Hugh Laurie:A Real American Doctor FROM AMERICA (House M.D.)

This wins so much. So, so much.

Out of interest, how many American fans of House were surprised to find out he was English?

Yeah, it is win. I've been watching him since he had a cameo on The Young Ones before I was born. There was a show made of win.

I like House, although I only have season 1 and 2 on my computer =/ I need to get more.

My boyfriend always teases me when I watch it and goes "oooh, they didn't figure it out! They're wrong! Know how I know that? The episode isn't over!"

It has been said that Bruce Schneier has implanted in his leg the chunk of leg muscle that House lacks. That's the reason for his roundkicks.

Also, if Dr. House had studied Veterinary he could have stopped the dinosaur extinction.x

House is brilliant! Even though it was known long before this, Hugh Laurie is brilliant. And he's unbelievably sexy. Now all this show needs is a guest appearance by Stephen Fry.

He auditioned for the part over the phone in a bathroom. They had heard of Hugh Laurie only because he had been in "Stuart Little"... as an American.

Of course..Accuracy Counts.

From what I've seen, it's an enjoyable show.

I'm likely to get shunned for this, but I hate House.

I've only caught two episodes and they both annoyed the hell out of me. The House character is an ass, and with the drug use and whatnot is a danger to his patients.

And while everyone talks about his brilliant diagnoses, it seemed to me watching the show that he just kept making shot after shot in the dark, and eventually one of them was right. This doesn't make him brilliant at diagnoses, it just makes him a guy capable of spouting off every possible problem that matches some/all of the symptoms. Hell it seems like half the time his diagnoses make the patient much *worse* before he finally hits on the right one and makes them better.

Yes, but he's an ass who isn't even particularly good at his job. So he's an ass without any real redeeming value.

Exactly, that's the whole point. He's mean, manipulative, selfish and rude. But he's really really good at what he does and he's always right (almost). He's Sherlock Holmes, basically. Well, Sherlock Holmes with more atitude.

He's pretty damn good at his job... I mean, he cures the patients in all the episodes I've seen, and I would assume in most (except that baby one...)

And if he was truly good and didn't need to make the shots in the dark, each episode would only be 10 minutes. Let us not lose our perspective of the fact that its a television show meant to keep us watching for an hour.

Indeed. So far we only know of two patients he's ever lost, and we've only seen one.

Yeah, but the mechanism used to make it a usable length is what annoys me about the TV show. Thus the TV show annoys me.

I do not find his character enjoyable, being smart does not give you license to be an ass. Nothing gives a doctor a right to be a drug addict (and thus potentially endanger the lives of his patients).

And the shots in the dark annoyed me in general, to the point where I don't watch the show. But the number of people talking about how brilliant a doc he is, when every episode he's just throwing treatments at a patient until something sticks has the net effect of annoying me every time the subject comes up.

To bring it to something I know personally. A good mechanic figures out what is wrong with a car, and fixes that. A mediocre mechanic "throws parts at the problem" by replacing anything that might be related, until the problem goes away. Yes in the end they both fix the car, but the first is much more elegant, and a lot simpler.

And since I'm writing all this, I'll offer an alternative so I'm not just whining. To me what would show a brilliant doctor would be for the episode to consist of them running tests, exploring the patient history, etc. *Then* coming up with the brilliant diagnosis that saves the patient.

Yes, but without House, no shots would be taken in the dark when nobody knows what's wrong. At least House knows what shots to take in the dark.

CSI and it's spinoffs seem to be doing pretty good with that basic concept.

And smart people who are asses piss me off even more than stupid people who are asses, because in theory the smart person should be smart enough to know better.

Let me respond with something that I know about personally. "Medicine is NOT a science" as they told me at the hospital last week. The human body is vastly more complex than ANY car so your analogy is flawed and to be honest despite having done lots of tests and explored my patient history they just don't know what is wrong with me so, guess what they are doing? That's right, treating me with something to see if it will stick, hoping it wont make me worse and that it might make me better and in the meantime they have ordered up a whole bunch of more tests. Hmmm, what TV show does this remind me of? I hope they figure it out just after the last commercial break and before the show ends.

Why are you even in this thread? It really doesn't make sense to me to come into a thread full of people talking about how great something is to say that you don't like it. I'm sure there's a lot of people on the fora that don't like House, and I'm sure you'd find it waaaaay more productive to be talking to them instead of us!

In my defence let me mention that if you right-click on the picture and then choose properties, you get to see where it's hosted: http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a76/mi ... ness-1.jpg call me naive if you wish but I'm guessing that the "mightlyjalapeno" in the middle of that there URL is a fairly strong indicator that (s)he put it on photobucket in the first place.

Strange policy, spelling and grammar are not the same and you may be missing an important lesson. I only spell my name that way because usually "Temerity" is already taken on established boards and my mispelling allows me to use a reasonably recognisable form of the name I actually want so I have got into the habit of not even bothering to check for the correct spelling. Also, in haxor it would be "73m3ri7y" or even "|-|4(|{3®"

/\ oh, snap

As a side note, due to this thread, I've started watching TV again, just so I could watch House the other night. It was awesome. (Not counting DvDs, I haven't turned on the TV for months.)

Also note: just because you put something in photobucket doesn't mean that you created it. It just means that photobucket is pretty much the easiest way to post pics here.
