TV: House

House Title ScreenB and I are completely used to seeing House, Dr. Gregory House, do nearly anything to a patient, including kill him, in order to save his life. So it was a shock to see him in this set of episodes, "House's Head" and "Wilson's Heart", trying to kill himself! Well, given House, maybe not a complete shock.

House is played by British actor Hugh Laurie, think Stuart Little. He has a killer American accent. As horrible and scruffy as he is, the show is awesome. If you haven't taken the time to watch at least 5 episodes, get your bottom in gear.

I try not to get hung up on the details when watching TV. It's supposed to be entertainment. I bet there's a slew of doctors out there grumbling about the inaccuracies in the show. Of course, there's a whole group of people out there appalled at the way Dr. House treats people and gets away with it. How many people does that leave to actually watch the show? Check out the ratings.

I was more upset for Dr. Wilson, House's routinely battered friend, than I was for Amber, but she was only on for the season. I've been watching poor Wilson get stomped for the last three seasons. The three new interns seemed to have put a new spin on the show. I like how they've kept the other three doctors (Cameron, Chase & Foreman) on the show, even though they don't all have major roles. House's interaction with Cuddy, the hospital administrator, has been a riot. Lastly, I've really enjoyed some of the guest stars...Charles S. Dutton, LL Cool J, Andrew Arlie, Chi McBride (he was evil!), and Sela Ward.

Love this show.
