Did You Know?

Trivia:
Dr. Gregory House was based on Sherlock Holmes... but Holmes, in turn, was based on a Doctor that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle knew while studying medicine, Dr. Joseph Bell, whose specialty was diagnosis. The reference is pushed further when, In episode 11 of the fifth season, Wilson presents House with Joseph Bell's Manual Of the Operations of Surgery as a Christmas gift. When House's staff begin to wonder why he would throw away the expensive gift, an amused Wilson begins making up a story about House having a closeted infatuation with a patient named Irene Adler whom he will always consider to be "the one who got away". Irene Adler is a romantic interest of Sherlock Holmes.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: House's office is on the fourth floor of the hospital which, according to the directory by the elevator is the top floor. In addition, the elevator call buttons on the fourth floor only have a 'down' button available. However, multiple shots within the elevator show 7 floors.See more »

The most brilliant medical show to date, 7 December 2004
Author: GaMEChldREBORN from New York

House is a brilliant show medically speaking but so much more than that at the same time. The show is a kind of "24" meets medicine extravaganza. The main character, Dr. Gregory House, is played beautifully by Hugh Laurie. Dr. House is a bitter but brilliant doctor who is crippled in one leg due to the inability of doctors to properly diagnose his problem in time. This makes him a decidedly bitter person when dealing with others yet he is one of the best doctors in his field of diagnostic medicine. He is being forced to serve his clinic hours that he had avoided for a number of years, and this is where the show takes place; in a walk in clinic. Each show is a mysterious new case that puts the patient's life on the line as time runs out. I am disheartened by all of the bad comments people are making about this show, but everyone I have seen this show with and everyone I have shown the show to love it and find it enormously entertaining, funny, and brilliant.
