The complete third season of the award-winning medical drama starring Hugh Laurie as the stone-faced M.D., Dr. Gregory House. During this season, House, having only just recovered from his gunshot wounds, finds himself having to deal with two simultaneous cases; a man who drove his wheelchair into a swimming pool, and a women who suffers a strange injury while practicing yoga. From there the cases keep building up, including a boy who believes aliens have planet technology in them, an autistic child who screams for no apparent reason, and a couple who mysteriously collapse after being ribbed. All the while House has to deal with his own medical problems as well as dealing with the personal problems within his own team. Episodes include: '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', 'Fetal Position', 'Airborne', 'Act Your Age', 'House Training', 'Family', 'Resignation', 'The Jerk' and 'Human Error'.
The award-winning House simply gets better and better, as its third season again delivers entertainment to a consistently high standard. Powered by Hugh Laurie in the title role--and his performance is worthy of every plaudit its attracted--this is a medical mix of drama and highly sarcastic comedy, thats proven to be a considerable commercial and critical success.
The thinking behind the show is simple. Lauries Dr House is as reluctant, snide and miserable a medical practitioner as youre likely to find, although he happens to be a genius at solving the unsolvable cases. Along with his small team of doctors, each episode generally sees House as a medical mystery, with said team scrabbling to find the answers to devilishly complicated illnesses and diseases.
But Houses skill is its characters as well as its at-times ingenious plotlines. Hugh Laurie aside, Omar Epps, Jesse Spencer and Jennifer Morrison are terrific as Houses long-suffering staff, while Robert Sean Leonards Dr Wilson and Lisa Edelsteins Dr Cuddy are equally strong as his only friend and boss respectively.
The third season of House shakes things up quite a lot though. A good chunk of it, for instance, is concerned with Lauries Doctor coming under investigation from a detective who takes a dislike to Houses methods. Plus theres also a superb episode set mid-flight, and plenty of character issues to deal with too. No plot spoilers here, though!
In short, House is, and remains a triumph, by turns funny, dramatic and moving. And Laurie, surely in the role of a lifetime, is simply brilliant. Series four cant come quickly enough. --Simon Brew

During mid season House also gains himself a Vogler-esque type enemy, only this time it's a cop, and it lands House in some serious trouble. He's constantly haunted by this cop who insists on making House's life a misery until he's behind bars. House just carries on as usual, so the cop known as Tritter starts on his friends, first off is Wilson. This is a big test for their friendship as Wilson's life is almost destroyed by Tritter, but he refuses to give him up. Can we say the same for the team? Even Chase? Watch it and find out, you wont be disappointed.
You know the greatest thing about this show across all seasons? It's not the witty one liners or the likable supporting cast or the complex Dr. House. It's that the show isn't cliché, it doesn't have a case and solve it every episode and then make out like everything's cool. It shows you that actually life isn't like that and not everybody pulls through the rare life threatening illness. Although House may solve most of the cases, a lot of the time it's too late or sacrifices have to be made by patient relatives in order to save the patients life.Read more ›
House's problems become everyones problems as he insults a policeman who takes it personal and hounds him till he gets him on a charge of narcotics. Barriers are pushed and friendships are stretched to the absolute. But this ongoing story threads itself through the usual taut medical cases that are literally thrown at House who would rather watch tv or play video games.
Once you leave that initial story behind, there are more twists and turns in the individual storylines than twists and turns in a game of twister. One complaint is that with the end episode, I hoping that British tv gets a hold of series 4 next year. Here's hoping.
For shoppers unfamiliar with House (although this is the third season so I'd assume you could be if you've searched this in particular) its a "medical mystery" series in which House and his team of brilliant Doctors carry out medical investigations and attempt to diagnose and treat illnesses which have already proven confounding and can carry on doing so until the Sherlock Holmes like figure of House discovers what's really going on a reveals it all as really elementary. House himself isnt a nice guy, at least he hasnt any bedside manner, and his interactions with others all appear to be characterised by a low key hostility.
In this season of House this is developed to great extent and some of the reasons why House has choosen the profession he is in, one that necessitates such contact with people are mused about, I found this really entertaining. Although the viewer is left wondering whether House choose to be become a Doctor because he has some obsessive needs to unravel puzzles or because people will over look his character flaws because they need his learning.Read more ›
