There's a strange double standard people seem to have when criticising soap characters' behaviour online. They hold the characters to a stricter moral code than one would one's own family and friends, while making no allowances for the fact that said characters are living in a soap opera, the conditions of which would lead most real-life people either onto the top of a building with a shotgun, or into a padded cell in a straitjacket.Most episodes in the early 200s are peppered with unpleasant comments from the same few people who seem to be hate watching. They express disappointment in Paul for not being the perfect saviour, or judgemental hatred towards Rob for behaving the way people in soaps do. The comments are a curious juxtaposition of idealist and jaded at the same time. They are - to say the least - a very different interpretation to my own viewing experience.
Yes, I remember that character standing out the last time I watched and I googled his name as well. He's a better actor than he needed to be in S&D, so it was kind of gratifying to know he'd done well afterwards.His son is attractively cheeky, albeit a bit too immature. I was curious to see what became of him. Good things, it seems...
I don't think I had any conception of the change between Seasons 1&2 though - is that all made clear on YouTube?
