Webisodes in general are a garbage concept for any kind of long-form dramatic storytelling. They suck all the tension right out and ruin any sense of pacing.
I wouldn't go that far. The webseries format has worked better for comedy, but it can
do decent drama if it has a handle on what kind of drama it wants to do (the Gaeta miniseries was okay).
This said translating a story meant for a full pilot episode into fragmented web series bytes sounds a bit like watching an episode of BSG and taking a week break where you'd normally just watch credits.
