Mixed reviews. I love the new Shawn, and loved Jason Cook's portrayal of Shawn.
Brandon is a sweetheart (I've spoken with him.) and he's a wonderful actor IMO. He's got sex appeal, to me. :)
We're all going to have our own opinions, but I think Audd hit the nail when she said:
let's remember the good times with the old one, remember he left on his own accord, he is happy and so should we be happy for him
He did leave of his own accord! :) It'll take time... in the meanwhile, you can lust after the rest of the cast!
