Trivia

On season 1, episode 11, Cuddy confronts House about his Vicodin addiction saying that he was using half the amount when she first hired him. In the flashback episode where we learn what happened to House's leg, he was already working at Princeton Plainsboro before the infarction, and thus didn't use Vicodin at the time. See more »

Goofs

Though this is probably intentional, to create a more visually striking scene, the show quite literally never correctly depicts the proper treatment for a flatline. Flatlines are treated with medication and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), not a defibrillator. Defibrillators are used to correct irregular heart rhythm (fibrillation) -- not the complete absence of one. See more »

A show worth looking forward to
2 December 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I love this show. Fell in love with the pilot, which I got on DVD. I tried watching NBC's Medical Investigation, but it just felt and looked too corny. House is a definite improvement of Medical Investigation. It's smart and daring. I love the sarcasm and snide comments coming from Dr. House. Supporting actors are great. It's CSI-ish but quirky like Arrested Development. I hope it stays on the air. Cancel Medical Investigation but keep House. It's a good sign that FOX is pushing plenty of promos for the show, such as free DVD previews of the pilot. I look forward to watching the show every week. I'd like to see the show develop more of the characters and why Dr. House limps.
