Just starting to watch this.
I think people who hate the boyfriend are maybe, ahem, projecting some of their own school day insecurities on things.
He’s just good looking and (through his parents) pretty rich. So far, three episodes in, he has acted like a decent person. He’s typically the one telling his idiot friends to stop behaving like an ass.
Yes, he broke Gollum’s camera, but that’s because HE’S A CREEPY STALKING FUCKER. The creepy stalking camera brother is the one I dislike.
