Except season 1 came out first. That was the bar.
I simply can't reward farming your product out to an incompetent company, then expecting the customer to pay for it as though it's as good as where the bar was set previously.
To say you'll never buy another season until they "fix" 2, despite 3,4,etc. being excellent, is throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
No it's not.
I can still watch the show on several other formats. However, if I'm going to open my wallet to buy it on BD, it's got to be right.
Since I'm not buying season 2, I don't see the need to buy the rest beyond and leave an empty spot in hopes they'll fix it - and they likely won't if everyone buys it and considers it "good enough".
Now, if you wish to put up your money to let me include it in my collection, then I'll buy the rest. However, it's my money to refuse to spend on their poor judgement in friends to trust with their personal property.
Essentially, they loaned their neighbor a perfectly decent lawn mower and got a poorly running one back in return. Now they aren't going to demand it be fixed at the neighbor's expense.
