I'm up to 1x11, halfway through the first season...

...it gets better though, right? So far it's been pretty much standalone episodes with the usual tv formula of a problem presented to the protagonists and eventually solved by the protagonists within the hour ("Throne For a Loss" and "Thank God It's Friday, Again" come to mind). There is some character development, especially with D'Argo and Zhaan, but I thought this show featured serious story arcs. Perhaps it's more of a season 2 thing...
It gets better late in Season 1 (the last 6 or 7 episodes or so), but then the quality drops again in early Season 2. About midway through Season 2, the quality picks up big time, and it starts to get more and more serialized. Mid-season 2 to the end of Season 3 is fantastic. But the seeds of that story arc are planted in those late Season 1 eps.
