More interesting is a peek at the “House Divided” teaser sequence narrated by director Greg Yaitanes. Featuring a story about a deaf teenage wrestler, the episode takes a look (not necessarily accurate) at deaf culture played against the backdrop of House really beginning to fall apart after Kutner’s suicide—and preparations for Chase’s bachelor party. But the teaser takes place in a high school wrestling tournament, and Yaitanes look at the casting of the episode and the elaborate setup of the teaser gives us an insider’s peek at production values of those little and often elaborate pre-credits sequences.
Also an interesting behind the scenes peek is an interview with the casting directors for the series. They talk about casting for the show, including Hugh Laurie’s, as well as hiring the guest cast. There is also a featurette on Cuddy’s long quest for a baby, and bits about “Huddy,” featuring a nice interview with Lisa Edelstein.
The House season five DVD set is certainly something I’d recommend for series fans to prep for season six, who will now be able to clear their DVRs and hard drives to make room for the next season. And one lucky reader of this space has actually won a copy of the DVD...(insert drum roll): Casey Stoner of Seattle. Congratulations Casey! The DVD will go out sometime next week. Enjoy—and thanks everyone for entering the giveaway!
Season six begins September 21 with a two-hour season premiere. More about that next week, but in the meantime:
