Not House but still pretty good
24 January 2015 | by kent-grinnekullen102See all my reviews

OK, I loved House, and Hugh Laurie was great at delivering the lines. Lines That were better at being sarcastic and funny, also House had heart, maybe Backstrom will too when we come into the series. But Backstrom is still refreshing considering the competition, since after House there has been nothing like it. So even if its not House its better then the rest that is out there, and thats not to bad and its good enough for me. I agree that the characters surrounding are not great and actually agree with some other writers, but who are we kidding, the supporting cast for House weren't that great either compared to House himself. I think for Backstrom to we really great he needs someone to be as sarcastic as he is but at him to throw him off his game a bit.
