Recently on a recommendation by someone else I finnaly got around to watching this House M.D. season one episode one DVD I got from best buy over a year ago.
Man I am hooked, its such a great show! After watching the first episode I acquired the rest of season one, and polished that off in like 3 days. Its so addictive.
Synopsis from TV.com:
Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) is devoid of bedside manner and wouldn’t even talk to his patients if he could get away with it. Dealing with his own constant physical pain, he uses a cane that seems to punctuate his acerbic, brutally honest demeanor. While his behavior can border on antisocial, House is a maverick physician whose unconventional thinking and flawless instincts have afforded him a great deal of respect. An infectious disease specialist, he’s a brilliant diagnostician who loves the challenges of the medical puzzles he must solve in order to save lives.
The show is great, though sometimes quite unnerving on how many nasty things there are in the world that could kill usâ€¦
This quote is great:
Dr. House: You have a parasite.
Jill: Like a tapeworm or something?…Can you do anything about it?
Dr. House: Only for about a month or so. After that it becomes illegal to remove, except in a couple of states.
Dr. House: Don’t worry. Many women learn to embrace this parasite. They name it, dress it up in tiny clothes, arrange playdates with other parasites… (he shows her the ultrasound) It has your eyes.
