Did You Know?


After receiving his honorary doctorate in fine arts, TV satirist Stephen Colbert placed several pictures of other famous TV doctors who inspired him on the mantle-piece of his show's set. One of these is of Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory House. The others are Bill Cosby as Dr. Cliff Huxtable and Noah Drake from General Hospital. As a response, the creators of House placed a picture of Colbert on the desk of Gregory House in the show's 5th season, that can be seen from time to time. Due to both Laurie's show winning an Emmy over Colbert's, and because Laurie received an OBE while Colbert did not, Colbert named House to his enemies list. See more »


With, very, very few exceptions, characters in the series don't wear eye protection when performing surgery. It is standard practice throughout hospitals in the United States to do so. However, this was a deliberate decision made by the director for theatrical reasons. See more »

Great Show
15 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hugh Laurie as Dr. House is my new hero. This is a terrific show with some absolutely great writing. A little over the layman's head as far as medical jargon, but the characters, plot and script more than make up for any questions about a diagnosis. The show is really carried by House, but the team of doctors who work with him add dimension and depth to his character.

Any negative comments I've read about the show dealt with complaints about how the television doctors don't diagnose the way the viewing medical professionals do. May I point out to these people, this is a television show. Please get a grip on reality and watch it for it's pure entertainment value.

I hope this show has a good following and I'm already hoping for, and looking forward to, more seasons.
