The Skyler White Effect
The cognitive dissonance that happens when a female character is presented by the narrative as absolutely correct in their judgment of a male character, and yet the viewers assume she’s the bitch.
So the implication here is that if Skyler White were played by a male everyone would love her character?
She is essentially the Obi-Wan to Walter’s Anakin. I don’t want to watch Anakin be turned to the light side, I want to watch him become Darth Vader.
The point of this show is to watch Walt “Break Bad”, male or female the character who plays the good conscience will not be liked.
tv challenge: [2/5] ended tv shows ➸ lost"do you really think all this is an accident - that we, a group of strangers, survived, many of us with just superficial injuries? do you think we crashed on this place by coincidence - especially this place? we were brought here for a purpose, for a reason, all of us. each one of us was brought here for a reason.”
I am waiting for that moment in my life when I can use this quote.

(To Westboro Baptist Church)
"If you really believe in standing up to those threatening the Christian way of life," Hills said on his UK television program "The Last Leg," "how about putting your money where your mouth is, taking a direct flight to Iraq and picketing the people threatening to behead Christians if they don’t convert?"
Hills then took his suggestion a step further by making a generous offer. “I will personally pay for every member of the Westboro Baptist Church to fly to Iraq right now. I’ll even fly you first class and pay the carbon offset.”
