Hugh Laurie's own father was a doctor, and he feels a twinge of guilt at "being paid more to become a fake version of my own father." 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 »

One of the best shows I've EVER seen
16 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

"House, M.D." is one of the most cleverly written shows I have ever watched. This is coming from a big "M.A.S.H." fan. Hugh Laurie does tend to carry the show, but the supporting actors help bring out the various layers of House's personality. The sarcasm is somewhat of a front for his pain (I'm guessing both physical and emotional). Not that I'm complaining! His sarcasm is one of the reasons I watch the show. Not an episode goes by that fails to make me laugh out loud. Not just a little giggle. One of those great big belly laughs! You can't help but think, "That was so awful! HE'S so awful! But I love him!"

Yes, the plot is predictable. As my boyfriend says, "Do you think that maybe this week someone will have a disease and they'll have a hard time figuring out what it is and then they'll finally figure it out and save them (or not)?" But I don't care. I love the show, I love Hugh Laurie, and I give a great big two thumbs up to both! Of course, being a good show it will be canceled after one season because the brain-dead morons who make shows like "Survivor" popular won't be able to wrap their little heads around something so clever. But I'll enjoy it while it lasts.
