House Call

My tv dial rarely lands on Fox. Their sports coverage hyped too much, and the news is anything but fair and balanced. Their so-called reality shows, like Who's Your Daddy - puhleeze! But, Fox has a winner in their new medical show, House.

Greg House has the technical skills of an uber-doctor and the bedside manner of Don Rickles. Here is one recent exchange with a patient:

Dr. House: "Unfortunately, you have a deeper problem. Your wife is having an affair."

Patient: "What?!"

Dr. House: "You're orange, you moron. And it's one thing for you not to notice, but if your wife hasn't picked up on the fact her husband has changed colors, she's just not paying attention."

House is a different and entertaining diversion from the typical medical show. Give it a try on Tuesday nights at 9pm on Fox.
