I'm thankful they added the other episodes inbetween, even if they could have been done better. It fleshed out the world a bit more, and gave Kirito some depth. I don't believe going from episode 2, straight to episode 8, would have produced anywhere near as good a transition. Infact, I would say, it would hurt it greatly.
