Great Medical Show
9 September 2006 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

If you like House, you will like this show. And as is so often he case, the real version makes the non-real aspects of the other appear completely superfluous. These guys cover 3 cases in an hour, w/no stupid love interest sidelights. The only thing I don't like about this show is that it rips off Errol Morris so ruthlessly they should be paying him a royalty.

One of the other points to make here is that the real show has a diametrically opposite message from the fiction one. In House, the formula is the patient always lies and the genius doctor pieces together the truth by finding the lies. In this show, reality is much uglier: the doctors are INSANELY incompetent, and invariably, in the face of incompetence, the patients and/or their parents, put up with an unbelievable amount of grief. Countless cases result in people enduring torturous chronic illnesses for years, and in some cases, having their lives ruined because some jackass doctor couldn't be bothered to fill in the whole picture.

House is the happy, status quo version of this world, making you feel better because the genius figures out how to undope the problem. This is much more troubling, but ultimately, also much more rewarding.
