Default Breaking Bad on Netflix

About halfway through and all I have to say is that I have never hated a character more than Skyler White (the wife). I find myself not wanting to watch anymore because of her. I have never had such a strong reaction to a character in TV or movies. It's a good show, but I hope she gets shot or someone drops a safe on her head or something...

I felt the same way a lot of the time but to be fair Walter is putting the whole family in danger. Keep watching.

That was the most addicting show I've ever watched. It was more addicting than Walter's meth. My wife and I got hooked on it a few weeks ago when AMC had a Breaking Bad marathon. We ended up watching all 6 seasons in 2 weeks. Great show, though.

I'm not a TV guy in general, but I was hooked at episode 1.

I'm in the vast minority but I can't figure out how that show is so popular. We watched about half of the series on Netflix and finally quit because you have to watch at least 3 in a row for something to happen. I didn't necessarily think it was bad, just don't get the hype. I honestly just think it is decent at best. That said, I'll probably go back and finish it off in the Summer just because I can't stand having an unfinished series hanging out there.

My bow bunny and I think it's the best series ever for TV. We even ran through it a second time a year after finishing it up and liked it just as much.

For those that liked it (I thought it was one of the best shows ever) Better Call Saul is great too.

Hank's wife was the character I though was most annoying.

BB was one of the best shows I've ever watched.

I feel the same way about HomeLand. It's a good show but damn that women is crazy. Drives me nuts. I can only watch a few episodes at a time. Never seen Breaking Bad.

I do like the show so far - and the writing is great. There is a certain messed up morality to Walter White - even though he is getting slowly consumed by Heizenberg. His wife however... the writers did an awesome job of writing a completely selfish, self absorbed, manipulative, scheming, hypocritical personality. So far I think she is actually worse than Walter in many ways. Will watch some more tonight...

As others have said, keep watching as her character evolves.

And try not to hate so much. It's not good for the soul

Loved BB.

Anna Gunn played Bullocks wife on Deadwood too. Couldn't stand her there either.

Both shows worth watching despite her.
