The 20 Best TV Villains of the 21st Century

Ask the average viewer to conjure up their idea of a TV villain, their answers might vary: Perhaps a spiked baseball bat-wielding maniac or a faceless Killer of the Week on a police procedural.

And then there are some villains that have existed in various forms on the small screen for decades: abstract ideas like alcoholism, technology, or ratings. As the line between reality and fiction start to blur and a non-stop entertainment news apparatus churns ever on, even people from off-screen within network power structures have frequently worn the black hat, from Ailes to Zucker.

Marvel’s Runaways Review: The O.C. meets the McU in this satisfying teen drama

Justin Cook reviews the first four episodes of Marvel’s Runaways, which debuts on Hulu on November 21st…

In another busy year for Marvel Television, where the division has brought us a dragon-fighting martial artist, a royal family of Inhumans and a New York City-centric superhero team-up, it’s the teen drama about six teenagers who realize that their parents aren’t who they once thought them to be that stands out above the rest, arriving like a refreshing, if imperfect, breath of fresh air in the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Hulu, coming off of September’s Outstanding Drama Series Emmy-win for The Handmaid’s Tale, makes its first foray into the McU with Marvel’s Runaways, which comes to us from the minds of Gossip Girl and The O.C.’s Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. Adapted from Brian K. Vaughn’s comic series first published in 2003, Runaways follows the lives of six diverse,

At this year’s New York Comic Con, Justin Cook chatted with the cast of Marvel’s Runaways. Check out their conversation below…

Later this month, Hulu will debut its first effort in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel’s Runaways. The show brings to life Brian K.

Marvel’s Runaways Season 1 Review

Four episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has expanded over the years, trying out different thematic masks like Captain America: Civil War‘s conspiracy thriller or Ant-Man‘s heist plot, while never straying too far from superhero genre archetypes. There’s always a hero, always a villain, always a few chatty sidekicks and a last-act throwdown; it’s not broke, so Marvel doesn’t appear too keen on fixing the formula anytime soon.

Runaways — the first McU project to debut on Hulu — is something similar, but also different. The show has the DNA of a superhero arc, with a gaggle of grumpy teens on the verge of discovering unknown powers at the same time that they discover they’re the offspring of maniacs, but it’s also unapologetically angsty. That’s probably unsurprising, given its creators, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, were the minds behind such

The Most Shocking, Grisly and Heartbreaking Deaths on TV — IndieWire Critics Survey

The Most Shocking, Grisly and Heartbreaking Deaths on TV — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What’s the most memorable death — scripted please! — you’ve seen on TV? It could be disturbing, crazy, heartbreaking, etc. Old and current shows fair game.

Tim Surette (@timsurette), TV.com

I can’t seem to scrape the death of Charlie in the Season 3 finale of “Lost” from my mind — I can remember every part of that scene so many years later. There was something about the way the scene was written and shot that was just perfect, and even though it was the perfect time to say goodbye to the character, it was still hard to let him go. Charlie died a hero, dudes. Driveshaft forever!

Dynasty's Liz Gillies on Playing 'Bad Girl' Fallon Carrington and Why the Reboot Is 'Not Your Mother's Dynasty'
The Carringtons are back, and the drama looks juicier than ever.

Ahead of the premiere of The CW’s Dynasty remake, People Now caught up with actress Liz Gillies, who plays Fallon Carrington in the revival of the ’80s classic primetime soap opera chronicling the ongoing feud between two wealthy families, the Carringtons and the Colbys.

Executive-produced by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (who helmed Gossip Girl and The O.C.), the revival is somewhat of a departure from the original — which Gillies, 24, applauds.

“We had to make a lot of changes, because if you go back and watch the original Dynasty,
