Ep 1 was revealed 9/9/09 and released October of the next year, whereas Eppy 2 has been just under five months from teaser to release. I'd say Episode 1 was FAR more painful in terms of drawing things out with media since we had that annoying, but very necessary, delay.
E1 was due for a release schedule much more like E2's originally, only with a period of teasing between 09/09 and 02/10. Very shortly before updates ceased entirely and the game was announced to be delayed, they just started to reveal Lost Labyrinth. My point mainly however was that they went so long just doing nonsense Concept Art Fridays, when it would have been much nicer to see them reveal the game sooner. That much was a painful retread. All they needed to do was show off a bit of Sylvania Castle, then maybe another bit a little later which also revealed Little Planet in the background, before getting to White Park around the time they actually revealed everything. They effectively showed off half of the levels in one go, more if you count the XBL leak.
EDIT: I suppose in a way they've gone with both of the big evils. The followed the E1 route, and then started on the Generations route. At least they got it right when releasing info for '06
