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
In the season 2 episode "Informed Consent," House says, "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain." The patient, Ezra Powell, was played by Broadway legend Joel Grey, who debuted as the Wizard of Oz in the Tony award winning musical, Wicked. 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 »
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 :)
