    The sixth season of House, M.D. starts off with a phenomenal two-part episode that sets the tone for the rest of the year. After years of abusing prescription drugs (and colleagues), Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) finds himself in a psychiatric ward as a patient who is not so patient with his own doctor. Smart and manipulative, House tries to finagle his way out of the hospital. But his selfish actions set off a chain reaction of events that manage to shake even his own confidence--temporarily, at least. This season spends a lot of time delving into House's psyche and the writers do a wonderful job depicting a brilliant, sad, and flawed man who knows more than most, but not enough to save every patient who comes to see him. That glimpse allows viewers to sympathize with his addictions but leaves them guessing as to whether the good doctor will be able to shake his dependency on drugs for good. However, viewers are never actually convinced when House quits his job. In many ways, he is his job.

    House has always tackled fascinating cases and that continues this season, though the symptoms aren't overly dramatic by House standards. The team tries to save a man whose family history indicates that he will die of a heart attack before he turns 40. They try to help a brilliant scientist whose depression and addictions make him feel he's better suited for a simpler life as a courier. And Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard) may once again be grappling with cancer. It's a credit to this show that while it features such a strong lead character, the costars don't get shafted in the process. Wilson is one of the show's most charming characters and, by default, has become House's best friend. The two of them share a home and bicker like an old married couple. When a woman they both are attracted to mistakenly assumes that they're a complicated gay couple, we can't help but laugh. But Wilson's love life is made difficult by the return of his ex-wife and House doesn't want to see his friend hurt again. He can abuse Wilson, but he doesn't want her to do the same.

    House's boss Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) has her own issues, juggling a harried personal life and the complications that come with trying to keep House in line. Chase (Jesse Spencer) falls under scrutiny this season after treating a controversial politician who he fears will murder innocent civilians. He finds himself struggling with the Hippocratic oath to treat all patients--even the ones he finds distasteful--to the best of his ability. And of the main characters on the show, one will be fired, another will profess their love for a colleague, and three of them will look for love via a speed-dating service. Yes, the story lines are all over the place, but then again, so is House. --Jae-Ha Kim

    Product Description

    Get ready for a full dose of medical mysteries with 21 episodes of the riveting drama series, House. Hugh Laurie is joined by James Earl Jones (Star Wars), Laura Prepon (That '70s Show) and David Strathairn (The Bourne Ultimatum) in guest appearances as he returns to his Golden Globe® winning and Primetime Emmy® Award-nominated role as Dr. Gregory House. In this brilliant sixth season, House finds himself in an uncomfortable position— away from the examination room. As he works to regain his license and his life, his coworkers deal with the staff shakeups, moral dilemmas, and their own tricky relationships with House. And when House returns more obstinate than ever, Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital will never be the same again.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Season 6 - House Still Going Strong June 12, 2010
    Format:DVD
    **possible spoilers**
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Smartest Show on TV May 20, 2010
    Format:DVD
    Anyone who cares about great writing - hopefully, we've all gotten over the loss of Aaron Sorkin for The West Wing - well, okay, nobody's reached his level - but I continue to be fascinated by this character. Thanks to the writers for delivering intricate character pieces within the "okay, first scene, somebody's going to contract a mysterious illness right NOW' basic setup - this show could so easily have sunk to one-trick pony oblivion but for the writing and the amazing acting from Hugh Laurie. If you've ever seen him on a talk show and been surprised at his all-too-humble personality, you're not alone. He transforms himself into this tortured, brilliant, loving and lovable character. He's acerbic. Brilliant. Sarcastic. Brutally truthful. Hilarious (but you never laugh at this character, only with him). And yes, tortured - by the pain in his leg and, of course, his heart. As I look over the episodes from this season, I'm thinking of one more reason to give it my highest recommendation: if you or anyone you know ever goes into therapy, watch this season. I've never seen such a terrific depiction of what therapy is at its best. Ever. And I've had many therapists, two of whom had the ability to make me see my world from a different angle, with different eyes. That's a pitifully inadequate description, so buy this season of House and measure any therapy against what you see in this television show. It really is superlative TV.

    Once again we have a 5 star episode because Hugh Laurie is the focus of the show from the opening seconds to the closing. The other characters swirl around him, SUPPORTING him. That is the strength of this show and any deviations into making another character the central one immediately bring the star rating down. How relieved I was not to listen to Taub's love life or the unfolding of the Wison-Sam romance or the end of the Australian doc's marriage from the do-gooder doc--I am so glad she is gone.

    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.

    If you are interested in watching a character develop other than Hugh Laurie as House, stop right now. The round robin of supporting doctors continues and the only ones for sure who remain constants on the series are Wilson, Cuddy and Forman. These are the only characters you can count on seeing week in and week out. They are all dwarfed by House as the lead too. These other three do pretty well with him but still, if Hugh Laurie suddenly quit, I very much doubt you'd have a show called Forman or Wilson or Cuddy. The show would be DOA.

    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.

    What do you think of the Blu Ray cases?
    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.
