5.0 out of 5 stars House MD Blu-Ray
This review is purely about the blu ray quality and packaging, because House has been around for a number of years so most people will know if they like the show or not.

So, it comes in a fairly large box that, when the lid is removed, contains all 8 seasons. They cases have completely different covers/pictures to the DVD versions and each case is fairly chunky...

3.0 out of 5 stars Could Be Better
While the picture quality is fine, the sound is lossy, even the later series which were previously available with HD audio have been repressed to accomodate as many dubs and subs as possible so one set can be sold around the world in different packaging (except America where theme music by Massive Attack was used). I'm hoping America gets a set before too long, in the...

5.0 out of 5 stars House MD Blu-Ray, 23 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: House - Complete Collection [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This review is purely about the blu ray quality and packaging, because House has been around for a number of years so most people will know if they like the show or not.

So, it comes in a fairly large box that, when the lid is removed, contains all 8 seasons. They cases have completely different covers/pictures to the DVD versions and each case is fairly chunky (about 2 or 3 times standard blu ray cases). The discs are in flip trays. Only fault is that the cases don't close properly. If you attempt to close the case normally it gets to about halfway closed but then gets stuck and a clicking sound occurs. It's fairly hard to explain but you sort of have to squeeze the top and bottom in at the same time then close. Only a minor problem though, everything else is of really high quality.

In terms of the actual discs then, one of the major complaints about the DVD's was that they never had no subtitles for seasons 1-6. I played this set on a playstation 3 and subtitles were available in numerous languages. The menu's are all very nice, only complaint is that when you get to the main menu they use icons i.e there's a house icon that takes you back home, a book which is scene select etc). It's a bit confusing as to what all these icons mean at first, text would have been better. Although I can't go into technical details, the discs look so much better in blu ray. I remember on TV the colour of the older episodes was horrible - but here it is clear and crisp and much more colourful. It becomes especially obvious when the camera zooms into the body, and you can see the blood cells travelling round the body. Sound seems good too.

Personally, I rate House as one of the best shows ever so this was a no brainer for me to get. So far this set hasn't disappointed, and I'm looking forward to watching this great series all over again. When you consider that most new TV shows are available on amazon for around 20-30 a series, this set represent fairly good value for money too IMO. As mentioned in the comments though it is available for 3 cheaper elsewhere.
