House M.D.

House M.D.

It’s my second week now of being hooked to “House M.D.” series.

Yes, I’ve been warned a few times that it is very addictive, and yet I decided to watch a couple of episodes.  Every day now I am staying late and waking up early just to see yet another episode.   The surprising thing is that I tought I’d get bored of it pretty soon – stories in every episode are very similar, characters behave in the same way, and jokes follow the same pattern.  However there is something slightly different about every episode that makes me want to see the next one.

So far, I am up to episode 11 of the 3rd season.  First season was very introductory and fun, except for that episode where Dr.House explains what happened his leg.  That episode alone was an excellent movie in itself, even if just 45 minutes long.  Second season was a bit more boring.  Third season is way more exciting, with this whole cop drama.

Also, I am sort of glad that I have the Russian version of the series.  I can hear how bad the translation is and that it misses quite a bit, but listening to all that terminology in English would really bore me to death.  I can’t undertand that stuff in Russian, but at least I can somewhat guess of the whereabouts.

Anyway, be warned that the series are very addictive and if you get hooked, you’ll spend a lot of time watching it – 6 seasons x 24 episodes x 45 minutes per episode adds up to a lot of time.  But if it happens that you try it and like it, you’ll have quite a bit to enjoy.  Make up your own mind.

  1. Umm, I’m watching it because Andrei likes it. But I see only the similarities. The same guessing of diseases when they try to figure out what’s wrong with the guy in question. I can even join the chorus and predict:
    – autoimmune?
    – no. because…

    I’m not addicted to this series and I’m kinda asking myself how can someone be. What is it that you like in it?

  2. Oana,

    well, I can’t put my finger on it, but it’s definitely not the medical stuff. I think that as with most of the television, reality has nothing to do with diseases, diagnosis, and treatment shown in this series.

    I find the relations, situations, and jokes entertaining. Entertaining enough to watch it episode after episode. :)
