TV's Best Bad Boy Tourney Day 2: Leverage Vs. Supernatural! Firefly Vs. Torchwood!

You know they’re bad, they’re bad, really really bad.

Okay, maybe not bad bad, but at the very least a little bit naughty. Yep, we’re talking about the four gentlemen entering the ring on Day 2 of TV’s Ultimate Bad Boy Bracket Tournament, a competition that celebrates 64 classic small-screen roles — from the heartbreakiest heartthrobs to the most deliciously dastardly criminals.

Today, you’ll have to choose between Supernatural‘s Dean Winchester and Leverage‘s Eliot Spencer, and then head to outer space for a showdown featuring Captain Malcolm ‘Mal’ Reynolds of Firefly and Captain Jack Harkness of Torchwood.

Every day for the next month, we’ll kick off a new set of matchups in a single-elimination format that will whittle our field of 64 down to one ultimate champ. So make sure the right choice is made by heading down to our polls to vote for your favorites (Round 1 voting will be open for 72 hours), and hit the comments to justify your picks.

If you’re wondering what criteria we used to pick our players, we cast our net rather wide — including fellas who are dark and a little bit dangerous, truly good guys with naughty, maybe even promiscuous streaks, and actual evildoers who are nevertheless tough to root against. (We also put a cap of two cast members per show for the bracket, which meant some fan favorites had to warm the bench this time around.)

Now ready, set, vote!

  1. DEAN… ALWAYS DEAN!!!!! :D He falls under the “truly good guy with naughty, maybe even promiscuous streak” category

  2. (I don’t even know who the other two are???)

  3. Melody Paris says:

    Dean vs Elliott is just cruel!!!

  4. AnnClau says:

    They shouldn’t put cable show’s characters against network’s in the first round. Now Eliot will lose.

  5. Kristi says:

    Jack vs Mal? That is ridiculous! Jack won’t win even though he’s easily the bad boy in comparison to Mal. This will go by popularity, not by who is actually the baddest.

  6. Renee says:

    This would have been a titch more difficult if it was Christian Kane as Lindsey…

  7. Becki says:

    Are you kidding?? Eliot would kick Dean’s ass in a heartbeat! Don’t get me wrong, I love them both, but Dean’s MO is surviving getting his ass beat. Apparently 66% of the audience didn’t watch the end of the Big Bang Job.

  8. Linda says:

    Dean all the way. This was a toughie, but Dean is such fun, with badass on the side, a winner every time. Plus Jensen is just one talented actor.

    I absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for.
    can you offer guest writers to write content available for you?
    I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write regarding here.
    Again, awesome web site!
