Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Bill Pearis
Gregory House Hugh Laurie is not your average TV doctor. Though he's unquestionably brilliant, his bedside manner lies somewhere between indifference and disdain. He would prefer not to talk to his patients at all, actually, because while "First, do no harm" are words that most doctors live by, House believes in another edict: "All patients lie." They lie about how bad they actually feel, they lie about where they were when they first ...

Barnes & Noble - Bill Pearis
Gregory House Hugh Laurie is not your average TV doctor. Though he's unquestionably brilliant, his bedside manner lies somewhere between indifference and disdain. He would prefer not to talk to his patients at all, actually, because while "First, do no harm" are words that most doctors live by, House believes in another edict: "All patients lie." They lie about how bad they actually feel, they lie about where they were when they first felt sick, they lie about their own bad habits. House would rather the symptoms to speak for themselves. His gruff demeanor stems, in part, from the constant pain he endures from a misdiagnosed embolism in his leg that has left him with a limp and an addiction to painkillers. Working at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital, where he has cushy tenure, House only takes on cases that interest him -- and even then he does so begrudgingly. Helping him is his team of talented young specialists: Dr. Eric Foreman Omar Epps, a neurologist with a troubled past; Dr. Robert Chase Jesse Spencer, an Australian who seems to constantly be ducking his privileged upbringing; and immunologist Dr. Allison Cameron Jennifer Morrison who sparks with the emotionally distant House. Robert Sean Leonard plays oncologist James Wilson, seemingly House's only friend, and Lisa Edelstein is department head Dr. Cuddy, whose verbal sparring with House is one of the show's consistent highlights. As fascinating as each week's baffling case is, this FOX show's appeal rests entirely on Laurie's mesmerizing lead performance. The biting humor and humanity he brings to this hard-to-like character made this a late-blooming hit for FOX in 2005 and garnered Laurie a well-deserved Emmy nomination -- and they make this set of House's debut season as mandatory as doctor's orders.

    If I had three thumbs, I would raise them all!

    This series made me want to become a doctor! Humorous, addicting, critical, dramatic, emotional. What can I say? Such a great show!

    Love it!!

    I haven't been addicted to a TV series like this since "Friends"!!! I love the sarcastic/cynical sense of humor. The show is very well written and the characters/actors play so well off of each other. Highly recommended.

    The Doctor is In

    If you like to hassle out, argue, think, disagree, and have a more fun than watching monster truck rallies than get House Season 1 and invite Wilson over and mooch off his popcorn while watching Season !. Later on in your experience of watching further seasons of House you will know the secret of the zen koan "Bring me the thong of Dr. Cuddy!" Enjoy.

    The History of House

    My husband and I got on the House train during the second season. We've seen most of the episodes, but not in order. It's so nice to start from the beginning and work our way through, learning how all of the relationships formed. We love the show and make a point of watching an episode every chance we get. This was one of the best DVD buys I've ever made!
