    3.0 out of 5 stars Not a good purchase for several reasons September 26, 2009
    First, House is still in production for at least this current sixth season, so when the series does end you can probably expect a "Complete Series" set with extras not in the individual five season sets that are simply being bundled together here.

    Second, buying separately is a better deal. Seasons one through four are easily found for around twenty dollars a season and season five for a little more than that if you are willing to shop around.

    It is true that the original Season One was on dual sided discs, but season one is being reissued next month on single-sided discs, so you can easily escape that problem. I was burned by the original dual-sided season one set, so I can advise you avoid it.

    I obtain my three star rating as follows:
    House as a series is thoroughly entertaining. I could watch Dr. Greg House watch paint dry and feel like it was time well spent, so I give the first five seasons 5/5 stars.
    This is not a good deal any way you look at it - as a completist or a bargain hunter, so for value I give it 1/5 stars.
    Averaging the two scores together I give this set 3/5 stars.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Let the Buyer Beware December 28, 2009
    I should say that I bought the boxed set for seasons 1-4 and I bought season five separately, but if the producer is the same for this newest box set, you'd be better off buying the set at a store with a generous return policy.

    When I got my set, I was thrilled. Then, as I played through each season, I started to see skipped scenes and freezing and episodes starting in the middle instead of at the beginning. In two cases, I didn't get to see the resolution of the cases at all.

    Because it takes so long to watch all the episodes, by the time I realized there was a problem it was too late to return the set. I notice that the set I bought is no longer being produced; I assume that the manufactor is simply making seasons 1-5 instead.

    To pay $100.00 for defective disks is unconscionable. I love the show but certainly wouldn't recommend this set to anyone.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Save yourself some money.... September 11, 2009
    By Aekero
    ..and buy the seasons seperately. The seasons all added up are currently $15 less than this boxed set, and this set makes no mention of any special features that buying them seperately doesn't include.

    Soooo, unless you just have to have a boxed set (which the 6th season won't fit in), I'd just buy them by themselves. (obviously all at once else shipping makes the savings moot)

    4.0 out of 5 stars House order on Amazon February 7, 2010
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I purchased the House series as a Christmas gift for someone that absolutley loves the show. The show itself is great, no problems there.

    When we received the package, I noticed right away that instead of getting the nice white box that claimed to store all of the series, we received each season seperate without the white box. We decided to just deal with it because it's not really about the box, but it was a little frustrating because I thought that was what I was getting!

    Also, in a few of the sets, the discs were sliding around because the prongs that hold them in place had broken.

    I've decided that I probably won't purchased DVD's through the site anymore because you never know what you are really getting and it could end up damaged in shipping. I'd rather pick it out myself at the store.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Love the show, but should've waited to buy a set January 9, 2010
    By Ronnie
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I bought my boxed set here on amazon, but now I am worried it may not be legit.
    On the packaging there are multiple spelling errors, which may be symptomatic of simple misreads/typos on a "first production," yet they occur rather frequently. Since I have season 3 in front of me, I'll use some examples from that one:
    Description for Disc one's "Informed Consent" reads "House and his team fine themselves at odds..." instead of "find." Disc 3's "Words and Deeds" reads " order to acoid jail..." instead of "avoid."

    I wouldn't usually be concerned about typos, but when they occur this frequently, and I spent practically the msrp, I would hope that it wasn't bootlegged.
    Nonetheless, the show itself is very entertaining, but perhaps I should have waited until season 6 was also released on DVD, thus purchasing a complete series...

    3.0 out of 5 stars good scripts shame about the research October 24, 2010
    By NB
    Never a Hugh Laurie fan, I was surprised at how brilliant he is in this series. I'm now a convert. The scripts - apart from occasional exceptions - are slick and smart and the interactions between cast / characters compelling and absorbing. Why only 3 stars? The research is diabolical. Considering that this is a series about a department specialising in diagnostic medicine, I can't understand why the producers do not employ an advisor on the subject. The mistakes are terrible and would make even a student radiographic technician laugh. When will the designers put the chest x-ray (opening titles) the right way round (traditionally x-rays are viewed right to left)? House points at a neck image and diagnoses a cauda equina lesion (the cauda equina is at the bottom of the back). We're constantly told that MR will pull out plates/screws from bones (NO!!) House tells staff not to switch on the magnet (the magent is on all the time!) MRIs are performed without body coils. The team often suggest pathologies - and occasionally go on to test for them - which would have already been outuled by pevious examinations. I could go on and on. Bearing in mind the amount of cash plowed into House, it is ridculous that no diagnostic advice has been taken on basic proceduress. Damn it, I'd do it for free!

    Fantastic collection if you enjoy the series. If you want to understand the man, there are shows that you just cannot miss. He is much more than an arrogant son of a gun. A+++

    Season 1 in this box
    If you add up all the discs from the individual box sets it comes out to 23 and this complete 1 - 5 box set has 26 discs. I would guess that the extra 3 are from the single sided discs of season 1, since it doesnt mention that there are any extras of buy this set.

    Ok, I just received my box set... Read More

    I don't understand...
    I'm guessing that it's because it's a boxed set. People will pay more for the different look, or maybe buy this to replace their individual sets, because the boxed set is cooler on their dvd shelves. (Maybe?)
