Product Description

Amazon.ca

The sixth season of House, M.D. starts off with a phenomenal two-part episode that sets the tone for the rest of the year. After years of abusing prescription drugs (and colleagues), Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) finds himself in a psychiatric ward as a patient who is not so patient with his own doctor. Smart and manipulative, House tries to finagle his way out of the hospital. But his selfish actions set off a chain reaction of events that manage to shake even his own confidence--temporarily, at least. This season spends a lot of time delving into House's psyche and the writers do a wonderful job depicting a brilliant, sad, and flawed man who knows more than most, but not enough to save every patient who comes to see him. That glimpse allows viewers to sympathize with his addictions but leaves them guessing as to whether the good doctor will be able to shake his dependency on drugs for good. However, viewers are never actually convinced when House quits his job. In many ways, he is his job.

House has always tackled fascinating cases and that continues this season, though the symptoms aren't overly dramatic by House standards. The team tries to save a man whose family history indicates that he will die of a heart attack before he turns 40. They try to help a brilliant scientist whose depression and addictions make him feel he's better suited for a simpler life as a courier. And Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard) may once again be grappling with cancer. It's a credit to this show that while it features such a strong lead character, the costars don't get shafted in the process. Wilson is one of the show's most charming characters and, by default, has become House's best friend. The two of them share a home and bicker like an old married couple. When a woman they both are attracted to mistakenly assumes that they're a complicated gay couple, we can't help but laugh. But Wilson's love life is made difficult by the return of his ex-wife and House doesn't want to see his friend hurt again. He can abuse Wilson, but he doesn't want her to do the same.

House's boss Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) has her own issues, juggling a harried personal life and the complications that come with trying to keep House in line. Chase (Jesse Spencer) falls under scrutiny this season after treating a controversial politician who he fears will murder innocent civilians. He finds himself struggling with the Hippocratic oath to treat all patients--even the ones he finds distasteful--to the best of his ability. And of the main characters on the show, one will be fired, another will profess their love for a colleague, and three of them will look for love via a speed-dating service. Yes, the story lines are all over the place, but then again, so is House. --Jae-Ha Kim

House is the Best tv show I know. I didn't start watching it until a couple of weeks ago. I was bored and I wanted to watch something new, so I decided to give House a chance. I had heard so many good things about this show. Well let me just say, once you start watching it, you can't stop, oh yeah, it's that good! It took me 2 weeks and I had watched all 6 seasons. The show is amazing, the storylines are captivating and the character of House is so endearing. No matter what he does, you can't help but root for him. The team, Wilson and Cuddy are great as well, they fit perfectly around him. Throughout the 6 seasons, you get to see House go through some changes. The sixth season is the darkest one yet. House has a breakdown and gets institutionalized into a mental hospital. It was a shock (I didn't see that one coming!) During the season, you get to see a more vulnerable side of him, and you get to know House on a much deeper level. It was really nice to see a more "human" side to him. To conclude, if you've never watched House, I highly recommend you do! and if you are wondering if you should buy season 6, the answer is YES! House is still House, funny, witty and mean!!

Ah yes season six, where most shows run out of ideas, and the flashback shows usually start. Gladly, this is not the case with House, the storyline moves to make changes in House in an attempt to make his now typical persona, deeper, or at the very least, different. Unlike many of the tv series I no longer watch, this has interested me, things change, but without throwing out the character. Good season, good shows and worth owning for sure.

Always a winner in our household. There is no one on television like House that I have every watched. You want to hate him but you just cannot help feeling sorry for him. He is one of kind. Watch this series, you won't regret it.

Really good show.
It is basically a office show that has an hospital setting.
Love how house insulting his co-workers, classic lines.

P.S.
From season 1 though 8. I think House finally admit that no matter which women he thinks he loves, Wilson is the only will he truly love and will sacrifice his life for.

Great show and price I wish this show never ended. Wish they would make a run-off to this series with House and Willson.
