Product Description

Golden Globe winner Hugh Laurie is on call as sardonic Dr. Gregory House in Season Two of the smash-hit House, television's most intelligent and provocative drama. This 6-disc collection features all 24 innovative episodes, exclusive bonus materials and some of today's brightest guest stars, including Sela Ward, Ron Livingston, LL Cool J and Cynthia Nixon. Be a part of this medical mystery-solving team as House and his staff take on baffling cases in the gripping show critics are calling "both hilarious and heartbreaking; this could be network TV's best current series." - David Kronke, Los Angeles Daily News


The overall strength of the second season of House, M.D. proves that its first-year success wasn't a fluke. This season starts with Dr. House (Golden Globe winner Hugh Laurie) pursuing his ex-wife Stacy (Sela Ward) and ending with a tragedy that could potentially be deadly for himself and two colleagues. The premise of each show follows a set routine--a patient is brought in with unusual symptoms; House challenges his trio of underlings to diagnose the problem; they treat the patient, usually incorrectly the first few tries; and then at the very last minute--through a revelation that often has little to do with the patient--House figures out what's wrong and saves the day. It would be easy for this set up to grow old fast. But because of the smart writing, nuanced acting, and believability of the characters (who're often dealing with unbelievable scenarios), the formula works on each of the 24 episodes that aired on Fox during the 2005-2006 season. Viewers have been conditioned by the Marcus Welbys of the TV world to think of doctors as saviors. Even on ER, the most narcissistic physician was selfless at heart. But House is a different breed. When he's at an off-track betting parlor and a woman collapses, he doesn't miss a beat. Still eying his race on television, he asks, "Is anybody here a doctor?" He'll mock a sick patient's complaints with a sarcastic, "Boo hoo!" And, if there happens to be a dead body around, he has no qualms about shooting it if he believes that could help diagnose another gun-shot victim.

Not that he's any more reasonable or compassionate to his boss Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), his oncologist best friend Wilson (Tony winner Robert Sean Leonard), or his young charges Foreman (Omar Epps), Cameron (Jennifer Morrison), and Chase (Jesse Spencer). He instructs his doctors to break into patients' homes as if they're cat burglars. He does not know the meaning of the phrase "politically correct." But because he spits out insults (as if he has a mild case of Tourette's) equally to both his patients and colleagues, the latter never flinch at his constant stream of inappropriateness. When his three young doctors storm into his office to report the declining condition of a patient by blurting out, "We have rectal bleeding," House says, "What? All three of you?" To sensitive Wilson, who is trying to get some work done without being interrupted, House says, "I know you're in there. I can hear you caring." And when Foreman's father says, "My son says you're a manipulative bastard," House replies, "It's a pet name. I call him Dr. Bling." Of course House actually does care about his patients, but he views a good bedside manner as the luxury of a doctor who has a healthy patient. But dying patients with seemingly incurable diseases need something more. They need House. --Jae-Ha Kim

    While some shows experience a "sophomore slump" of sorts, this was certainly not the case with "House" which picked up right where it left off with more great stories and more interesting cases. Once again, Hugh Laurie stars as the mysterious and brilliant Dr. House. Also back are his crack team of assistants Drs. Allison Cameron (Jennifer Morrison), Eric Foreman (Omar Epps), and Robert Chase (Jesse Spencer), his loyal friend Dr. James Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard), and his regularly exasperated boss Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein).

    In season 2, the show broke the mold a little bit and focused a little more on the backgrounds of the characters to give us a better idea of who they are and how they came to be working at the hospital. Especially interesting was the relationship between Dr. House and his former girlfriend Stacy Warner (Sela Ward). This storyline gave viewers a better idea of who House is and how he came to be the way that he is.

    Standout episodes from this season include "Acceptance" (about a death row inmate), "Skin Deep" (about a beauty queen with a bizarre ailment), "Failure to Communicate" (about a journalist who can't talk), "Euporia" (about a sick cop), and "No Reason" (abot what happens after House gets shot).

    And of course, House is back with some more zingers:

    Jack: "I don't want to hear semantics."

    House: "You anti-semantic bastard."

    - No Reason

    "Why do you wanna sleep on a couch anyway? You got money. At least until the divorce is finalized."

    - Clueless

    Cameron - "Could pain medication cause an orgasm?"

    House - "I wish."

    - Distractions

    Wilson - "Did you know your phone is dead? Do you ever recharge the batteries?"

    House - "They recharge? I just keep buying new phones."

    - Failure to Communicate

    "Is it still illegal to perform an autopsy on a living person?"

    - Autopsy

    I love watching House. Not only is Hugh Laurie great in this, but the whole cast and the story lines make for entertaining television. This is great and he should definately win the Emmy this year. He really deserves it.

    Here are some of my favourite episodes in this season. Autopsy featured a brave and mature little 9 year old girl with cancer. Daddy's Boy, showed a student with weird electrical shocks that they try to figure out, and House's parents come to visit him. And finally, I really loved Failure To Communicate where he and Stacey Warner are stuck at an airport waiting for a flight where they begin to rekindle their deminished romance.

    Hugh Laurie really is very talented. Not only does he use an American accent with perfection, but his timing and delivery are brilliant and he's very believable. It's a great show and it's smart and enjoyable. I highly recommend it.

    After having seen Hugh Laurie in shows such as Black Adder (in which is absolutely hysterical) and movies (Sense and Sensibility and Peter's Friends), anything he is in had to be terrific. So when the trailers for the first season started playing and Hugh Laurie was going to star in it, I knew I had to watch it. I wasn't disappointed and couldn't wait for Season 2 to start this past January. I am glad they will be starting Season 3 on September 5th rather than mid season. Season 2 picked up the story line following the relationship between House and the return of Stacy that was the bombshell of Season 1. I was glad there was resolution of sorts, and was also glad it happened early in the season. House has to be House without distractions; it is what makes us love him. There is a reason why House scored consistantly in the Nielsen top 10 this past season; it is because it is a terrific show that doesn't have to constantly show gore to get the point across. All the characters are intertwined and the dynamics of their relationships and how they relate to each other and their patients is what carries the show's points across. Anyone who likes a show that is fast paced and intellectually sound should watch this show and own it on DVD so it can be enjoyed over and over.

    Okay, that obviously doesn't refer to the demeanour of the central character, but this is just the best thing on TV. I don't really care how medically accurate it is, or if any hospital on the planet ever has so many serious cases time and again, or even if a doctor with such extensive knowledge has ever, will ever, or even could ever really exist. All I care about is the incredible dynamics created between the central players. As for the dialogue? Man, the dialogue is beyond equal on TV today. House has throwaway lines that other shows would kill for, but there are just so many, I'm sure most viewers simply don't realise how clever it is. It really is one of the funniest shows on TV, even though it's not a comedy.

    If you like watching specialists solving mysteries, you must see this. If you want an idea of what it's like, try thinking of Columbo meets Qunicy meets CSI - though House surpasses all of them.

    Hugh Laurie and the script writers have done such an incredible job bringing House to life. God knows how the writers come up with all the possible diseases and cures, but it never seems a stretch to go with them. And all the while, House is there to deliver acidic lines to tantalize the viewer and keep the show crackling along.

    House is a rare treat. Get it. Savour it. Love it.
