Storyline

Pretty 29-year-old kindergarten teacher, Rebecca Adler, collapses one morning as she teaches her young students; Rebecca is babbling, incoherently and unintelligibly. After her physicians cannot diagnose her, Rebecca is sent to Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital (PPH) in New Jersey to consult with the foremost diagnostician in America, Dr. Gregory House. House's small team of young specialists perform all of the initial testing, including the taking of patient histories, performing environmental studies at her classroom and, by breaking and entering, at her home. House firmly believes that everybody lies; he jokes that Rebecca might be running a meth lab in her basement so he does not want her team to ask her for her house keys. No meth lab is found but there is pork in her refrigerator. Rebecca questions the fact she has met Dr. Eric Foreman, Dr. Allison Cameron and Dr. Robert Chase, (House's entire team) Dr. Lisa Cuddy, PPH hospital administrator, and Dr. James Wilson, PPH ...

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.
