Dr. House’s faults? How much time do you have?
Let’s start with his attitude. He’s gruff, downright mean sometimes, arrogant, egotistical and NOT always right.
He’s a drug addict who lifts his addiction above his family, friends, lovers, and personal safety.
Disconnected from society, Dr. House chooses to be a spectator in life, rather than a true participant. He picks apart every aspect of humanity as if he isn’t one of us.
He likes mind games, enjoying pitting people against one another for sport. He will press personal “hot buttons” just to see what will happen next.
There’s so much to not like about the guy, so why in the world would we love Dr. House?
Because the show’s writers are brilliant.
First off, they created this inherently unlovable guy and made us feel sorry him. It is no easy feat to feel sorry for a perfect donkey butt. But we do, right? Why?
