This is the one thing, we don't know, but going back to the beginning could allow for some fresh eyes and get back to some of the basics that drew people in. I would most likely give it a chance but if I didn't like it, well, I wouldn't stick with it. So that first conflict needs to really needs to draw us in.
Now, why am I laughing when I see this? :) I think the one thing they could do is answer some questions we don't know and if they do it well, we'll allow some of the issues to be ignored.
