I am scraping my “Song of the Week” and replacing it with this…a poll that I will post once a week on somewhat random-ish type things.
So, for the first of my top ten polls…
Who is the best rogue?
By definition, rogue is: An unprincipled, deceitful, and unreliable person; a scoundrel or rascal. 2. One who is playfully mischievous; a scamp. 3. A wandering beggar; a vagrant.
Well, we all know the line from The Empire Strikes Back where Han Solo believes Leia thinks he is a “scoundrel”. Sam Malone and Kahn, likely the only time those two will ever get mentioned together, are both playfully mischievous at times. How about the Starbucks?…and yes, there are two as Starbuck was a ‘he’ in the original Battlestar Galactica, but a ‘she’ in the reimagined version. Jayne Cobb was not the only rogue on Serenity, but likely the best choice for this poll. How about the Prince of Thieves from the old Xena series? What about Big Trouble in Little China’s Jack Burton? Even Hell Boy is a rogue when you think about it. This will not be a landslide, either, if ole’ Captain Jack has anything to say about it.
So of the list of ten, who do you pick? Enter your pick in the poll below from this lot…even if I missed one which no doubt I missed a few obvious ones, but let me know about them in the comments.
