Sometimes the “bad guy” isn’t wrong.

There are basic tenants of narrative that we just accept. There is a good guy. There is a bad guy. The good guy has to grow and become good enough to triumph over the bad guy. Simple, right?


You see, this basic coding is so deeply ingrained in us that we just accept it, even if it happens to be wrong.

Truth of the matter, the bad guy/bad guy thing is more connected to what we are told than what is actually happening in the story.

This week we take a look at some bad guys who... well, who weren't bad guys.


Remember, you can be a part of the show any time you wild like. How's that? All you have to do is call or e-mail us. If you live in the US, or any place that makes calling the US easy, just dial 512-666-RANT and leave us a voicemail. We will read the Google Voice transcript and play your message. It's both funny AND informative.

If you live outside the US you can call us on Skype at The_Film_Thugs. You can leave a message, or someone might actually answer.

E-mail us at and we will read/play whatever you send us, or you can e-mail to be part of  an upcoming "Ask the Film Thugs" show, where we answer questions on any subject without having heard them first.

Also, we are on twitter @thefilmthugs and on Facebook and Vine.

You can also click on one of our sponsor links below and THEY will pay us. That's right. You won't have to pay a PENNY extra, and Amazon/Onnit/Teefury will give us a little taste.

Thanks for listening, and until next week...
