House Fans Beware,
This review is from: House, M.D.: Season 4 (DVD)
I was so excited when the forth season of House M.D. became available. My husband and I are huge House fans. I was somewhat shocked when I got season four to find that it only had sixteen episodes. I felt somewhat cheated. Then watching it I felt that the first five or six episodes, while okay, seemed more like some reality TV show where House is eliminating his choices for his team down to three. I became more interested in who was going to be fired next than House's brilliant diagnosis' and bizarre treatments. Once House picks his team, the shows begin to feel more like those of season's one thru three. But then the two part season finale hits kind of out of place with the rest of the season. I felt like I had skipped a couple of episodes. I don't want to spoil the season for anyone who hasn't seen it, but I will say that the finale was completely unexpected. True House fans might be somewhat dissapointed as I was, but true fans will still buy it and watch it.

Please recall that this was the season that was affected by the writers' strike. That is the reason for the low number of episodes and that feeling we all got of having missed something. I agree that this season was a bit of a departure from the 'norm', but it is still good and I highly recommend it. I look forward to seeing season 5 as we delve more closely into the new characters and see the reactions of or favorites to surprises last season.
