While I greatly enjoyed the series on DVD, it didn't grab me while it was on the air. I would contribute that to the theory of airing episodes out of order. Traditionally popular shows appeal to the masses when there's no need to know the back story. A risk that something like "Lost" won. Makes you wonder what would have happened if they skipped airing the pilot.
great comment.

I enjoyed it on TV but became more of a fan when I was able to see it in order at my own leisure on DVD. As for "Lost" and "BSG" being story arc type shows and not episodic, I believe they "won" with mostly their original audiences or people who went out to buy the DVDs to catch up. Most viewers don't start watching "Lost" or "BSG" tomorrow and become fans.
