Alec, Jensen Ackles' character in the sci-fi series Dark Angel was described as a "fun loving sociopath". The character's apparent lack of a conscience or impulse control meant he could do things that lots of people would want to do but would never actually do, which was fun to watch.

Some other similar characters I can think of are the demon Balthazar from Supernatural, Hannah and Dan from the BBC sitcom Siblings, and maybe The Cat from Red Dwarf (I strongly suspect all cats are sociopaths). Do you have a favourite tv character who ignores social niceties and just pleases themselves in a way you can vicariously enjoy?

My wife and I are finally watching all of Dexter, and I have to say that Dexter Morgan has become my sociopath...errr, psychopath...ummm, both? Yeah, he fits both categories, I think.
I tried watching Dexter and couldn't handle it! I live alone and got too scared of a real life Dexter coming to kill me... weak I know
Watched 'Dexter' for the 1st Series, then stopped, as it was getting beyond the pale!

I love BBC's Sherlock. He's a high functioning sociopath.
I can't really think of any to be honest. Unless Q from Star Trek counts as a sociopath.
There's been some doozies' on the original 'CSI', & 'Law & Order: SVU'. 'Bones' too, had one!
Of course, 'Grimm' & 'Sleepy Hollow' have got 'em all over the place! Love them all!
Don't know about fun loving, but BBC's Sherlock is my favourite sociopath.
