season!

Yes I think that's about right. The thing about house is that it's based mostly around one character, which i think the writers find hard to get material from because he's already been exhausted - so to prevent the show from turning incredibly boring and repetitive House begins to compromise his own character. I mean it's still good, but not nearly as good as the old ones.

Isn't it always the way. If a series lasts beyond the first or second, things start to go downhill. Having said this, I've enjoyed all up to now and will continue to watch. On a side note, if one were to be cast away on a desert isle. Would you want House or Wilson? I'd go for the latter; oh sure House would know all that was going on and maybe why. But if I cut my finger or ate something bad, Wilson could treat and be good company. Whereas House could treat but when I got better, I'd just have to kill the fellow. Sanity or company, I know which I'd prefer.

The next season is meant to be the last, great review, I agree with what you've said, I think they were just a motorbike away from jumping the shark... Hopefully they'll go back to how it was originally for the "last" season, I say it like that as Hugh has said it's his last but if they wanted to continue it then they could, how they'd do that I don't know, but if it is the final one I hope it's way better than this.

I agree, they just can't keep milking out a format like this without loosing the newness and sharpness it had in the beginning. But for a show with 24 episodes in each series, and 7 series already, I think it's still doing incredibly well. I mean, look at a show like Dexter, which started out incredibly good, yet lost it's touch after only 5 series. The fact that series 7 of House is still, by all means, a good -and sometimes even great- watch, is remarkable in itself, compared to other long-running tv series. I'll be very curious to see what they make of series 8.
