Not a great deal, considering the region free Blu-Ray set has been under $50 on Amazon UK in the past, and probably will be again at some point. Keep an eye out around Black Friday time.

If i buy this, is it possible to make it digital? Such as putting it on a hard drive? I don't think i want to carry that many DVDs if i need it later.

I've never seen an episode of House so I won't comment on the quality of the series itself. But being the opinionated troublemaker I am, I'll just say I remember seeing House episode previews during the old days when I watched The Simpsons live with commercials (back when The Simpsons were actually funny). I remember the loud thumping heartbeats and hyper directing with narration like "House... can he save the world from utter destruction for the 100th time as the most deadly pandemic mankind ever has known arrives at his hospital... thump thump thump thump. Tune in for an all new House. Your life may depend on it. Thump thump." All that was missing is the percussion heavy Latin choral music you typically hear in the apocalyptic movies when the world is ending. Anyway, those overdone previews are what made me never want to watch House. And who knows... it might actually be good and interesting, but I hate gimmicks like heartbeats, bad directing, shakycams, cameras spinning around people, fast zooms, etc. Those previews made it look like House was full of that.

That said, the OP might want to mention the Blurays for $86 because I can't imagine anyone paying $60 for DVDs when Bluray quality is so much better. If you ever get a large screen 2K projector, you will discover that 1080p Blurays look beautiful, but even upscaled DVDs look fuzzy when projected. It has made me never want to buy a DVD again. Every time I see an expensive DVD deal like this, I ask myself: do people really still buy DVDs? And sadly I know the answer is yes, a majority of people buy DVDs over Bluray.

And I'll watch it on Netflix, amazon for free. Might have to take the DVD mail option, but I've got my Greg Lorrie subscribed Vicodin to help between mailings.

First few seasons were good. Then it went from bad to worse just like many other series. Can't get enough of House's condescending sarcasm tough.

Should put house, iron man, Sheldon Cooper in a room and see what happens. Lol.

I'll second the Blu set from the UK. Excellent quality and I believe I paid $46 shipped. Both Amazon UK and Zavvi have it cheap regularly, and it plays on US players without a problem.

I always wanted a Dr. House/Dr. Cox (scrubs) royal rumble.

Rewatching this right now. One of the best tv shows around in my opinion.

Minor spoilers below:
























Pros: House's sarcasm, his friendship with Wilson and his overall dynamic with his team are why I watch. Also how he rips apart every patient (and pretty much everyone) and their beliefs to the simplest grounds possible to point out a lot of things that make us human.

Cons: I do think the show loses quality when the team changes (not as bad as everyone makes it out. I do like most of the team members except 13) and the cases can also seem repetitive but I watch for the above.

I'd highly recommend giving it a chance.

EDIT: The last couple seasons suck. Forgot about the other team change.
