    Ah yeah see I already have the show on satellite so I don't have a problem with downloading a copy for rewatch until it's on Netflix. But yeah if you don't have legal access, then you should buy the eps, yeah.

    I'm curious as to what it was. :p I know there's a maybe-guest star everyone's buzzing about (please use spoiler tags if you want to talk about it).

    Only took me a year, but I finally watched all of the show. Found seasons one and two quite hard going, but everything after that was pure gold. Not seen a season as good as Season Four since Season Four of The Wire.

    Season 1 and 2 were the slow burning seasons, but they established a reckless and violent world where you can kind of cheer for the morally ambiguous Walt. Kind of.

    This doesn't apply to anyone in this thread (thankfully), but I've definitely seen people demonstrate this elsewhere online.

    Yes, it happens with shows in which a female character somehow impedes the male protagonist. Betty Draper in Mad Men is another example.

    Uh, Skyler White isn't as great as this makes her out to be.

    I assumed it was referring to season 5 where she (correctly) judged Walt to be evil.

    I'm fairly certain that the reason people don't like Skylar is because she's unlikable at times. But it's a lot easier for internet social justice warriors to blame it on misogyny.

    I like how the article you post doesn't at all back up the misogyny claim.

    The first time I watched the show, I ****ing hated Skyler, because I wanted Walt to succeed, etc. On the rewatch, I changed my mind. I realized that Walk wasn't really that great of a person, and Skyler was justified in a lot of what she thought, said, and did (though she really is obnoxiously passive aggressive a lot of the time).

    My hatred of Skyler started when she was smoking while pregnant.

    About halfway through Season Four I warmed to Skylar. Throughout Season Five I pitied the heck out of her. I think a lot of the vitriol leveled at her is sub-consciously misogynistic, but I think more is that it's difficult to get over first impressions and the first impression is a neurotic, banal pain in the ass.

    Though curiously I've always liked Marie...
