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

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."
Cameron - "Could pain medication cause an orgasm?"
House - "I wish."
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?"
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.
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.
