Default How can any upstanding human being like the show "Breaking Bad"

Let me begin to say the acting is great in this show and there are a few likable characters which kept me watching.
Now why I hate the show:
Because Walter White is like the most terrible main character I've ever seen in any show. This man has ZERO integrity or moral.
Before he's diagnosed with cancer, he's a underachiever in life but had a lovely family. Then everything changed.
His first instinct was to leave some money for his family (since he's such a loser before and haven't had any savings). Funny thing is, he never planned any money for his kids to go to college until the cancer?
So he started cooking, utilizing his area of expertise. At this point it is immoral but understandable as he's still a good person. Seen as he can't kill that drug dealer under Jesse's basement.

Long story short, by the end of 5th season, he's became someone else, something else. A monster with hands full of blood. I'm gonna do a head count of people he's killed and lives he's responsible for:
Two Mexican drug dealers, two rival drug dealers, Gale, Jane, Gus Fring and at least a dozen of his men, and over 100 people died in that plane crash.

There isn't one moment that he showed any remorse for all the deaths he has caused. Especially those innocent ones. This makes me very very sick.

He convinced himself he's doing all these to provide for his family, reality check: he destroyed his family, almost got Hank killed, his wife's paranoid. He could've stopped when Gus died, he can live a happy live with the car wash. But he didn't, why? 'cause he's such a hypocrite. He ain't doing this for his family, he's doing this because he was such a pathetic loser and this is for the first time in his life he's achieving something, regardless of all the crimes he's committed.

tl,dr: Walter White is a mass murder, drug dealer, hypocrite, and loser.


Edit: logic fail:
Gus Fring, The biggest drug dealer North of the border works in a chicken restaurant 24/7. Always drives by himself without any bodyguard.
There is no one but himself running this huge organization. So when he died, the whole organization collapse.
Mike does everything for him from collecting money to killing rivals, sometimes hide in the ice truck to protect product. Yet somehow he still finds time to earn some extra bucks as a PI.
Don't get me started on the hazard money, freaking hilarious

Yet you couldn't provide a single point to back up this quote. Walt being a shtty person doesn't make the series overrated.

Why does that make the show bad though? The Walter-to-Heisenberg transition is supposed to evoke some mixed feelings from the audience. You're not supposed to completely agree with all of Walter's actions. Not all main characters have to be paragons of virtue. Some can be flawed. Some can be downright evil. And it can still make for a great series or movie.

But shows like this can be misleading to teenagers, yes? There are a lot of people that actually like Walter

What about Gus Fring? The biggest drug dealer North of the border works in a chicken restaurant 24/7. Always drives by himself without any bodyguard.
There is no one but himself running this huge organization. So when he died, the whole organization collapse.

Hence the title "Breaking Bad"

That is the point of the show. We see how someone can go from an ordinary person to a power hungry sociopath. All the while justifying his actions.
