Difference is, this is a continuing storyline, and so I think you do need to
have the occasional bit of exposition in there for the folks who don't (or
can't) watch and track every single episode. You should be able to come in at
any point in the story, and watch an episode, and get something satisfying out
Doesn't really have anything to do with the time slot, it has to do with being
fair to the majority of the audience.
