Is there a crazy doctor in the house?

So it turns out that the title character in Fox's new medical drama House is, in fact, Hugh Laurie (looking kind of like he's doing a Xander Berkeley impression), and not some American actor who kinda looks like Hugh Laurie. She Who Must Be Obeyed was right, and it means we'll be giving the show a chance tomorrow night. I just hope it doesn't make the same mistake previous crazy doctor shows like Chicago Hope and Gideon's Crossing did, namely, creating a fascinating and multi-layered central character of dubious stability and then surrounding him with a cast of intensely boring people who suck all of the drama out of the show whenever they're on-screen. Adam Arkin, I'm looking at you.
