Another of my favorites, I love how house is so sarcastic and mean to everyone, while solving still the case and turning out to be the hero in the end.

I am the darkness in your life, I am the light
I am the end of your tunnel, I am the beginning of your future
I am the end, your end. I am the path to your salvation.

Your bane, or your hope. You decide.

The character of Gregory House is wonderfully written and portrayed. Hugh Laurie is awesome.

I still need to get my hands on the Season 2 DVD boxset, and I'm waiting eagerly for Season 3 to air in Australia.

House is the -only- show I never miss an episode of. I love it.

Even though it's not brilliant, it just makes me laugh out loud occassionally and is always interesting to watch 'till the very end. The acting is great, the characters are all believable and after a few episodes you feel like you know the people.

Great, great show.

5 stars, 10/10 or whatever the max score is.

another great show although repetitive, its interesting and witty and of course house's sarcasm is great.

Some of the episodes take medical shortcuts, and the time frame of tests/diagnostics are far from realistic.

Though over all it's a great series, which I follow as best I can

I am 'great', and yet... I stumble.

Laurie makes best role work in his life. He has been comedian but now he shows that he is also versatile actor. I love this show. I recomend it to anyone who wants to see bit different kind hospital series.

I managed to borrow a good friend's House Season 1, and I started watching it. Can't say that I liked the show very much, as the first two episodes were relatively quite similiar, only with different complications each time in the plot. Despite that, Hugh Laurie is a wonderful guy, his Golden Globe for Best Performance By An Actor In a Television Series Ė Drama was well deserved, and his acceptance speech was hilarious - by far and away the funniest speech of the night.

Dolce And Gabbana acceptance speeches for sale (for anyone who watched the Golden Globes).

i absolutely love the series. its great how Laurie managed to lose his British accent, and flames everyone to the ground. Ive got both season 1 and 2 and the first part of 3 and i never miss an episode on tv.

I don't like how recently house has more of a storyline, I think that i the beginning of the downfall of every series. I liked it better when each week they have an issue or whatever to solve. Storylines suck. I know there is always a subtle one, but not like when the whole episode is consumed with storyline...

last weeks didn't have a story line... house had to keep wilson's dog cuz wilson had to stay sterile and couldn't be contaminated with animal dander... and house got a new cane "Bitchin'"

best line: "your cane has flames?"
"Ya it makes it look like im going fast."

they're still at season 2 here. the last episode that was aired was euphoria 2. so now Foreman cant control his limbs like he should be.
i liked it more when it was just 1 show, 1 cure thing.

What does everyone think about "Alone", the first episode of the fourth season?

In my opinion it is among the best episodes so far. The humour was awesome (abducted guitar, Cuddy's memo's, janitor-doctor etc.).

I didn't like the first few episodes at first because House was the only significant character in the series and I'm not fond of that, but I realized that's the whole point. What's the use of having two Holmes-like characters in a story? If one is Holmes, naturally others have to be Watsons. I like the show because of the House character. Honestly, I don't pay much mind to the others or their stories.

Still a 5/5 in my book.

No-one else watched the first new House episode yet? It's so awesome. Seriously. It really raises expectations for the fourth season.

You can find it online on TV Links http://www.tv-links.co.uk/ and good torrents are available.

And another great House episode this week! You guys are really missing out if you're not watching it online. This one was perhaps a bit less humorous, but the story was great: House hired dozens of doctors trying to find a new team.

Well i downloaded the first episode of series 4. Pretty good but not up to its usual standards...

House being alone annoyed me throughout the episode, however the whole
guitar kidnapping
was great

Its just not the usual house without some lackeys who he can call idiots and they make or break the case
