    Are there any better villain names than Snidely Whiplash and Wile E. Coyote?

    Alas, someone agrees with me. He was diabolical in with such a calm manner.

    He certainly does seem to be my most likely choice...

    I had just wrapped-up that one. I hope the rest isn't all downhill. Never had premium channels. So, now that I remembered to check Netflix for anything past Season 2, and saw it all available on there, I figured I'd better binge before it gets taken off...

    Lex Luthor - Smallville

    I mean Michael Rosenbaum just put so much depth to the character. Watching Lex's fall from grace over 7 seasons really made the show work.

    I love Lithgow! He's easily one of the most versatile actors working today. He was amazingly good in Dexter.

    Yep. He started out as this totally serious cold war Russian spy, and ended up being the show's comic relief. :)

    The transition made the series a success it otherwise would not have been. The character was a pretty good villain, a comic villain to be sure, but a good villain nonetheless. Not great though, as per the subject of this thread, like say Ray Sharkey in Wiseguy, or Kevin Spacey and a bunch of other guys in that same series. Or some great villains in Crime Story.

    For me, Glory (Buffy S5) was probably one of the all-time villains. Probably part of the reason that I didn't think S6 and S7 were as good, because it was pretty much impossible to top her.
