16. Jim Profit, Profit
The world wasn’t ready for Jim Profit, a devious supervillain-esque executive consumed with sociopathic ambition. Profit ran for a mere four episodes in 1996 (out of eight filmed). In those four episodes, Profit engaged in all manner of corporate nastiness…and also killed his father and slept with his stepmother. Played with gleeful relish by a pre-Petrelli Adrian Pasdar, Profit was an early vision of a TV decade that would teach audiences to love the bad guy.
