Dr. House inspires wit and quick thinking. Always looking behind the curtain to see what is /actually/ going on.

One of my favourite series'. However, I believe that quite a few of the episodes are unsuitable for a younger audience and a a lot of the crude remarks and quick-witted responses from Dr. House will go over younger viewers' heads.

House M.D.

This show is on FOX so you need to expect a pretty dark show and they deliver perfectly. If your kids are younger but want a medical show try Scrubs the show is tamer and there is a character just like House, Dr. Cox they are almost the same. Dr. House is a doctor who handles cases no one else can so it can be very graphic cases at times and there are graphic back stories like a episode in season 7 its a porn star but they dont go in great detail only a small clip of sound from House´s computer but nothing is shown. Language wise Ass, Bitch, and S--- every once in a while and for a while a character is called Cutthroaght bitch. The language is very infrequent. There is a decent amount of gore so don´t eat while watching. Sometimes they go into a inside of the body scene which is like a X-Ray in Mortal Kombat X its very cartoon like. Drug use is high but this is a medical show but House pops Vicodin 40 times a episode but it cuts down after a couple seasons. Also there is cocaine and booze are consumed and shown. House handles real life issues like teen pregnancy which is a huge problem and is a great family show. In the end this is one of the best FOX shows for the ages 10/10

Good for adult audiences, kids, not so much

Tons of inappropriate behavior, cheating, lies, sex, drinking, drugs, prison, and talk of suicide. Just finished the entire series, would not let anyone under 16 watch by themselves. There is a lot that should be explained to kids as its happening. Lots of blood guts and gore along with real world situations. Of course House is brilliant, definitely NOT a good roll model. Over all, great for adults.

Seen every episide

It's a medical drama so lots of gore. There's cheating, lying, sex, hookers, pills, alcohol, the works. On the flip side it's intelligent and witty. The bad behavior isn't glamorized which I like. Our younger kids watch it with us (ages 10 and 13) sometimes and they are fine. I rated it 15 for when a kid could watch it unsupervised.

Mayra, M.D.

AY MAYRA. House is and always has been one of my favorite shows of all time ever sense I first saw it. But House is a very immoral person, so that's why I'm rating it Pause 12.

Yep,it's an OK show.While some episodes are exicting and keep ya on your toes,some episodes are WAY TOO CREEPY.

An ok show, but can disturb some people!

The only reason I like this show was because I liked the beginning of each episode, to see what health problem there is, and who will have it! After that, I would change the channel sometimes, if it gets boring. Dr. House is actually pretty funny, coming up with these witty one-liners, and he does an excellent job for doing the American accent! If you are a doctor show fanatic, then this is your show, but I think it's off the air now. Just watch the re-runs!
