Gilligan wanted to create a series in which the protagonist became the antagonist. We want to make people question who they're pulling for, and why.
He's well on his way to badass. While his producers convinced him that the show was different enough to still be successful, he later stated that he would not have gone forward with the idea had he known about Weeds earlier.
