firefly felt like a "slow burn" series. It was absolutely incredible. So I don't feel that was justified nor Lost. It is difficult to do a slow burn series right. You have to balance the not revealing too much early on but revealing enough to keep viewers wanting more. An easy step IMO to make it happen seems to be is to create likable characters but with the whole dollhouse premise it is tough to make that happen.
