Entourage - Ari Gold You could argue that other Entourage characters - like movie star Vincent Chase - are baddies too, but the definite show stealer of Entourage has got to be Ari. By normal standards, I wouldn't necessarily call Ari physically hot (maybe I'm wrong), but his character certainly elevates him to that hot baddie level. His witty scathing remarks (does Ari ever lose an argument?) and general fearlessness to do whatever it takes to get his clients what they need is just undeniably...hot. True Blood - Eric Northman Why is Eric a hot baddie? Watch this clip . From the moment this guy made an appearance on True Blood , 2 things were very clear: 1) Eric is trouble. 2) Eric is smoking hot. Eric oozes confidence; vampires and people alike walk into Fangtasia and are drawn to Eric (as we overheard a guy's thoughts in one TB episode: "He's so powerful. He's so beautiful. Just walk up there and offer yourself to him!"). However, because Eric is such a big deal, he must summon you first if you wish to speak with him. A fun tidbit: Eric is played by actor Alexander Skarsgard (son of Stellan), who was voted the sexiest man in Sweden 5 times! Desperate Housewives - Edie Britt When I'm a 40+ year old woman (which if you were wondering, I am not), I imagine that Edie is the sort of woman that I'll be jealous of. Edie Britt is the one that everyone is secretly jealous of...because for an "old" lady (I know, 40 isn't actually that old), Edie is still smoking hot. However, on Wisteria Lane, Edie is also a source of controversy and trouble. She's always on the outskirts of the inner-circle, because frankly, she can't be trusted. In Edie's defense, she is generally upfront about the fact that nothing or nobody comes before Edie Britt. She's arguably the strongest woman (mentally) on Wisteria Lane, which is pretty hot also. Friday Night Lights - Tim Riggins We love Tim Riggins (of Friday Night Lights , one of the Top 10 Shows You're Not Watching ) because he's a baddie with a heart. Don't get us wrong...he's still a baddie, because spoiler alert he did sleep with his paralyzed best friend's girlfriend and regularly shows up at football practice/school drunk. However, Tim Riggins also does thoughtful things like protect the coach's daughter from making bad decisions at parties when drunk...at his own expense. Dexter - Dexter Morgan This one might be the most controversial, but to me, Dexter's style of vigilante justice (murder included) is pretty hot. I actually also find Michael C. Hall's character of Dexter to be reasonably adorable as well. Conclusion: I'd date Dexter. Am I deranged? Don't care. Think we've missed some hot baddies? Share 'em in comments! Back to Part 1 2008: Year in Review
I was as surprised as anyone when, last night on Dexter only one person died! And it was the guy threatening Dexter's life! A happy ending and relatively un-dramatic ending was the last thing I expected, especially after there were so many rumours that as many as 3 people would be killed! I'm not sure that this is such a bad thing though, and am reassured by this Q&A with Clyde Phillips that the darkness and suspense that we love so much will return next season.

I can't wait to see how he gets himself out of this...should be interesting!
"I didn't want to be that person who ruined Twilight ," Melissa Rosenberg said one recent afternoon, days before the movie she scripted earned $70.6 million in its first weekend. That success has validated, at least financially, her decision to tread lightly on the Stephanie Meyer novel that provided the well-loved source material for the film. Rosenberg, an executive producer on Dexter whose writing credits include Step Up and The O.C. , said she aimed to adapt the book rather than using it as a "jumping off point." "We knew that if we were true to the book, if we honored it, fans would come with us," she said. The novel's more than 500 pages had to be condensed to around 100 pages of script. Rosenberg also had to make the interior monologues of the main character, Bella (Kristen Stewart), more cinematic. "How do you externalize Bella's experience?" Rosenberg asked. Rosenberg's changes resulted in pivotal scenes in which Bella and her vampire love, Edward (Robert Pattinson), talk in her room, cuddle, and think deep thoughts â while caught up in the fevered intensity of first love. read more from: TvGuide
