We are in the neo-golden age of TV, and with that comes the ability to watch great villains on a daily basis. Sure, there are many evil queens, dastardly super villains, heartless drug dealers, and cruel bullies for you to pay attention to, but it's the villains with a soft spot that are truly compelling and deserve our attention.
This list contains seven very diverse villains from varying genres of TV, who all fall in different spots along the good/evil spectrum. The one thing every character on this list has in common is a soft spot that makes us sympathize with them, even if just a little.
