Product Description

Product Description

The complete first three seasons of the award-winning medical drama starring Hugh Laurie. Dr. Gregory House (Laurie) is a very well qualified doctor with one foible; he's completely devoid of bedside manner. In fact he's almost completely devoid of any kind of social graces whatsoever and is even quite acerbic. This singularity suits him fine as it means most people leave him alone to get on with it. These Sherlock-Holmes-like tendencies dictate that he is left to concentrate on the medical conundrums nobody else is willing to deal with. First season episodes comprise: 'Pilot'; 'Paternity'; 'Occam's Razor'; 'Maternity'; 'Damned If You Do'; 'The Socratic Method'; 'Fidelity'; 'Poison'; 'DNR'; 'Histories'; 'Detox'; 'Sports Medicine'; 'Cursed'; 'Control'; 'Mob Rules'; 'Heavy'; 'Role Model'; 'Babies and Bathwater'; 'Kids'; 'Love Hurts'; 'Three Stories'; and 'The Honeymoon'. Second season episodes are: 'Acceptance', 'Autopsy', 'Humpty Dumpty', 'TB or Not TB', 'Daddy's Boy', 'Spin', 'Hunting', 'The Mistake', 'Deception', 'Failure to Communicate', 'Need to Know', 'Distractions', 'Skin Deep', 'Sex Kills', 'Clueless', 'Safe', 'All In', 'Sleeping Dogs Lie', 'House vs. God', 'Euphoria (1)', 'Euphoria (2)', 'Forever', 'Who's Your Daddy'? and 'No Reason'. Third season episodes are: 'Meaning', 'Cane & Able', 'Informed Consent', 'Lines in the Sand', 'Fools for Love', 'Que Será Será', 'Son of Coma Guy', 'Whac-A-Mole', 'Finding Judas', 'Merry Little Christmas', 'Words and Deeds', 'One Day, One Room', 'Needle in a Haystack', 'Insensitive', 'Half-Wit', 'Top Secret', 'Foetal Position', 'Airborne', 'Act Your Age', 'House Training', 'Family', 'Resignation', 'The Jerk' and 'Human Error'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Is there a finer medical programme on television right now than House? Sure, ER continues to grab the attention and acclaim, but even a powerhouse show such as that doesn’t have such an ingenious creation at the heart of it as Hugh Laurie’s award-winning Dr Gregory House.

The premise of House centres each episode around a diagnostic challenge for the blunt, brilliant, rude and unconventional Doctor and his team. The investigations into the various ailments even have a pseudo-CSI feel to them, generally set against the time-pressure of a rapidly degenerating patient.

Yet while the medicine enthrals, House is all about the characters. The superb supporting cast, including Omar Epps, Robert Sean Leonard and Lisa Edelstein, of long-suffering colleagues and staff are strong, providing the nucleus of a fair few story threads themselves. Yet it’s Hugh Laurie’s astonishing performance in the title role that makes it all work.

In Laurie’s hands, Dr Gregory House becomes one of the most memorable television characters of recent times, replacing snide comments and sarcasm at a point where a calm bedside manner would be far more appropriate. Across the three seasons in this terrific boxset, therefore, he makes more than his fair share of enemies, including a police detective intent on sending him down and a patient or two who look to exact some form of revenge.

Anchored by razor-sharp writing, House is, undoubtedly, a major success and a highly enjoyable television programme. And with over 60 episodes to enjoy here, this collection of the first three seasons is a terrific investment. --Simon Brew

I am Sooooo angry, I have been watching, and enjoying enormously, the repeats of House season 2 every day Channel 5, and then season 3 on Thursday evenings on 5 US. As I am hard of hearing and the dialogue is sometimes fast and technical, I always have the sub-titles turned ON. So can you imagine how I felt when I received this box set of Series 1, 2 & 3 for 35 GBP to find there are NO Bleeping Subtitles. I should have read all the Amazon reviews before I bought it.
Thanks Universal, great job, at the bottom of the back cover, in tiny print, it says SUBTITLE TRACKS and then in an even smaller font NONE. Good job I've recorded most of the repeats with the sub titles included. No wonder people download bootlegs.

If you're a casual viewer of House with Hugh Laurie, I definitely advise you to buy this box set and set aside a weekend for some excellently crafted viewing. I'd only seen the odd episode before buying this, and upon doing so found an addiction normally the reserve of narcotics users! It's a good cast, though odd at first to see 'Billy from Neighbours' in it, but Laurie stands out as usual. The dryer than dry wit and razor sharp sarcasm never gets tiring (though the word 'lupus' does!).

Unlike with other similar programmes, they aren't afraid to change how they are perceived in House, though they do stick to the same plot outline for most episodes. It's kept fresh by House's never ending barrage of insults and put downs which are carried off effortlessly by Laurie.

Buy it, would be my advice!

Watched the 3 series on TV and have now bought this set. Absolutely one of the best TV programmes of this century (and probably the last). Well written, well acted and with enough pace to keep any enthralled. Well worth the money.

Utterly ridiculous series. Should not have bought it. Suitable for the young perhaps, but most people over the age of 40 don't want to be frightened by story after story of really sick people and a totally unconvincing mad doctor. Poor direction and childish telling of silly stories.

House is an unexpected find i like to buy box sets and house is one i have only just looked at an purchised it was good value thats why i tried it and i am glad i did because it is worth buying at full price i had been put off medical comedy from scrubs which i thought was terrible but that is comedy focused with house i like how the medical side is serious and interesting mixed with subtle actually sometimes blatently harsh humour is very good it is fast paced in depth well acted it is one of my best finds to date and i have 5 more series to look forward to.
