I share your frustration, but I've come to accept that this is just a different kind of show. It's not meant to be watched like any other show. It's not a passive experience. It demands the viewer get involved. You have to Tivo episodes and go back and watch them and freeze-frame stuff. Or you have to go to a website and read about all the clues and subliminal stuff.
I actually think this would work better as a DVD-only production, with easter eggs and stuff to access as you watch it. It would be easier than watching it in real time, week-to-week, where you miss/forget stuff.
I actually don't know why I watch it every week. I suspect there's some kind of subliminal message broadcast in each episode that compels me to tune in every 7 days.
