House, MD has been off the air for several years now, but like many TV shows that acquired a cult following, viewers still can’t get enough of Gregory House, and you’ll continue to find the show in syndication most nights of the week. Whether you’ve got a House addict, a doctor, a med student, or a lover of medical dramas on your holiday shopping list, this compilation of twenty essays is sure to please.
What do you get when you combine CSI science, the medicine of ER, and an acerbic, pain pill addict with a cane? House MD.
In HouseUnauthorized: Vasculitis, Clinic Duty, and Bad Bedside Manner, the entire cast of the show is on the exam table: Wilson, Cuddy, Foreman, Cameron, Chase and particularly the cantankerous, but brilliant Dr. House.
What makes House tick? Why did he really hire Foreman, Cameron and Chase (and why is it so easy to believe he’s actually subjecting them to some sort of bizarre psychological testing)? What would House be like as a heating and plumbing repairman? And why doesn’t Wilson just stop talking to him already?
Answers to these questions are presented by a team of writers as talented as the team of doctors in House, MD. The prognosis? One heck of a good read.
