Watching Episode 0 made me wanted to stop watching midway. However, the series was actually pretty good.

That's how Haruhi milks the cash cow. Broadcast it once and make it random. Then get people to buy the discs to rewatch the series in proper order.

I wish the DVD's showed it in the original broadcast order.

Chronologically, the pacings all off.

Aha. Haruhi does this for you to go crack your brain. Though there's the Net.

The special edition DVDs had it in original broadcast order.

Too bad both the dub and the subtitles suck.

I didn't find the subtitles that bad, and some of the Dub work was actually pretty good.

I do think they should have gotten someone else for Haruhi though.

"Future men"...?

Especially when the dub correctly used "time travelers"?

Yeah no.

I have mixed feelings about the ordering of Haruhi. On the one hand, watching it in broadcast order is just flat-out confusing. On the other, watching it chronologically takes out a lot of the interest and makes it completely anticlimactic. Seriously, I could barely bring myself to watch all of the last chronological episode. But either way, I think Episode 0 should be aired first, because it's what first got me interested in the show, and it's still my favorite episode.

This creates a suspense and longing to look forward to the future episodes. It batters us with questions from the start and then solves them all at once, giving us a huge sense of satisfaction.

This is the power of the random episode order.

It was a great experience and those who got it couldn't agree more that it was genius for kyoani to do this.
Agreed. Haruhi wants you to watch it that way. Just follow law (of Haruhi).

I seriously loved the show after the first tv aired show. I mean, I thought it was clever how they made it look like a totally random show for about 20 minutes and then.... The aspect ratio changed and I was like :O
What's happened? :P
Pretty cool stuff.

I watched episode 0 and then the rest chronologically.
Probably not the best idea, as episode 0 can really throw you off if you dont know what its all about.

Well, the best is to watch both the airing and chronological orders.

Watching the show once is not enough to get one to understand it well.

But its a little pity if one didn't watch their first view through in the airing order.

Its also a pity to not watch in higher resolution because you'll miss out subtle awesome details in the foreground and background. And stuff like Yuki tilting her head or eyes moving by a few pixels for approval.

To bad those come in chronological order.

I'd say that this series should be watched "Ep 0" first, then Chronological order

I was always wondering. Why did they air in this weird order?

Because Haruhi wanted it that way?

It aired that what because it creates a spectacular outcome. It was unique and clever, it creates a real climax towards the end. If it aired chronologically, the climax will be at episode 6 and everything else afterwards would have no relevance or build up.

Plus it's a unique way of doing things.

On an unrelated note, does anyone else think that "The Order of Haruhi Suzumiya" sounds like the name of a cult?
