5 Things Friday: 5 of the most Villainy Villains on Television

Happy Friday! Pardon my temporary radio silence of yesterday, but I am back in action today with some villains on the small screen that was excellently done. Enjoy!

King Joffrey Baratheon – Game of Thrones

Joffrey

The expletives that come to mind to describe this rugrat cannot be repeated on this blog. I am pretty sure the internet will break if I truly describe him, so;

$#@$#@$@%^$#!!!!

Plainly put, he is cruel and weak and a coward hiding behind his mother’s skirt, a little incest-bred shithead without any morals.

I HATE HIM. I can admire villains if they serve their own purpose, but he isn’t serving anyone but himself. He has no pride for his Kingdom except what it can offer him.

Red John – The Mentalist

 Simon Baker the Mentalist

I was apprehensive to start Mentalist season 6 because I would have been so unimpressed if they did not reveal Red John. These fears were unfounded because the build-up during season five and the first few episodes of six was brilliantly done and when they finally showed him I was truly impressed with how it went down.

I will not reveal his identity because I do not suck that way, but Red John is one of the most brilliantly created villains ever. He is intelligent and capable of staying incognito, and has a finger in many law enforcement pies that keeps him in the loop. He is also one of the few people that have ever been able to play a game with Patrick Jane, and pulled one on him many times. Red John, ultimately was so surprising and incredibly well played out, and the man himself was highly entertaining.

The Yellow eyed demon – Supernatural

I have some beef with this guy – if he hadn’t killed Sam’s mom, Sam wouldn’t have become such a whiney brat and Dean would have had a much less infuriating life. BUT, without the YED, Supernatural wouldn’t have been because John Winchester would never have started hunting.

I liked the YED, how he had such big plans and how he worked over spans of years – he never rushed his ideas and waited patiently for Sam to grow. He always stayed in the shadows and was so difficult to find and Sam and Dean’s hunt for him was very frustrating at stages. He was the perfect antagonist right up until he was killed.

Klaus Mikaelson – Vampire Diaries

 Damon and klaus

I know plenty of people see Vampire Diaries as a wimp-show, but there are moments that are actually highly entertaining and scary. The first season was really well done, but the inclusion of Klaus Mikaelson in season two was absolutely fantastic. He is such an entertaining, layered and smart-ass villain, and his development from the cold and cruel goal-orientated hybrid to something a bit more lovable was one of the best plot developments of the story.

Victoria and Conrad Grayson – Revenge

 conrad and victoria

Season one of Revenge was so gripping, and although they lost the plot a bit in season two, Victoria and Conrad Grayson remain despicable and compelling. They are both so self-serving and spoilt, and they are such a huge part in Emily’s broken psyche that you cannot help but hate them.

Who is your favourite villain? Feel free to drop a comment 🙂

    • Oh my God Melissa DO IT RIGHT NOW, IMMEDIATELY!! It is one of my all time favourite shows (just don’t, whatever you do, watch past season five). I hounded Natasha, I will hound you. It is worth it. What a brilliant show. And (besides having ridiculously good humour and perfectly placed drama) DEAN WINCHESTER IS FUCKING HOT.

      There. I have said my bit.

      PS: Fairest, I am sorry, I see it put this comment where it did not belong at the bottom.

      • Ok I will check it out !! I trust your taste for sure. I watched the first 30 min of the first episode and the day I was watching it I had to leave so I turned it off. I’ve been questioning whether or not to go back to it! So I def will then! Thanks Zoe!

      • Melissa, I really recommend you watch it because Zoë will hound you relentlessly!

        It is a fantastic series and so well done.

        No worries Bestie!

  2. Well, we all know I branded Joffrey a MFC, so we know where I stand hahaha.

    I love how you avoid Red John spoilers, so thoughtful!

    This list is impressive. Azazel was a bastard, with you there.
