“Breaking Bad’s” Skyler White: Why did it take so long to make her interesting?
Anna Gunn’s NY Times Op-Ed doesn’t go far enough in explaining why her character is so hated, says Maureen Ryan. “‘Breaking Bad’ is an undoubtedly a great show, but, as is the case with too many television dramas, for while there it didn’t really know what to do with its female characters,” she writes. “The AMC drama clearly struggled to make Skyler and Marie Schrader … anything but subsidiary figures who rarely moved into — or deserved — the spotlight. Their behaviors and reactions were easy to predict, and if the writers didn’t show consistent interest in their emotional lives and the women’s inner depths, why would viewers care about them, let alone have positive responses to them?” PLUS: Is there really mass hatred for Skyler White?, and people, even women hate Skyler because she’s bitter and boring.
