1. “House” 

A show about a doctor with a painkiller addiction, no filter and no respect for authority sounds like a train wreck worthy of watching already, but when you consider that he is also a mentor at a teaching hospital, it is impossible to look away. Hugh Laurie stars as the cranky Dr. Gregory House, whose hospital antics almost outweigh his genius in diagnosing the craziest of medical mysteries. Along with a team of medical experts, House takes on the medical cases other doctors cannot solve, but he does so while attempting to avoid the patients. “House M.D.” had eight seasons with 177 episodes spanning a little more than eight years. Though it ended in 2012, the zingers and shenanigans of Dr. House have not aged. – By Wes Terrell

Ever since Chanel and other designers embraced sneakers into their collections, people have incorporated the style into their wardrobes. Continue reading
