lefthanded guitar BS: 'Good' Bad Guys (29) RE: BS: 'Good' Bad Guys 30 Oct 17


I think one could sympathize with Greg. due to the writing,his success as a doctor, and the artful portrayal by
the actor (and real life musician) Hugh Laurie. But as he is a drug addict, pitilessly judgmental, and destructive at a felony level; I d see him more as an anti hero than a hero. And in fact, I think that any of the 'villains'. I favor are as much somewhat admirable, on some level, than purely evil; and are better defined as 'anti heroes.
Another I would pick (perhaps more to your definition of a bad guy)
is Zampano, the brutal Anthony Quinn character from La Strada( Fellini
movie). What unites all three is that they are selfishly ignorant of the
needs of most everyone they encounter, the constraints of common decency, but still are bound by the
limits of their place in time, and the misfortune of their own human condition.

Well then, how's about, Barnabas, the vampire from Dark Shadows? Bad enough
for the upcoming holiday? And Happy Halloween folks (I ve got almond joy bars for
the treaters)
