    House (aka House MD), from executive producers Paul Attanasio, Katie Jacobs, David Shore, and Bryan Singer is a new take on mystery, where the villain is a medical malady and the hero is an irreverent, controversial doctor who trusts no one, least of all his patients.

    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.

    House thrives on its one-two punch of ''He's a cad... a genius cad!'' But the series falters when it comes to genuine character development.

    Strongest season of the show in my opinion. It builds on the strengths of the first season, namely: the interesting cases and the strengths ofStrongest season of the show in my opinion. It builds on the strengths of the first season, namely: the interesting cases and the strengths of its cast, particularly front man Hugh Laurie, who shines in this season as the medical equivalent to Sherlock Holmes. The show hits its peak here, and while that's a bit of a shame in the long run, don't let that stop you from enjoying every second in the meantime! Expand

Diving into House's past with Stacy is a nice development. The core cast gets more attention this season as well. As always, House-centric, but who cares when his character is so entertaining. The season finale is one of the best episodes of the show as is the two-part Euphoria. 8.9/10 Expand
