Yeah I realized how ironic that sounded but still Walter was a monster how could you not feel bad for Skyler and sympathize with her?
Because there’s a bunch of stupid/sexist fans who have completely missed the point of the show and think that Walt’s supposed to be heroic and likable despite becoming downright monstrous.April 9, 2020 at 5:20 pm #1203418375
Timothy Simons as Jonah Ryan from Veep dragged any episode that he was in during the last season. His character was very annoying and he sucked up and drained the life out of season 7.April 9, 2020 at 5:41 pm #1203418385

Maia Rindell, The Good Fight – On The Good Wife, Peter Florrick’s scandal as state’s attorney gave the opportunity to explore an emotionally complex character in the form of Alicia Florrick, a woman who was emotionally hurt by her husband’s actions whilst staying together with him to keep up positive political PR. On The Good Fight, the focus on the Rindell Ponzi scheme scandal weakened the quality of the show. Rather than exploring an emotionally complex character who was “the new Alicia” in TGF, Maia Rindell’s emotional and literal purpose on the show was limited. Rather than feeling the emotional pain similar to that endured by Alicia, viewers were treated to the mundane pain of watching an upper middle class attorney being discriminated against for being part of the infamous “Rindell” brand. Following the conclusion of the Ponzi scheme storyline in season one, Maia’s purpose on the show seemed to only be in order for the show to boast it had an ensemble of characters.
Zach Florrick, The Good Wife – Grace Florrick represented Alicia Florrick’s innocent “Good” side. Peter Florrick represented the dirtiness of Alicia’s Machiavellian rise in the later seasons. Zach Florrick’s character shared no interesting purpose in the development throughout the entire series run of Alicia’s character, even when every non-Florrick regular character did. Instead Zach became the butt of many awkward jokes about adolescence in the show.
Shirley Maisel, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel – For a show called centred around The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, Shirley Maisel certainly had no character purpose in the show’s third season or the life of it’s protagonist apart from making cameos in order for the Palladinos to joke about the torment of Rose and Abe’s move to the Senior Maisel’s home.
Gordon Klein, Big Little Lies – His role in the show was only to torture Renata and give more meaty material to Laura Dern.
Dan Egan, Veep – What ThatnerdGreg said.
Pete Campbell, Mad Men – Whilst every one of the main character’s in Mad Men had enough character flaws and desirable attributes to ensure character growth and sympathy from the viewer (apart from Don in terms of the former point but that was the point of a chunk of the writing on the show), not much can be said about Campbell. His constant urge to cheat on his wife Trudy throughout the show’s run just made the viewer want to pity Trudy and see his character as careless and shallow.
