Season 5 of the series House ended memorably with a well-edited contrast: family and friends at warm wedding vs. Wilson watching the broken doctor as he checked himself into a hospital on a cold and gray day. Season 6 starts off with House (Hugh Laurie) in treatment for his vicodin addiction, an addiction which had fueled a series of devastating (yet revealing) hallucinations. Viewers know how House treats "normal" people (that is to say, not with warm and fuzzy feelings) and in the beginning of Season 6 they are treated to House interacting with "abnormal" people. House, ever the equal opportunity offender, does not seem too changed by his stint in Mayfield hospital. Andre Braugher (of "Homicide") was well cast as House's experienced, nothing-shocks-him therapist, able to go head-to-head with House, and there is a guest role by Franka Potente ("Run Lola Run") as a beautiful visitor to the hospital with whom House has a brief relationship.
The writers are able to take House out of his comfort zone, surround him with multi-dimensional characters, and still have House stand out. Don't expect any blatant epiphanies in therapy for House about why he is the way he is. Is it the pain, is it the drugs, his relationship with is father, is it the curse of being a genius? There are no resolutions to go back into the "real world," settle down and live happily ever after. Thank goodness!
The epiphanies are of course saved for the hospital, when House returns to work. He gradually becomes more confident in his ability to solve cases. Even after five previous seasons, the writers are able to come up with all new cases and all new characters for House to read right through.Read more ›
House has to save a woman pinned under wreckage at an emergency medical scene. At first he gauges his treatment around what runs counter to Cuddy's recs because she has just told him that she is engaged to Lucas. Then his true talent as a life saver takes over as he admits his failure to connect with others and gets down to doing what needs to be done at the scene. This is a very poignant episode about the terrible choices one can face as a doctor at an emergency medical scene. By episode's end, you are so drained that you think the other emergency workers are lucky because they don't have to make the life and death decisions. House's ride in the ambulance with his patient is an absolute must-see. It shows just how excellent an actor Hugh Laurie is. Just watch his face as certain implications register with him. There is much more going on but watch the episode to see it. I'd say the opening and closing episodes of House were the very strongest ones this season and it is in large part because they focused on the main character and used everyone else as support.
For those who have not seen the fullness of Hugh Laurie's talent, I highly recommend you watch his portrayal of Bertie Wooster in JEEVES & WOOSTER, available everywhere in 4 DVD sets of 4 seasons of the show.Read more ›
So realizing that House is more than ever the whole show, how is it? If you have always loved House the character, and I have, it is better than ever, because House is better than ever as a character. Hugh Laurie gives it his all in every single episode. Perhaps the opening two episodes are the strongest he's ever done where he is in a mental hospital, first detoxing and then dealing with his breaks from reality leading to his complete mental breakdown. Laurie covers House's stint as a mental patient in true virtuoso form. Then he has to pick up practicing medicine again back at the hospital so we start in with new episodes with his new patients. These remain the same strong dramas as before. He has dramas with his doctors too, all different ones with Wilson, Cuddy and Forman being the only constants. If you want to see any other particular doctor, it is simply the luck of the draw on which episode you play to get that character.

Replacement for the first set I lost. You either like House or you don't. There are always subtle messages that make you think. Just a good show that holds your interest. Read morePublished 6 days ago by T Marks
nowhere in the ad was it mentioned that I was ordering a digital version only. I needed a gift for my wife and was seeking a DVD to be viewed on our big-screen TV. Very deceptive.Published 21 days ago by Angry

I don't know if you've already tried this. I was worried about breaking the discs too, but then I figured out the "trick" to this packaging. You have to press "down" on the disc - there's this little "arm" at the bottom of the circle where the disc sits (if the... Read More

|Does the Blu-ray come with the dvd version as well?||
No, they don't. Sorry. Usually if that is the case it will say "Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Pack" or something like that, and I've never heard of a TV show that has done that.

I have a Magnavox dvd recorder that takes forever to load, and sometimes if it takes too long to load, it won't read the discs. What brand player do you have?
