All 24 episodes--which originally aired during the 2008-2009 television season--are included in this five-disc boxed set. A few of the episodes are tainted by a soap opera vibe, particularly the ones concentrating on the romance between Dr. Eric Foreman (Omar Epps) and Dr. Remy ""Thirteen"" Hadley (Olivia Wilde). Based on the first four seasons, Foreman's behavior seems way off. While love can change a man, it doesn't seem likely that Foreman would change this much--not even for someone as compelling as Thirteen. But House's boss, Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), has a juicy story line involving her quest to have a family. The struggles she goes through to adopt a baby depict how challenging it can be for women--even those who excel at everything else--to have it all. But her story line also shows that she is more resilient than she gives herself credit for. For all its medical jargon and scenes set in the operating room, House really is about relationships more than anything else. That's why when another character tragically dies this season, viewers take the loss to heart. --Jae-Ha Kim

Such phrases as "jump the shark" or "a broken House" are floating around, but do not believe them. Adamant fans of the show know that House has always been a show to take chances and hope the viewers come along for the ride. All this show has continued to do is take chances, and hope the viewers come along. Such as "Last Resort" in which the hospital is taken hostage, or "Locked In" where most of the perspective is in a blur and from the patient's point of view, or the latest "Simple Explanation" which may possibly be the best episode House has ever produced. Some say House is broken because it isn't what it used to be. And no, it isn't what it used to be. In many ways it's better.
This season has been about self exploration, and House's drive to change. This season has been about growth in our favorite damaged Doc. I write this review with the season not yet being done. There are still four episodes to go, but I can easily say that this show is still as amazing (if not even more so) than before. Do yourself a favor... buy season five of House... you will not be disappointed.
"Dr. Bell observed the way a person moved. The walk of a sailor varied vastly from that of a solider. If he identified a person as a sailor he would look for any tattoos that might assist him in knowing where their travels had taken them. He trained himself to listen for small differences in his patient's accents to help him identify where they were from. Bell studied the hands of his patients because calluses or other marks could help him determine their occupation." The Chronicles of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
So, "House" takes this full circle. Very entertaining and worth the time, just to refresh rare syndromes and their symptons and the character interactions are also fun.
There's still lots to like in season five of "House". Of course the main reason why this show still works is because of Hugh Laurie. He still makes this character watchable in every area. He's cranky, crabby, and very funny. The supporting cast has been terrific from the start and everyone delivered the goods in season five. Especially Lisa Edelstein, who plays House's boss Dr. Lisa Cuddy. She's been good the previous four seasons, but I felt she really came out on her own in season five. This character, who's been yearning to become a mother, finally got the chance to explore the adventures of single motherhood by adopting a baby. Plus there was the possibility of House and Cuddy getting together for more than just medicine. Whenever she was on screen, Edelstein was superb every time, and she should get an Emmy nomination this season for the terrific job she did (she probably won't, knowing how stupid the Emmy voters tend to be year after year). Also very good in season five, Robert Sean Leonard, who once again plays Dr. Wilson, Dr. House's only true friend. The early episodes when Dr. Wilson was grieving over the death of his girlfriend Amber (the young medical student who tried to get on House's new team in season four but failed) which led to his resignation at the hospital were handled very well, and it gave Leonard some of his best acting on the show. Like Edelstein, he's been unwisely ignored by Emmy voters as well, and he'll probably be ignored again this season.Read more ›
