As the show progresses, they hit their stride. I almost gave up on it ("Fata Morgana" - blech. "Nubbins?" ) but there are several episodes that saved it for me ("Requiem," "The Five," "Revelations Part 1 & 2") as well as my like of some characters, mainly the Big Guy (who David immediately identified as the same actor who played Wraith Todd from SG Atlantis just by his voice) and Henry, who I have a crush on. :)
It's visually weird, but in a quirky way that I'm getting used to and liking.
