I'm hoping when I rewatch, I'll be able to enjoy it from the beginning.
Some have said that the first season plays much better if you can watch the episodes back to back.
That's probably why people like it now more than when it was on the air. The style of serialization the writers used in S1 was absolute shit for a weekly showing because there's little resolution and the story threads are stretched out over weeks, but it works if you marathon it all because you can see how the parts fit together. Something like DS9's serialization, where the plots of each episode resolve, but move an overarching story along, works a lot better in the weekly format.
