The show creator calls anyone who doesn't like Skylar a misogynist, and maybe anyone who thinks she is a nag and shrew is a misogynist, but I don't like her, or Marie, or Wendy, or any of Jesse's women, or his mother, not one. I don't like them because they are uninteresting terrible characters not because I think I have to actually "like" characters. Some of my favorite characters are ones I don't like (Jaime Lannister.)

Skylar has gotten a little more interesting of late, but I rarely believe any of her motivations. I believe the character was meant to be smart enough to challenge Walter, but I don't think she is, and that is bad writing. How they write Walter, Jesse, Hank, Gus, Hector, and all the other really interesting male characters so well and miss so massively on the female characters is kind of a mystery and has kept my from truly enjoying this show. Still can't wait to see how it wraps up though.
She has a lot less screen time, but Hank's wife is pretty useless. I guess she occasionally serves a purpose (gives Hank and Skyler someone to talk to), but she's basically unnecessary. That mini-arc about her stealing stuff was a waste of time.
