Yes, today was Hugh Laurie's 47th birthday.

That man is a genius!

I just felt like sharing that :)

He's a Brit and they invented Boohbah! OK, I'm just mad at him for the way they left you hanging at the end of the season finale on House MD.

Yes, but they also invented teletubbies, Doctor Who, the French Fry, Punch and Judy, blood pudding, and the cat.

You haven't convinced me yet, woozy.

However, Hugh Laurie's Bertie Wooster is not to be missed!

Haven't convinced you of what, dear?

So the Brits brought us Boobah, Hugh Laurie, and Barbara Cartland. And they've had running water for over ten years now.

I am in love with Hugh Laurie. But perhaps only as House, because I love House. Btw, USA started showing the series from the beginning tonight. Sunday's at 10 pm central, 11 eastern.

You have got to see him in Jeeves & Wooster, and in Black Adder.
You'll associate him with the word "la." :)

I've been telling y'all to watch House since Nov. 2004! You might be surprised to watch Hugh Laurie's other, older stuff, Battie, because of his British accent. What shocked me was listening to an interview he did, where he has a rather proper and modern upper middle class sort of British accent rather than the exaggerated ones he uses as a comedian. He sounds so thoughtful, and normal...

I was utterly shocked to go they other way and to see him in House the first time.

Here, Here!!!

"Jeeves and Wooster" is awesome! "BlackAdder" is pure genius!

"Fart... Fornication... SAUSAGE!!!"

As I don't watch network TV, and surprisingly I really don't miss doing so, I haven't seen House. Hugh Laurie aside, is it good?

Yes. Yes, it is if you like medical procedurals.

To quote hamano: HOUSE is to medical drama what MONK is to detective shows.

Yes, House is very good, Hugh Laurie aside. I do sometimes wonder if it would be the same without him, but the thought scares me so my mind goes onto more pleasant topics. Like the weather! I also wonder if Laurie has anything to do with the writing, or if Fox actually chose some amazingly witty writers that need no help. *smh* The show is hilarious, but in a non-Robin Williams kinda way.

I've taken to watching Penn & Teller these days. Showtime's cable filter is uh...really bad. ROTFL! I get a pretty clear picture and almost flawless sound...so, I go for it. Why not? :P Anyway, I'm rather enjoying the show. I could do without the loud cursing, but supposedly it's part of Penn's charm.
