ABOUT THE BOOK Season 5 of the hit Fox medical drama series House follows the life and times of the brilliant but sociopathic Dr. Gregory House as he and his medical team solve difficult and life-threatening cases at the fictional Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital in New Jersey. The fifth season of House provides some wonderful character-development and has a powerful finale. As a television series, House has been entertaining as a medical drama, mystery, and even a comedy. The medical terminology is relatively accurate for a one-hour television show compared to the faux science of CSI. Each episode of House is a mystery where the medical staff must locate the clues and find the diagnosis before time runs out for their patient. Sometimes even knowing the diagnosis is not enough to save the patients life. Most of the comedy comes from Houses need to undermine authority or knock people off their high horse when he feels that one deserves it. And to House, they always deserve it.
