You can't always get what you want...
on 20 March 2011
Well actually, in some rare cases, you can - get what you want. This is exactly what I wanted. I'm in love! Seasons 1-6 of House and in a boxset? Available on demand, any time, are you kidding me?! :)
I have no criticism - except that I wanted more. More special features... But then I'm greedy like that and too much wouldn't be enough for me here. Special features become more generous as the season's progress, so I suppose I will have to be lenient. As for the content...
Hugh Laurie IS House. The man is a genius, he was made for this role, so get comfortable, start at the beginning and watch it all unfold. Inspired casting, writing, directing. The stories are metaphoric, unpredictable and addictive. And the frightening thing is I don't even like medical dramas. Laurie's misanthropist is sexy, wry and gorgeous (god knows when that happened). Great eye candy, fabulous characters and the best comedy, it's a dream of sophisticated intelligent viewing.
Fantastic quality dvds which look almost HD if played on a blu ray player.
Why did I buy it? Saw an episode of House, Season 7, on TV and from that one glimpse fell in love. Bought Season One - didn't want to take a risk on the whole lot, but before I'd even finished that box set I had ordered this. The original one has been passed to a family member and it was still cheaper to buy that AND this 1-6 set than buy them all singularly.
Great value for money and honestly, my favourite obsession in a long while.
