House is one of the most amazing tv series in years. What do you think?

I just love watching each week as Dr. Greg House and his staff try to analyze and solve medical mysteries. Right now I am not sure what is going on...It seems to have changed from Tuesday to Monday nights, for a while it was on both, but not this week. Last night I watched a cool episode where House was lecturing to a class of med students about various patients with leg problems. As is the norm, the stories began to mix with present time and his own life eventually finding him on an operating table, with his exwife acting as his proxy and deciding how his operation should go. Did anyone else see this?I love his wit and quick almost nasty replies. He has the kind of personality I would love to have and feel I can never get away with. His sarcasm and anger are funny and yet I know if I tried that stuff I would get cut down very fast. I love the way he always KNOWS and turns out to be right after so much study, but he cannot seem to solve his own pain/addiction cycle. Since I am a victim of chronic pain myself due to a disease in my back, I can identify somewhat with that part of his life.

I'm a huge fan of House. The episode you saw was a repeat, because of some scheduling conflict, but a new episode will come on this coming Tuesday. I think House, the character, is one of the most interesting, complex men on tv. If he was just a sarcastic, nasty guy, that wouldn't be enough to be the main character of a tv show. I love the sarcasm, but there's a lot of depth besides that. He's not a nice guy, but I do think he's a good guy. I'm also finding this current storyline fascinating and wondering just how far House is going to fall. And, Hugh Laurie is an acting genius.

Where do you live because I remember that episode from last year. This is an amazing show. I look forward to it every week. You can learn so amazing things from it. He seems to get cut an amazing amount of slack due to his disability. I saw him on Saturday Night Live and was amazed at his accent.

I'm in Canada, but it's also because I have satellite TV and they play old ones on some stations and new ones on other nights on other stations. His accent is totally sexy. Did you know he was also the father on the Stuart Little movies? He was made up real clean cut and kind of dorky, the House character is way more handsome.

Great show. But the best TV show ever is The Shield. hands down. Ive been watchin it since the beginning and its amazing. Last Seasons Season Finale was the most shocking and moving episode I have ever seen in a TV show. It was so real and disturbing that I was thinking about it for like a months. It actually kept me from sleeping that night. And everyone Ive talked to said the same thing about that episode. I was speechless. And while the sapranos is or was good nothing is as good as the shiel night in and night out. I cant wait for the next seson to start.

You should watch more. It's addictive. And all the episodes are individual but they also all run together.

You should try to find it somewhere on your available TV programming. Here I watch it on CTV.

I like House because he is always trying to figure out some unusual illness and nobody else wants to believe him. He is a very different from the ordinary classic character on TV series.

Maybe if the world had more doctors like him, the health care system would get stronger and more efficient. His goal is to help the patients, not just to collect his bill. That is what doctors should be about. They should EARN their money like the rest of us. I know they work hard, but in places like here in Canada where they are paid by the government I think they just try to push as many through as possible for more pay, instead of efficiently solving the ones they have. They get behind that way and then the waiting time is too long.
