Editorial Reviews

Go deeper into the medical mysteries of House, TV's most compelling new drama, as all 22 Season One episodes and exclusive bonus features come to DVD! Hugh Laurie stars as the brilliant, but sarcastic Dr. Gregory House, a maverick physician who is devoid of bedside manner. While his behavior can border on antisocial, Dr. House thrives on the challenge of solving the medical puzzles that other doctors give up on. Together with his hand-picked team of young medical experts, he'll do whatever it takes in the race against the clock to solve the case. Check out each gripping episode featuring some of TV's hottest guest stars, including Carmen Electra, Chi McBride, Scott Foley and Sela Ward. It's the intriguing new series TV Guide's Matt Roush hails as "... the uncommon cure for the common medical drama." Golden Globe winner Hugh Laurie is on call as sardonic Dr. Gregory House in Season Two of the smash-hit House, television's most intelligent and provocative drama. This 6-disc collection features all 24 innovative episodes, exclusive bonus materials and some of today's brightest guest stars, including Sela Ward, Ron Livingston, LL Cool J and Cynthia Nixon. Be a part of this medical mystery-solving team as House and his staff take on baffling cases in the gripping show critics are calling "both hilarious and heartbreaking; this could be network TV's best current series." - David Kronke, Los Angeles Daily News

I caught this show only sporadically during the 1st season, I did not quite get what was going on, but I knew I liked the grumpy doctor guy. My wife & I managed to stumble on a few more shows during year 2, and got hooked solid during the 3rd season. We are both huge Sherlock Holmes fans, and we could see the similiarities, but we did not realize they were so intentional until the address on the door "B" and front entry "221" were displayed in one of the final 3rd season shows. (I did not realize they were also shown as "221B" during the 2nd season). So House & Wilson are a reincarnated Holmes & Watson, the rest of the parallels you have to dig around for yourself (more fun) or look it up on the web.

We are watching these now as an addiction, every other night 2-3 shows at a time. We only have 8 shows of the 2nd season left to go, so we need to preorder season 3 soon. The writing & directing are absolutely solid, on every episode; well, actually there was one episode at the beginning of season 2 that was "off" chemistry wise, but every other episode has been a gem, with fast paced intelligent dialog, wit, sarcasm and emotional tension, despite the techno-medical-speak. I have not been this hooked on anything from television since...Star Trek?

Understand though, that these are not really medical stories, they are detective stories in a medical setting. And everybody lies.

Can't get enough of House. He is acerbic, charming, obscessive, brilliant and very attractive. The repartee with Cuddy, Wilson and his three assistants is perfect sitcom television. Five stars; it doesn't get better than this. The challenge after each show is what on earth was the diagnosis? No one cares because of the dynamics of the characters.

I enjoy House' logic in solving problems. The DVD's for the two seasons were well packaged. Two for one is a good deal. No problems were encountered.

House M.D. - Seasons 1 & 2
House is the perfect show for everyone. Yes, I said it. Everyone. There is drama, gore, intensity, comedy, and romance. If you are not a fan of those, then you hate everything. If you are looking to get into House, I suggest picking up this set. If you do not even know what House is, then this is the review for you.

In my recent review of House M.D. - Season 2, I described the stories main drift as this:

"House is a painkiller-addicted doctor who walks with a limp due to a muscle being removed in his leg. He is the best doctor in the hospital, but is often apathetic and hates patients. The storyline of a common episode will depict House and his team trying to find out what is wrong with an abnormal patient. They will come up with a solution and find out it is wrong. Then they continue to find solutions until they find the right one. Along the way, there is plenty of gore and snide remarks on behalf of House. Almost every episode has this underlying pattern."

House is developed in Season 1. Everything I described in the last quote is showed in Season 1. House's sense of humor will have you laughing, but will never ruin the moment. His attitude about his job makes him interesting. While he does not care about his patients, you find him eventually caring about things. It makes it seem like his heart is not as cold as originally thought. This makes him a dynamic character.

House has a team of doctors that help him solve these cases. Carmen, the over-caring woman. Foreman, the dynamic black man. Chase, the odd Aussie. Each one of them has a fair share of character build-up during Season 2. Foreman changes multiple times progressively making you care more about him.

I recently became a fan of House throughout the course of the 3rd season, and needed to catch up. The two-season set of DVD's was perfect for me. It was an excellent price compared to what the two would be individually in the store. I am only half way done but so far, Dr. House has lived up to my expectations. I recommend this show to anyone!

Well, what can I say about this DVD set.. You get the best of Dr. House in season 1 and 2 and you will enjoy every second of it. In top of all the episods from the season 1 and 2, you get alot of bonus stuff like bloopers and set tour etc. I really enjoyed the DVD collection and it is most deff a good buy...

His devil-me-care attitude and abrasive manner are hysterical. He says everything that a "wish I had said that" person wants to say. He's a genious in disquise.
BRILLIANT show. More doctors should be like him.

Only problem I had with these was with Season One. It was only a three disk set with shows on both sides, and for some reason, my DVD player had a difficult time recognizing "Side B". It kept telling me there was no playable disk in the player, so I had to keep trying over and over until finally it would play. (Season Two is six separate disks so maybe they figured that problem out after enough people complained??) It was annoying because the show itself ROCKS. Other than that, everything was fine.

Washed out colors in DVD transfer?
The pilot episode is the only episode that is shown in those strange orange colors...Its even shown on television like that. I'm not sure why but don't worry, nothing is wrong with you television or cables. That's just how that ONE episode looks.
