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.
This is a beautiful series with a fantastic cast and really clever writing. I love the series dearly. This is medical drama, character driven soap and witty comedy packaged together in a really brilliant way.
However the authoring of these discs was done very, VERY badly. In between episodes is a short (and loud) ad about how piracy funds terrorism. I could stand if it was skippable, but it isn't, and I am the sort of person who likes having a series on DVD so I can watch a bunch of episodes at a time. After seeing about 4 of these in one night I was about ready to tear my hair out. You cannot skip from one chapter to the next because this just returns you to the chapter select screen, so if you pick the wrong episode by mistake you have to watch the terrorism/piracy ad again before you can try a different chapter.
I was really disappointed to see that this season was only in 4:3 apsect ratio, when the TV screening version is in widescreen. I read online that there has been a re-release of this series in widescreen but it was only released in the States in February of '09 so it may not be in NZ shops yet.
Extras on the discs are a real plus, especially the casting session with Hugh Laurie. Unfortunately it's still not enough to make me want to collect more of this series on DVD.
Hugh Laurie truly makes this series. He stars as House, a grumpy, abrupt doctor who can solve all the apparently 'unsolvable' medical illnesses that come into the hospital. I'm usually not much of one for medical dramas but definately enjoy this one, it stands out as different amongst the others. Enjoyable viewing for people of all ages.
House follows the medical cases of an incredibly brilliant doctor called (you guessed it!) House. He takes on all the cases that others can't solve. His methods are sometimes unorthodox, and he's not exactly the most conventional or ethical doctor in the world, but it is the results that tend to count. I love this series.
