The place for all media references to House. I recently posted one such listing which I'll repeat here in less words. First, a link to the original post.

Then the link to the article. You have to scroll nearly half way down to get to some House acrticle/references here. Look for the words "HOT DOCS" in all caps and bold. Keep scrolling and they rate House's other doctors' (and Grey's Anatomy doctors') bedside manners. Everything they wrote about House I had seen before - word for word I think. So here are some snippets on the other doctors.

Here's one from the UK premiere in The Scotsman. It harps about the accent a bit too much, and has this strange line:

Bizarrely enough, the programme also features someone speaking with one of those honey-dripping English accents you only get on American TV.


Am I stupid, or who is he talking about? There's no way a UK person thinks Chase has a British accent, is there?

Maybe during The Socratic Method when House "fakes" the English accent over the phone?

English? Honey-dripping? Point me to this character.

It's one thing for those in the US to mistake Chase's accent for a British one. But for someone in the UK itself?

Here's a couple to start.

The Official Fox site for House.

House Transcripts and More

play.house - listings of music on House, per episode, with track and CD references and links. Including Hugh Laurie playing Silent Night on the piano (sigh/swoon). Also has many other good links to other sites.

Devoted to Hugh Laurie

Yeah, Chase is very clearly Australian, though I did live in Australia for 6 months, so perhaps I have more practice listening, but I would certainly expect an Englishman to be able to discern the difference. And I would think that everyone in the UK would know that House's phone accent was Hugh's real accent, since he's so well-known.

Why thank you, Britomart, I appreciate the confidence and will work hard to fulfill your faith in it.

And if people have any suggestions, ideas, things they would like to see in a website about the show, I hope they let me know (I don't do actors as there are other sites that do and I can't do screen shots or transcripts, etc.) but otherwise I will consider ideas from viewers). Email address is at the bottom of every page in the site.

Posted while aquarian1 was adding the note. Thanks for thinking of the site.

Here is an odd review from icSouthlondon. He likes the show for the most part, but really, really loves Hugh. But, there's this:

The first few episodes don't ever fully explain his background and how he ended up walking with a limp and guzzling pain killers 10 to the dozen.


He's right. It's never fully explained. But, we know how he got the limp by the end of the pilot. I found it kind of odd that he put it that way.

Except that this is the Scotsman. Still......


Seriously. If he's actually talking about Jesse (and there's no one else he *could* be talking about), that's just completely strange. And poor Jesse, having his natural accent accused of being a fake British one.

'Sexual predator?' Yeah, I'd say that House lets more than the occasional inappropriate line slip which would classify as sexual harassment, but a sexual predator? Has this reviewer been reading A Stranger Beside Me?

OK, I am so effing lost! The threads have gone off in a million different directions, and with some of the titles, it's impossible to know what they cover. This one had the most names I recognized, and was actually clear as to what it was about. So will someone please hold my hand, and give me some advice? Is there a thread that's going to talk about, you know, the show? In general? Not the BOUO, not the door to the roof, not Jesse and Jennifer, but just the plot?

Frankly, with one thread, even though it went fast, I could follow it. With this many, unless I find my niche, I'll probably just drop out. (My boss would probably appreciate that). ;-)

And is there a thread just to discuss Hugh?

yes, here as for the show in general, there's a thread for season one in it's entirety here and others for particular episodes, if you scroll through the list in House General Gabbery. Good luck! We don't want to see you go. (I, for one, like the split. This way I can only read what I'm interested in.)

LogCabinPat, there will be episode threads opening up right after an episode airs each week. These threads will be for discussion specific to that episode. Since Season 1 has already aired, those who want to discuss the episodes can open them. Here's the one for Three Stories:
Three Stories Thread

Also, general discussion about Hugh would go in the Doctors, Patients, .... subforum, in the Greg House thread here: Dr. House Thread

aquarian1, I am so pathetic. I linked to this site, and downloaded the Quicktime player, and I can listen to the songs, but I clicked on the Leno interview and I can only see it, not hear it. And I don't think I can read lips that well. Can you advise?

Did we crash the forums? I wonder. (Hee)

Anyway, here's another article that mentions Hugh Laurie. Nothing new, but it hasn't been posted in these new subforums (g). Anyway, scroll about a fifth of the way down til you see May 28, 2005, 12:18 PM CDT: 'House' party: Hugh Laurie talks about his cranky-doc character, 'American Idol' and Stephen Fry's two limps. I'm not sure why it's in today's edition of Metromix, but there it is.

LogCabinPat - I'm not sure. It worked fine for me. If I have any ideas I'll email you.

ETA:
From Lisa de Moraes:

Newark, N.J.: Do you think the brilliant Hugh Laurie will get a chance to appear on a decent talk show like Jon Stewart's or Ellen's? What was Fox smoking when they made their breakout new star have to endure the agony of Regis and Kelly a few weeks back? Who makes these choices anyway?

Lisa de Moraes: please tell me you're kidding. He went on Regis and Kelly? I'm sick...

Re: Hugh Lawrie: Lisa, please explain to all of us guys out here what exactly makes that House dude attractive to women? I didn't realize that skinny and unkept was the look. See, guys are never this confusing -- Pam Anderson is hot -- you ladies may think she looks slutty and trashy (exactly), but at least you can see what guys like about her.

Lisa de Moraes: Enormous.....talent.

Thank you for the song clue Dreamer247 because the interview actually started about about 20:30:00 for me and the whole show began at 18:00:00. Since our times differ, I suggest that people who want to listen to this great interview use the 15 minute skip ahead option until the last hour (the show is three hours long) and then switch to the five minute skip option. Unless, of course, you want to listen to the whole show.

Sad/insiprational story in Red Nova about a cancer survivor that mentions House at the end

THINGS might have gone very differently for Steven and his fellow sufferers had their specialist been anything like the curmudgeonly, misanthropic, wise- cracking Dr Gregory House in Five's new drama, which comes freshly hung with garlands from America Do such people exist over there?

Are there really senior consultants who can't bear to be anywhere near their patients? ('Treating illnesses is why we became doctors,' House tells his young, impressionable team. 'Treating patients is what makes most doctors miserable.') How many heads of diagnostic medicine in major hospitals would give diagnoses based on guesses, risking a billion-dollar law suit?

Who knows? Who cares? This is primetime TV Land, and Dr House is a TV doctor. You can tell that by his name.

More to the point, as far as British viewers are concerned, he is played by Hugh Laurie, with a beard, a gammy leg, a walking stick, an addiction to painkillers and a startlingly good American accent.

If he recited the Hippocratic Oath every week, in the original Greek, people would watch him. Me included. I'm just glad I don't have to be treated by him.

I agree wholeheartedly with the first 2 sentences of that last paragraph. But, if House really did exist, and I had something no one could figure out, I would want House to treat me - I can forgive teh gruffness if he actually finds a cure for what ailed me.

ETA: I also like that he's being added in Today in History articles. Under the "Today's birthdays" section. (I did the bolding of his name).

Today's Birthdays: Opera singer Rise Stevens is 92. Actor-producer Richard Todd is 86. Author William Styron is 80. Actor Gene Wilder is 72. ... Football Hall of Famer Joe Montana is 49. Actor Hugh Laurie is 46. Country singer-songwriter Bruce Robison is 39. Country musician Smilin' Jay McDowell is 36. ...  Actor Shia La Beouf ("Even Stevens") is 19.

Today, in my mailbox, was the June 2 edition with a full-page black and white picture of Hugh as the false cover. It was an Emmy "For Your Consideration" ad. *Swoon* He is just so, so hot.

It's a great article - someone on Live Journal copied it. It's really long so I don't want to cut and paste here.
