Villainous Villains: The TV Edition

televisionA few weeks ago, I wrote about my love for movie villains. Today’s post focuses on some of my very favorite bad guys – TV villains. One of the reasons why I adore TV villains is that exposure over a long period of time tends to allow for more multi-dimensional characters. Instead of one two-hour movie, the villain is often a constant throughout most or all of a television series (e.g., Red John on The Mentalist). The hero and the villain both evolve (and, sometimes, devolve) until, by the end of the series, each have changed because of their interactions. This longer time frame allows for an in-depth progression that simply isn’t possibly in a movie.

Heroic Heroes

superhero dogIn my last blog post, I wrote about the villains on the American Film Institute’s list of 100 Heroes & Villains. This week’s post focuses on the heroes. It is easy to imagine that all heroes in movies fly around in capes and tights, saving the world with superpowers and fancy equipment, but that isn’t always the case. Often, the hero is a regular person working against extraordinary odds to stand up for what they believe is right. Most heroes aren't perfect, but it is their flaws that make them interesting.

Do you agree with the 50 heroes AFI picked, or was your favorite left out?
