Synopsis: House starts this season without a team, but he has a very House-ian method for selecting a new one.

Reaction: This season is quite short due to the writers' strike that happened in late 2007, but on the whole, it's enjoyable enough despite the low episode count.

Personal Rating: 8/10

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • The show was inspired by [The Diagnosis Column] in the New York Times Magazine which spotlights unusual medical cases. Executive Producer Paul Attanasio came up with the concept and pitched it to the networks as a medical procedural. Creator David Shore revised the idea into a character drama where the medical cases became the instrument instead of the focus of the storytelling.
  • Foreman never wears the same outfit twice.
  • Hugh Laurie (Dr. Gregory House) is the only actor to appear in all 178 episodes of the series.
  • Lupus is the most common red herring diagnosis. After this was pointed out, it became a running joke on the show.
  • Numerous times throughout the series, House mentions watching [The O.C. (2003)]. In season four Olivia Wilde joins the cast as a series regular. She also played a recurring part during season two of [The O.C. (2003)]. She played a bisexual in both series.
  • Although the Diagnostic Medicine team deal with all types of diseases, House and his colleagues hold titles in various subspecialties: Dr. Foreman is a neurologist; Dr. Cameron is an immunologist/allergist; Dr. Chase is an intensivist; Dr. Taub is a plastic surgeon; Dr. Kutner specializes in sports medicine; Dr. Hadley (Thirteen) is an internist. As for Dr. House, he is double-certified in infectious disease and nephrology (as mentioned in episode #1.3).
