Tv Season Info

The first series of House introduces Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie), a misanthropic physician known for his uncanny ability to diagnose tricky illnesses, and total lack of bedside manner. His notoriously harsh personality and unconventional methods lead to frequent disagreements among his colleagues, particularly the Dean of Medicine, Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein). Realizing his skill, Dr. Cuddy allows House to handpick a team of fellow medical mavericks to serve as his personal diagnostic team, including Dr. Robert Chase (Jesse Spencer), Dr. Allison Cameron (Jennifer Morrison), and Dr. Eric Foreman (Omar Epps). Though House is more often than not at odds with at least one member of his team, their combined skills help save patients less qualified physicians may have written off as lost causes.

Critic Reviews for House: Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (11)

Laurie gives House a kind of negative charisma that is fascinating to watch, and likable in its way. And it's hard not to notice that despite his fits and spats, House does save lives.

April 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Adding to the generally exceptional production values, the cast is believable and compelling.

November 13, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

I'm at a loss to find anything wrong with this show outside of the formulaic TV aspects of the show.

November 13, 2018 | Full Review…

That existential darkness at the heart of this series created by the gifted Paul Attanasio... is what makes it one of the more intriguing dramas in a fall season distinguished by them.

November 13, 2018 | Full Review…

House is, in short, a great, juicy, colorful protagonist. And Laurie plays him with a sourpuss charisma and a wit so dry it crackles.

July 2, 2018 | Full Review…

House is only mediocre.
