I wouldn't say that either comes across as the bad guy - which is what's so good about it. Both have 1 side of the story, and believe their side of it. That bias then informs their take on new information, and we get to see that Danny is over-reacting in a very human and understandable way (turned up to 11 because TV drama).I've still got a few episodes to go, so won't open the spoiler yet, but I know what you mean about the 2 sides thing
It's weird watching Danny getting portrayed as the bad guy - but you start to believe it/sympathise a lot more with the "bad guys" when you see their point of view
In the film's, Danny was the protagonist, and we saw almost everything from his perspective. In the TV show, we get both sides, but it's Johnny's story, so we see more of it from his side. Because we're seeing Johnny's side, we know that Danny is being unreasonable and leaping to conclusions - but Danny doesn't have access to Johnny's side (apart from the odd scene hear and there, which isn't enough to overcome his 35 years prejudice).
