So my husband, who is attempting to enter nursing school got us addicted to this show.
Well actually it goes back further than that, my sister-in-law who is just now finishing medical school started it all. She suggested that Josh watch the show because it was sooo good. We started watching and she's right! It's pretty addictive. I love the guy who plays Dr. House, Hugh Laurie. He's a fantastic actor. And the American accent is so well done that you can't believe he's actually British. Part of the main story line is that he is addicted to pain pills. (Long story short, he has lots of pain because his thigh muscle had to be removed) Anyway, it's completely believable the way he uses the pain meds all the time. You find yourself totally sympathizing with him. For example in one episode the hospital administrator tries to get him to quit, and the entire episode he is suffering and you just want to throw the pills at him to give him some relief. While some of the episodes are a bit on the far fetched side, they are very entertaining, which in my opinion is what t.v. is all about.
We watch the old episodes by renting the DVD's from Netflix. Works out really well, and when we finish and are up to date on this series, we have plans to begin the show "Breaking Bad." And I am still waiting for Season 2 of True Blood to come out on DVD. NEED to watch! More about True Blood in my next post!
