1. It's probably just me, but I didn't watch because I saw no morals, or even a point.

The show wasn't anti or pro-meth, it was just meth -- normalized. I hated the subject matter from the first episode.

18. I only watched the first four episodes. I found it pretty disgusting so I stopped watching it.

Just couldn't get into the whole thing. I found it morally objectionable. Just couldn't get past that.

10. Walt's issues didn't start with being a teacher

 

Walt was a genius in a cage, enslaved from a corrupt system and marginalized. It started in college for him--the last time he was really alive and expressing himself artistically and intellectually. Meth manufacturing was a way for Walt to live again, and was also an act of pure revolt against this very system

11. Good explanation...

and he says it, in the last episode.
The wheels within wheels of the writing, one of the things that made this an excellent show.

12. Correct.

Walt wanted what he should have had from the beginning.

Sold out for a few months rent.

That ate at his soul, Meth was just a means to a end.

15. UM, no. Walt was a failed capitalist.

He very clearly lamented that he sold his stake in the company for $5000 that would someday be
worth billions. He made a mistake and it burned him up. Meth was his way, as he said himself,
to build an empire.

13. "If you're going to go pantless in the desert, carry a gun."

Words of wisdom I have always followed.

17. Actually, the moral is

give Americans healthcare.

Ultimately, it was his craving for success and power that drove him, but it all started with him not wanting his cancer to bankrupt his family.
