House MD

It is without a doubt that Hugh Laurie is one of the best actors that we have ever seen. He is an actor with a diverse talent, which means he can meld into any character that you put him into. For instance, you would remember Hugh in Stuart Little as he was Mr. Little, the kind of grounded man that was much centered towards his family. However, that isn’t all for Hugh as he was also the very cynical yet talented Dr. House in House MD, which is considered to be one of the best medical TV shows of all time.

If you really wish to watch House, you can watch it on Fox, provided that your Cable TV service offers Fox in its channel lineup. In that case, it would be smart to opt for Spectrum TV since it not only offers Fox but also makes sure that you can watch the channel in crystal clear picture quality.

Coming back to House MD, here are some of the reasons why we think House MD is among the best medical shows of all time.

1. Hugh Laurie’s Acting and Gregory House as a Character

One of the best things about House MD is definitely Hugh Laurie’s captivating acting that made his character of Gregory House one of the most influential and loved characters of all time. Hugh definitely knows how to leave an impact on the audience and he does not hold back at all when it comes to acting. Whether the role may be a comedic one or a serious one, Hugh knows what to do and how to do it.

In the show, Gregory House is a cynical doctor who feels like the world is out to get him and he can’t trust anyone on the process. Not only is he insanely sarcastic but he also is a bit of an anti-social person and he doesn’t really know how to interact with people well. He also has a problem with taking a lot of pills which could definitely be seen as something problematic for him.

2. The Show is Very ‘Time Appropriate’

Another engaging element about the show is how time appropriate and true to life it was. The show initially came out back in 2004 and it is a perfect depiction of what times were like back then and how people lived. The show is nearly 20 years old and even today, the show is just as relatable as it was back then. The show also depicts how people have had a mistrust of doctors and hospitals and initially everyone feels like their problem cannot be diagnosed but then a Doctor like Dr, House shows up and tells you what the problem really is and what the solution to it could be.

3. The Dynamic Duo of Dr. House and Dr. Wilson

Nearly every show out there has a duo that makes the show or movie worth watching, exactly like the case in Breaking Bad with Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. The same way, the dynamic duo in House MD was that of Dr. House and Dr. Wilson, who are like Sherlock and Watson in a way. The best part is that while House is shown to be a very cynical person, Dr. Wilson is actually the other way around and is like the human form of sunshine. Dr. Wilson is House’s best friend and is also the head of the oncology department and they have the kind of friendship that would have you in stitches throughout the show.

Despite House’s trust issues and his anti-social nature, he values his friendship with Wilson over anything else and the kind of friendship that they have is just beautiful. You would have to watch the show to understand what we are saying.

4. The Realistic Cases in the Show

Another thing that makes watching the show worthwhile is the fact that many of the cases that are shown in the show are actually pretty realistic. This gives you the sort of idea about what is going on in the world and what could go wrong with someone. It also makes you appreciate the efforts of Doctors and how they are able to diagnose what is wrong with you only by listening to problems that you might have.

House MD among a lot of other shows is the kind that gives you a very realistic depiction of medical cases that could happen and what could likely happen once the patients head to the hospital.

5. The Interesting Debate between Science and Faith

Another thing about the show that really caught our attention was the debate between Science and Faith that was sparked up after every while. Everyone must be aware that Dr. House is the kind of man that believes in Science and he isn’t much into religion at all. The debate would usually spark up when Dr, House would come across a patient that would be religious and would bring religion into the diagnosis. The debates would actually get pretty interesting to listen to so if you think you would be into that, you should definitely watch the show.

Wrapping Up

These were some of the things that we feel like make House MD one of the best medical shows of all time. Now all you need to do is watch the show yourself so that you could put your opinion forth as well.
