Advertisements Now obviously, this isn't going to have as many examples as the other thread but I can think of a few shows that sucked in the beginning but later became great. I'm sure there are more. Seinfeld- I can still barely watch the first two seasons. No network would have kept that around today. Episodes- This is the Matt Leblanc show on Showtime. I HATED the first couple of episodes but the show really grew on me and I'm looking forward to a second season. (It would still be better without Leblanc) The Big C- I didn't really enjoy it in the beginning. I didn't find Cathy very likeable at all. I think the second season is a big improvement and it's becoming one of my favorite shows.
