House proves that watching someone being a douchebag is fun as long as they are saving lives and helping people by beaing good at their job.
Well, it's also the way he's portrayed by Laurie who I think manages to give House an ounce or two of humanity and humility "beneath the surface" and the way he is written to in that his db'ery usually flows from an ounce or two of truth between the lines.

He doesn't call someone an idiot or call them out on something senseless or not true, he usually calls them on something that IS true in the harshest way possible.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
