Oh, I did, too. However, when the first half was originally airing, I just remember being a little frustrated by the fact that the episodes had so little to do with the main story arc.
Ah but that's the thing - they actually did have plenty to do with the arc, just not in ways everyone immediately understood or expected.
Yes, I completely agree. When I first re-watched Season 4, I was amazed at how much substance there actually was and how it all would eventually relate to the final arc of the series.
I'm just saying...at the time
, the first half of season 4, as it aired on the SciFi Channel, was frustrating.
