I have recently become addicted to the hospital drama show House.I just love how a complete jerk is in charge on saving people.

However one thing I find very strange is seeing doctors playing CSI going into people's houses looking for toxic products or infection elements.Also I would love to live in a world where a hospital can afford to put 4 doctors on your case

I am watching it right now! I love my TiVo! I started watching it right after it came out, and I got hooked immediately. It's a great show. He is a total jerk, but that's just who he is.

I bought season one on DVD so I could get caught up. I didn't see all of that season, but it is now appointment television for me. I told my wife that I don't like House in spite of him being a jerk I like him because he is a jerk. Also notice the sig.

There was one episode where he 'put on' (i.e. used his actual voice) an English accent.

That was confusing!

I was watching a repeat of Comedy Connections on telly last night, covering A Bit of Fry and Laurie. I was reminded that the show ran for 9 years (not to mention how much I love Hugh Laurie).

Fry and Laurie both spoke about being approached initially to do Jeeves and Wooster and refusing on the grounds that it would be impossible to translate such a great stylist as Wodehouse to the screen without bollocking it up. The producers said they would take the project elsewhere, which prompted the pair to change their position, on the grounds that if anyone was going to be allowed to bollocks up the world of Jeeves and Wooster, it would be them. God knows who the next double-act on the producers' list was!

I also just realized last week that it was Hugh Laurie who played "The Gentleman on the Plane" in an episode of Friends. That guy cracked me up when I first saw that episode and then I realized years later that it was Hugh Laurie because I had never seen him until House.

I tried to watch House. I rented part of season 1 from Netflix.

But I just couldn't take it. I liked the premise of investigating obscure diseases.

I could suspend my disbelief at having four doctors sitting around doing nothing until an obscure disease presented itself.

I like the characters they put together. And I've liked Hugh Laurie since Blackadder.

But I couldn't suspend my disbeleif at the way they hit-and-missed. Diagnisis can be hit-and-miss, of course. But usually a doctor doesn't flat out TELL a patient "you've got MS" on so little evidence. Or do dangerous treatments on little evidence. And I couldn't get past that.

I thought it might just be a kink in the first few episodes, so I watched some from this season. Nope. Same jumping to conclusions and devestating patients/risking their lives needlessly. So no more House for me.


I had the same problem with NCIS. I liked the plots. I liked the characters. Except for Tony. I couldn't stand him. His behavior, and the way Kate put up with it, ruined the entire show for me. I even watched a few episodes with the new agent, but Tony was still such a dick that I finally gave up.

LOL! Yes. But the actor who plays Tony didn't want off the show, and the actor who played Kate did.

Alas.

On the one episode on House where they broke into the lady's house to find she eats ham, I wondered why the heck they just didn't ASK her for permission and her key? Why? It just seemed so contrived.

Well, of course they won't ask her, because Dr. House believes that all patients lie. They have to sneak around to find out for themselves, that's the only way they'll know the truth. [Razz]

Well MD's playing CSI's is no weirder than an MD doing his/her own lab tests or having an MD actually operating an MRI or other complicated machine. I would think that in the case of lab tests they are not qualified and/or certified to do the tests. In the case of a complex machine like an MRI or CAT scanner, they wouldn't have the necessary training on the instrument. In any case, the expert operators are technicians that (1) are much better trained at the test or instrument than an MD and (2) get paid much less than an MD.

It is just a little theatrical license. It is much more interesting to see Chase running the MRI then see him fill out a form requesting an MRI and putting it in inter-hospital mail.

edit: CSI's not CIS's

I met him once, years ago. He's also a very nice guy. I have no idea if he's the same now or not, but when I met him, (right after Dead Poets Society came out) he was kind of quiet- quite the opposite of his character in DPS!

I watched and adored the entire first season of House, but by curious circumstance, I never once saw the credits. But I just loved that fabulous actor who played House, and I knew I'd seen him before, but I just couldn't put my finger on it.

After almost a full year of loving the show, I read a little snippet about it in TV Guide, and saw "Blah blah blah House (Hugh Laurie) blah blah blah," and thought "Wow! What a coincidence! One of my favorite actors is called Hugh Laurie, and here's this House guy he's also called--" And then my brain finally clicked (or rather, slammed two pieces of information together with the force of two semi trucks colliding). I mean, I loved the man for Blackadder, Jeeves and Wooster, A Bit of Fry and Laurie... The part of House is such a not-Hugh Laurie role that my brain didn't even register that it was him, and when confronted with the evidence in print, attempted to deny it.


Great. Thanks guys. And now I'm having the same reaction for Wilson. "Wilson was the guy from Much Ado about Nothing??? WILSON??? That was WILSON???!! OMFG!!!11!"

One of my favorite awards-show moments of all time was at last year's Emmys (or People's Choice, I forget), when Hugh Laurie and Zach Braff were presenting together. Laurie began the intro in his normal voice, Braff looked at him strangely, then said "I didn't know we were doing this with accents." before launching into an exaggerated British accent. I was dying.

Max_Renn, I saw that. Pants-wetter, wasn't it?

Okay, Brad and Gayle. At the recommendation of two people I love and respect, I have added the first couple of discs of Jeeves & Wooster to my Netflix queue. I'm looking forward to that. I also season 1 of "Fry & Laurie".

I've also become addicted to House, entirely because of Hugh Laurie.

Question: who would win in a fight between Perry Cox and Gregory House?

I saw the Dead Ringers parody first and thought it was too exaggerated to be true - that they were mocking Laurie's role in a US series by giving him a fake accent.

Then I saw the show. It's still horribly jarring to hear him talk that way.

Anyway, it's an entertaining program and House is quickly becoming one of my favourite fictional characters. The man plays with a DS, he can't be all bad [Razz]

I love YouTube.

To clarify, I'd never heard of that moment, but when I read your post it occurred to me that everything else in the universe (except for SNL) is on YouTube, so I searched for it. And there it was. Man, that's cool.

Anyway, I randomly caught "House" a few months ago, and while I normally find all those forensic/medical/CSI/Cold Case/NCIS/Without a Trace/Criminal Minds/Numbers shows to be mind-numbingly banal, hackneyed and unrealistic, there was something refreshingly smart about this one. Not that it's realistic or true to life, but it does seem to me more sophisticated than those other shows. And my roomate, who's pre-med and applying to medical schools at the moment, says that the medicine on the show is largely accurate. (Obviously, things like the set design and doctors' behavior are not.)

I just began watching House 2 or 3 months ago, but I LOVE it. I don't know much about Hugh Laurie but my sister played a song he sang on Inside The Actor's Studio & it was brilliant. I'm towards the end of the most recent (second?) season. How can I access the first season without buying it?

The only way I know of is to catch reruns somehow, or to see if you can get it through your library. I don't know if they have things like this, but it's not completely unheard of.

Obviously, I'm not British, but the fact that the accent he did was so obviously not British (or really anything else for that matter) was what made it so funny for me. YMMV, of course.
