You know they’re bad, or at the very least, definitely not operating within the boundaries of law-and-order. But there’s just something about them that makes you root for them to get away scot-free.
Maybe their motives are a reflection of real life that we deeply relate to. Maybe it’s us living vicariously through these fictional characters who are doing all the things we can’t do in real life. Maybe it's a good thing, to not be blinded by the typical stereotype of good versus evil. Or maybe it’s simply because the 'bad' guy is really, really ridiculously good looking.
Whatever the reason, we've got to admit that we find it really hard to hate the supposed criminals when we’re watching these shows:
1. Red Notice
If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!
Framed by the most wanted art thief in the world aka the elusive Bishop (Gal Gadot) for stealing a priceless artefact, FBI profiler John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson) is forced to team up with the 'second-best art thief in the world' aka Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds) in a globe-trotting adventure to 'steal' all of Cleopatra’s eggs before Bishop does and clear his name in the process.
Even with Interpol hot on their trail, we can’t help but cheer the stoic FBI agent and his wisecracking frenemy on as they embark on an international cat-and-mouse chase while trying to evade the authorities at every turn. Will they catch up to Bishop before Interpol crashes the party?
