: One Thousand Ways To Die Slade talks about the deaths of stupid people.
(1997 TV version): 12 Angry Men Felix Unger has to convince jury foreman ADA Carver, bluecollar everyman Tony Soprano, foreign watchmaker Bill Adama, ad man Gus Grissom, frustrated baseball fan Tony Miceli, infuriated racist Brian Hastings, elderly Polonius, ultra-precise Efraim 'Eli' Zahavy, Martian Manhunter, Dr. Dolittle's dad, and the particularly antagonistic Gen. Patton to consider that the kid they're sentencing for murder might not be guilty (at the very least his defense sucked). With Laura Roslyn as the judge.
: 1600 Penn Pres. Whitmore and his wife Dharma deal with the nation, the world, and their Man Child son Elder Cunningham.

Among the terrorists they fight are Howard Payne, the Jigsaw Killer, Imhotep, RoboCop, Farmer Hoggett, and Coach Bill Yoast. Jonas Blaine becomes President. Blair Waldorf is poisoned by a terrorist's wife in one episode.
To put into perspective how badass the caller really is... he had Imhotep and RoboCop running scared from him... and during season seven, Cell was a minor villain. World-destroying, Super Saiyan-whipping Cell. And the caller tortured the living hell out of him. Toward the end of season 8, he impaled Loki on a fireplace poker. Kara "Starbuck" Thrace on the other hand was pretty useless (from what I've heard).
