Additionally, House's brilliant but self-destructive personality was novel and captivating in the first season, and Hugh Laurie may just be the best actor on network television. What makes Laurie's acting even more incredible is the fact that the man has a full-fledged British accent, yet sounds more American on screen then most of his viewers. In addition to Laurie, Robert Sean Leonard also does a great job as House's foil (and best friend) James Wilson and Lisa Edelstein is equally impressive as Lisa Cuddy. House is not the storytelling masterpiece that the wire was and neither does it have the captivating plot devices of LOST or the action of 24.
