As for content -
Well, watch an episode or two before you buy the series. We absolutely love it, but some folks may be put off by some of the more graphic scenes. We find House to be a fantastic mixture of science, medicine, drama, romance and comedy. The special effects, particularly when they are portraying the interior of a patients body to show the problem or the effects of a treatment, are absolutely great. Watch this series, and you will be very entertained - and you will also learn something!
When we received the package, I noticed right away that instead of getting the nice white box that claimed to store all of the series, we received each season seperate without the white box. We decided to just deal with it because it's not really about the box, but it was a little frustrating because I thought that was what I was getting!
Also, in a few of the sets, the discs were sliding around because the prongs that hold them in place had broken.
I've decided that I probably won't purchased DVD's through the site anymore because you never know what you are really getting and it could end up damaged in shipping. I'd rather pick it out myself at the store.
On the packaging there are multiple spelling errors, which may be symptomatic of simple misreads/typos on a "first production," yet they occur rather frequently. Since I have season 3 in front of me, I'll use some examples from that one:
Description for Disc one's "Informed Consent" reads "House and his team fine themselves at odds..." instead of "find." Disc 3's "Words and Deeds" reads "...in order to acoid jail..." instead of "avoid."
I wouldn't usually be concerned about typos, but when they occur this frequently, and I spent practically the msrp, I would hope that it wasn't bootlegged.
Nonetheless, the show itself is very entertaining, but perhaps I should have waited until season 6 was also released on DVD, thus purchasing a complete series...
