Fox recently announced that after eight long seasons, House will be coming to an end this May. We're thrilled, though probably not as thrilled as Hugh Laurie, but very happy none the less. While it is far too late for the show to go out on a high note, it can at least go out in an interesting, or at least totally ridiculous and entertaining, way. Here are our suggestions, largely inspired from other, better programs.
24 ended its gloriously ridiculous, wildly entertaining, f*cking badass run with a two-hour series finale last night, and though it had some pitfalls, it's hard to deny that it was a pretty great finale. It felt more like a great season finale, sure, but to their credit they're trying to get a movie made, here. If the movie happens, this will go down as an excellent series finale, and one that's justified. If it doesn't, well... let's not think about that. Let's just review the best and worst elements of the finale as it stood last night.
Fans of dinosaurs, Scottish accents and pixyish female members of S Club 7 walking around in their underwear have likely already discovered Primeval on BBC America. The Brit import features oversized bugs and reptiles from not only the past, but the future, as well -- all transported here via mysterious time portals to menace the general populace of England. (Yes, just England. If Torchwood can take place entirely in Cardiff, this show can limit itself to one island.) If you haven't been watching it, then you may not be aware that the first U.S. season (technically, the second British series, but since British series are only six or seven episodes long, BBC America combined them) ends Saturday night at 9:00, and it should be pretty awesome. After all, Episode 6 (the first British series' finale) featured the show's first futuristic predator, and ended with the main character changing history and turning his sensible love interest into a tarted-up tramp... which may or may not have been on purpose, now that we think about it. Check out a teaser clip of the finale after the jump.
