I refused to watch this show for the longest time, as it was one of those shows that my friends' girlfriends watched, and I assumed it was some sort of Desperate Housewives/Gilmore Girls/Grey's Anatomy kind of program. Than I actually watched it. I'm such a fool sometimes.

You could not have been more wrong.

This is possibly the only show about doctors worth watching in the world.

No, yeah I think that's accurate.

I did exactly the same thing - my wife was constantly telling me it was great, but I don't believe anything out of the mouth of a woman. After seeing it myself I realized she was right for once, stopped hitting her as much as a way of saying thanks.

Xenocide
Cue the same piece of music they use for fucking everything (except the 70's rock tune which accompanies the montage at the end of the episode.)
FABIO
Hey now!

There's the "wacky moment" tune AND the "that off-hand remark just gave me the final clue to solve the case!" tune.

Riskbreaker
Not a fan, it has it's moments, but it's tediously repetitive. Everyone has the most rare diseases ever known to man, House always gets the right treatment, House always mocks everyone without consequences because he's "cool" bitter, acid, sarcastic and what not.

That said, the show has some very fapable females.
joelkazoo
Oooh, yeah! I really wanna bang Cuddy the most. Something about smart, sexy, Jewish women just makes me melt.

FABIO
And Columbo is asking asking just one more question! Boring!

Riskbreaker
Also, every other character except House is either one of his goons or just someone contradicting him, just to see said character thanking him at the end of the episode for saving the day. Yawn*

Most mystery drama shows have that same formula but this is the best dressing for that formula that I've seen.

Riskbreaker
And yes, i would hit Cuddy HARD.

Syd Midnight
Every other character besides House is window dressing.

has anyone told you you smell wonderfully like albuterol?

Real doctors are just like this, except their attitude and self confidence often leads to patients dying.

If you've watched season one, you've watched all the subsequent seasons.

Patient has strange symptoms the doctors think is one thing but is actually something else. House does something unconventional while investigating and everyone is pissed but impressed. They seem to have it figured out but OH NO A NEW AND DISTURBING SYMPTOM.

After the scene where the medical research department of the show validate their existence by having the doctors toss around disease names while the other doctors shoot them down because of necessary symptoms the patient doesn't have, one of the following happens:
1. House saves the day with his magical powers.
2. The doctors save the day with only the passive guidance of House.
3. The patient dies.
No matter the conclusion, the patient is usually at fault.

In addition to this, add one or more of the following variables:
1. House isn't available.
2. House is pissed.
3. House is barely helping and therefore frustrating the other doctors.
4. In-fighting between the doctors.
5. Someone related to the patient (family, friend, or spouse) is blocking progress.

Ultimately, personal truths are revealed, and House comes off as sagacious yet vulnerable in the closing scene.

Apparently the new season has broken from that formula, but, it's too many seasons in for me to wade through the rest to pick up on the story.

Stars for you.

I can't get into the show for the reasons you just listed. I don't think it's for me. Power to anyone here who enjoys it.

"House" follows the formula of the Book of Exodus: the Israelites (assistant doctors) moan about a problem, Yahweh (House) tells them to make some sort of sacrifice (run unusual tests), the Israelites do not listen and wander helplessly until they eventually decide to listen, and then good fortune finally comes their way.

This even extends into the season where a police detective is trying to take House down and he makes a point of making the assistant doctors' lives miserable. I call him "Pharaoh" and ultimately he too falls before the power of House.

citrusmirakel
I was able to deal with the formula listed above, but then around season 3 or so, they added these huge soap opera arcs about the supporting characters being sad because someone was dead.

Riskbreaker
I can't get into any tv show these days. I stopped watching tv ever since the Simpsons and the X-files started to suck.

FABIO
Jesus christ. Has anyone here even watched TV before?

kennydra
This show is only good in small doses like this. House blows.
Desidiosus
You, sir, have been suffused with excrement.

However, I will agree in that the show wouldn't work at all without Hugh Laurie.
