"... Everyone Lies..."
on July 18, 2006
This is an excellent show. But is this a drama? Is this a comedy? I think this is the best of all worlds, a drama with humour that fits within the story coming naturally from the characters. No artificially punchlines with canned laughter inserted before short attention spans gte distracted.
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...
