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. 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. I don't think I had any conception of the change between Seasons 1&2 though - is that all made clear on YouTube?
