Why shouldn't people think that?

1) There's been at least one mystery comprehensively explored in each and every episode so far. This would be akin to K-On having at least one insert song per episode... So at the very least, Hyouka takes its mysteries more seriously than K-On took its music.

2) The mystery surrounding Chitanda's Uncle was actually very good, on its own merits. It was a very good mystery that was spread out over a few episodes. It contributed greatly to the quality of Episodes 4 and 5.

Now, if a show bills itself as a Mystery show, has mysteries in every episode, has an actually good multi-episode mystery for 3 of its first 5 episodes, then I think viewers have a right to take it as a Mystery show and to expect more mysteries (hopefully good ones).
