Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

Hill Street Blues was doing A, B and C plots virtually every episode from day one, with each major plot arcing across three subsequent episodes so if you tuned in on any given week you'd catch the start of one new plot, the middle or another, and the finish of a third. THAT was innovative and pre-TNG. TNG was a throwback in many ways, so to claim it was a "first in its genre" is truly damning with faint praise.
