I'd watch it, but I have a few issues with it:
1. The medical stuff is too rediculously unreal, and "bullshity" that even someone like me who knows nothing about medicine can see that. I mean, I saw one episode where this girl had a TUMOR that made her fatty tissue (ie: tits) burst into flames and burn her... I'm not shitting you. If it's supposed to be campy and unrealistic, then their doing a very bad job of making me think that they know it and are winking at me. Honestly it just feels likey they don't know what the hell their talking about, and really don't care. If you're going to blatently fly in the face of medicine/science, at least have a good reason for doing so.
...what season, which episode? I don't remember anything remotely like that.
2. Everyone besides Hugh Lauri is either a) boring b) an idiot or c) non-existent. Every time Hugh Lauri opens his mouth, it's a party in a can... but every time his trap shuts, the show sucks.
Hugh Laurie is amazing, but I'll always think of him as Berty Wooster.... "I say, there, Jeeves!"
The show is not just about House being an ass, if you didn't notice.
