An exception to what? Why did you arbitrarily decide the rule is to "dislike the show"?
because as I said, the art, the pacing...everything is so badly done...
this anime wouldn't make sense for people. It didn't even introduce Conan for exemple, so non-DC MK watchers won't know who he is and why he's so smart
But once again, you're trying to determine what people (who are not you) going to think about a show, and that is a very faulty reasoning because you're just being hypothetical. You're inventing strawmen who "won't understand the show" in order to explain why people wouldn't (or don't) like the show.
Dislike the show as much as you want, but don't try to invent some sort of a general consensus of what viewers think regarding the show (unless of course you have some statistics that suggest the show was universally disliked). Basically, just because you dislike it doesn't mean most of the viewers dislike it too.
As far as the art goes, it's passable. The pacing, while could be better at some spots, remained fairly consistent throughout the whole thing. There's plenty of stuff to like in the show and it's pretty serviceable overall, even with some of its missteps. (It was certainly better overall than some of the Conan episodes we've had to endure during its run)

The pacing was all over the place, the animation was ugly, the story-telling was sloppy and poorly-planned. This isn't just me or MrDetective who thinks this way... read the Magic Kaito 1412 Anime Discussion Thread. That was the general consensus.
The Ryouma story-arc was the one that was the least friendly to someone who isn't familiar with DC. Conan and co. just show up and suddenly are very important without any explanation or introduction. You can tell that Kaito considers Conan a threat, but you have no idea why, you have no idea what the history between them is, because you never get to see that history. They should have done the Black Star episode first - to show Kaito realizing that this little kid is a threat. Heck, they shouldn't have done the Ryouma case in the first season at all... we're missing a lot of vital development in their relationship. Conan has to go from trying to destroy Kaito to making him an (unwilling-sometimes) ally, which is something that takes a long time.
