Um, the point of the story is to show Walt transformation into a cold blooded crime kingpin

Seems like you missed the point

The funny thing is he outlined the point. I only had to bold a couple parts of his "analysis" to show him lol.

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.

I agree. But I see lots of people justify for his actions and calls his wife bitch. So either our moral has collapsed or this show is misleading

Whether or not someone has the mental or moral capacity to judge the actions in a tv show has no implication on the quality of the show.

You're absolutely right. I didn't say it's a show of low quality. I actually said the acting is great.

No not really, at the beginning we were supposed to sympathize with him, but as they series moved on the director made it obvious he's making Walt the bad guy of his own story. Some still cling to justify his actions because lets be real, the world is not black and white. A man dying of cancer who's already making and selling drugs has really nothing to lose.

So why can't an upstanding human being like the show?

Well that is different. It is a show and often we like to fantasize about becoming rich or powerful or intelligent, and the wife is a constant obstacle of that fantasy.

I'm sure if people actually sat down and thought about it they would agree that the wife is more moral than her husband (although she is by no means innocent either).

Yeah, in the show Skylar's is Walt's biggest obstacle, how she planned to rat him out, how he tried to win her back, how she cheated on him. to us viewers it just tedious that to the point when she went insane I was laughing my ass off

Sure but legally.
His wife isn't innocent thanks to him. But she didn't have many choices, she did what she has to do.

This why I say this show's bad.
Walter is the bad guy here, Skylar is just a normal household wife. She did what any normal woman (or man) would do under that circumstance. Being an obstacle to a bad guy ≠ bitch

Are you saying books, tvs, movies have absolutely no impact on people's perceptions?

No it's not, Walt has put himself, his family and friends in danger. It's also hinted he's isn't making it out of the drug business alive. The only reason people are rooting for Walt is the same reason people root for the protagonist in Gangster movies, we just love to see our protagonist find a way to be above the law and live to tell about it
