The only issues are that you have to select your language every time (may just be my old blu-ray player) out of about 10 languages (Japanese is at the top and English is the second). There are absolutely no lists of all the episodes on the boxes nor on the menus - they are all just numbers (see picture included for picture of the menu) - so you will have to look them up or print off a list from Wikipedia or something if you really want the list of episode names. The menu is very simple and has no words, but rather just symbols. The book icon is the episode list. (see menu picture)
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.
Maybe it sounds silly, but I've always felt that although the British Invasion in rock got a lot of us imitating some of the stars' accents, none of us could have gone over there and fooled real Brits. So I figured it was the same in the other direction, so I was surprised when I saw Hugh Laurie on a talk show and, holy cow, he's a Brit. Because he does an American accent so well. The last English actor I saw do that was Jane Seymour on "Dr. Quinn", and she came across as a Bostonian.
Anyway, "Anonymous" did warn us that a guide to episode titles is not provided. I guess that depends on which version you get. These reviews seem to be a combination of reviews from both versions. The one I'm holding is the version Universal put out in 2012, ASIN # B008P9M614. That's the one with a lot of pictures on the box as I mention above. The one "Anonymous" had grief with must be the other one with a lot of white space on the box. You get a pretty good list of which episode is on which disk on the inner cover--front and rear--of each season box. You just have to take out the disc that blocks the view. Either that or temporarily slip out the paper cover insert. But there's no list on the actual discs themselves. AND there's that booklet that has a list, but no mention of which disc has which episode--just which season it's in.
Lastly, I purchased my set from megahitrecords, who have 100% positive reviews. If you have a Blu Ray player, don't waste your money on the DVD set. When for approximately the same price, you can own the 1080p Blu Ray set. Which looks amazing on my 55" 1080p tv. Hope this helps.
