I take issue with both of your statements, and I'm a fan of both properties.
Pulp Fiction is a bit too hip for its own good, but is a great film. House showcases Hugh Laurie's fantastic talent and charisma, but essentially is a series of the exact same episode over and over again.
For those who haven't seen House and want a quick summary of every show, ever:
Patient comes in to hospital.
House grouchily snipes at his team, his boss, and his best friend, but not the patient . . because he hasn't met the patient yet.
Someone tells House what the patient has. House questions his team about possible causes. House disregards his team, comes up with a theory.
Theory is disproved through multiple tests. Previous step is repeated at least once.
House snipes at his team some more. One (or more) quits and/or tries to sleep with him.
House finally meets with patient. Determines patient and/or patient's family is a big fat liar.
House is in the middle of insulting someone when he gets a gleam in his eye, as the last amazingly clever insult he said is directly relevant to the patient case.
House sweeps into patient's room, announces what the real problem is, and leaves. Flip a coin -- Heads its a problem no one considered before, tails it is House's original diagnosis finally proven to be true.
House has an emotionally significant moment at the end of the episode. Credits roll.
Keep in mind I LIKE this show.
