So I started watching the shows on Netflix, a series of episodes called "Brotherhood'. I finished both sets of the series, and while looking for more, it seems the only other series on netflix (streaming not mail) appears to be much earlier episodes. So I imagine I didn't start watching this in the proper order. Can anyone tell me the proper order for watching the series or picking up where the Bortherhood episodes ended? If I have to back track, fine, but what I found that seems like older episodes contains about 50 or so shows and that's a lot of back trackingk. Can anyone help me?

Thank you GD,

Brotherhood is a redux in a way.  It's a realization of the original comic that is more canon.  

The other series is the original series which has extra fluff in it but tells the main story.  Sorta.

If I was you, I'd either wait for the next episodes of Brotherhood to come out on streaming, or get the discs through netflix.  The series is complete in japan, and I'm pretty sure the final US disc should come out soon.

You could watch the other series in it's entirety, but the whole thing will come off as confusing.

The original show FullMetal Alchemist had 51 episodes, whereas FMA:Brotherhood has 64 I believe.

Brotherhood follows the original manga pretty closely as I understand it, while the original FMA had a lot of original content.
You dont really need to watch the first series as brotherhood is more a reboot than a sequel

Check in this thread, Im sure you can get more help in there
