Performance

Having spent the last 20+ years thinking of Hugh Laurie as the comedian/musician half of the "Fry and Laurie" team, I was hard pressed to consider him in a serious, non-musician role. Boy was I wrong! He shines in this role. A must-have for any true drama fan! (Oh and if you haven't seen the comedian/musician side of him, get your hands on a copy of the sketch comedy show "A Bit of Fry and Laurie".)

I never thought a medical show would be sooo entertaining or funny ! I love this show. Dr. House is awesome ! I would hate to have him as my doctor...but watching him actually brings me PLEASURE. He makes me happy. It's a great show...having the entire season in a set like this is great (NO COMMERCIALS) but I was a little let down by the "extras." Not enough extra material.

Editors Note
Note Part E.R. and part C.S.I., HOUSE is a medical mystery television show that's appealing due to its creative camerawork, interesting characters, and twisting plotlines. Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) is a brilliant medical professional, but often alienates his patients and co-workers because of his abrasive manner and bitterness. In each episode House is faced with a person exhibiting a number of unusual symptoms, and along with his team of dedicated doctors and nurses, must discover what strange illness is afflicting the patient...before it's too late! The show moves at a rapid pace, spurred by its turning and suspenseful plotlines and the lively interaction between the characters, played by a strong supporting cast that includes Robert Sean Leonard, Omar Epps, and Sela Ward. HOUSE: SEASON ONE collects all 22 episodes of the program's first year.

ReviewSource Reel.com
Review House is a true word-of-mouth phenomenon. For most of its first season, it resided near the bottom of the Neilsen charts, propelled only by a small but vocal group of Anglophiles eager to watch Hugh Laurie on a weekly basis. When those people began telling their friends about the series, the numbers picked up...The series was created by a physician, David Shore, and most episodes are written by doctors; it aims for the same medical accuracy as CSI's forensic accuracy. Shore's initial goal was to develop something like a police drama, but in a hospital setting, and along with executive producer Bryan Singer (X-Men), he's pretty much achieved that...If you don't like the show immediately, you're not alone. But watch at least four episodes before you give up, because House is an acquired taste. And once you've got the taste, you'll eat it up.
