People have fun with Mr. Beer. That's what counts at first. Getting interested in the process and actually making BEER! I would imagine that you will find yourself gazing at the thing, much like people watching fish in an aquarium. If it had a regular air lock, where you could see the bubbles of CO2 escaping, much more so.
I've read here where quite a number of people started out with Mr. Beer. I've never seen anyone curse the things. Though, most usually went on to expand their horizons eventually.
With making two gallon batches, you can also try different varieties of beer, without discovering you have made five gallons of something you don't really care for.
