^Right. Moreover, "episodic" and "serialized" aren't absolute categories, they're just tools in the kit, and most shows employ a mix of both approaches. It always bewilders me that people insist on this totally false notion that TV shows can be split down the middle between those two categories. That's a caricature that bears almost no resemblance to reality.
That's true, as well. Shows like Monk and Bones have used an episodic format while the characters lives evolve in the background.
