Very swift delivery, product exactly as described, and so far (though I've by no means watched it all - there are something over 70 episodes) I'm enjoying it very much. Each episode follows the same formula, someone gets seriously crook, and House and his team have to find out what's wrong, and alongside there are the 'office' politics and the characters' personal 'issues'. The acting is good, and Hugh Laurie is outstanding as Dr House, who despite being eccentric, irascible, curmudgeonly, arrogant, witheringly sarcastic, manages also to get us to care about him and his work, and actually rather like him too. If all eight series continue to be as entertaining as the first this will have been a very good investment.
Excellent Blu Ray's of The Complete Collection of House M.D. If you love the series then the Blu Ray collection is the way to see the series at its absolute best. The series arrived in a large white "lidded" box containing the 39 BR discs in 8 season cases. The collection is Region Free (R0 or ABC compatible which allows playability in any country on any BR player) so even though I am in Australia (BR Region code B) and the collection is a UK product, the discs played perfectly on my Sony BDP-S6700 BR player. The BR cases are of a good quality and I had no broken centre "spokes" that clamp the discs in place securely, although a couple of the "bottom" discs were free floating on receipt of the package. The last disc in a couple of the cases had worked free but I have had that happen with many collections. It seems a weak spot if pressing the bottom of the BR case when it is closed..sometimes the disc just pops out then floats about freely inside. All discs were in excellent condition and look great in Blu Ray HQ resolution. Overall I am very pleased with this excellent TV series featuring great actors and well written scripts.
