True, true. The first episode was a stroke of genius.

I'm still going to vote a 10 because of that. :)

Seen that episode four times, once with a friend, and couldn't stop myself from laughing every time. Starting the show in this way is simply brilliant. It has to be one of the most unique, if not the most unique, first episode I've seen and I can't even point out all of the genuine things in it.

The attention to "detail" is amazing in the episode. For example...

Spoiler for image:

Notice how she moves her hand down for cover between the shots and also blushes. Amazing detail for something that lasts for like 0.5 second.

...and no, I didn't notice this purely because I rewinded to watch the panty shot many times. *cough*

And I'm still unsure about what caused the blue screen in the changing scene. As far as I know, those usually occur when you rewind the tape and shoot over something... which means that he might really have record something... hmm...

I was pretty much the same way as you i actually fell asleep watching the first episode the first time i was quite bored with it, but the second episode totally reclaimed my excitement for this series, as well as the ending and the intro just kick ass

i had to vote a 3 for this episode though cause i could not stay awake

You all do know that this "first episode" is actually episode 0, right? It was officially announced as episode 0 (just because afk called it episode 1 doesn't mean it is, they aren't the company making it). I believe it's even getting its own DVD. The "second" episode is the actual first episode.

10 all the way, baby.

Rating this one is hard, expecialy because I think (like others said) it would incease his value one episode after another (and I can't wait for the eventual "making-of").

Said that I must agree with...

It depends on whether you want to follow Haruhi's definition or Kyon's definition... I side with Haruhi! And this will definitely win the festival prize!!!

The episodes are 01 and 02, not 00 and 01. Confirm that on this page of the SOS-dan site. The movie-within-an-anime was episode 00 of Mikuru's Adventure. Original Japanese files on WinNY are also numbered 01 and 02. This is the only thing for which we need not take Haruhi's word.

I gave this first episode a perfect ten. This is the only episode of anything I have ever given that score to in an AS poll. As good as episode 2 is, it does not reach the heights of this all-time-classic episode.

I didn't even think about that... but I guess we'll find out during the "making of" Ep (or the folks who have read the novels can let us know). ^^

I'm similar; I believe that 10 is a perfect rating, and since nothing is perfect, 9 is the highest I normally rate things.

This was perfect.

Kyon is, of course, correct in both matters. Suzumiya may be enthusiastic, but Kyon is realistic.

To be on the fair side of things, inspiration for the change will have to come from none other than Kyon in one of his random observation no matter how little of a potato he is considered by Haruhi, i.e. the inspiration for S.O.S dan.

I gave it a ten. After watching the first episode, I realized I hadn't been so excited about seeing the next since Misato first promised "lots of fanservice" during a preview of Evangelion.
