Tv Season Info

During his fourth season, the dyspeptic medical detective (Hugh Laurie) is consumed by his search for a new team of associates to replace Foreman and Cameron (Omar Epps, Jennifer Morrison), who quit on him, and Chase (Jesse Spencer), whom he fired. Eventually, he narrows the field to Jeffrey Cole (Edi Gathegi), Amber Volakis (Anne Dudek), Chris Taub (Peter Jacobson), Lawrence Kutner (Kal Penn) and "Thirteen" (Olivia Wilde). He also hires a CIA doctor (Michael Michele) who doesn't want the job---only to fire her when she reconsiders. House dismisses Cole and Volakis (also known as "cutthroat bitch") as well, but she doesn't go away. House's sexually tense love-hate relationship with Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) intensifies, and Foreman, Cameron and Chase all return to Princeton/Plainsboro, although only Foreman returns to House's team. And through it all, House continues to perform his unique brand of medicine.

Critic Reviews for House Season 4

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Season four turned out better than we anticipated it would.

Feb 5, 2019 | Rating: 8.6/10 | Full Review…

The show made a much-needed shake-up. Enter a wonderful parody of reality shows and the re-introduction of one of the show's more brilliant concepts: House as Teacher.

Feb 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Three years ago, I used this very franchise to drag House. But now I've returned to sing the praises of one of my favorite episodes.

It's still got some kick in it.

Audience Reviews for House: Season 4

  • Apr 30, 2016
    House: Season 4 is short but sweet, but it includes one of the best two-part season finales ever. Smart writing, smart characters, smart everything.
  • Apr 22, 2015
    Although interrupted by the '07-'08 Writers Strike, season four is House's strongest so far. It grabs our favourite House themes by the cane and drags them into prominence. Dramatic cases and lying patients, for instance, two driving forces behind the brilliant series opener, 'Alone'. Then there's House's continued instability, diagnosed by all but himself as depression, and brought to a huge and heart-breaking climax that resonates in seasons to come. We also get to see plenty of House's entertainingly controversial "teaching techniques" with his new (huge but dwindling) team, and thankfully more of Wilson and less of House's old fellows. Seriously Chase, go away.

    The fourth season of House finally makes some major changes to the structure of the show. House's search for a new team is hilariously entertaining and the Amber storyline adds yet another layer to the mix. There are a few weak episodes, but for the first time an entire season has a consistent plot running through every episode in addition to the thoroughly amusing diagnoses.

    Season 4 of House, although following the same weekly medical mystery formula, is the show at its most focused, exciting, and creative! It has a wonderful story arch for Dr. House and ends on its most interesting and dramatic note yet!
