I have throughly enjoyed this set. The discs were all there when I opened the set (you'd be surprized how often a disc is missing or duplicated leaving the set incomplete) and there was a very brief synopsis of each episode within the DVD case.
The subtitles were in English and Spanish and were "almost" verbatim to the dialog unlike some subtitles that I have experienced where the subtitle replaces whole phrases and words and really has nothing to do with what the actor had just said.
Disc one of each Season also included "Special Features" for which I can't tell you what the features covered as I don't watch them. Just wanted to mention that they exist.
Although there was a small pamphlet contained in the set it was not too burdensome to the reader. One part, "House-isms," was very funny and I had heard them used, some of them many, many times, throughout the series. The main characters (House, Cuddy & Wilson) comment on their characters character and how they interact with each other. There is also a Season & Episode guide to help you find a special episode without having to open and search each DVD case. There is a section that addresses the ideas of how House was developed as well as how the characters were developed. There are also some quotes, from the famous and not-so-famous.Read more ›
There are a couple of nit-picks though. There is no episode guide in this set, even the blu-rays themselves don't have episode names when you're playing the discs, only numbers. So you'll need to know your House episodes when looking for a specific episode. The special features are what you'll find on the individual DVD releases, nothing new here.
Each individual season is in it's own blu-ray case stacked inside the box, the only gripe I've got is that the blu-ray cases are kinda hard to close. They're built exactly like those older plastic VHS cases. You have to pull the cover of the case and pinch the sides to close it, kinda like a pizza box. It's an odd choice to go back to. It's by no means a big deal, just worth noting.
Also, this release does not feature the Teardrop by Massive Attack theme song, only the same theme song you'll hear on the Netflix releases.
Overall - I'm happy to actually have this entire collection in High Definition on a physical media. I've watched this show a dozen times and will probably watch it a few dozen more.
Medical mystery brings with it a stiff consortium of medical oddities. Often, issues that would take top ranking on other medical shows are just part of the passing scene: ectopic pregnancy, Cushing's Syndrome, hemispheric displacement (half of the brain shutting down, or threatening to) and Legionnaire's Disease are among the maladies that have to be dealt with en route to what's REALLY threatening the suffering patient. HOUSE, M.D.'s writers and producers confess that they and their advisors scour medical literature looking for that true one-in-a-million malady ("If it has happened once, that's validation enough," says one producer, "If it has happened three times in all the literature that may be too much.Read more ›

|Wait for possibly lower price? and packaging question.||
I got the box set for 80 dollars when it was on sale. I dont think it will go much lower since the sets are limited in number, but you can wait and see. More than likely retailers like Amazon will sell out of their supply and you will have to purchase from other sellers that will keep the price... Read More

|S1 - Dual Sided?||
I did some small research. Purchasing the seasons separately [with Season 1 on single sided discs] yields a total of 42 discs -- this complete set has 41. I'm thinking that Season 1 in this set is NOT DOUBLE SIDED. If anyone has in fact bought this set, please let us know.

because someone is a greedy moron. if the series is sold out, and you're really jonesing for your fix of whatever show it is, im sure it will go down in price, or amazon will get it soon. Also theres amazon instant video. Just bought season 8 of house on there and never looking back. Great deal.
