THE BOX: In the "House"

If you want to see the best breakthrough performance by a male this television season, tune into House, Tuesday 9 p.m. on Fox.

Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) does for medicine what Alan Shore (James Spader) of Boston Legal does for law. This show adds more excitement to a hospital than the first season of ER (no George Clooney needed). Hugh Laurie, after two episodes, is a lock for an Emmy next year... my opinion anyway. Yes this show is that good. The flanking cast, including Robert Sean Leonard and Omar Epps, have proved nothing more than Dr. House's whipping boys and girl. His snide arrogance and irreverant sense of humor is nothing less than beautiful and endearing... to me at least. He kinds reminds me of some of the people I've dated.

Anyway, this is what the Official Site says:

"DR. GREGORY HOUSE (Hugh Laurie) is devoid of bedside manner and wouldn’t even talk to his patients if he could get away with it. Dealing with his own constant physical pain, he uses a cane that seems to punctuate his acerbic, brutally honest demeanor. While his behavior can border on antisocial, House is a maverick physician whose unconventional thinking and flawless instincts have afforded him a great deal of respect. An infectious disease specialist, he’s a brilliant diagnostician who loves the challenges of the medical puzzles he must solve in order to save lives. House’s roster of medical cases are the inexplicable ones other doctors can’t solve, and he has assembled an elite team of young medical experts to help him in his effort to solve these diagnostic mysteries."

Solving the dilema. While House takes over 24's former time slot, earlier this fall I fell in love with Veronica Marson the UPN at 9 p.m. Since I'm TiVo-less, what's a girl to do?

MTV "repurposes" the prior week's Veronica Mars at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays. Oh well, I'm satisfied being a week behind. Check 'em out!
