"So what? Audiences always think the villain is cooler than the hero is, anyway."
Till the age of about fourteen I believed in God, and believed that the accounts given of him were true. But I was well aware that I did not love him. On the contrary, I hated him, just as I hated Jesus and the Hebrew patriarchs. If I had any sympathetic feelings towards any character in the Old Testament, it was towards such people as Cain, Jezebel, Haman, Agag, Sisera: in the New Testament my friends, if any, were Ananias, Caiaphas, Judas and Pontius Pilate.
George Orwell, "Such, Such Were the Joys"

"Are zombies the protagonists of The Walking Dead? Because they're the ones I'm rooting for. They're the only ones who have a clear motivation, i.e. brains, and behave in such a way as to bring those desires to fruition. They're clearly the best written."
"Jimmy was the kind of guy who rooted for the bad guys in the movies"
—Henry Hill, Goodfellas
