About House, M.D.
House, also known as House, M.D., was a critically-acclaimed American medical drama television series created by David Shore and executively produced by film director Bryan Singer. The Emmy and Peabody award-winning medical drama debuted on the FOX Network on November 16, 2004, and aired its last episode on May 21, 2012.
For eight years the show brought in people from around the globe, bringing intrigue and mystery in the form of unusual medical cases in a vein reminiscent of the mysteries solved by Sherlock Holmes. Furthermore, these cases were the catalyst for the discussion of philosophical and ethical issues and decisions, a lot of which were not left with a clear victor, but all of which revealed more and more of the character of each of the different doctors that comprised the team each year. In the end, while the team didn't completely understand (or appreciate) House's methods fully, the show gives a final hurrah as each of the members walks away with something they realize was the right thing to do after all. Although the mantra "Everybody Lies" is proven over and over again, the concept that "people never change, they only come up with better lies" is tested up until the last moments as the characters (and the show) drive off into an adventure left to the imagination.
Everything is challenged, nothing is sacred, and the most profound revelations of life can be found within the 172 hours of television given over the course of the eight seasons of pill-popping, dripping sarcasm, dark humor, and intelligent storytelling ever to grace the small screen of the living room (or large screen, if that may be the case, but then...everybody lies). This wiki is intended for your perusal to catch up, read, make new or more complete connections on various subject matter, or perhaps relive the funny if outrageous times given to us by actor Hugh Laurie and company.
Current Featured ArticleDr. Ron Simpson
Dr. Ron Simpson is an orthopedic and general surgeon at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital, and is also on the Board of Directors and the transplant committee. He is also responsible for the surgical intern program. He was portrayed by actor Ron Perkins. One of the most frequent recurring characters, he appears in nine episodes from Season 1 to Season 8. Only seven other characters who were not on House's main team appeared in more episodes.
Despite his frequent appearances, not a lot else is known about Dr. Simpson. His first name (which matches the name of the actor who portrays him) was not revealed until the beginning of Season 8. He appears to be both busy and respected. He deals with House as infrequently as possible, and tends to treat him with a mix of annoyance and feigned politeness. He is also straightforward with a "no nonsense" attitude towards all his work.
In Control, Dr. Simpson is the surgeon whose patient went mute after routine surgery on his anterior cruciate ligament..When House comes to him for an explanation, he is annoyed that House is bothering him and that House brought up the incident, which resulted in an increase in Simpson's malpractice insurance premiums. He denies the patient had high blood pressure or a stroke during surgery, and insists the patient had no sign of a cortical disease or Wernicke's encephalopathy. They had to settle the lawsuit for over $1 million because they couldn't identify a cause for the patient's loss of voice. ....
