I tend to think so too but it seems pretty consistent in my anecdotal experience that you either got introduced young and love them or don't understand what the big deal is.

I haven't met too many people that haven't seen them.

I've never met anyone who saw them and didn't like them.  The more interesting thing is that people who watched them later in life seem to have less of a preference between the prequels and original trilogy.  Or rather, they don't really mind the prequels as much.

That's not my experience with people my age. I know a decent amount of people who are indifferent or actively hostile about Star Wars.

Apparently there's a certain number you're supposed to watch them in.. like 412536 or something

Edit: some blogger suggests 4, 5, 2, 3, 6 (skipping 1 entirely)

What?

Watch them in order or you can skip the shitty prequels and just watch 4, 5, and 6.

The prequels aren't even necessary. I would skip them entirely.

4-6, 1-2, Clone Wars, 3, Rebels.  Only way to go.  As for the prequels sucking, you appreciate them more if you watch The Clone Wars, although Rebels is a better show.

This whole time I thought you were talking about Attack of the Clones when referring to Clone Wars.

Is the Clone Wars a cartoon?

Nope.  It's an animated TV show taking place between 2 and 3 depicting the Clone Wars.  Has all the characters plus Anakin's padawan and some other new characters.  I didn't watch it until my kids were into it.  It's pretty good.

Star Wars Rebels takes place 5 years before Episode IV and has only had one season.  It's a better show, but it's best if you have seen everything else.

There is also Droid Tales which premieres July 6th, but it's Lego and will be more comedic.

If you like anything having to star wars don't let the animation stop you from watching The Clone Wars. The battle scenes are awesome and more fully realized than in the movies. Plus it actually gets fairly heavy at times for a kids show.

You can watch them in story order (1-6), but the special effects drop-off between 3 and 4 might be hard to wrap your head around.

My best to worst episode list (your mileage may vary):  5 < 4 < 3 < 6 < 2 < 1

So starting with episode 1 can be problematic to say the least, but if you want the story in the correct order...
