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 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.

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

      Let's say 2000-2010. I know Spongebob was created in 1999 but it's best seasons (2 and 3) come in the early 2000s. Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network had some of my favorite shows still. Ed, Edd, and Eddy along with Hey Arnold were my absolute favorites when I was younger. Definitely want to add The Last Airbender and Danny Phantom as well- DP had such a catchy theme too.

      I was searching for some cartoons to download and watch, clicked on the mega link but it says the folders unavailable. Clicked on another one same message, I even looked at some old threads for some toons but nothing. Did something happened to MEGA with all the unavailable files?
