Why are authors repetitive in extended series?

I just started Top Secret Twenty-One by Janet Evonovich. That's TWENTY ONE. 21! Twenty-one books. Why then, do we have to spend almost two chapters on rehashing who's who in the books. It drives me nuts. If I'm not quite smart enough to start a series off with book number one, then I don't derserve to be told the history. I can understand maybe book 2 or 3. But really? We need to rehash it all in book 21??? Especially when book 20 just came out this past November.
I admit that this is the longest series I read. I do read The Black Dagger Brotherhood books, but JR Ward doesn't repeat the history in each book (and they are only at book 13).
Do you read any long series and does the author do the same. Do you like that it's done or does it bother you like it does me?
