I think there was great potential in Nick. The Melanie/Nick/Chelsea triangle had so many great things going for it and Nick was a fairly popular character. I don't see why writers would have a problem writing for a character like him. Granted he was overly good but that's why you have the character screw up, force to deal with consequences (which don't send him off the show) and then he tries to recover, hopefully growing closer to a love interest along the way.
And I still don't get why they can't figure stories out for Blake but yet continue to write for Darin. He's not in the hunk category. I'm sorry. This might sound cruel, but his receding hairline, bad taste in jewelry and clothes, inability to grow facial hair and underwhelming body makes him look ridiculous everytime they insist on propping his character with constant compliments.
It's even more insulting that with every compliment Max gets on his looks, the show felt they had to counter Nick with an insult on his looks. I give you he's skinny but it works so well with his character and he's not less good looking then Max.
And the show is so stupid if they would just LOOK AROUND. Do they not realize that geeky guy stories are in? Hell, one of NBC's few popular shows is Chuck. A popular character on GH is Spinelli. It's just staggering to me that the show felt they couldn't do anything with Nick's character when they have written Max in every conceivable way and STILL he's not gone anywhere. I hate to make this BB versus DB, but when the show has to do cost cutting and supposedly one of these guys from this generation have to go, it seems pretty clear which one should but of course the show chooses the other less talented, versatile and limited (story) one.
