I have only ever seen one episode of House, MD on tv (from the current second series) and I really enjoyed it. Totally bizarre, anarchic, very non-PC, and brilliantly written medical diagnostic thrillers - just my favourite sort of viewing.
However, it is on too late for me to watch on TV, and I am a technophobe about the dvd recorder :-0.
Knowing this, my precious DH bought me the whole first series on DVD on Saturday.
I am trying very hard to be disciplined and watch only one episode per day, as this will then last me a good three weeks. ......... but it is difficult !
DH is having a Seventies TV revival, and has bought (for a song from Ebay) the complete series of Planet of the Apes, the Rockford Files, the original Starsky and Hutch, some Dr Who , and the complete "Star Trek -the original series".
My one set of House MD cost only marginally less than all the ones he bought from EBay, which is quite sobering.
However, the only kosher Region 2 sets of House MD on Ebay were only fractionally less than what we paid at Woolworth`s, and the apparently official Asian ones aren`t always particularly good quality. There are sometimes compatibility issues with Region 4 Australian sets when played on some brands of region 2 dvd players (of course they are both the brands we have !), so the safest option was to buy the Region 2 set.
And yes, my husband is a sweetie !
