I am a huge fan of House, MD, not only because the writing is refreshing and clever (Cuddy: I have a case! House: Beer? )and the ‘hero’ is an anti-herowith serious flaws but a rugged, sarcastic way of caring — I love the show because there is a link between House and Sherlock Holmes – and you all know how much I love the British sleuth (no, not the recent ‘action’ movie…eek). Sir Arthur Conan Doyle fashioned the character of Sherlock after his mentor, an eminent surgeon in Britain: with House, MD (whose name reminds us of Ho(l)mes) we come full circle.
As I watched the Season Finale last night (go Huddy :)) I caught a bit of the making of the stage of the collapsed building. MMM…models! You can never get away from architecture.
PS. If you have never seen House in your life ignore the writing and enjoy the painting of the strange man above.
The Set Design in House’s Season Finale
If you like this sort of thing, here is a fantastic book, or three, on the relationshio between architecture and TV and movie set design.
