Theme of the recurring villain, what are your thoughts?
Personally, I usually find it enjoyable (as a Dr Who fan particularly fond of the Daleks, i’m always glad to see them show up). However, there can be times when it’s a bit redundant, thoroughly improbable, or just downright predictably monotonous. I suppose it depends on the world set up, suspense build up, and execution as to whether or not it’s enjoyable. Done well, the story can be one hell of a ride. Done wrong, it’s to be avoided at all costs.
