House, M.D.

Control - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: As House describes the lady's symptoms, in the front shot Chase has a small book/pamphlet in his hand. The camera changes to a side shot in the middle of House's description and suddenly the book is on the table and no longer in Chase's hand. This happens right in the middle of House's line and Chase doesn't make any quick movements to account for this discrepancy.

Wilson's Heart (2) - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: Throughout both parts of season 4's finale ("House's Head" and "Wilson's Heart"), Amber is always shown getting hit from the back and sitting facing House, so her seat's back is to the windows. Yet the last time we see the accident, that is, right after she took the flu pills, she is definitely sitting neatly sideways to the window (i.e. the seat is perpendicular to it) and getting hit from the right side. It most likely was done for artistic reasons, as the back shot, shown multiple times, makes for a very neat effect, with her blonde hair flowing around her like sunrays.

Dying Changes Everything - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: Right at the end, when House is apologizing to Wilson, watch the bright spot on the TV frame on the wall behind House. In the long shots, the spot is right at the top left corner of the TV. In the close-up shots, the spot is closer to the middle. This is visible every time the shot changes from long to close-up. Light spots do not move depending on the position if the viewer. The only way a light spot changes is if the light source changes position or the reflecting surface changes position (try reflecting a flashlight beam off a mirror and then, leaving the flashlight and the mirror alone, move around. The reflected spot of light will not change position).

Before the first shot change, Taub is reaching for the basin, however, after the change he is moving away without enough time to move the basin. The shot changes again and the patient is now in the bed with Adams holding the basin under her mouth. There is not enough time in that shot change for her to move from the foot of the bed to in the bed.

Trivia

Hugh Laurie auditioned for the role as Dr. Gregory House in his hotel room bathroom in Namibia. He was rehearsing his role for the film The Flight of the Phoenix and claimed that the bathroom was the only place with enough light. He also apologized for his appearance on tape before the audition as he'd just come back from filming. The fact that House has a somewhat scruffy and unkempt look, particularly his constant five o'clock shadow, has been attributed by creator David Shore to Laurie's appearance in this audition tape.
