British guy: "House I think you're awesome"

Shut up! I need to think, go fetch me a latte. Hmm, it's a venereal disease, they're faking... someone call in the parents/wife/husband/wife/girlfriend/cousin so I can delve into their sexual history! You two... black guy and hot chick, go to the patient's house and smell their underwear.

We need to operate now... going, going, going... "House, we found POISON!"

Stop the operation!!!!! It's just poison, you'll be fine. oh yeah, and you have a tumor.


If your going to tell me the ending, you have to put SPOILER on top of the post! Now the rest of the season is ruined for me.

Excellent description of the show. ;-D

Is House completely formulaic? No doubt. Did I spell "formulaic" correctly? Not sure.

Anyway, yes, the episodes are the same, but House is just a fantastic character and he's compelling to watch.

I also think most people secretely fantasize about being as blunt as House is, which is certainly an excellent drawing card for the show itself.

Totally disagree. The musical was horrible, but every other one has been great.

I thought the season started off slow, and then really started to pick up in the second half. My No Good Reason was one of the shows best ever, a great blend of comedy and drama.

Scrubs is so great.

Cox is one of my favorite characters on any TV show, ever.

Totally disagree with you. The dramatic moments are still good for the most part, but the show is far too goofy. J.D. is becoming a joke, and his serious lines become far less believable when half his lines are completely ridiculous things said for cheap laughs. I could go on and on with other small flaws that add up to my favorite show being a major disappointment so far.
