[[caption-width-right:320:"[[Recap/SupernaturalS04E10HeavenAndHell You know, I haven't been up here]] since [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Poland '43]]. Truth is, I loathe it. It's chilly. No stink of blood or sizzle of flesh or the wet flap of flayed skin. I don't know how you stand it."]]

->''"[Gunther Lutze] was a black-uniformed strutting animal, whose function in life was to give pain, and like his colleagues of the time, he shared the one affliction most common amongst that breed known as Nazis: he walked the Earth without a heart."''

Television has evolved a lot over the years. It used to be that you couldn't even say the word "damn" on the airwaves. Now you've got entire cable channels where people can say anything they want. These looser standards have also made it that much easier to showcase [[CompleteMonster genuinely horrifying villains]]. These characters can be either recurring or, especially in the case of CrimeAndPunishmentSeries, [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters Of The Week]] (no pun intended).
