Is the medical drama House MD accurate?

Download video Channel: Dr Hope's Sick Notes

How accurate is the TV show House MD and medical dramas in general compared to real life? I dust off my old DVDs and give it a watch.

I used to love this show as a medical student, so thought I'd revisit it knowing what I know now and see if it holds up!
