Has anyone purchased the DVD of the first season?

I was speaking about House, I should have removed the first part of the quote I quoted..

I don't think Bones will make it past mid-season..

I did, and it's a huge disappointment because it isn't non-anamorphic. It's letterbox widescreen. Why the hell Universal released it this way is beyond my comprehension.

If you want the first season collection, I recommend waiting until they release the non-anamorphic version.

Flicks? Here's

There was a short blurb about this in the minneapolis startribune. It said that they rushed to get the DVD out before Season 2 started, and that was why it was non-anamorphic. Whatever.

From what I've read, it's a simple matter of checking a box that says "anamorphic" during the encoding process.

I'm guessing the guy that encoded/mastered this DVD set was the same guy that also did Revelations, because that was non-anamorphic as well. His resume is probably on monster.com right now.

I love the cover story though -- "we had to get it out before season 2 started"...please.

Wasn't the first season of CSI released in 4:3? One of the biggest HD shows was. It's amazing how stupid some of these studios are.

Yes it was -- and the same thing with season 1 of The O.C. As I recall, the studios were making a claim the shows were composed for 4:3, so that was actually the correct aspect ratio. That very well may be correct, but still, I think you'd be hard pressed to find someone who preferred the 4:3 version ...

No, I meant Hugh Jackman. We were talking about convincing American accents, so I threw his name into the ring. Hugh Laurie is British, Jackman is an Aussie.

Another great show last night.

Did anyone notice that they never looked at the lawsuit papers and just assumed it was from the main patient? I thought it could have been from the "get whitie" guy.

It's obvious the ex has some influence on House's softer side. He never would have said those things to Cutty otherwise.

I thought the exact same thing.

Love how with a black patient Foreman gets all worked up over House's methods, but House has done essentially the same thing every single episode. Never bothered him before past rolling his eyes. Not to mention Foreman had the same attitude with the patient the day before. Typical racist BS, even in fiction.

Hey, speaking of Cuddy....didn't they come right out and say (in season one) House & Cuddy dated at some point in the past? Now yesterday it's all coy. Am I just remembering wrong?

I was thinking the same thing, normally Foreman just lets things like that roll. It may be setting something up in future epps (pun intended).

I could have sworn that was mentioned at the beginning of season one.

I was thinking that house went to him and told him to sue, because he knew it would make cuddy feel better.

Didn't think about it that way.

I was rolling whne they broke into Cuddie's place and House says "I betting on Pink Thongs" then he pulls one out.

Not to mention the key under the flower pot.

Ah, but you forgot..if you want the REAL good stuff, you've also specifically got to ask for the Republican meds - which HOUSE wrote for.

Commander in Chief is a good show so far. I think this might be Gena's perfect role. An independent VP who is now the President after the Right-wing sitting president died from heart failure. Honestly I feared she'd be a flaming liberal as we have the West Wing for that. Time will tell. I'll record it while watching House in the future.

Well just think, since baseball is taking over the month, that means more new episodes of House in back to back weeks instead of 2 new episodes and then 3 reruns.

I was all set last night to sit down in the theater and watch the latest episode of House. Until my wife told me that we don't get any new ones until November and that Baseball screwed us up. Crap, I forgot about that.

Instead of checking out shows I am not going to be leaving House for when it comes back on, I watched a special on Discovery HD Theater on Bora Bora. Wow, I need to win lotto so I can go there!

Opinions sought: Did you prefer the "Cameron is uncomfortable around House because she likes him" plotline, or do you favor the "Cameron hates House like most people do" approach?
