Probably a good training film, but prefer it as Alternate time line... Where House fails Med School...
28 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The 1997 remake version which is apparently the only one still available for purchase (or viewing online) and is the one which definitely contains Hugh Laurie (not so certain about the original 1975 version, but I could be wrong.) It was designed as a rather serious training film for repair techs and sales reps to teach them about how NOT to treat clients and represent their company, in an engrossing manner. They couldn't have picked a better person for the part!

If you know, love and can't get enough of Hugh in House MD, consider this the freebie lost episode where, except for the native British accent (and with hardly any stretch of the imagination) you can envision Dr. House wakes up in an alternate universe where he failed Med School and wound up as a repair tech instead. Same hilariously snappy lines and expressions, same snarky attitude. Great laughs and great addition to any hardcore Laurie fan's collection!
