5.0 out of 5 stars Bringing the House down yet again, 17 Aug. 2009
This review is from: House Season 5 [DVD] (DVD)
Now on its 5th season I was expecting House- like many other series before it to be losing its sparkle.However I was very ,very wrong and amazingily it the same quick pace, and gripping episodes with a freshness to keep you hooked.I think part of the sercret of House being still so good as that it progress in a natural way as real peoples lifes do- that and the amazing acting .
In the series their is the initally- "will Wilson leave or talk to House" cliffhanger.
Fortunately the writers dont drawl this out and its resolved within about 3 episodes.With a terrific road trip thrown in.
Meanwhile House employs a detective Lucas- who is utterly hilarous and the banter between House and lucas is electric.
Sadily Lucas soon leaves , which I did feel was the one bad point of the series.
Then another progression Love- House in Love with someone rather than himself ? Not giving away to much but this is well played out.
Intereastingly a lot of the cases Houses takes are solved by a sycronicity in Houses own personal life, and this is a lovely human touch to him. Again we learn deeper about House and wonder more what really makes him tick.On the other hand we get to gloat at his wondeful sharpness and witty hostilaty to everyone around him.
Secretly we would all love to be House, being so direct not caring what we say and really smart.Which is part of the addictive quality of house watching it and thinking " I wish I could say that ". With many of these moments in this series.

Again Cameron, and Chase are still there but as sad as I am to say this I am starting ot think its time they moved on a bit.Foreman meanwhile manages to get rescued from his background position by the relationship he strikes up with Thirteen ( which is gripping ). He was such a strong charachter that its a shame he doesnt get more of this, or more of the sparring he used to have with House.
Again equal time is given to all the other charachters ,with each of them featuring highily in at least one episode each. Taub shows another slightly tragic side to him .While Kutner ( who has never really emerged as a strong charachter ) causes a huge shock that has rippling effects on everyone.
Overall this season has more House at his best.
Human storys, tradgies, sit up in your seat moments, and still has the power to make you gasp.
Its this winning cimbination that makes this still one of the best series on Tv- I dont want to spoil it for you- but really its fantastic and I loved every episode.
So overal buy it- any doubts I had about season 5 were quickly dismisssed and I proudly add this series to the other 4 series Dvds I have.
And whats more can hardly wait for season 6- if only all TV was as good as this.
