House is great. Just the kind of doctor you don't want unless you really need him!
(Last year my sister had a mysterious illness with severe headaches. They put her in the hospital for a couple of weeks, ran every test imaginable, did a lumbar puncture (ouch), pronounced her the healthiest sick woman they'd ever seen. Finally decided it must have been "a virus." I kept saying "we need Dr. House!" ) [btw, she's just fine now]
Hugh Laurie is a wonderful actor -- better than Keifer Sutherland, I'm afraid. Love the fake American accent.
