Cartoons often have pretty messed up episode orders, especially older ones (though there are still a few even nowadays that have ordering problems).  When you start binge-watching a completed cartoon, which order do you prefer to watch episodes in?  Please answer in the poll, but if you have some other kind of order you watch episodes in, feel free to select "Other" and voice it in a reply.  Also, I've never done this sort of thing before, so I'm not sure if I can do this text and the poll all in one post, but it's worth a shot.  If there's no poll, just reply, I guess.

 

I myself am a die-hard "Official Wikipedia Order" kind of person.  I find that I avoid continuity errors that way.  (If any such continuity exists in the first place, that is.)  It also makes sure I see episodes that I might otherwise miss for some reason.

Reverse Wikipedia episode list order, like a normal human being./s

 

Generally if there is any confusion as to the order I search to see if there is Wiki for the show and use the list they use as far as chronological order. If not I use Wikipedia.

i personally prefer airing order, but depending on the situation (like the suzumiya haruhi series) episode numbering is the way to go.

Usually whatever the site  listing/download has,unless it skips a number then i double check.

I prefer official DVD release order. Networks have been known to broadcast episodes out of order and I like to watch them in the order the creators intended :)

Batman TAS DVDs are known for having a completely borked episode order :(

I tend to go with the Wikipedia order unless I have reason to suspect I should be watching them in a different order. If I've already seen the series before I might skip around to watch a favorite episode or something.

I like to follow chronological order. Sometimes I won't do it by accident though.

Either the order they were produced or the official DVD order. Chronology matters. I only do mixed if I want to watch select favorites at random times.

Usually I'll watch them in air date order unless something obviously sticks out as wrong, then I'll check DVD/production order.

It depends if it's important to the story. If it is, chronological. Most aren't. So, preferably, by season, at least.

The official episode order/chronological order

Official episode numbering as found on Wikipedia, usually, except for when they are clearly intended to be viewed in another way.

I almost NEVER do airing order, unless it falls into category B, unless it is specifically designed to be viewed in that order, the intended order is always the best.

So when watching Futurama for example, Season 5 is four movies.

When watching Firefly, Serenity comes first, not the The Train Job, I cannot imagine prioritizing airing order over intended order.

If the show's really episodic with little continuity honestly I might even just go by whichever title sounds more interesting. General rule is just to watch in the right order though, if they're mixed up wherever I'm watching I'd use Wikipedia

Usually I'll watch it in the order the episodes aired in (or sometimes in their proper order),

but sometimes I get lazy and just watch it in the order I got it in. It's not that big of a deal

to me if it's a more episodic show. :P
