    Yep, that sounds right. The Fonz had such a huge impact on culture at that time, its hard to overstate.

    Orphan Black. We meet Sarah in the first episode but don't meet Alison and Cosima until episode two and Helena until episode 3.

    I still think the Witcher is unique in having the 2 main characters meeting up in the final episode of the first season.

    Winston wasn't in the first episode, though. So it doesn't really count unless I'm misunderstanding the thread because they all "met" in the second episode.

    Otherwise, characters like Steve Urkel would count, too, because he didn't show up till episode 4 and didn't become a regular till I think 2-3 episodes later.

    Felicity Smoak on Arrow. Didn't meet Oliver until the third episode, and I think didn't meet Diggle until the 11th.

    I'm thinking of doing a rewatch of Arrow. For some reason, I didn't think she showed up that soon though I knew Diggle was a bit down the road.
    His name is CAPTAIN MARVEL.

    Diggle showed up in the first episode, but it was a few episodes before Oliver revealed himself to Dig. Felicity was only supposed to be in one scene in the third episode, but her chemistry with Stephen was so good they kept bringing her back, until they made her a regular in Season 2. Changed the whole course of the show.

    On The Jeffersons, Florence meets George, Weezy, and Helen Willis in the first episode. However, it was later in the first season before she met Lionel, Mother Jefferson, Tom Willis, and Mr. Bentley.

    In Breaking Bad, I think it was quite a few seasons before Skylar met Jessie.

    Elaine didn't appear in the first episode of SEINFELD. But given the premise of the thread, I don't think that counts. She had already met them all, off screen, since she's one of Jerry's old girl friends.

He's a married man who keeps making excuses to get near Daphne to sniff her hair and make veiled double-entendres. In 1993, that was funny, but it's just a #metoo waiting to happen in today's climate.
    Personally, I ddn't find it funny. And I always believed Niles was gay. In today's climate, he would be gay and they wouldn't try to hide it. As a closeted gay man, Niles' actions makes sense. He's with Maris, his beard, because she's safe. He chases after Daphne because he's overcompensating--trying to repress his true nature by overplaying his attraction to an unattainable woman. He really got himself in trouble when that woman became attainable--I doubt their marriage lasted.

    Frankly I hated both the Crane boys for their ridiculous hyper-sexuality. Who were they trying to kid? For two pyschiatrists they don't have a lot of self-knowledge.

    The fact that the Crane boys are allegedly so smart in the field of psychology but have so many hangups and are unable to solve any of their most basic problems is basically the entire reason the show was funny. Its the same reason the Big Bang Theory was good for so long, same concept. Smart people who are actually dumb.

    You could say its pablum for the masses, but the concept is pretty tried and true in fiction.

    Futurama - Amy, Hermes, and Zoidberg didn't appear until the second episode. And Scruffy was just kinda always there.
    Sounds perfect.
