House M.D. (2004)
One of the most entertaining TV shows ever created...
My summary statement displays just how highly I rate House, and with good reason. This is what you get when you take the written complexity of Sherlock Holmes' deductabilities, use that basis to solve 21st century medical mysteries in a 21st century politically and morally correct world, using today's general society as a backboard. Throw in a maverick diagnostician, more Sherlock Holmes tit-bits, and the core of this show is complete.
The acting of all the roles are superb, each individual brings a unique X-factor into each episode, everyone has their quirks, just as they should in real life. None of them are truly stereotypical, a brilliant foreground guise overlapping the show's general moralities. The majority of the credit in the acting goes to the lead, Hugh Laurie, but I have to reserve my applause to his characters only friend, Dr Robert Wilson, played impeccably by Robert Sean Leonard. First cast on the show, and it shows, the scenes he appears in automatically breathe in an air of what is to come, a dramatic moment, a comedic line, or a battle of morals with Dr House, every scene he is in is 100% pure entertainment, a fine actor who should be offered large roles in Hollywoods more serious movies.
The show is so accessible to all audiences, it's writing is bordering genius. You can watch it as a passing medical mystery without becoming overly involved in the characters and the background stories, and you can, like myself and millions of others, immerse yourself into a whole world of personality clashes, moral crashing and social bashing between the on-screen ensemble.
The closest you will come to a perfect entertainment production.
