House is a brilliant show medically speaking but so much more than that
at the same time. The show is a kind of "24" meets medicine
extravaganza. The main character, Dr. Gregory House, is played
beautifully by Hugh Laurie. Dr. House is a bitter but brilliant doctor
who is crippled in one leg due to the inability of doctors to properly
diagnose his problem in time. This makes him a decidedly bitter person
when dealing with others yet he is one of the best doctors in his field
of diagnostic medicine. He is being forced to serve his clinic hours
that he had avoided for a number of years, and this is where the show
takes place; in a walk in clinic. Each show is a mysterious new case
that puts the patient's life on the line as time runs out. I am
disheartened by all of the bad comments people are making about this
show, but everyone I have seen this show with and everyone I have shown
the show to love it and find it enormously entertaining, funny, and
