Not too many shows leave me HAVING to watch the second episode. It's usually more that I'll like it, but can put off continuing it for a little while. But there are a few shows where the first episode was so amazing that I had to come back for #2:

Code Geass
Death Note
Bleach

Hmm, that's a pretty good question. There aren't many that have done that to me, but there are some. Most that I do get hooked on take until episode four or later.

80% of my collection

Sometimes the story takes a few shows though to make it hard to pause for the day.
While not technically anime, currently I am a big fan of Hatsune Miku.
At least I can go see her in concert.

Death Note and Higurashi. Ok, maybe Higurashi was from episode 2 or 3, but that's close enough, right?
