Favorite Villain: Michael Rooker aka Merle Dixon


One of the best villains on television, or movies for that matter, is Merle Dixon on “The Walking Dead.” The character is played by Michael Rooker.
In my opinion, Merle is just as villainous as J.R. Ewing. I think that the audience loves to hate both characters.
Neither of the characters were nice by any means. However, I think that Merle did have genuine love for his brother, Daryl. I’m sure that many of you have heard of Daryl, who is played by Norman Reedus.
I think that the fact that he wants to protect his brother is possibly his only redeeming quality. I also think that in spite of being a terrible human being, he somehow remains, dare I say . . . charming. Now that I think about it I think people have said the same thing about serial killers.

P.S. I broke the rules to take that picture. Just sayin. Totally worth it! 🙂

“Just a small town girl – living in a lonely world.” Concert tickets are practically essential. Musicals are the key to life. I like movies, music,books, and corny jokes.


  1. So here’s the thing with Merle, as loathsome as he was when he was revealed as a zombie and Darryl had to kill him, it broke my heart. When it was Andrea — I was THANK GOD she is gone. So that is how awesome Merle was.

    1. True!! I agree. I didn’t care so much about Andrea either way. She wasn’t as likeable, even though she didn’t do as many evil things. Thanks for commenting!
