[hide]*1 Story


The British actor Hugh Laurie plays Dr. Gregory House, a medical genius who leads a team of young diagnosticians. He is not only very by itself, but also blunt and rude and would prefer to avoid all contact with his patients. His direct way of communicating and cynical comments make it almost impossible for many people to deal with him.Partly his behavior by the chronic pain in his right leg, caused by a wrong medical treatment. Nevertheless, he is held in high regard because of its ability to seemingly terminally ill patients to diagnose and treat. This, and his penchant for medical issues, making him the last hope for "untreatable" patients with unusual and mysterious diseases. House ' philosophy is easiest to set as follows: "The truth of the human condition is that everyone lies. The only variable is about what. " Dr. James Wilson(Robert Sean Leonard), head of Oncology, is his only friend and also the only one who accepts all his defects. He tries to behave as social House. With Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), head of the hospital, House has a love-hate relationship. It recognises him to his work, but has her hands full to his behavior. To combat the pain in his leg used House Vicodin. This medium is also a source of conflict, because it is addictive and his colleagues think it his work negatively. But especially if he did not do the middle. the team of the first season remains virtually all eight seasons in tact, with the exception of Dr. Allison Cameron (played by Jennifer Morrison), who after the sixth season no longer returns, and Dr. Lisa Cuddy (played by Lisa Edelstein) who leaves the series after the seventh season. [2]

Season one, two and three[Edit]Edit

Doctor Gregory House has an elite team of young medical experts gathered where he works. Dr. Eric Foreman (Omar Epps) is a neurologist with a slightly suspect past,Dr. Allison Cameron (Jennifer Morrison) a passionate immunologist and Dr. Robert Chase (Jesse Spencer) is a smart, but conceited IC-doctor. Together with them trying House on unconventional way to save the lives of patients. For example, a team member so feel free to let him hack into the home of a patient, to look for clues that could explain the disease. In addition to solving the medical puzzle play a role the personal circumstances of the various players. So meet Chase his father after having had no contact for a very long time, Cameron is in love with House, getting Foreman a deadly infection, Wilson once again separate goes and pulls from House and get Chase and Cameron a relationship. House itself is facing an extremely ambitious Board Chairman and a vindictive policeman. Also his former lover Stacy (Sela Ward), comes back into his life. First because her husband an unclear condition, later she is a lawyer employed by the hospital.

Season four[Edit]Edit

Having been in the finale of season three Foreman and Cameron have taken resignation and Chase gets fired, starts season four with House that only a case trying to solve. Cuddy forces him to adopt a new team, however, and he answers to this request by forty people to believe; This Cuddy's to the chagrin. After a kind of play for House, with good and bad responses from the candidates and correct and incorrect diagnoses remained there three people about who the new team of House forms: Dr. Chris Taub (Peter Jacobson), Dr. Lawrence Kutner (Kal Penn) and Dr. Remy ' Thirteen ' Hadley (Olivia Wilde). Salient detail is that the actors who played the forty applicants knew in advance which of them would not continue. Only after the appearance of the script of a new episode was there known who is out of the game. For the actors was therefore a real waste race. The last one that losing weight is Amber (Anne Dudek). However, she comes back as the girlfriend of Wilson. Foreman tries to work somewhere else, but because he is too much the way House has taken over failing that and he comes back to Princeton to get back to work for House. Also Chase and Cameron are still working in the same hospital, even if they get much less playing time and only occasionally come into the picture at a consultation, surgery (Chase) or if the first aid (Cameron) comes into the picture. The final of this season is a double episode where House loses his memory in a bus accident. Also Amber is in the same bus and will eventually (indirectly) to the injuries they incur death.

Season five[Edit]Edit

Thirteen has this nickname due to the song she had at the waste race during the application period. In season four has shown that the (ultimately fatal) has Huntington's disease . Get that her colleagues on the well-known blunt way of House to hear. He finds that it affects her judgment. Though she gets a relationship with Foreman. Wilson wants away at Princeton hospital, according to House a ridiculous decision because it does fail, but also his career because he lost his only friend will hit. Cuddy's biological clock is ticking and she decides that she wants a child. First by himself and later through adoption. House makes the hair of course not easy, but on his way he helps her though. The father of House dies and House do not want to go to the funeral because it says to know that it is not his biological father. Wilson forces a breakthrough.House hires a private detective, Lucas Douglas (Michael Weston), in order to spy on Wilson and his staff. Kutner commits to the dismay of everyone halfway through the series suicide whereby Foreman become more active in the team. Cameron still in marriage and Later asks Chase after getting rid of any obstacles, the ceremony took place during the last episode. House is not one of them. So by the end of the season he begins to hallucinate in the person of Amber, the deceased friend of Wilson, which makes him confused at diagnosis. He tries everything to get away from it, but in the end he admits that he needs help and if we see that Wilson Cliffhanger House delivers a mental hospital.

Season six[Edit]Edit

Begins with an extra long episode in which we House experience in the mental hospital. Of course, he finds that he can go home after it has been cleaned up of the Vicodin. But his psychiatrist does not cure and as long as he gets his House has been declared not doctors license does not return. He first tries the doctors and nurses on rattle so they will dismiss him of misery. But there they cross a stop to it. Then he tries it with deception and if that also doesn't help he gives himself over to the treatment. In between, he has a lot of influence on his fellow patients. After his resignation he goes live at the request of his psychiatrist at Wilson to make less likely that he will get a kickback. Foreman has since taken charge of the team, but that is not going without a hitch. By his love affair with Thirteen has affected their business contact there. It seems to him the best he dismisses her. If he does, she is going away from him. Taub would only work under House and takes itself dismissal. Chase and Cameron jump, but things are not running smoothly. House comes back again and sees chance Taub and Thirteen of retrieval. Now get Cuddy a relationship with Douglas, the private detective. An episode is largely dedicated to Cuddy, we see her during one day struggling with a few complex administrative problems. Wilson also has a episode that largely to him is dedicated. He buys a different apartment and House follows him. So by the end of the season he gets a relationship with one of his ex-wives, of course this is grist to the mill of House. We also see that Chase and Cameron (wedding) problems get through a medical act of Chase.

Season seven[Edit]Edit

After the season finale of season six, in which you see that House and Cuddy get a relationship, try House and Cuddy their relationship at work to make it work. Cuddy wants to keep secret, but the first House tells this of course to anyone. We also see that Thirteen leaves the team of House. When Cuddy a serious illness to her kidneys turns out to have no know House Council. To relieve the pain he takes a few Vicodin. This is not good at Cuddy, because it gives her the impression that House there just for her may have been under the influence of Vicodin. That's why Cuddy it out and goes back to the House again finally desperate Vicodin. He tries as much as possible from the "break up" to get, such as a plasma tv, a monster truck and a wedding. In the season final drive House Cuddy's House with his car. After this, he ends up for about 6 months in prison.

Season eight[Edit]Edit

This season begins with a scene in which House is tells that he was only a week have to be in prison, provided he behaves well. It is further built up in this season much to the ultimate House MD final, which was broadcast in America on May 21, 2012. At Thirteen, Wilson is cancer comes back and Foreman Cuddy's course takes over.

After a joke does House everything we can to stay out of prison, he asks him to dying people, instead of going to prison. House puts his own death scene, so he remains out of jail, no need to commit suicide (dead seems boring him) and he Wilson a few good "last months" can give. While Wilson speaks at his funeral, nice started, but after this failed he began to tell the hard truth about House, he receives a sms: "shut up, you idiot." Wilson finds House and together they go the last 5 months of Wilsons celebrate life.

Course delivery[Edit]Edit

Episodes of the series expired often according to a fixed pattern:

  • In a patient unless proved otherwise, any condition, usually in acute form and life-threatening.
  • House and his underlings start to the differential diagnosis and try to recognize and combat the disease.
  • Invariably they sit next to it, as demonstrated by the deteriorating state of the patient (sometimes the motions relating to medications).
  • Around the 38th minute of an episode gets House than a "revelation" (usually by something that is totally unrelated to the symptoms), then the correct diagnosis. Usually it is an extremely rare condition that virtually no doctor ever get to see: the reality series has no medical value. In three seasons he has run only once a diagnosis has been made, under the influence of narcotics wrong end-abstinence.

In between, he almost inadvertent way treats patients with normal symptoms, something he hates it. Raids for out-patient services are a regularly recurring object of betting.
