Did You Know?

Goofs

Gregory House suffers with chronic pain from his right leg and uses the walking stick in his right hand. In real life such a person would use the stick in the opposite hand (ie the left hand in his case), to offload the weight on the affected side and form a stable tripod base when mobilizing. This is basic knowledge for anyone in the medical profession. But, in later episodes of the show, it is made evident that House is using the cane on the incorrect side on purpose. See more »

You can't always get what you want.
6 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Terrible with patients, Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) is excellent in determining what is wrong with them and then curing them.

He gets right to the heart of the matter, whether it is someone that is dying, or someone who is a hypochondriac, or a mother that thinks she knows more than her doctor does.

He doesn't mince words, and believes all people lie.

This episode introduces the characters we will grow to love and introduces the best medical show on television.

Directed by Brian Singer, who gave us X-Men and X2, this is one exciting show.
