Thoughts on Popular Culture and Unpopular Culture by Jaime J. Weinman (email me)
It might also be the fact that the 1st season of MI allowed for humor and character development, something specifically banned in future seasons.
I remember as part of a summer day camp trip in 1966 going to the CBS headquarters in New York, where we were given a mini-tour of the facilities and then taken into a room to watch the MI pilot episode. Pretty violent stuff (for the time) to be showing to a bunch of 9-year-olds, but my main gripe was when I found out it would be replacing "The Munsters" in the CBS Thursday night lineup.
