I know what you and Matt were saying. I just wanted to be brief because I didn't feel like typing up a two page post.

Daniel was introduced through Bo's illness story. He's Victor's Godson. He's interacted with Kate, Victor, Justin, Philip, Chloe, Lexie, Sami, Kayla and Marlena (when they were around) ..pretty much everyone.
I think we're just going to have to disagree again. "Daniel was introduced through Bo's illness story" is not the type of thing I was thinking of. (Not to put words in Matt's mouth, but I don't think it's what he meant either.) Of course a new character is introduced through a story - how else would he/she be introduced?? The idea, imo, is to take a well-known character and slowly bring a new character into his/her orbit. Rafe and Sami, though overdone a bit, used that model. But just saying that "Nathan is a Horton", or "Mia lives with Maggie" doesn't explain to us how or why we should care about these new characters. I think Days has way too many of this type of introductions while having far too few of the type of introductions Matt is referring to.
I stand by what I said. The show did do what you both said they should've and unless someone watched regularly during the past year or so, you can't possibly know that.
Your right though. We will have to agree to disagree. I probably shouldn't have started the debate in the first place but Matt never really comments in this Days thread so I figured it was a chance to get into some good discussion, an opportunity I don't see too much around here anymore, hence why I don't post much, if at all, anymore.
