Trivia

For the first season, FOX insisted that House must have some kind of enemy or someone telling him he couldn't behave like that. Series Creator David Shore was hesitant about the idea, but ended up creating Edward Vogler (Chi McBride), but stating from the beginning that he was only going to be in five episodes, and then he would leave the show.

Goofs

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 »

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

Finally, a network show I like. .
29 December 2004 | by enddustSee all my reviews

So I like medicine and mysteries and watched CSI the first couple of times but got bored quickly with the repetitive format and self-important characters. Nowadays there's usually not that much in the way of mystery shows on (US) TV anymore--cop shows, sure, but mysteries? And while ER is certainly a quality show, I never really cared that much for it either--too much like a daytime soap but with blood. "House," however, seems a nice combo of medicine, mystery, and character. Hugh Laurie's Dr. House is someone you feel guilty loving because he's so arrogant and callous, but he keeps you entertained because you can't wait to hear what he'll say next. House loves to tell the truth as he sees it, cutting through the nice happy lies that your average urban US adult tells and believes, never mind the hurt feelings he might leave lying bleeding by the roadside. But of course, his character *may* hide a heart of gold, so in the end he's trying to do the right thing. Sure, it's a formula, and House is even a stock character maybe, but it works.

If the creators/writers are smart, they'll allow a little character development, especially amongst the excellent supporting cast, but not ruin it by changing House or allowing him a romance with either of his female costars. Keep that sexual tension going!

For fun, catch Hugh Laurie--who is British by the way--sometime on one of the seasons of Black Adder (usually rebroadcast on PBS, but also available at better video rental shops). He plays a complete idiot and is as convincing in that role as he is as the brilliant and misanthropic Dr. House. . .
