The dub is incredible. I highly recommend watching the show in broadcast order as it was originally intended. You can find that order here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_The_Melancholy_of_Haruhi_Suzumiya_episodes

Haruhi is one of those overhyped anime that ends up being incredibly good despite its popular reputation. It's a show to go into blind. I really recommend the broadcast order. It's not in chronological order, but it makes more sense thematically.

I enjoyed Haruhi when it first came out but over the years I've become more cynical to it.  Some of the jokes are funny and I like a few of the episodes and I like Kyon's snarky narration but I can't stand Haruhi herself that much and I don't like the way she treats Mikuru and how it gets played off for laughs and nobody seems to do much about Haruhi's behavior.  I still haven't watched the second season because even a lot of Haruhi fans have complained about the Endless Eight and it doesn't sound like a good idea to me.  I hear the movie is supposed to be amazing and even people who hate Haruhi otherwise have recommended it but I haven't had the motivation to see it yet.

The Endless Eight is an exercise in madness. I always say to people that if you can't deal with the entire Endless Eight, watch the first, seventh and final episode to understand the point it has to the story (since those three really are important when it comes to getting The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, which is incredible). That being said, artistically I think it's fantastic. It's amazing how they were able to tell the same story in so many different ways. You start to pick up on little changes as the story goes on. The Endless Eight is boring and tedious at times but it's incredibly rewarding when understanding later parts of the story. When you hear that a character has made a significant choice based on the thousands of times they spent reliving the summer, it makes immediate sense not only from a logical standpoint but an emotional one as well. You get it right away.

That being said, I feel that many fans of the show misunderstand what Haruhi Suzumiya actually is. She is not a character to be admired. I see the comedy in her sexual harassment of Mikuru not in the act itself but in the fact that no one will do anything about it because they know it could set off a tidal wave of catastrophes. Mikuru even admits that she let her do it for this reason.

Even accepting the in universe reasons for why they couldn't stop Haruhi's harassment of Mikuru, I still think there's no reason the writers couldn't have placed Mikuru in comical embarrassing situations without having it to be sexual in nature.  I can accept that they couldn't stop Haruhi for the catastrophes they set off but what bothers me most is how Kyon doesn't just let it happen but he looks at Mikuru with pervy eyes and seems to inwardly enjoy the exploitative situations Mikuru is forced into while acting outwardly self-righteous towards Haruhi.  Itsuki only seemed to exist for the purpose of exposition and the only character I really liked that much was Yuki.

@NeonGenesis: That's pretty much why I won't watch the show.
