Yeah, he went in there with a good natured attitude, but was met by a wall of surly hate. I just don't understand who on the writing staff thought that any of this was funny. It was just very off putting. I was setting my DVR for the next week, and I saw The Conners on there, and seriously I had no enthusiasm toward watching it, and it's all because of they treated this guest in their house so terrible. And the oddest thing was Dan was the meanest of the bunch.
As for your other comments, I hadn't considered that there was a deeper agenda there, but I do believe you're right, I can't believe I missed it. I just thought well maybe he's just a little too tame for Becky to make a good match for her, considering her history. I don't want to get into it any deeper because I don't want to see posts removed.
