  1. Are they connected in any meaningful way? Any major reference between the seasons that indicates “a viewing order” ?

    • The series are connected by recurring characters who appear in two or three different seasons apiece, with some continuing plot threads also recurring. Other than that, the viewing order is based on simple chronology, since the various seasons are pretty good at showing when they occur (with the obvious exception of Apocalypse, which can safely be assumed to come last).

      But perhaps it would be a good idea to make those connections explicit on the page.
