For the first time in seven seasons, Dr. Gregory House tries to access his softer side. Hugh Laurie returns to his Golden Globe-winning and Primetime Emmy Award-nominated role as television’s favorite irreverent M.D., who is now struggling to balance his new – and long awaited – relationship with Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein). The doctors grapple at mixing work and play as they attempt to maintain a real relationship, despite fears that the affair will affect their ability to diagnose patients. Hailed as “one of the smartest and intellectually bravest shows on television” by E! Online, “House” Season Seven arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on August 30, 2011 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
“House” Season Seven follows the Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital team (Robert Sean Leonard, Omar Epps, Jesse Spencer, Peter Jacobson, Amber Tamblyn and Olivia Wilde) as they continue to investigate and uncover new baffling medical mysteries involving everything from a religious zealot, to a professional bull rider, to a possible case of small pox. Adding to the intrigue and suspense, “House” Season Seven features phenomenal guest stars like Candice Bergen (“Boston Legal”), Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing), Jack Coleman (“Heroes”) and Michael Gladis (“Mad Men”). Catch up on all the drama with this five-disc collection featuring all 23 episodes, as well as behind-the-scenes interviews, episode commentaries and more!
