We own every season of House, M.D. Hugh Laurie has a great sense of humor and does a fabulous job of playing a sloppy American doctor. I was blown away when I heard him talk out of character and he has that british accent. It is pretty amazing the depths and evil each character faces throughout all the seasons, none more than house. It is always a play on a team members problem and a patients problem. We also found it very interesting that he was always solving such rare cases. I guess we felt smarter for actually knowing what these rare diseases were.
After watching various episodes on TV and feeling out of the loop when we'd miss a show or two, my husband and I watched the entire series from start to finish. That is the way to go. We picked up on certain subtleties that we missed when watching it sporatically. House is brilliant but has absolutely no boundaries and no scruples. He generally doesn't care about his patients, but loves a good mystery and that is how he views his cases. Don't expect political correctness from this man. His callousness is appalling, but his logic is usually spot on. He says what a polite person might be thinking but would never give voice to. I'm ashamed to admit I laughed out loud at so many of his inappropriate comments and antics. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of all the blood and gore. Yes, I expected this from a program with a hospital setting, but I could never get used to it. There's plenty else to love about it though, if you don't mind averting your eyes during certain...
Like the series but the discs come in a funky case that made it hard to take out. Also, discs 3 and 4 are just weird, sometimes stalling the machine and having to turn the power off (from the power source instead of just the remote) to get to the main menu and I would get the main menu picture but no sound and no way to access the episodes. I also tried the discs in a PC with a blu-ray drive and the software ended up crashing, even though discs 1,2 & 5 played fine in both blu-ray player & the PC. I contacted Universal Home Video to get replacement discs but they haven't sent them. I read on some forum that this seems to be a common issue so if I had known about this, I probably would have bought the DVD's.
