Rolling Stone are an excellent, distinguished publication and have been since it was founded in 1967. However, like any other publication compiling an ambitious list about TV or movies, their final choices are going to cause widespread debate. This week, they released their 40 Greatest TV villains of all time and, while we commend some of their inclusions, it’s a dubious list to say the least.
It’s good to see that Marvel and Netflix’s excellent villainous incarnations of Kilgrave (David Tennant) and Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) at 40 and 26 respectively, while it’s also refreshing that Bobby Carnavale’s Gyp Rosetti features in 12. However, it’s not so much the characters in the top 10 we have a problem with, it’s the placing of it.
Their Top 10 is as follows:
10. Catwoman, ‘Batman’
9. The Borg, ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’
