Two-time Golden Globe Winner and Primetime Emmy Award nominee Hugh Laurie is back making "House" calls in all 24 engaging episodes of this hit medical series! Dr. Gregory House (Laurie) still has the most unapologetically prickly bedside manner ever, but his genius for solving medical mysteries other practitioners can't has earned him the respect of his team. In this provocative and compelling season, House's unpredictable cases - from killer germs to killer secrets - strain his already tenuous relationship with his co-workers and put his own health at risk. Take the doctor's orders: make House: Season Three a habit!
The cantankerous and brilliant Dr. House (Golden Globe winner Hugh Laurie) is back for a third season of the hit drama House, which picks up with his being shot at the end of season two and ends with his staff dramatically refusing to put up with his oddball (and borderline abusive) demands. Each of the 24 episodes, which aired on FOX from 2006 to 2007, is included in this 5-disc set. Fans of the drama will be happy to hear that the formula remains the same: Each show begins with a medical dilemma that's so severe and life-threatening that only Dr. House can diagnose and fix the problem, even if it goes against conventional medical rules. His put-upon boss Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) is back, as are his young charges Foreman (Omar Epps), Cameron (Jennifer Morrison), and Chase (Jesse Spencer). Oncologist Wilson (Tony winner Robert Sean Leonard), who is House's best friend by default, also returns to support (and infuriate) the cranky doctor. Speaking of cranky, House's difficult nature proves to bite him in the rear. In a six-episode arc, the Vicodin-popping House meets his match after he antagonizes the wrong patient, police officer Michael Twitter (David Morse, who played a compassionate physician on St. Elsewhere). Hell hath no fury like a patient poked and prodded like a guinea pig, and Twitter makes it his business to make House's life miserable. But since the show is called House, viewers are safe in assuming that House will not be rotting his life away in a jail cell. After all, the excitement of the show is driven by his unorthodox treatment of patients. As Cuddy succinctly points out, "You just keep on going until you come up with something so insane it's usually right." Look for a slew of excellent guest stars (rocker Dave Matthews, Charles S. Dutton, Piper Perabo, John Larroquette) to help stir things up. The episodes are as compelling as ever, focusing on a morbidly obese patient in denial, an autistic child, and a comatose man that House insists on "waking" up. The bonus materials include Morrison and Edelstein doing scenes in Valley Girl-speak and a featurette on Laurie's all-star charity group called Band from TV (Laurie plays piano). --Jae-Ha Kim

The formula is pretty well set in stone by now, any victim falling into the clutches of Greg and his team is worse off than anyone suspected, and is bound to get MUCH worse before, possibly, getting better.
I'm three episodes into the fourth season, and believe there must have been a change in writers, as the newest batch of shows seems to me to have lost or misplaced many of the qualities of character development which compelled me to buy the full first three years of the series.
I recommend this third year season to those who enjoyed the first two years. Whether the fourth year will meet the same high standards of those previous is yet to be seen. Literally.
The dialog is engaging and intelligent and sometimes seems dry. Yet this episode as a whole is one of the most emotionally moving episodes in the entire series. While many ideas are discussed perhaps the most interesting is the way the story deals with issues around "trust". Why do we trust? Who do we trust when we need - really need - to figure out what's true? This story doesn't pretend to answer these questions (or any questions) for everyone. One's left with the sense that the answer may be different for each of us at different times in our lives.
Actually the title sums the episode up perfectly. If life is just a series of rooms then this is just "One Day, One Room."
