The Greatest TV Villains of All Time

The Greatest TV Villains of All Time

Evil takes many forms on television, and rare is the show that would be any good without it. After all, a memorable villain does more than provide someone for the main characters to punch, shoot, or wrestle into a pond in evening attire — they reveal the protagonists for who they are by demonstrating who they’re not. And let’s face it, they usually get the coolest lines.
