House Season 5
Thursday 22nd October 2009
All is not well with egotistical, curmudgeonly, cynical, maverick, misanthropic, pill-popping, diagnostic genius Gregory House. Hugh Laurie returns to his Golden Globe-winning, Emmy Award-nominated role to suffer, torture, torment, and cure the apparently incurable in House Season 5. This must-have addition to the collection from Universal Playback releases on DVD from 5th October 2009, along with the box set House Seasons 1-5.
Grouchy but still strangely and seductively attractive, House constantly pushes new boundaries in medicine while dealing with emotional chaos, as personal and professional boundaries blur through the twenty-four gripping episodes from the compelling fifth season. Featuring guest appearances by eljko Ivanek (Damages, In Bruges, 24), Mos Def (The Italian Job, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) and Carl Reiner (Ocean's 11/12/13, Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid), House is the Emmy Award-winning series that critics raved is "a terrific show with an A-list cast and first-rate writing" (New York Post) and that audiences made the most-watched show in the world.
Including the milestone 100th episode, Season 5 picks up where Season 4 left off. House and Wilson have repaired their friendship in the aftermath of Amber's death, but House blames himself and believes Wilson blames him but is afraid to ask. Cuddy is fulfilling her dream of motherhood after adopting an infant girl. Foreman has started a relationship with Thirteen who continues to battle the deadly Huntington's disease that threatens to shorten her life dramatically. House and Cuddy continue to determine exactly what type of relationship they share if any. Wilson decides to leave the hospital, but is he really gone? Will he return? Will House change? Where will this fifth season take Cameron and Chase's relationship?
Many questions will be answered ... and many will not, as House Season 5 moves towards a series cliff-hanger to end all cliff-hangers ... that is, until Season Six.
