"House" Review by Suzanne 1/2/05

House cast picture from jsonline.comThis is one of the best shows on TV right now.  But don't let the hint at "quality" and all of the great reviews fool you.  This is a very entertaining, fun, and engrossing show.

British actor Hugh Laurie, who hides his accent well on this show, stars as Dr, Gregory House, a gruff, often rude, doctor at a hospital.  Laurie has starred in many TV shows and movies, most notably "Blackadder" and "Jeeves & Wooster" (both hilarious), but he might be best known to American audiences for his role as the father in the "Stuart Little" movies.

Dr. House doesn't really like people much, so he has no bedside manner and would rather skip seeing patients all together.  He walks with a cane, due to some disease from the past.  The important thing is, he is a genius at solving medical puzzles.  That is what makes this show different from past medical shows such as "ER" or "Chicago Hope".  It is more like a mystery show because House and his band of interns try to solve the latest puzzle that interests him (usually a case that he overhears other doctors talking about).  House's acerbic wit and the way he talks to people gives the show plenty of humor, but the show is also a medical drama.

Some of the interns or other doctors are played by some famous names, such as Omar Epps and Robert Sean Leonard.   All of the acting and writing is top-notch. You won't find clunky dialogue or plots that drag on this show.  If you only have time in your schedule for ONE show this year, this should be the one you choose.  It's on FOX, so hurry and catch it before they come to their senses and cancel it for another reality show or some sitcom featuring huge-breasted women.  Maybe PBS or A&E will then pick it up.
