Great powers of observation, deductive reasoning and medical jargons, eh? I'm sold!
I wouldn't guess that I would find House interesting. He's a jerk, but so is Holmes. And I was not able to guess that Holmes was also an inspiration to this guy's character.
I managed to stumble upon a few episodes of the series starting with Season 2, and at first I started to play it for background noise. But as I progressed with the series and got to know the characters and the interesting circumstances that they have to go through with Dr. House and his most of the time unconventional - which may borderline illegal or unethical medical practice - well, I got hooked!
Hahaha... I guess I found another series to watch.
