TV Afficionado, help please! Invasion or House: S2?

Hey everybody,
I'm writing in to ask for help.
I've only seen a few episodes of Invasion and kind of liked what I saw, and then, I've only seen season 1 of House. That was fun, but a bit repetitive.

Which would you say is the better buy? The better show?

Any input is appreciated.

well, normally I would recommend House s2, but since you said you thought s1 was repetitive, well s2 won't be any different for you. So, I'm going to recommend Invasion.

I like both shows a lot and plan on getting both of them on Tuesday.

Thanks guys. I'll take that into consideration.
I remember House being repetetive but also being witty and at times really interesting.
I'm in a bind...and maybe I'll actually get both.
Thanks again.

I have not seen Invasion but am a huge fan of House. Season 2 is also somewhat repetitive in that many episodes follow the problem, analysis, treatment that won't work, patient gets worse, then discover the problem for real. However season 2 goes deeper where season 1 left off- with House's relationship with his ex-wife and her new husband, tensions between the doctors, and epsidoes that are different from the typical season 1 episodes. I think it gets wittier and is at least just as funny. The writing is first-rate. Hope it helps.

Yes, that did help. Thanks a lot Grad. Glad to see they improved on some issues...
It's a tough choice, but I may have to get both like I said.
Anyway, thanks again.

FYI, if you can, pick up Invasion at Target on Tuesday (tomorrow) as they have an exclusive bonus disc that will likely not last long.

and House season 2 is supposed to come with a $5 gift card at Target, while supplies last.

I'm in a bind aswell, hoping someone that watched Invasion could help me out. I like buying complete series on DVD, but I really hate it when the show doesn't end. Lots of shows that are released as 'The Complete Series..." usually ends with a typical season finale cliffhanger, or they have an extra episode shot just for the set to close up the show... What's going on with the Invasion DVD in this aspect?

Thanks a lot Garmonbozia.
I guess I'll just sneak the Invasion bonus disc and buy House with the gift card at target.

And John Slider, supposedly, Invasion ends in a really bad cliffhanger.
Not bad as in quality, just really suspenseful.
That's been driving me away as well...
