…you spend late Sunday afternoon and evening watching six episodes of the first season of House with the four other members of your family.
We didn’t become addicts until this season. And now we record every show (and watch the show whilst it records – because we couldn’t possibly wait until later to see the show without the commercials.) There is nothing like a TV series with great dialogue. Dialogue that gets repeated (sometimes ad nauseam) in this household. Lines like, “I know you’re in there. I can feel you caring,” as House stands outside the locked office door of his buddy, Wilson. Delivered with impeccable timing by the British actor with the flawless American accent, Hugh Laurie.
I was a West Wing addict for the first few years because of the dialogue. We watch this show because of the dialogue. If you haven’t watched it – get the first season from Blockbuster. And then catch up with the second. This is good television.
