Go deeper into the medical mysteries of House, TVs most compelling new drama, as all 22 Season One episodes and exclusive bonus features come to DVD! Hugh Laurie stars as the brilliant, but sarcastic Dr. Gregory House, a maverick physician who is devoid of bedside manner. While his behavior can border on antisocial, Dr. House thrives on the challenge of solving the medical puzzles that other doctors give up on. Together with his hand-picked team of young medical experts, hell do whatever it takes in the race against the clock to solve the case. Check out each gripping episode featuring some of TVs hottest guest stars, including Carmen Electra, Chi McBride, Scott Foley and Sela Ward. Its the intriguing new series TV Guides Matt Roush hails as the uncommon cure for the common medical drama.
He pops pills, watches soaps, and always, always says what's on his mind. He's Dr. Gregory House (Emmy nominee Hugh Laurie, Blackadder). Producers David Shore, Bryan Singer, Katie Jacobs, and Paul Attanasio haven't rewritten the hospital drama--at heart, it's a cross between St. Elsewhere, ER, and C.S.I.--but they've infused a moribund genre with new life and created one of TV's most compelling characters. More than any previous medical procedural, it resembles Attanasios underrated Gideon's Crossing, but House is lighter on its feet. As fascinating as he is, the show wouldn't work as well if it were all House all the time (that would be like Sherlock Holmes without Watson or Moriarty). Fortunately, he's joined by an intriguing cast of characters, portrayed by a combination of experienced vets (Omar Epps, Lisa Edelstein, Tony winner Robert Sean Leonard) and new faces (Jennifer Morrison, Jesse Spencer). Aside from the complicated cases they tackle each week, the sparks really fly when House's brilliant, if naïve charges are put to the test--and as the head of a teaching hospital, it's his job to test them (although his tough love approach is constantly landing him in hot water with Edelstein's administrator). From the first episode, House attracted a talented array of guests, including Robin Tunney ("Pilot"), Joe Morton ("Role Model"), and Patrick Bauchau ("Cursed") as Spencers father. In addition, Chi McBride and Sela Ward appear frequently (with Ward returning for the second season). Viewers who first watched these 22 episodes on Fox will be gratified to note that the music has survived the transition to disc, such as the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want," as featured in both the pilot and season finale ("Honeymoon"). The only apparent omission is the credit theme (Massive Attack's "Teardrop") from the pilot. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

It's about the characters. They took the time to develope the characters, they have backstories, they are individuals, they react differently and may even have thier own agendas. Including House's boss who admits she sets aside money just to pay the lawyers the hospital needs after House's antics (because 'he's that good of a doctor'). And in the end each of those antics is House trying to save his patient, despite hospital rules, despite the opinions of other doctors, and often despite the patients themselves ('everybody lies').
Be thankful you have to change the dvd. It will become a medical addiction hitting the "Playall" button, and then being upset when you've watched all the episodes, getting the shakes while changing the dvd... you'd better get yourself checked out by Dr House... only he'll probably dodge you in the clinic...
My favorite episode is "Three Stories", during which House reluctantly lectures a seminar in Diagnostics. In the process of relating three different medical cases, we learn a little about what made House the arrogant, mouthy, addictive, brilliant jerk that he is.
I can't wait to get Season 2!
Also, Hugh Laurie is a delight to watch. The fact that this man is the same actor who portrayed the lovable dolt Bertie Wooster so admirably is testemant to his great talent. The two characters are poles apart but he nails them both. I find it interesting that American television needs to pluck an English actor to play a stock character (the all-knowing doctor) Does this mean that they have finally realized that their star factories do not actors make?
I bought this DVD set...two days later I had finished the final episode. Bring on season 2......and hurry.
