Review:

I watched the first four or five seasons of House way back in the day on Hulu. I then tried to watch it live but for whatever reason couldn’t get into it. Now that all the episodes are on Netflix I decided to give it another shot.

I started at the very beginning so I’d get the full experience of binge watching. Plus I didn’t remember all the character intricacies, though I did remember a surprising number of episodes.

Love the relationship between Wilson and House. The fact that Wilson can mess with his mind is pretty awesome.

I preferred the first four seasons, the fifth season focused on relationships too much. I liked the sexual tension between Cuddy and House better than when they actually did stuff. I also preferred when each episode had a patient in the clinic that helped House figure it out.

When they started teasing with the last few episodes that Wilson was going to die I was pissed off. I could handle House dying but Wilson would have made me hate the show. I know the way they left it you could infer that Wilson does die, but I like to think that he comes to his senses and does the chemo and gets all better. Then he and House spend the rest of their days in Mexico or some South American country being doctors.

4/5
