137. Villains

April 25th, 2016

Completing the diptych started with last week's episode on Heroes, Matt and Ed are talking about villains in film and TV this week. What makes a great villain? Is it compelling psychology? Physical attributes? Being created by David Lynch? They discuss all of these factors and more.
In addition to the main topic, Matt and Ed talk about the sudden death of Prince, anxiously anticipate the sixth season of Game of Thrones (and offer up in a baffling metaphor involving David Hasselhoff), and speculate about what Martin Amis' favourite free-to-play app is.

Correction: Ed at one point refers to the great character actor Ted Levine as Ted Divine, for which he apologises, even though it's arguably an improvement on his actual name.
