9:30pm – Saturday, July 7 on TV 3
After eight seasons and 177 episodes, this week sees House come to an emotional end with the episode titled, “Everybody Dies”, screening on Saturday, July 7 th at 9:30pm on 3. This week’s unmissable series conclusion sees House (Hugh Laurie) treating an ailing drug addict, which leads the moody medic to sift through his life, speculate on his future and explore his personal demons.
But how does one of the edgiest, most antagonistic characters in series television history say goodbye? According to Laurie – in pretty much the same fashion he said hello.
“It would almost be one of House’s many mantras that people don’t change, generally speaking,” Laurie explains. “It’s certainly true in television drama. They can’t change, actually. If they do, you wind up with a different show from the one you started with, and that gets economically and logistically difficult.”
“I’ve always felt that one of the distinctions between film and television is that in film, by and large, the main characters change, and the world doesn’t,” Laurie continues.
“In television, the main characters stay the same, and the world changes, and I think it’s important that House remains uncompromised.
“There is a defiance about him that’s a kind of strength, and even though it might be belligerent at times, I find it inspiring. He will not suddenly give into the sentimental, even at the end of the show. I find that uplifting, in a twisted and dark way.” Make sure not to miss this when House concludes its eight year run on Saturday, July 7 th at 9:30pm on 3.
