Breaking Bad. The Sopranos. The Wire. Contemporary TV is littered with the debris and destruction caused by the twisted actions of the darkest characters on our screens. They will kill, manipulate and do whatever is required to achieve their fiendish goals. The rise of the anti-hero has also seen the emergence of TV good guys who are actually bad guys. Characters that are so sadistic and cruel in their actions that they must surely be bad people, but we love them all the same. And to fight these anti-heroes are even darker, more twisted and sadistic antagonists. The result is pain, suffering and evil saturating the lives of characters throughout our favourite TV shows. Then theres the traditional bad guy, whos driving towards world domination and shows no remorse their actions. Openly evil, cruel and with no good intentions at all they embody bad guy day and night. Also thrown into the mix are antagonists or characters who just pose a problem for our hero, heroine, anti-hero or main protagonist. They may not being trying to kill, but their actions are evil all the same. If they constantly make decisions that are illegal, immoral, unethical or they create suffering for others then I am deeming them bad guys. If they act bad, they are bad. And the badder - the better! This list is the countdown of the 10 best bad guys on our screens in this century.
