Up to season 5 House was known as focusing a lot on the comical witticisms of House as he insulted his colleagues and his boss. This particular season takes a more serious turn, and although there does exist the comedy that it's famous for, there is a more serious aura around the entire season and its characters as all is not well in the land of Dr. Gregory House. For a medical drama, House is pretty special as it retains a very formulaic style of storytelling and wholly stays away from soap opera dramatics; instead replacing them with casual love stories, complex medical cases and an even more complex main star.

Just when we think we know House, the show takes another massive turn and shows us a completely different side to him that we never thought existed. Season 5 seeks on exposing a new emotional side to House. At the end of season 4 we saw the end to Wilsons girlfriend, Amber and what we are lead to believe to be the friendship of House and Wilson. Season 5 opens with our worst fears, Wilson quits and tells House that they can no longer be friends and in order for Wilson to be truly happy, he must have House out of his life.

In comes a private investigator hired by House to spy on Wilson in his new life and also his team. The split doesn't last for long and House & Wilson end up back to their old tricks of childish friendship antics. Chase & Cameron gain a more prominent role in this season as their relationship is explored in more detail as Cameron struggles with the possibility of a permanent relationship as she still can't let go of the memories of her husband who died a few years prior to their relationship.

As with Season 3, the release for this season will be in 2 parts, 4.0 and probably 4.5, with 9 episodes on this release with 11 on the next, why they've started releasing them this way is beyond me, the only reason that I can think of is due to the extra money they'll get for doing it this way.

Personally I've a mind to buy seasons 1 and 2 and be done with it, as and when or if they ever get around to releasing a complete season 3 and complete season 4 then I'll pick those up then, buying them as half seasons is a waste of packaging, time, money and the environment, if you want to waste all of these then buy this boxset.

This is a fantastic tv series, with 39 'mini-movies' in crystal clear b&w. As with most tv series some of the episodes are absolute classics and some are mearly above average but when Amazon are charging (at the time of writing this review) 8.97 for the set you'd be mad to pass this up!

Was looking for this WONDERFUL series on DVD for a while & now it's here! FORGET that these episodes are 50+ YEARS OLD and revel in TV of the highest order that will appeal to buyers of other intelligent sci-fi shows like the TWILIGHT ZONE (60s & 1985 series) and JOHNNY STACCATO (not on DVD officially anywhere, why not??). If you think pre 1965 B&W shows are flat & boring you're mistaken!

(Updated Apr 08) This first series has some great episodes, all introduced by cheeky comments by Mr H himself. Many future name guest stars inc John Cassavettes (Johnny Staccato) and Charles Bronson. Some of the episodes later in the set deviate from the mystery & suspense style & are a little disappointing, a few stories do not tie up very well leaving you stranded. Also 2 actors appear as different characters in different episodes very close to their first appearance, making credibility a little stretched if you watch one a day as I did! Some scenarios may initially look a bit dull to the modern viewer, but with any quality old show, it doesn't take long to see it for the quality it is!

Picture quality is fine for the age. The sound can be a bit poor due to the fact nowadays everything must be silent background with no hiss. This heavy-handed restoration mars mainly the intros though a few shows have poor distorted sound, but the best there is left. Most viewers with small TV speakers wouldn't notice, those of us with 15" speakers hear everything!

Will be buying all the series as they are released one per year. It'll take a long time: there are 7 series of the shorter format, then 3 seasons of the longer "Alfred Hitchcock Hour".

Format: DVD
In most sci-fi shows, time travel is usually just a one-off deal that never has any lasting repercussions. But it forms the centerpiece of "Eureka Season 4.0," in which a single jaunt back in time causes sweeping changes for the citizens of Eureka -- it sounds like a cheap way of shaking things up, but the focus on what time travel has changed is pretty interesting.

Carter (Colin Ferguson) is out jogging on Founder's Day when he suddenly goes back in time to the year 1947, along with Allison (Salli Richardson-Whitfield), Jo (Erica Cerra), Henry (Joe Morton) and Fargo (Neil Grayston). With the assistance of scientist Trevor Grant (James Callis), and are able to get back to present-day Eureka.

But... some things have changed. Jo is the security chief of Global Dynamics and never dated Zane, Kevin is not autistic, Andy the robot is Carter's new deputy, Henry is married to a woman he doesn't know, and Fargo is now the director of Global Dynamics. Oh yes, and Grant has come forward in time with them.

As they try to adjust to this new timeline, they have to deal with mysterious power surges, a zombie-style rage infection, a super-oxygen infestation, random teleportation (from 1947!), stalkerish A.I.s, people turning into stone statues, and hallucinations of people from the past. And Dr. Grant starts discovering that the future isn't all it's cracked up to be.

I was starting to lose faith in "Eureka" after the disappointing Season 3.5, which was basically a bunch of standalone episodes. And while "time travel ripples" sounds like a cheap way of shaking things up, it actually works quite well here -- the writers spend the entire season exploring the repercussions of time travel.
