Dr. Gregory House looks like a terrible role model. Despite this, in the popular television serial House, M.D., he is one of the most captivating modern characters on air. Dr. House is many things, and while he is a jerk, he is also a brilliant doctor. In nearly every episode, he manages to save a life with his unique type of thinking. So, we must ask ourselves, should we be more like House, minus the drug problem and cynical attitude? Is he a good teacher, and can we learn from his thought patterns? Should we even be learning from a television series that is often unrealistic, even dreamlike at times? The answers to these questions are almost as complex as House himself.
