Product Description

All 16 episodes from the fourth season of the award-winning medical drama starring Hugh Laurie as the stone-faced MD, Dr Gregory House, who, although very well qualified, is completely devoid of any bedside manner. In this season, House is forced to choose a new staff member, diagnoses a researcher at the South Pole, and survives a bus crash. Episodes comprise: 'Alone', 'The Right Stuff', '97 Seconds', 'Guardian Angels', 'Mirror Mirror', 'Whatever It Takes', 'Ugly', 'You Don't Want to Know', 'Games', 'It's a Wonderful Lie', 'Frozen', 'Don't Ever Change', 'No More Mr Nice Guy', 'Living the Dream', 'House's Head' and 'Wilson's Heart'.

From Amazon.co.uk

How do you keep a medical show, entering its fourth series, fresh for another round of episodes? If you?re House, it?s easy: get rid of the main team, and have a new bunch come along and audition to be doctors. It?s a very House thing to do, and it makes the first half of season four an absolute blast.

Much of the reason for that of course is Hugh Laurie, in the title role. As House, he manages to turn himself into the medical Simon Cowell, chucking out outrageously sarcastic asides, while also giving space to the intriguing collection of supporting players. It?s a stunning performance. On top of that is the usual assortment of medical mysteries, including a brilliantly constructed remote diagnosis of a patient stuck in the South Pole.

Even when the audition phase is over, House has plenty to offer, not least a terrific concluding two-parter that continually pulls the proverbial rug. And the ingenuity of the scriptwriters shouldn?t go without praise, continually delivering a series of brilliant medical whodunits for Laurie and his team to solve.

If there?s a problem with House season four, it?s that it tries to cram too many characters in there, but it?s not a serious concern. For it?s a show that knuckles down and gets on with things quickly, continually managing to surprise and entertain. You may never want to be treated by Dr House, but it?s enormous fun watching him treat others? --Simon Brew

5.0 out of 5 stars House ( Do I Need To Say More?) 13 Aug 2008
By Andrew Kerr TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
To tell you the truth, I wasn't expecting much from this forth season. Sure I'm a big fan of House, but season three ended in such a way that left me somewhat disappointed, and I wasn't sure how the show was going to recover from that rather unexpected final. I also wasn't sure what direction House was heading in, and if they could improve on the otherwise brilliant previous three seasons. Thankfully it didn't take long for my fears to pass and I was proven wrong in the best possible way as House Season Four is exceptionally good.

Hugh Laurie (as usual) is remarkable as Gregory House, a doctor who describes himself in the final episode as a "...lonely misanthropic drug addict." He is supported by Lisa Edelstein (Cuddy), Robert Sean Leonard (Wilson), Jesse Spencer (Chase), Jennifer Morrison (Cameron), Omar Epps (Foreman), as well as the new members of his team (I won't spoil it by telling you who he finally hires in case you haven't yet seen it.) But all of these actors and actress are absolutely stellar in their roles. Doctor Wilson especially is unbelievably good though out the season. Whether he's kidnapping House's twelfth thousand dollar 1967 "Flying V" guitar or helping to diagnose a patient that's trapped at the South Pole, you can count on him to be fantastic. Everything about the series is pretty much perfect. The medical cases and patients are terrific, House's mind-games with Cuddy and Wilson are still brilliant, and the humour is well suited. Each episode really is superb and a masterpiece of creation, perfectly scripted, and planned out.

I thought that the last two episodes in the series were the best. Simply because the cast members are all at their personal best creating a very emotionally charged rollercoaster ride.

By Andromeda Descendent TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
House is first and foremost a show about the character of Dr Gregory House and how he interacts with others. Yes it's a medical mystery / drama series too, but take House away and that would be it - no more show. Realising that in order to keep the show fresh and Hugh Laurie's character from getting repetitive or predictable, what the show really needed was 40ccs of fresh blood. Hence, the writers took the bold decision to cut the roles of his established team back considerably and allow House free reign over an entire roomful of wannabe assistants.

It was a brilliant and inspired idea, and it makes this fourth series possibly the best ever. House's reasons for firing the doctors to whittle them down and the ways he has of playing them off against each other never fail to surprise and provide priceless moments of entertainment. Best of all, the actors who play them are all extremely talented and they make you care, understand and wonder about the histories of their characters with very little lead in time.

Don't worry about Foreman, Cameron and Chase though - they're still there, and make enough appearances to justify the actors names remaining in the title sequence. In fact, their periods of absence actually allow them to grow a little as characters, and you can see the way that being distant from House has allowed them to change.

There are some unexpected moments too, especially come the last couple of episodes, but I won't give anything away - suffice to say that you should be prepared for one of the most moving scenes you have ever seen in a drama series.
