A House “supercut” video packing all 177 episodes of the popular US medical drama into just seven minutes has been uploaded to YouTube. Scroll down and click ‘play’ to watch it.
The tribute was compiled by a graphic designer from Cannes, France who goes by the enigmatic name of Mélanie. “The challenge was to include at least one clip from every episodes of the show (177 episodes),” she writes. “2 months of editing but it was fun 🙂 Hope you’ll enjoy!”
So far, Mélanie’s efforts have been rewarded with an impressive 850,000 YouTube views.
Hugh Laurie starred as Dr Gregory House, an ill-tempered but brilliant physician with a flair for diagnosing mystery illnesses, for eight seasons from 2004 to 2012. At its peak House was acknowledged as the most-watched TV show in the world.
Meanwhile, Laurie is listed in the 2011 Guinness Book of World Records as the highest paid actor ever in a TV drama, after earning a massive £250,000 ($409,000) per episode during later seasons of House.
