5 House is in the House!sedgehog | 03/05/2007 | See all sedgehog's reviews (26)House is one of the best shows on TV right now. Mixing medical procedural with humour, drama and mystery, this show has it all. While not like the other medical procedurals on TV this show uses the patients as the setting of the drama and not the focus. Hugh Laurie is exceptional as Gregory House, and you cant imagine anyone could play this role besides him. He can blend the serious character with side splitting witty humour which is consitently sharp. The thing that stands out to me on this show is the dialogue. Every scene has a great pace and ever word which leaves House`s lips is fantastic. His worker bees, or "young guns" do all the work as House limps about behind the scenes like a general marshalling his troops. His bizarre outlook on rules, ethics and life are strangely aggreable as his sole focus is to diagnose the patient. He revels in arguing and while most medical terms may fly over your head, you never feel lost. The show deals with the characters and gradually reveals about their pasts and provides some great drama. Likened to Sherlock Holmes in the fact that House=Holmes, Wilson(House`s best (only?) friend who is an oncologist)=watson and House solves the unsolvable gives you a basis for what to expect. You will immediately fall in love with this show and unable to stop watching!
