Quote OV123: It can take time to grow into a role. So far, it's not working. Shawn D. needs to have some appeal, even if he is going crazy! I don't find the actor or the character appealing. I have no sympathy for this character, and the writers are in part to blame. His comments to Hope this week were ugly and disrespectful. His sympathy for Willopw (or attraction, or whatever it's supposed to be) doesn't make sense. No one that I know who watches this show likes this guy. Nothing personal against him.
I do agree, he was very disrespecful to his mother, still, the old Shawn is NOT coming back, so we need to move on and remember the good times with him and give NuShawn a chance! This is how the writer is portraying him now, it's not NuShawn's fault!! Also, I love the new writer, the show hasn't been this good in years, I think most would agree!!
