House, MD Vs. Grey's Anatomy
House or Grey's Anatomy?
House Versus Grey
I've never really been into medical shows unless it's a "CSI" or "Without a Trace" drama. But, my new obsession of the medical dramas on television today, started with an empty night and nothing on tv... Or so I thought.
House, M.D., was my introduction into this new field of television. I came into the season dead in the middle without an iota of an idea of what was going on. Soon, I noticed old reruins on the USA Channel. My new favorites started. House is cynical, sarcastic, and honest. I like him.
But, until the past week or two, I've never seen one Grey's Anatomy episode. Again, nothing on tv, so I figured I'd check it out. Middle of the season, no clue what's going on, but I think I'm hooked. It's drama. Who couldn't like it?
House, MD Season Episodes
Fox's House, M.D.
Gregory House, M.D., is a medical genius who leads a team of young diagnosticians at a teatching hospital in New Jersey. Eith each episode, House and his team try to diagnose a patient's illness. The team uses the Socratic method and differential diagnosis when arriving at the correct diagnosis for each patient. House and his team tend to misdiagnose and mistreat the patient several times before House is able to properly figure out and diagnose the patient.
House is a nationally-renowned doctor who tends to see patients who have failed to receive care or treatment at other facilities.
His favorite line is, "Everybody lies," and usually, that is the case, whether the patient is lying to him and his team about symptoms or some other portion of their life.
As a subplot, Lisa Cuddy, House's boss, requires him to treat patients in the hospital's clinic. This is something he hates, but usually the simple cases in the walk-in-clinic help him sol the big case.
House usually has his team break into the patient's home to find clues as to what the cause could be and what the diagnosis could lead to. Many times, this is the sole determinant to the diagnosis, but at the same time, it tend to lead to a deadend.
Throughout each episode we watch House and his Vicodin addiction to manage the pain from an infarction in his quadricep muscle years past. So, with his pill addiction, sarcasm, and near hatred for people, House, M.D. is a thrilling show to watch.
