To add a data point.

I started watching Breaking Bad after the whole show had finished. I started watching knowing it was considered a great show plus the show eventually came to a planned finish plus (important this for a free to air UK channel) my broadcaster was promising to show all the episodes.

With all that in mind I thought the first episode was pretty dire. Even the first few episodes had me struggling. Even the first season I thought it made missteps along the way. But being broadcast an episode a day, five days a week, I stuck with it and grew to enjoy and appreciate it. By the end I did think it was good. But had I been watching it once a week when it went out originally I strongly suspect I would have bailed early and then I would have been unlikely to return.
