Trivia

Goofs

Multiple times throughout the series, the doctors claim that a particular patient is unable to have an MRI because he/she has titanium screws, rods or plates in their bodies. Titanium is non-magnetic and patients with titanium implants can be safely examined using an MRI. Issues would only arise if the titanium were installed using fasteners with magnetic properties.

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 »

One of the best shows I've EVER seen
16 February 2005 | by kitty_kisses71See all my reviews

"House, M.D." is one of the most cleverly written shows I have ever watched. This is coming from a big "M.A.S.H." fan. Hugh Laurie does tend to carry the show, but the supporting actors help bring out the various layers of House's personality. The sarcasm is somewhat of a front for his pain (I'm guessing both physical and emotional). Not that I'm complaining! His sarcasm is one of the reasons I watch the show. Not an episode goes by that fails to make me laugh out loud. Not just a little giggle. One of those great big belly laughs! You can't help but think, "That was so awful! HE'S so awful! But I love him!"

Yes, the plot is predictable. As my boyfriend says, "Do you think that maybe this week someone will have a disease and they'll have a hard time figuring out what it is and then they'll finally figure it out and save them (or not)?" But I don't care. I love the show, I love Hugh Laurie, and I give a great big two thumbs up to both! Of course, being a good show it will be canceled after one season because the brain-dead morons who make shows like "Survivor" popular won't be able to wrap their little heads around something so clever. But I'll enjoy it while it lasts.
