And yeah, as toxic as the place can be, the personalities are sometimes interesting. Those two factors are definitely interrelated.

My mom was happy when that guy died, but nobody has topped Joffrey yet.

Joffrey was probably the most unlikeable character on television for the past few years.

Ramsay should top Joffrey. Yet there are those who go as far to call him hot. Then again, show Ramsay is ''tame'' compared with his book counterpart.

Fuck Ramsay man. Seriously. That dude is pure evil. Joffrey was stupid evil.

Could be, but I really didn't think Skyler White deserved that much hatred. I mean, she wasn't innocent by a longshot, but so much of the ire directed toward her came from people nutty enough to still be rooting for Walter.

I didn't think so either. She received a lot more hatred than real villains though.

Breaking Bad is a good litmus test. If a viewer thinks that Walt's a good guy, they probably have a pretty skewed sense of right and wrong.

Ditto with a lot of other cable dramas, actually.

Yeah, the worst is that the actress received some hate. that is wrong on all levels. I can barely stand the character, I can't deny that. but I really like the actress, a role like that is not easy, it takes skill.

Walter was a good man that did bad things for a good reason at first. He stopped being a good man on the way.

Honest Trailers described Skyler pretty accurately: ''Walter's annoying wife who you'd wish she could just go away. Then you wish she could just get away.''

I was (almost) always rooting for Walter, even though he became a bad guy during the course of the show.

There's a difference between rooting for a bad guy whom you know is the bad guy, and actually thinking the bad guy is the good guy.

I only question people who do the latter.

Oh Walt was not a "good" guy by the end, there's really no serious arguement there IMO.

That said, I could (and do) agree with much of what he did and WHY he did it. He's not the monster some viewers like to make him out to be.

Can't rember if i posted in this thread already. i like the free speech policy and the diversity og opinions in the general discussion. i like to see people passionate enough about warcraft to forge theories, fan fiction and the good amount of lore provided.

Honestly, I'm surprised it took this long for someone to make the connection.
