House This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

     Hugh Laurie stars as Dr. Gregory House, a maverick, anti-social doctor who specializes in infectious disease diagnosis and is not afraid to go over the line to solve every case that he is assigned. He is inconsiderate and doesn’t care less what people think about him. Regardless of whom he is talking to, he wastes no time cracking cheap but hilarious jokes. He is immature and ignorant, but without a doubt one of the best developed characters in television.

In each episode, Dr. House and his team of three highly skilled doctors are given mysterious cases with patients who could not be diagnosed by their primary doctors. Every time the patient’s life is on the line, and with one wrong move, the patient could die. On occasion, the team has to break into a patient’s house to search for the cause of the illness. Though House is disliked by most, he is respected because of his ability to save lives with few facts supporting his decisions.

All in all, I give this show a 10 out of 10. It’s funny, suspenseful, and even a little educational. What more could you ask from a show? Everyone I have seen this show with or recommended it to finds it enormously entertaining, funny, and flat-out brilliant.

“House” airs on FOX Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST. The first season is out on DVD and doing very well in stores. Catch up and tune in!

Btw, HOUSE MD is now on FOX @ 8 PM on Mondays. This is my only favorite show and every week I stop what I'm doing to watch it. I don't know what I'd do without it - when the season finished, I didn't watch TV until House came on again.

Your review describes the show perfectly, and it's my favorite too. Did you know that the character House was based on Sherlock Holmes? Incredible deduction skills, drug-addicted, aloof, arrogant, and largely friendless except for Dr. Watson (aka Wilson).
