Season 1 was a documentary, and Season 2 was a game show.
I think it's reasonable to conclude that you could separate the Brethren membership into groups of 10, poll them, and the membership would consistantly choose Season 1 over Season 2 at an 8 to 2 rate (8 like Season 1: 2 like Season 2) all day long.
But if you polled non-barbeque folk, that number would flip in the other direction.
Unless it's your hobby or you have a special interest, few want to see a documentary more than once... even one that changes slightly.
I agree with the guy who is in the "I'll take what I can get" category. Some shows, even of a Season 2 type, are better than none.
