I was forced into watching House the first time I saw it, in 2010. My sister and I later began watching every season from the beginning, rekindling the relationship we'd lost in high school. I initially liked the show because it resembled Mystery Diagnosis. I appreciated seeing complex cases that no one could solve, theories that led to dead ends, unorthodox and rare medical tests, and the ways they forced the doctors that treated them to question their very ethics and world views. I love the small details we gleaned from the characters in their differences in opinions.
I relate to Wilson the most because I know what it’s like to repress my emotions, and feel guilty for feeling them as if I don’t deserve them, my need to be needed serves as confirmation that other won’t leave, I’m content in my box of repression, and terrified to admit I enjoy coming out. I relate to House because of his cynical outlook on people and life, his obsessive nature, and the enjoyment he takes in analyzing others. I appreciate Cuddy's confidence and grace; Foreman's determination and willingness to admit when he's wrong; Chase's loyalty to House and gradual self-discovery throughout the seasons; Cameron's perspective that differed from that of her co-workers and feisty attitude she developed in
later seasons; Kutner's fascination with the medicine itself and his childlike viewpoints; Thirteen in general; Taub's sarcasm and tell-it-like-it-is attitude, and his often understated care and loyalty to those important in his life; Adams' disregard for what others think of her which propels her to expressing and sticking by her morals; and Park in general.
I love they relationship between House and Wilson. They get from each other what they have sought for years; unconditional love and acceptance.
House has taught me: good people do bad things, people don't change, everybody lies, and to question conventional happiness. House will never end for me because I will forever carry the universe and characters that changed forever my outlook on life into something far less naive and idealistic. I hate that things will end in Season 8 with the medicine to character drama ration restored, new character information on Chase’s time spent in seminary school and how Wilson deals with patients, awesome patients, and character growth in House admitting he likes Wilson and his apology to Chase.
