Due to a political conspiracy, an innocent man is sent to death row and his only hope is his brother, who makes it his mission to deliberately get himself sent to the same prison in order to break the both of them out, from the inside.
The series follows the life of anti-social, pain killer addict, witty and arrogant medical doctor Gregory House with only half a muscle in his right leg. He and his team of medical doctors try to cure complex and rare diseases from very ill ordinary people in the United States of America.Written by
Although the Diagnostic Medicine team deal with all types of diseases, House and his colleagues hold titles in various subspecialties: Dr. Foreman is a neurologist; Dr. Cameron is an immunologist/allergist; Dr. Chase is an intensivist; Dr. Taub is a plastic surgeon; Dr. Kutner specializes in sports medicine; Dr. Hadley (Thirteen) is an internist. As for Dr. House, he is double-certified in infectious disease and nephrology (as mentioned in episode #1.3). See more »
Though this is probably intentional, to create a more visually striking scene, the show quite literally never correctly depicts the proper treatment for a flatline. Flatlines are treated with medication and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), not a defibrillator. Defibrillators are used to correct irregular heart rhythm (fibrillation) -- not the complete absence of one. See more »
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 »
While most of my fellow Americans have never heard of him before I have been a fan of Hugh Laurie since I first saw him in Black Adder back in the 1980's (Thank goodness my local PBS station showed British shows back then).
When I first saw Hugh in House, M.D, I couldn't believe this is the same person who played silly Prince George and Lt George. Here he is playing a serious character without his British accent! I had to check the name in the credits to make sure it was him.
I hope the American public recognizes what a great actor he is.
If you like him in House, MD, watch him in the Black Adder series.
