One of the few shows on TV that hasn't gotten worse with time. Personally I adore House, it's an emotionally gripping show chock full of drama, comedy, romance, action and occasionally, a positive message in the end.
However, this show is far from kid friendly. I have two children, a daughter who's 8 and a son who's 1, obviously this show is completely out of the question for them. The show is full to the brim with intense situations, including sex, blood and violence. There is also heavy reference to drug use and addiction with the main character, House's addiction to vicodin and heavy drinking. There is a lot of swearing, which is never bleeped out words such as a$$, b!tch, [email protected]
, sh!t, and others are present, sometimes in large doses.
And most importantly, this is a MEDICAL drama, so be prepared for some up-close views of grizzly operations, injuries, etc.
Sometimes the show does end with a good lesson or moral to take away, but for young children, and parents of young children, the lessons learned will hardly mask the mature content. I'd rate this show on for teens 14 to 15 and older.
