Trivia

Dr. Gregory House was based on Sherlock Holmes... but Holmes, in turn, was based on a Doctor that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle knew while studying medicine, Dr. Joseph Bell, whose specialty was diagnosis. The reference is pushed further when, In episode 11 of the fifth season, Wilson presents House with Joseph Bell's Manual Of the Operations of Surgery as a Christmas gift. When House's staff begin to wonder why he would throw away the expensive gift, an amused Wilson begins making up a story about House having a closeted infatuation with a patient named Irene Adler whom he will always consider to be "the one who got away". Irene Adler is a prominent character in one Sherlock Holmes story who has been wrongly characterised as Sherlock Holmes' love interest in several adaptations. Here the one who got away is a parallel to the fact that she was the one woman who defeated Sherlock Holmes, making Sherlock Holmes respect her. But he was never in love with her. The false story of Wilson about Irene Adler pays tribute to both of these facts. See more »

Goofs

With, very, very few exceptions, characters in the series don't wear eye protection when performing surgery. It is standard practice throughout hospitals in the United States to do so. However, this was a deliberate decision made by the director for theatrical reasons. See more »

Alternate Versions

The song used for the intro sequence is Massive Attack's "Teardrop". However, in many European countries an original piece of music by Scott Donaldson and Richard Nolan was used due to rights issues. From the second season onwards a new intro composed by Jason Derlatka and John Ehrlich was used. See more »

User Reviews

Interesting bordering on excellent
7 December 2004 | by bch035See all my reviews

Great show, despite what others say, especially if a show like ER doesn't appeal to you. House is a unique character to be appreciated among the saps of TV nowadays.

I must say something to Hugh Laurie. People complain about his accent. He's English playing an American. I lived in England for a year on exchange. I'm an American. Though I'm no expert on accents, I have to say I didn't notice that Hugh Laurie had any sort of English accent. A slight accent can show if you're really looking for it, but, other than that, he's version of an American accent is great.

House is a great show, but it's not for the weak of heart or weak of stomach. It's not like ER at all. House is like the Sherlock Holmes of medicine. It's a drama without the screaming and tears.

Sorry if this is a horrible comment, but it's my first review on IMDb of a show :)
