    House, M.D. – Season Four

    The Story So Far…
    Executive Produced by Bryan Singer, House MD DVD“ follows the medical misadventures of Gregory House (Hugh Laurie), a genius diagnostician with a bum leg and addiction to painkillers, who hates people and loves puzzles. Working with his team of doctors and annoying the hospital administrators, House tackles the toughest cases, where no one can figure out what’s wrong with the patient. Focusing more on solving the mystery than the action in the operating room, the show tempers the drama of a medical show with House’s sarcastic humor, and mixes in some intriguing relationships among the doctors. August is the month for House, with the first Boston Legal DVDseason released on DVD in 2005, with annual releases to follow.

    The Show
    At the end of the third season, House’s Two and a half men DVDsomewhat trusted team of fellows was no more, having escaped his clutches, leaving for greener pastures. Without a group of doctors to balance his stubbornness, and serve as his whipping boys, the show’s dynamic just doesn’t work, a point illustrated by the first episode of the year, so you knew he wouldn’t be without a group for long, and this season spends more than half the episodes selecting a new gang of doctors for House to torture.


    Taking a cue from House’s love of TV and his love of manipulating people’s emotions, the search for a new team became a “real life” reality show, as he hires 40 fellows in order to whittle them down via a number of challenges. The wide variety of new characters, which include Kal Penn as a laid-back young doctor, Olivia Wilde’s conflicted and emotional No. 13, and master manipulator Amber (Anne Dudek), is developed quite well, making it difficult to figure out who would be sticking around when House finally makes his picks. Playing out over nine episodes, the process is a bit too drawn out, though it makes sense that House would take his time picking a team he doesn’t really want.

    Complicating matters is the presence Boston Legal DVDof the original team of Chase, Cameron and Foreman, though not in the way many may have expected, as it’s not a return to the status quo. Smartly, the old crew is used selectively, in a way that makes sense for the characters and which doesn’t overshadow the new group of doctors, as they need time to establish themselves, after three seasons with the original group. As one could expect, there’s obvious comparisons to be made between the two groups, but the new group stands on its own as well, opening up the chance to explore some different storylines that couldn’t be done with Cameron and company. That the new hires are played by some very talented actors (many will see Penn with some new respect) helps make the transition pretty painless.

    As usual, the many cases that House and his team help solve are wildly inventive, from a man (the ever excellent Frank Whaley) who builds his personality by mirroring the people he interacts with, to an astronaut who can see sounds. Similarly, the way he breaks the cases are unique, like his attempts to help a scientist stuck at the South Pole (Mira Sorvino) via webcam, or his kidnapping of an actor on his favorite soap opera, feeling that he’s sick and doesn’t know it. It’s rare that you run into a situation on this show that makes you feel you’ve seen it before, and if you ever did, it’s not going to end the way you expect.

    The subplots that tie together the Two and a half men DVDindividual episodes are intriguing as well, focusing on questions of faith and honesty, constant themes in House’s world. Episode three, “97 Seconds” is one of the best this season, with a subplot about a man who wants to die because a near-death experience was the best thing that ever happened to him, while the Christmas episode, “It’s a Wonderful Lie,” is House MD DVDan excellent examination of what the truth can mean to people. The relationship between House and his best friend Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard) also gets deeper exploration, as Wilson begins TheTwo and a half men DVD is an excellent comedy season。While Boston Legal DVD tv show is worth watching. Watching House MD DVDis a good relaxation, Best NCIS DVD is on sale. Most watched Charmed DVD is on special promotion. Buy one tree hill dvd is a wise decision. This Medium DVD is much cheaper than its previous version. The Apprentice DVD is the best seller of many stores.dating a girl who’s just like House, creating a great deal of friction between them.

    The situation leads up to the massive two-part season finale, which is probably the finest arc the show ever delivered. From the first moment, when House finds himself at a strip club, with no idea how he got there, to the heartbreaking final montage, it’s just about perfect television. The inventive way everythingunfolds , as we enter the questionable memories that House attempts to uncover following a traumatic accident, is the kind of art that is usually limited to the big-budget films of visionaries. Yes, the musical montages are a bit overdone, manipulating the viewer beyond the honest emotion of the scene, but in the midst of the greatness that surrounds them, thisindulgence can be forgiven. These episodes are just that good.
