Quote from: BritishHobo on July 01, 2022, 02:33:42 PMI know that it's meant to be a metaphor about faith, but that final season really did just leave me feeling that our heroes had been manipulated by an uncaring cunt into stopping a nice guy from doing something totally understandable. The show going "well he can't do it because the world will end" is such a weird conflict which never really bothers to acknowledge how horrible that is for the smokey boy to be cursed with. Odd for a show with so much to say about philosophy and helping people. They end up helping to perpetuate a cosmic injustice.
Quote from: dissolute ocelot on July 01, 2022, 12:21:16 PMI could certainly stand to see Homelander kill most of the good guys in The Boys. That show has a massively compelling villain and frequently annoying heroes.If you didn't want Skeletor to beat He-Man you're inhuman. There's a lot of kids' shows and films that pit insipid children or young adults against entertaining villains, like the 90s Sabrina the Teenage Witch, The Thundermans, Casper, most versions of Robin Hood and King Arthur, Torchwood, etc. And The Dark Knight Rises, in which locking policemen in a dungeon is meant to be a bad thing?

Quote from: Shaxberd on July 01, 2022, 03:18:16 PMYou've reminded me of how desperately I wanted Dick Dastardly to win the Wacky Races, just once, even though the whole point was that he could have probably won easily if he had just played by the rules instead of wasting all his time on elaborate attempts to cheat.I also very much wanted Gargamel to successfully catch and eat the Smurfs but did at least accept the cartoon probably wasn't going to go there, whereas I could just about convince myself there was a Wacky Races episode I hadn't seen where Dastardly won.

Quote from: Dark Sexy Dangerous on July 01, 2022, 11:45:23 AMI've found myself wanting to buck the writers' intent when you get a villain like Hannibal Lecter - the TV version, who, among other things, cuts a teenager's lungs out while she's still alive - and the writers clearly can't get enough of him and want to push him and our protagonist/anti-hero as gay icons. Hannibal is an incredibly compelling villain, but I'm not the sort of reprobate whose idea of escapism is going "Ah yes, quite right" at someone very brutally torturing, killing and eating 'rude' people.
Quote from: Pink Gregory on July 01, 2022, 11:45:38 AMI still think Warren is the most hateable antagonist in all of Buffy.The Master/Drusilla/The Mayor/Glory/The First are supernatural beings, fine, those are the stakes but you expect ancient supernatural beings to be evil.Adam is just terrible all round, so he doesn't count.But Warren is just a creepy little manipulative misogynist who gets a few breaks and thinks he's a master criminal and shows little if any remorse. They sort of try to do the 'evil misogynist' thing again with Caleb but I just found that tedious.Plus he sort of gets extra credit for the whole Andrew/Jonathan thing, even though it's not technically him.
Quote from: Endicott on July 01, 2022, 10:15:32 PMAl Swearengen in Deadwood. Sends Dan to murder a child in the 2nd (or is it 3rd?) episode, and yet. And yet.
Quote from: Kankurette on July 01, 2022, 10:08:28 PMETA: and Caleb was possessed by the First or had some kind of connection with it, wasn't he? So not exactly an ordinary human himself.
Quote from: bakabaka on July 01, 2022, 07:09:07 AMThe most obvious one is Michelle Gomez whenever she's the villain, from The Green Wing onwards. She stole the show from the very start when she was Missy in Doctor Who and proceeded to strut around with an air of "well, take it off me if you're big enough" for the rest of the series.
