* AwardSnub: Frequently the cause of this to other shows, especially at the Emmys, where if BryanCranston was nominated for Best Actor, you can bet he'd win it (in particular, ''Series/FridayNightLights'' fans were very grateful for the two year gap between seasons three and four, which allowed Kyle Chandler to win for that show's last season).

** Jesse's comparisons between Walt and the Nazis (including, but not limited to, his angrily shouting "Well, ''Heil Hitler'', bitch!" in Season 1, Episode 3) become quite frightening on two levels. First, Walt's pseudonym of "Heisenberg" is the same name as Werner Karl Heisenberg, a Nazi scientist. Second, late in the series, [[spoiler:Walt starts to work with ''actual'' neo-Nazis, going so far as to arrange for them to assassinate Jesse.]]

** WordOfGod is that the moment that Walt crossed it is when he refused to let Gretchen and Eliot pay for his treatment and went back to cooking meth instead, letting his pride dictate his judgment rather than take the extremely generous and well-intentioned offer. Among fans and critics, the most common deeds brought up as candidates for the trope are the mentioned money refusal, allowing Jane to die, arranging and ordering Gale's death, and [[spoiler:poisoning Brock]].
** [[TakeAThirdOption Or]] [[spoiler:The moment when he kept on cooking meth despite making millions and after all loose ends were tied could qualify.]]

* GrowingTheBeard: Many people agree that while it was tightly plotted, compelling and contained an incendiary performance from Bryan Cranston, Season 1 suffered from having its run truncated by the Writers' Strike. Season 2 picked up at exactly the point Season 1 left off and went on to exceed all viewer expectations, not only developing Walt and Jesse as characters, but giving ostensibly ancillary characters (from [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Hank]], Skyler and even [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas Tuco]]) an unexpected depth. Walter himself, started as a mildly complex character in the first season, but the second season began adding a massive amount of depth and layers that eventually made him one of the most complex characters ever put on television. Add to this the addition of Bob Odenkirk as [[BunnyEarsLawyer Saul Goodman]], Jonathan Banks as [[HitmanWithAHeart Mike Ehrmantraut]] and Giancarlo Esposito as [[MagnificentBastard Gustavo "Gus" Fring]]. The pace of the show markedly picks up from the beginning of season 2, with every episode feeling like an 'end of season cliffhanger'. While season 1 was great, season 2 onwards was as addictive as, well... crystal meth. From there, it never looked back, eventually ending with one of the most critically acclaimed final seasons in TV history.
