If there was ever a television series worth watching then it has to be House MD. This incredible medical drama series works because of great and deep writing, wonderful direction and cinematography, amazing background score and brilliant acting my all the cast especially the lead actor Hugh Laurie. Laurie is an incredibly talented person in real life and he plays an incredibly talented doctor, Gregory House, in this series who only relies on logic and reason, is shamelessly selfish and doesn’t mind manipulating even his best friend for his own needs. It’d be a silly attempt to make this list but after running behind critics and fan shows we’ve concluded that following ten episodes of House MD have something special.
10. Games (S4E9):
“Games” is an episode in season 4 of House MD. In this episode House has to make the final decision about who to keep in his team and who to fire. The episode stars Jeremy Renner, of the Hurt Locker fame, as punk rock guitarist Jimmy Quidd and delivers a good performance. There is a great guitar composition playing in the background towards the end of the episode that was composed and performed by Hugh Laurie.
