What order do I watch The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya?

There are two series 1 orderings, 2006 broadcast order, and chronological (DVD) order. Episode 1 of both is the same (so it's the only one out of chronological order in both orderings). (To the other answerer, Episode 1 is "The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina")
Series 2 added 14 more episodes - which weave about the timeline of series 1, and in 2009 they re-aired both series woven together in proper chronological order.
So you have several options, go for the 2006 broadcast order, the series 1 DVD order, or try and watch the 2009 chronological order of 28 episodes (screw this option !).
Do yourself a favor though and just watch series 1 in the DVD order (or broadcast order if you're feeling brave, but you'll have to keep consulting the wiki for a guide as to which episode to watch next).
Then, watch series 2 (gets hard to watch at times - they get stuck in a "groundhog day" time loop for EIGHT EPISODES - aka "Endless Eight"), then the Movie "the disappearance of Haruhi Suzimiya". Definitely watch series 2 before the movie (but you can skip the "endless eight" episodes if you like).
