I started watching this previously and actually reached the end of the first season (150-something), but since it's been so long I decided to just start from scratch. One thing that I noticed is that I remember having a lot of problem getting "into" the humour and it took me maybe twenty episodes until it finally clicked, but re-watching those episodes they are funnier now that I "get it". I'm at the point where Mary's taken hostage by the Fernwood Slasher (not to be confused with the Fernwood Flasher). It's such a unique concept in that it works as a comedy and as a soap opera - the fact that they managed to produce this as a daily show is amazing. I very much doubt there'll be another show like this again.
