From Fox's website:

HOUSE, an innovative take on the medical drama, is a series in which the villain is a medical malady and the hero is an irreverent, controversial doctor who trusts no one, least of all his patients.

HOUSE has been honored with four Emmy Awards, including an award for creator and executive producer David Shore (Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series). The series has been honored with 23 Emmy Award nominations, including four for Outstanding Drama Series and five for Hugh Laurie (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series). The series received the 2006 Humanitas Prize for the episode "Three Stories" and four Humanitas finalist honors, one each for the 2009 episode "Unfaithful," the 2007 episode "House vs. God" and the 2005 episodes "Everybody Lies" and "Damned If You Do."

Additionally, HOUSE received two Golden Globe Awards for Laurie (Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series) and two Screen Actors Guild Awards for Laurie (Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series) as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination (Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series); three Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Television Series, Drama; three NAACP Image Award nominations for Outstanding Drama Series; and two NAACP Image Awards for Omar Epps (Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series).

The show has also been honored by the American Film Institute as one of the TV Programs of the Year, and it received a Peabody Award for Best of Electronic Media, as well as three consecutive People's Choice Awards for Favorite TV Drama, two People's Choice Awards for Laurie and two Writers Guild Awards for Episodic Drama ("Broken" and "Autopsy").

DR. GREGORY HOUSE (Laurie), devoid of bedside manner and dealing with his own constant physical pain, uses a cane that punctuates his acerbic, brutally honest demeanor. His behavior often borders on antisocial, but House is a brilliant diagnostician whose unconventional thinking and flawless instincts afford him a great deal of respect. An infectious disease specialist, he thrives on the challenge of solving medical puzzles in order to save lives.

House shepherds an elite team of experts who help him unravel diagnostic mysteries, including plastic surgeon DR. CHRIS TAUB (Peter Jacobson), enigmatic DR. REMY HADLEY/THIRTEEN (Olivia Wilde) and surgeon DR. ROBERT CHASE (Jesse Spencer). He has a confidant and good friend in oncology specialist DR. JAMES WILSON (Robert Sean Leonard), and maintains a somewhat volatile and undefined relationship with DR. LISA CUDDY (Lisa Edelstein), the Dean of Medicine and hospital administrator. Though the two are in constant conflict over House's duties and unconventional behavior, even she would admit that his brilliance is worth the trouble. Neurologist DR. ERIC FOREMAN (Omar Epps) serves as Cuddy's eyes and ears on House's team.

In the Season Six finale, House, driven by the loss of a patient he treated at an accident site and confronted with the unexpected news that Cuddy was now engaged, spiraled into despair and considered treating his mental and emotional anguish with Vicodin, potentially prompting the cycle of his dependency and addiction all over again. But in a surprising turn, Cuddy revealed that she called off her engagement and admitted to House she loves him, despite wishing she didn't. Also, Thirteen submitted her leave of absence from the hospital, prompting questions about the status of her health.

As Season Seven begins, House and Cuddy attempt to make a real relationship work and face the question as to whether their new relationship will affect their ability to diagnose patients.

HOUSE is from Heel and Toe Films, Shore Z Productions and Bad Hat Harry Productions in association with Universal Media Studios. Katie Jacobs, David Shore, Paul Attanasio, Bryan Singer, Russel Friend, Garrett Lerner, Thomas L. Moran, Greg Yaitanes and Hugh Laurie are executive producers.

House...The game is afoot!
The televisions show house is a modern adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  Gregory House is the Sherlock Holmes character, who uses his genious level knowledge of all things medical and deductive reasoning to solve various "cases" presented in each episode.      Sherlock Holmes had an addiction to Cocaine and Morphine.  House is addicted to Vicodan and other painkillers.  Sherlock had his foil in Dr. John H. Watson, …

 What gives a show longevity in my opinion is how well it can hold up with each new season and what it does to keep it's basic premise and formula from getting too stale. While I love House to death, it wasn't without it's problems in seasons three through five. The formula almost became, in the words of a friend, "a parody of itself." Couldn't have agreed more. What surprised me the most about this most recent season, however, is that the makers decided to go places with the characters …

I admit I said I was getting tired of House's attitude on previous seasons, and last year I missed all of the episodes, but now I am getting too curious as to what I have missed! LOL I think that maybe after watching so many reruns of House, I got tired of it. I intend to start watching it again this season, and just skip all the reruns and House marathons! Thank you guys for making me interested in the show again!!

I can't help feeling it was better in the earlier series--or even it was fantastic in the earlier series. I loved the way each episode was like a well structured story in itself.

   I just finally caught up on House and watched the finale on Hulu last night. I felt as if it was just another episode, finales usually stand out and apart, bu this was a little disappointing. I guess they writers considered the big crane crash a dramatic end, but all I have to say is if Cuddy and House did not kiss it would not have been anything special.      I acknowledge that there was also his breakdown about his leg, but honestly, same old stuff, we all know …

I used to watch House faithfully, as I really enjoyed his character and smart-ass remarks, but have since lost my interest - it seems his character was getting more unrealistic as time went on; he has become too self-centered and selfish and the things he gets by with as a Doctor are just not feasible; working in a hospital for years myself, no doctor would be able to pull off what he does without getting canned. House's attitude just got old really quick for me.

Good show but I got tired of it. Didn't watch it last year.
Quick Tip by . August 09, 2010
Formulaic but enjoyable. I'm not satisfied with only subtext fanservice and innuendo.
Quick Tip by . August 04, 2010
Awesome show, it covers so many different aspects of life besides just the hospital setting. The character House is amazing.
