Best adaptation of Sherlock Holmes ever. Even better than BBC's Sherlock (it lacks the drug abuse and 'unethical' practices from the detective. It's too "politically correct", it's somewhat annoying). Now if you think I'm on the wrong show posting this, either you didn't watch House MD, or you don't know Sherlock Holmes...

Wilson have Cancer, now House should be diagnosed with Lupus, and that would be the major irony of this show

It's never lupus. -Dr. Gregory House

Great show. i looked for a series with a genius main actor like house for a long time. he never stopped to suprise me,really made me love this series so much

avatar

Loved the ending. Not too sensational, but fitting. Thank you David Shore, for an amazing series. And Hugh, looking forward to your next project!

avatar

i hate shows that drag on with no end in sight, just crazy weekly conundrums and circular storytelling to nothingness just to stretch out more seasons ... House, Blacklist, Supernatural, etc all have these never ending meaningless story-lines that i don't care for, but draw in a big fan base ... i made it 70 episodes (finale of season three) before i couldn't take it any longer and moved on to other better shows

avatar

Ridiculously good show, but one where people criticising the "formulaic" nature are missing the point entirely. The medicine is merely a vehicle for the logic, philosophy, ethics, and comedy involved in the intricate writing of the show. Re-watching forevermore.

Twenty Vicodin looks promising

avatar

House and Nurse Jacky should bang

this show is very good! I just can't to stop watching it! I generally don't watch big TV series with long length, but it worth it

I can't say I have watched all those series (at least not yet...).

But I have compiled the best episodes for each of them.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
