Season 1 Episode 7 "Fidelity" Has three men who played vampires somewhere in their career. Robert Sean Leonard (My Best Friend is a Vampire), Omar Epps (Dracula 2000), Dominic Purcell (Blade Trinity), although I'm sure they may want everyone to forget those parts. See more »
In some episodes, doctors are seen restraining a patient during a seizure. Patients having a seizure should never be restrained, as doing so can cause more harm. See more »
Hugh Laurie as Dr. House is my new hero. This is a terrific show with some absolutely great writing. A little over the layman's head as far as medical jargon, but the characters, plot and script more than make up for any questions about a diagnosis. The show is really carried by House, but the team of doctors who work with him add dimension and depth to his character.
Any negative comments I've read about the show dealt with complaints about how the television doctors don't diagnose the way the viewing medical professionals do. May I point out to these people, this is a television show. Please get a grip on reality and watch it for it's pure entertainment value.
I hope this show has a good following and I'm already hoping for, and looking forward to, more seasons.
