  1. It's so interesting how all of these villains are great in different ways - I love Regina whilst Joffrey and Umbridge make my skin crawl!

    1. There's definitely interesting differences and dynamics between all of them. :)

      Thanks for sharing, Clare!

    1. Thanks, Greg! It's quite a mix this week! :)

      And, to think that tv Governor kind of pales in comparison to his comic book counterpart...

  4. The only TV show I've watched on your list is Dr. Who. Guess I avoid villainous shows.

    1. Well, you can't go wrong with Doctor Who! :)

  5. OhMyGosh, YES! James Moriarty is without question the creepiest of the creepy. Ugh. That dude needed to be done with his reign of terror.

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland, Lauren. :)

  6. Oh man, you listed some FANTASTIC villains. I spent most of your list going "yup, yup, yup."

  8. Great list. I like all the differences in their villainy as well. Pennywise is just creepy. Umbridge is just the villain you love to hate. Sylar was complex. I could go on, but it's a great list!

  9. I loved to hate Joeffrey ! Everytime I saw him I wanted to throw tomatoes in his face ! The actor is awesome ~

    1. I was so close to adding Sauron or Sarumanm, but Gollum won out in the end! :)

      Thanks for coming over, Giovanna!

  11. I love your take this week :) I agree with so many of your choices. Lucifer from supernatural is amazing. I really hated him in the earlier series' but now he's quite amusing to watch. And I've never hated anyone more than Joffrey Baratheon.

    Great List

    1. Mishap Collins' take on the character is also pretty outstanding. :)

      Delete
  12. LOKI!!! He's one of my favorite villains of all time :) He's just so charismatic and funny (and not to hard on the eyes either :D) but still evil and it's just wonderful. Great list, Lauren!

  13. Wow big list this week! I've only watch a few seasons of GoT but I totally agree that Joffrey Bratheon is pure evilness!
    T-Bag is also horrible, can't stand him!
    But I do really like Regina/The Evil Queen. She is horrible at first, but as we get further through the series she redeems herself!

    1. I'm really enjoying Regina's arc myself! :)

  14. I wish I had thought of Joffrey and Gollum for my list! FANTASTIC choices. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

  15. These are some great villains! I especially love Sylar - I keep thinking I want to rewatch Heroes sometime soon but there's so many new shows to watch! :P

  18. Great list, though I think you cheated...so many villains. Chigurh, yes, yuck. McCarthy can really create a despicable character.

    ReplyDelete
  19. OH GOD JOFFREY. Definitely a character I hated, but the actor playing him is awesome and I can't absolutely hate him! XD

    Loki, Missy, and Moriarty are amazeballs, though. I love them as villains to bits.

    1. Yes, the actors for all of them do a great job!

  22. What a great list! I didn't put Regina on my list because she's trying not to be evil anymore (LOL), but I think she's a better villain than Mr. Gold! And I totally forgot about Benjamin Linus! I loved Lost.

  23. I LOVE The Master from Doctor Who! I need a re-watch of season 3. Regina's fun too. Joffrey is not fun but he's a terrific baddie:).

    1. You can definitely say that the Master gets a kick out of what he does.
