Overall it's an addicting show and the storyline with the main character is very good. Note, I'm 3.5 seasons in. However, to anyone who's watched it before is his sister's character not one of the worst written and worst acted characters of a major drama there has ever been? It is so bad I almost want to quit the show just because of her. It makes Walter White's wife look like an Oscar winner. I'm honestly shocked a show on that level could let that happen and still haven't corrected it by 40 episodes in.
You’re 3.5 seasons in? You have about .5 seasons of great content left lol. Seasons 5 and 7 are OK I guess, 6 and 8 are rough
Strong disagree on Skyler White tho, think Anna Gunn did a great job, and Skyler White as a character was reasonable enough given her husband was turning into a meth dealing narcissist lol.
Yes pretty much the Trinity killer storyline seems to be the jump the shark moment for me. Just starts making stupid nonsensical mistake after mistake, the opposite of what his character was portrayed as the whole time. Along with tons of holes in the story. It's continued so far in season 5.
I do give his sister some break as far as acting goes in that I chalk most of it up to absolutely horrible writing, especially her dialogue, so it's tough for me to put it all on her. Though at least some of it is. I think this character takes the cake as worst in any major drama I've watched, and I've watched a lot. I actually don't think it's close either. But maybe it improves in the next few seasons and she tones just constantly flying off the handle and blowing up on everyone over and over and cursing stupidly.
For Anna Gunn. I'm surprised anyone is defending that, I basically thought it was widely accepted that character was the achilles heal of the show. Again it is somewhat on the writing, but to me if you're nitpicking BB it's tough for me to put it as best ever due to her and WW's son's storylines and acting. Also, I'm not talking about just hating a character as I know some characters are designed and supposed to be hated, and Anna Gunns somewhat was supposed to be.
