Quote Mrs. Lansing: Yes I think we need at least 8 new threads a day about Robin/Patrick/ Sabrina. LOL!
I always found Patrick to be a bore, and could care less about who he was paired with. But some of the Robin fans are a bit over the top and now I find myself rooting for Sabrina just because of that.
I don't consider myself a Robin fan per say, but I can't say I don't like her because she's such an iconic GH figure. I've watched her grown up on the show and it's hard to say that about many characters because of sorasing and recasting. It's refreshing to see a character that has only been played since childhood by one actor.
With that though, I'm not crazy about her either, mostly indifferent to her and Patrick. They had some great times, but became quite the snooze fest before her exit. Sabrina has been mediocre at best, but certainly not the monster many make her out to be. I find the witch hunt of Sabrina ridiculous, yet oddly amusing.
For a small time, supporting character... she sure ignites a lot of passion and wild imagination.
It's not that I do not like Robin, it's just that since her return after the Jason break up I found her character not as interesting. I never fast forwarded through her scenes or anything like that and that is because a. I didn't dislike her, and b. As you said she is a long time character who we actually watched grow up so there is an automatic "attachment" to her for lack of a better word. The only other character that can compare to that is Laura who was played by GF from the beginning since she was in her early teens.
That being said I never liked Patrick and mostly tolerated him with an occasional ff. Sabrina too, not a character I dislike, but just one I never became invested in, through no fault of the actress.
My feelings have really turned into something other then boredom for two reasons; 1. Robin emotionally blackmailing Sabrina, both lacked any kind of personal dignity, and was beneath a independent secure woman that Robin has always been portrayed as. 2. The over the top childish rants and blatant contempt that some Robin fans show to those who express a different opinion from their own.
Those two things have really turned me off towards Robin, and I now find myself rooting for Sabrina, and am hoping that if a Robin and Patrick reunion occurs it will be short lived, although I would not want to see Sabrina ruined by further involvement with Patrick.
I like Sabrina much better with Carlos because I find her scenes with him much more interesting then any she has had with Patrick, and I am beginning to become a little more invested in her character now.
Sorry for the long ramble, but just trying to explain my "evolution" as best I can on a sleepy Monday afternoon at work...LOL!
