House MD season five is not like seasons 1-3. The last two seasons have been different; a new cast has come into the fold, and Cameron and Chase have become guest stars at best. But, the show is called House, and despite what others will say, this is one of the best (if not the best) seasons of House. Sure, it has had a few relationships. But, why wouldn't it? This show is not just starting. It's been on for five seasons. It's been known from the very beginning that House and Cuddy have chemistry, and finally they are seeing where it leads. I say finally because it was inevitable.
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.

I have been watching the series for 6 months on USA channel. Although, as a physician, I know that the presentation is totally ficticious from a real medical standpoint, this series is very entertaining. It is impossible for someone to destroy their liver in two hours, and to need (and receive) a heart transplant within one day. It is impossible for a physician to treat a patient with whole body radiation without knowing a real diagnosis. However, this series presents medical syndromes, and other very rare disease possibilities, causing even the most astute phyisician to do a double take as to what is involved with the syndrome they present. This is a seriously sensationalistic medical presentation, but still very entertaining...even to the most discerning of physicians. Please do not take the sense of urgency seriously. However, understand that this is a good emotional representation of what physicians go through in trying to make a serious diagnosis, and a diagnosis in difficult diseases can be extremely difficult. It is obvious that "House" is a modern day version of Arthur Conan Doyle's "Sherlock Holmes", but "Sherlock Holmes" was patterned after Dr. Joseph Bell, a famous physician in Europe in the time of Doyle.

"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.

Hugh Laurie and company returned for a fifth season of "House", the medical mystery series about that cranky doctor and his medical colleagues. And while season five of "House" was a very good one, I felt it wasn't as good as the previous four seasons.

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.
