Is it too much to ask for a show not to cling to the tired mission-of-the-week format?
That's a classic format. Star Trek did it. Sherlock Holmes did it. Odysseus did it. I like it just fine.
The average TV show is not being written by Homer. Maybe Homer Simpson.

Lots of shows in recent years have told serialized stories rather than case/client-of-the-week stories, but the client format survives because it works.
There's an audience for it, but unless the show is of particularly good quality, I'm not part of that audience.

Then again, I'm not the audience for a bad serialized show either. Plenty of those going around, just look at The River.
