Obviously villains are nasty people - the 'likeability' of villains (for me anyway) amounts to "the devil gets all the best lines"... Plus many movie villains are written as psychopaths, for whom...

The last three shows you've listed are not really mockumentaries beyond the visual style. They all abandoned the conceit quite quickly beyond a few format points.

As a Brit, Micke is far more interesting and (more importantly) distinctive IMO. Not entirely sure how to pronounce it (Mike, Mike-uh, Mick-uh or even Mickey?) so you'd have that to look forward to...
