Amanda Marcotte examines the hatred of Breaking Bad‘s Skyler White: “The anti-Skyler brigade seems to be part of a larger trend of fans loathing wives on television—especially if they’re married to anti-heroes.” And Tod VanDerWeff talks about the same in reviewing an episode of The Sopranos for The AV Club: “The Sopranos invented the many tropes we associate with the form today. Betty Draper, Rita Morgan, Skyler White, Martha Bullock: They all trace their basic lineage—the wife who gets in the way of the hero/antihero’s dark business—back to Carmela, and they’ve all encountered similar resistance from fans.” (via @ONoesUDidnt)
