In CSI Season 6 Ep 18 a little girl named Hannah creates reasonable doubt in a murder investigation of her brother by confessing to the crime in court and planting evidence to implicate herself. She manipulates the cast and jury throughout by playing on their emotional reactions and once her brother is freed removes herself from the investigation. It's fairly straightforward for a Magnificent scheme but she pulls it off with style enough I'm willing to call it. Opinions?

Does Remington Steele from the TV series qualify as a Magnificent Bastard? Or just something more minor?

Removed the Dalek Emperor (new series). A semi-clever evil plan and a lot of patience does not a Magnificent Bastard make.
