Growing up, we are raised given a definitive sense of right and wrong. We know what is inherently good and what is evil, and we apply those ideals to our lives as adults. Yet here we are, and drug kingpins (Walter White), cheaters and liars (Don Draper), and criminal bikers (Jackson Teller) dominate television. How easy it is that we find ourselves sympathizing and rooting for these characters when they stand for everything we have been warned our entire lives to avoid. This is an obvious indication that with truly fine writing, our beliefs can shatter in an instant and wind up clinging to ideals we would never let lead us otherwise.
