Diagnosis: Excellent drama,
This review is from: House - Season 2 (Hugh Laurie) [DVD] (DVD)
Along with his crack team of caring sharing Cameron, flash young Aussie Case, and confident ex-con Foreman, Gregory House continues to frustrate his family, annoy his colleagues and bamboozle his superiors, as he cherry picks unusual cases for himself and his team of diagnosticians to unravel.
As ever, House's unconventional methods and crabby manner hide a brilliant mind; regularly sending his team to break into patients' homes in order to uncover secrets that may help him diagnose them, House continually baits hospital manager Cuddy and in this series becomes re-acquainted with his ex-wife, a crack lawyer whose new role as the hospital's legal representative forms a loose story arc for the entire season.
British comedy stalwart Hugh Laurie continues to invest House with wit, gruff charm, and unresolved anger, and after the introductions of the first season there is scope here for some more innovative and imaginative episodes which keep the show fresh and fascinating.
Watching an entire season back to back means that it's easy to see there is a formula, like British hospital drama Casualty, the show opens each time with an accident about to happen or someone experiencing strange symptoms which bring them into House's remit. However, the formula still works well and the episodes are without exception extremely absorbing; I look forward to catching season 3 next!
