The End Of House M.D.

For my fellow unworthy foreigners not lucky enough to be born in/have crawled through the underdeveloped waste of our respective homelands into the United States of America, I have a piece of bad news.

After 8 seasons, the TV series House M.D. aired its final episode last night.

"As if there aren't already few enough role models with disabilities on TV!"
(For added atmosphere, click here and press the big blue button in the middle of the page. You won't regret it.)

House M.D. has literally lasted me through medical school. I remember watching it in my first few depressed months at Cambridge, after my first girlfriend dumped me to get together with my best friend behind my back (yes, that happened. And you wonder why I'm screwed up in my head! --Editor) and I googled 'angry doctor' to find an angsty profile picture (for Friendster. Yeah, this was, uh, before Facebook existed. DON'T MAKE ANY AGE JOKES --Ed.) and I discovered House. And the rest, as they say, is history (as were my exam grades that term).

I haven't watched the last episode yet, but I will soon. Until then, I'm going to pretend it hasn't ended.

And for those of you who HAVE watched the last episode and are on the floor crying whilst sucking your thumbs in the foetal position, leave some space for me, will ya?

Do justice to the memory of House M.D. and like my Facebook page. Or follow me on Twitter. It's what Dr House would have wanted.

'leave some space for me, will ya?', sure, although I have no idea how that could help (and whom).

Good that I have people who are able to talk some sense into my head, especially lately. What would I do without true friends. Dear life, I love you for having true friends.

First insight into the making of the Angry medic :)

Spoilsport Anonymous: I honestly don't know. This place is so full of trolls, why don't you have a Troll Olympics and find out.

(Of course I'm making the mistake of thinking all the trolls are different people again, aren't I...)

The Angry Medic said...

Schizophre-- uh Multiple Personality Disorder Anonymous: Yep. You keep talking to those voices in your head, oh yeah. Don't listen to that silly doctor! Stay away from that risperidone crap.

The Angry Medic said...

Dr Erhumu: Haha, how kind of you again. Hey, everybody's got a backstory - I'm sure you have something that makes YOU write tirelessly every day too ;)

Maybe you could be a bit nicer and for example refrain from calling every anonymos author a troll. We can understand emotions are high, but I don't know, maybe try a little tenderness instead?

I love doctor House! Its especially great that his team does all the stuff RN's normally do.

You could refrain from doing things he does. Would be easier for you to distinguish yourself from him, self.

Now he refrains from doing things that you do, making You look like rabid dogmatic freak. Nnnno, he doesn't have to do anything, you manage perfectly well.

Peacemaker Anonymous: I don't. I'm quite nice when it comes to anonymous authors. Try reading back a little. I just have an allergy to dickwads.

For all I know, you're the same person who wrote that previous comment.

The Angry Medic said...

RN Anonymous: I KNOW RIGHT. We keep asking ourselves how come they do absolutely everything - whenever there's a nurse in the patient's room you know she's just there to deliver a line, take House's crap or get quickly shoved out of the way when the patient goes into V-Fib.

Needs A Typing Class ASAP Anonymous: But why would I refrain? It's so much fun. I'll take the rest of your barely cohesive rant as a compliment.
