Agent Smith, Darth Vader, Hannibal Lector, Magneto, Maleficent, Nurse Ratched, Pinhead, Thanos, The Wicked Witch of the West— some of the baddest baddies of all time! Today's Halloween special is all about great villains. What makes for a truly charismatic and memorable villain? When no one is looking, why do we secretly root for them? And does a great villain help to define an even greater hero?
We also discuss the rise of the modern anti-hero. Those guys and gals who generally fight for good, but seem to have a little bad in them (Beatrix Kiddo, Constantine, Dirty Harry, Elektra, Judge Dredd, Mystique, The Punisher, Tequila Yeun, Wolverine).
*Joining us for this episode is our friend Damion Howell (Beantown's Finest). Nobody loves a good villain more than he does.
