Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • rocketscientist

    Hugh Dillon from Flashpoint. Absolutely. And why do I always sound it out as "Huge Dillon"

  • rocketscientist

    Also, Flashpoint has bonus Keith Mars for your viewing enjoyment.

  • WAldenIV

    Michael Rosenbaum as Lex Luthor on "Smallville" should be on this list.

  • Captain_Tuttle

    Damn! Quit menacing me! I'll tell you where the microfilm is. Just quit it with the menacing.

  • e jerry powell

    So Keith Mars, but not Elliot DiMauro?

  • Pookie

    The fuck is wrong with you Rowles, I mean do you know any goddamn thing about T.V. or bald fucking heads? Where the fuck is Hawk from “Spenser For Hire?” In case you're fucking blind, Red Forman has hair, I know because I'm looking at his picture.

  • Captain_Tuttle

    Hawk was one freaking menacing dude. And I loved the way he said "Spen-sah."

  • thaneofmemphis

    Baddest of the bad. He could chill a room just by unbuttoning his coat.

  • mona_sterling

    I must admit I was immune to Bryan Cranston's charms before he shaved his head and got all morally ambiguous. Now, I'm like....Rowr.

  • beetsarad

    Frank Reynolds. Uh doy.

  • AJ

    Hey Dustin! Remember when Pajiba did reviews of movies that weren't at the top of the box office? I love the occasional offbeat "Top 10" list as much as the next guy, but you guys should get back to reviewing those good indie flicks so we can revel in our hipsterdom when we recommend them to our buddies. Just a thought from a guy who's delusional enough to think you care about, let alone read, these foolish comments

  • XanderFan

    Buffy's Principal Snyder. Who'd want to walk in his shoes? Not his actual shoes, of course, because he's a tiny person.

  • kushiro -

    On Breaking Bad, being bald (or buzzcut real short) seems to be shorthand for "this guy is a badass".

  • Megan

    I know what you mean. I was watching the show last night and the only male character who isn't bald is Saul, aka the whiny pansy. (I guess you could count Walter Jr, but he's window dressing nowadays.)

  • Arran

    Keith Mars isn't menacing. Keith Mars is a delight.

  • Maguita NYC

    So is Charles Gunn! Just because one belonged in a gang of misfits, and protecting innocents from vampires, that one is automatically considered menacing. The kid was rather cute!

  • Mr_Zito

    Broyles? Broyles??? Shame on you, Dustin! What did you learn when you went into the Terrace at two in the morning
    to conduct field interviews? What valuable information did we acquire
    from this situation? I.I.D. is gonna be on all three of you by
    afternoon. If you don't get a story straight by then, you're gonna have a
    file thick enough to see the light of a trial board. Now, tell me, who
    cold-cocked the kid? Why?? No, Officer Pryzbylewski, he did NOT piss you off. He made you fear for your safety and that of your fellow officers

  • AngelenoEwok

    Aw. My dad is bald, and he is the polar opposite of menacing. He's more like an awkward teddy bear that just wants to make everyone happy and avoid conflict. A hairless, awkward teddy bear.

  • Withnails


  • Boothy K

    Broyles! Broyles! Broyes!

  • Puddin

    Errr, where's Tony Soprano? I hate being that person who gets all invested in a list ranking mean bald guys on tv, but I's Tony Soprano.

  • Maguita NYC

    Besides, it's not all BALD men on that list, some are merely balding.

    Therefore the unrelenting spook factor of one menacing Arthur Mitchell should be up there. Waaay up there.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Is there a bigger "menace" than Larry David?

    (or George Costanza, for that matter)

  • lowercase_ryan

    the one who knocks is far more menacing than the one who annoys.

  • celery

    And the least menacing bald head belongs to Craig Pelton.

  • GwenBear

    Honorable mention for Hooch? He's only bald sometimes, but he's ALWAYS crazy. Seriously. Hooch is crazy.

  • emmelemm

    Can you fly, Bobby?

  • thaneofmemphis

    Where's Mike the Cleaner?!?

  • lowercase_ryan

    Give Pop-Pop your hair!

  • zeke_the_pig

    For a second I thought you were talking about Magnitude.

  • lowercase_ryan

    you disappoint me.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Pop-Pop gets a Pop!Pop! ?

  • jM


  • Three_nineteen

    I think I will bookmark this post and just link to it for the next Pajiba 10.

  • nerdnamefixer

    Picard, not Piccard.

  • A bazillion times. +1 xoxo, Star Trek Fangirls Everywhere

  • Lipton

    John Luck Pickard? Is there a John Luck Pickard here? I'm looking for a John Luck Pickard.
