As a big fan of CSI and medical dramas like Grey's Anatomy, I could hardly wait to buy House on DVD, and I wasn't disappointed. Like so many other shows, House works brilliantly when watched in chunks - 2 or 3 episodes at a time! I lost a lot of sleep watching the series 1 through the first time, and when I finished, I simply threw the first disc back in the player and started again from the beginning.

I remember Hugh Laurie from the Fry and Laurie days of long ago, as well as Blackadder, Jeeves and Wooster, and so on, and have always been a fan. But I was still amazed by the quality of his acting on this show. His American accent is so realistic, you forget he is English (in fact I almost got a shock listening to his English accent on the bonus features), and his comic timing makes the best of a witty and clever script. His banter with Dr Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) is really enjoyable, as is his relationship with the doctors on his team, although honestly, I don't think they can hold a candle to Laurie in terms of ability or on-screen charisma.

Personally, I like the formulaic nature of each episode, as the characters, the humour and the tremendous variety of sometimes bizarre medical problems stop it getting boring. However, my favorite episode of season 1 was the one that broke the formula by following three cases at once. In this penultimate episode of the series we get a deeper insight into House's character, his past and his leg injury, which stirs up more sympathy for his character, as well as giving Laurie an opportunity to demonstrate some really fine acting.

I recently introduced the series to a friend of mine who is a critical care nurse and she loved it! I'm just about to buy series 2!

After ER, Chicago Hope, and dozens of other medical dramas, how many really good stories could be left? Turns out, quite a few if done in the right way with an excellent cast. House M.D. breathes new life into the hospital drama by adding a dash of CSI type sleuthing with a stellar cast, led by the genius British actor Hugh Laurie (Jeeves and Wooster) as Dr. Gregory House and also starring Lisa Edelstein, Omar Epps, and Robert Sean Leonard.

Dr. Gregory House is an incredibly unusual doctor. He dislikes patients, is partially crippled by a muscular disorder, pops Vicodin like they are tic-tacs, and is addicted to reruns of General Hospital. He would rather read a medical journal or hide out in the OB/GYN lounge than deal with a patient. His true purpose in life is leading a team of young doctors in diagnosing the usually rare and fatal maladies that baffle most doctors. Here House is part Sherlock Holmes and part Gil Grissom. He assembles the puzzle, often failing to get the pieces right, until finally the solution is arrived at. In the meantime he runs rampant across the hospital, badgering or simply bullying his way into getting what he needs to try and help the patient. His bedside manner is not pleasant, in fact House is a jerk because being a jerk is the fastest way to get patients healthy.

Besides trying to diagnose diseases that would baffle Doogie Howser, he is forced by the hospital adminstrator to treat patients during free clinic hours, a fate which to House is akin to death. He hates patients, who he believes are by nature liars, but having to deal with them face to face allows a slightly softer side to House to shine and also give the show some needed humor amidst the darkness.

There are dozens of reasons not to like House - it is outrageously formulaic, ludicrously far-fetched and often overly contrived and laboured - it is also one of the most wonderful television shows I have had the pleasure of watching. The pithy dialogue, thoughful direction and most of all, the beautifully measured acting of the central cast more than make up for any shortcomings. Hugh Laurie delivers a tour-de-force performance as the flawed genius - proving my long held theory that genuinely great dramatic performances are best achieved by casting comedians. The supporting cast, whilst always playing second-fiddle to Laurie, are equally competent performers and the will-they-won't-they relationship between House and Dr Cameron (the gorgeous Jennifer Morrison) provides a welcome romantic subplot - although is strangely remensicent of the Grissom/Sara relationship in CSI. All-in-all this show is (almost despite itself) captivating and I challenge anyone to not be so obsessed with its protaganist that by the penultimate episode - easily the season's best - they will be aching to know more about what makes this man tick. I absolutely recommend without question this genius piece of television gold.

First of all, I'll just agree with all the other reviewers in saying that this is an excellent series, and Hugh Laurie's performance is fantastic and totally believable playing as the misanthropic wise-cracking lead.

However, the main point I wanted to make is just to make people aware of the shows style, and give my own opinion about the repetitive structure of the show; Something that other people have mentioned.

Basically, you shouldn't really be thinking about House in terms of a typical hospital drama like ER, or Chicago Hope, or etc. etc. The genre that House is most like is actually the detective story, and if you think of House as "Columbo with a Stethascope" then you will be closer to the mark.

Each episode involves him tracing the clues that will lead to the cure of a patient, but there are also some excellent sub-plots running through all the shows, and lets not forget, House gets to deliver some seriously funny lines.

This is a must buy.
