One reason I'm not a big fan of House M.D., apart from how bloody predictable it is, (or was, back when I watched it) is that I think Hugh Laurie is absolutely wasted in a dramatic role. I best remember Hugh from his performance as Bertie Wooster opposite Stephen Fry's Jeeves and his Prince George in Blackadder III. Recently I found a treasure trove of clips on YouTube from A Bit of Fry and Laurie, the BBC sketch comedy show Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry put on in the 90s. You can find all of series 1 and lots of clips from all the other series there as well. Enjoy.
