My parents aren't liking Justified Season 1...how to convince them to continue?

So us Justified fans know the show is awesome, but my parents started watching Season 1 and they're already ready to stop watching. They don't like the plot of the week format for the season and lack of a story arc.

Would you say that the other seasons would be more what they're looking for (more serialized)? It's been a while since I've seen those seasons. Season 2 and up were better than 1, right?

Never heard of it, but story arcs are one of the weakest parts of American TV shows. Most of the time they're nothing but an excuse to stretch out a plot in attempts to make more money and the overall structure suffers because of it. Sounds like I need to check this one out.

Personally I gave up myself halfway through season 2.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out
