I'm of the belief that if the first scene of the first episode didn't immediately hook you for life you're a weirdo. But I was also 13 when the show premiered, made sure to watch it every week and re-watch each prior episode of the series before every new season, and was basically raised on that show / heavily influenced on my social and political beliefs by that show.
It's less a show I enjoyed, more a foundational pillar of my humanity. So I'm biased.
