i get it, but what's being ignored is that people's first impression of skyler was that she was a naggy shrew in season one - before walt went sour and she became a victim. it's those episodes where she smoked while pregnant and kept walt's nuts in a jar that the hate is derived from, and not some broader issue.
She's absolutely right, though. Skyler seems to be more much despised than Walter, which is mind-boggling. Not to mention that the truly annoying and insufferable female character in the show is Marie.

I guess I can't speak for others, but my history of not liking her is strictly because of her personality...which doesn't mesh with what she's saying, right?
But I don't even really dislike her much anymore, and haven't for a while, since she's gotten the emotional crap kicked out of her.
She used to be an annoying nag, and deserved all the venom.
Edit...not ALL the venom obviously. People go too far

- And especially, when that lady in charge of the company kept trying to freak out on Walt as he worked at his business, but Walt kept the character of a store clerk (exactly what Gus did to Walt multiple times)

Sort of a theme across the entire show... Hank is a tough field guy, but no one really listens to him. Sort of the paper tiger syndrome.
think so? i don't know about that. he's always seemed very well-respected amongst his peers and subordinates.
