Top 5 TV Villains That We Love to Hate

Following today's lineup of most watched TV series, fans can't help but admire and hate at the same time the series' antagonists. Whatever or whoever they may be or what their plans are, TV drama is just not the same if there are no characters from the dark. Below are the top 5 most evil villains of all time.

5.) Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum - Smallville) - Superman's best friend turned worst enemy. Manipulative, intelligent and the attitude of "get the job done at any cost", it's no wonder everybody around Smallville share a similar amount of hatred for this sleazy bastard.

4.) Theodore Bagwell (Robert Knepper - Prison Break) - one of the series most hated characters. With a sadistic attitude, he manipulated Scoffield into letting him join his escape plans. With a variety of crimes committed like: rape, assault, kidnapping, murder, and the works, T-Bag is definitely somebody you shouldn't cross paths with.

3.) Yellow Eyed Demon (Fredric Lehne - Supernatural) - one of my favorite villains. after murdering dean and sam winchester's mom, he follows the winchester siblings into a series of adventures which then leads to the unveiling of his plans for sam. twists and turns are his specialty so expect to get a twist of the story everytime he pops up (until the end of season 2)

2.) Bizarro (Tom Wellings - Smallville) - yet again from the series, Smallville. at the start and end of season 6, Bizarro jumps from one host to another until he reunites with a kryptonian host (namely clark kent) and finally assumes a full body. with a nasty reputation in the comic book series, no doubt Bizarro is definitely tops when it comes to TV villains. Can't wait for future smallville series.

1.) Gabriel Sylar (Zachary Quinto - Heroes) - TV's sadistic bastard of the day (he makes Tony from the Sopranos look like a schoolgirl). He steals the powers of every special person he comes across during the entire season 1, with no regards for human life (he even killed his mother and killed Alejandro, Maya's brother and got it on with Maya... that is definitely sick!) as long as he gets what he wants. Manipulative, smart, charismatic and evil personified, Gabriel Sylar is definitely one of the most evil characters in TV history.
