I've watched a couple. It was definitely edgier than any other med show I'd seen (and I have seen plenty). The show doesn't synch with my schedule, so i never really got into it; I don't have an real empathy for the characters. But I could.

 

I'll probably catch up on it when it goes into syndication.

It's typical - if you like the genre, you'll like House. IMO there's nothing outstanding about it other than how big of an a-hole House is, and how far-fetched and improbable the story lines are...

 

I wouldn't recommend it unless you're trying to waste an hour of your life....in which case I still wouldn't recommend it...:p

It's already in syndication, on A&E, I think. That's where I usually watch in (not the current year's episodes, but I don't really care).

 

Excellent show.

I think Hugh Laurie cops an outstanding American accent.

 

It's kind of a shock to watch interviews with him after watching the show. I don't think I've ever heard any brit accent creeping into his character's voice, unless it's intentionally being used to mock someone else. :)

After a while it gets pretty formulaic. Bizarre malady, red herrings, they think it's cured but House knows better, sudden worsening to near death, House figures it out and saves the patient.

 

I like it, and watch it whenever I can catch a new one. House is smart and mean, with an evil, tasteless sense of humor. I watch it for the abuse he dishes out. It was great for a while when he had a nemesis, a cop as smart and ruthless as House but without the tiny tender spot you know House is hiding.

At the very end of that series, turned out the cop had one too, which is what made him such a bastard, just like House.

Gaah! I must have missed that! I realized I couldn't remember how that storyline played out, but thought it was just senility setting in.

Well, that was my interpretation at least, others may not agree. I didn't really follow the whole sequence of episodes, but I did watch what I took to be the resolution of that storyline not too long ago.
