Yeah, he has a-hole moments, but the character is so compelling and can’t be nailed down in black and white as a good guy or bad guy. If it was a cop show, he would clearly be an amazing villain. But because the show is about him, and so masterfully done, you get to see and feel all of his motivations, internal conflicts, everything that shapes his decisions and actions, molding who he is.
Ultimately, he is not the bad guy you love to hate. But rather the bad guy you love to love.
I find it mind boggling that someone could watch 1+ seasons of this and walk away - not be absolutely compelled to watch episode after episode while completely foregoing sleep, food and social commitments.
You @DapperDan, are a total enigma to me (meant with love and lightheartedness, not mean and snarky .
