God, I love "House". How could I not? Dr. House is an ass, but a smart one... the ultimate smartass. Hugh Laurie (a delicious name) is simply brilliant as the simply brilliant, but, alas, troubled, good doctor. The ensemble cast is fabulous. Yes, the stories are insane, the endings all predictable to a point... but then there's the soundtrack... wonderful! http://www.fox.com/house/features/music.htm
Yes, House is cranky, a drug-addict, scruffy and rude... and
S M A R T! Good enough!
Like everyone else on the planet, I don't watch that much TV, but I do try to catch "House"... and "Planet Earth" http://dsc.discovery.com/guides/planetearth/planetearth.html and "Deadliest Catch"http://dsc.discovery.com/fansites/deadliestcatch/deadliestcatch.html.
I swear that's it!
