How can Skyrim not grab you? It has a much more exciting and [seemingly] dynamic intro, the game world is far more interesting AND varied stylistically and thematically and many quests are more interesting than those of Oblivion. Oblivion was extremely dull in every way possible. Morrowind is my favorite ES game but Skyrim (which admittedly I've yet to finish) is not far from it.

Obviously you pointed out you're in the minority, and I'm not attacking you or saying you're wrong, I'm just curious, what exactly is it about Oblivion that made you finish it twice? Or what is it about Skyrim that isn't "grabbing" you?
Oblivion cares about YOU!
