Yukiko just joined my party and I'm curious when the plot starts making, well, more sense. I get that the midnight channel is some sort of alternate dimension accessible thru the tv but other than that I'm a little lost. Does the plot start making more sense as we go along?

I'd ideally liked to know how dungeons are created, as they don't seem to have a reason to exist, they just sort of pop up, I get shadows are repressed emotions and feelings but why did Yukiko get one while Chie and Yosuke just had regular shadows. In addition, Sagi (if that was her name, the girl who died) had a little area herself but at the point when the team shows up she's dead but they still hear her voice, what's up with that?

Basically does the Midnight Channel world get developed more as it don't make a whole hell of a lot of sense right now aside from being a place you go to to kick some ass.

Yes, you get more and more answers as the game progresses however, some points take some level of thinking to figure out.

The story makes more sense, but you will always be subject to a healthy suspension of disbelief. You need to accept that "That's just how things work in this world", if you're going to enjoy or at least make sense of the story.

At the end, there's a fair amount of material that's left up to the player. Draw your own conclusions or look up theorycrafting online.

Saki's liquor store is technically Yosuke's dungeon, I think. Chie is the only one who doesn't get one because she's clearly more enlightened than the rest of 'em. :)

The liquor store was formed from saki.

How? She's dead by the time you go in there.

Dungeon take time to build so only those victim got one since they stay inside for long time. After complete it stay around, even without the source host. The bear explained this himself.

None of persona 4's dungeons collapse when you remove the shadows or the people creating them. The creepy room you first go to is formed by Yamano, the liquor store saki, the castle yukiko etc. You can go back to all those locations. The TV world expands as people enter it.

The reason why chie and yosuke don't form dungeons is that you defeat their shadows the instant they appear. If you didn't then they would create new areas just like the others.

Laaaaame. My headcanon explanation is way cooler and makes more sense than that does.
