With out a doubt -

There is no canny explanation behind the fact that House fans build relationships with the characters within the series. We find ourselves outdone by the sheer drama and strong personal impacts that each episode, forth coming and past lasting, makes on us... This is simply an episode that generates a pillar, a corner stone, of what House M.D. is about.

For those who have followed every season, every episode, with every main character - you will feel the emotions that a true die-hard fan would feel. In that sense alone, you've been entitled to experience something that no others have.

For those who have never seen, and this is your first... Brace your selves for the experience of watching something mouth watering, worth-while, that doesn't make you regret wasting your life on...

Through all seasons of House M.D., with such strong and developed characters, actors, and episodes... This is truly a must see for any.
