Yeah, the Tenchi Muyo series is a nightmare to try to organize. But here's Anime Data Base's series' relationship chart to help clear things up:
http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?sho...

-------------- Viewing Order
For casual viewers, it's best to watch:
- Tenchi Universe (1995) - http://anidb.net/a409
*At the far right of the chart, then progress down your way through the relations arrows.
-Or enjoy one of the 2 independent alternate versions (scroll down to Tenchi in Tokyo & GXP).

For viewers who like to watch everything from beginning to end, go ahead & start off with:
- Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki (1992-1993) - http://anidb.net/a205
*Top left of the chart, then go where the relations arrows leads you.

Just follow Hex's Veoh link & enjoy the Tenchi series. ( ^ ^ )b
If they aren't there, then use AniDB's synopsis pages & scroll down to see, which fan-sub groups worked on each series. Then follow those links to the group's website or IRC channel & find out where those eps are distributed.

Some of series are quite old & are hard to find. So if you can't find them, just go on to the next series. :)

--------------Alternate Storylines:
The following two are just alternate versions of the core storyline using the same / similar characters but in a different way (producers rehashing a "winning" story for more money). And they can be watched independently of the two core series (if you want, you can watch them first).
-Tenchi in Tokyo (1997) - http://anidb.net/a337
-Tenchi Muyou! GXP (2002) - http://anidb.net/a=358

The other's are just one-shots which have little to add to the core story:
- Magical Project Pretty Sammy (1996) - http://anidb.net/a741
- Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventures (1999) - http://anidb.net/a82
- Sasami Magical Girl Club (2006) - http://anidb.net/a4116

This is how I'll watch them.

1.Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-ohki OVA 1
Tenchi Muyo! Daughter of Darkness(I read somewhere this takes place after the first OVA, but ignores the others)
Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-ohki OVA 2
Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-ohki OVA 3
Tenchi Muyo! GXP

2.Tenchi Universe
Tenchi Muyo! In Love
Tenchi Muyo in Love 2: Tenchi Forever

3.Tenchi in Tokyo

4.Pretty Sammy

Do you think this is a good order?

This is the order they were release:

1. Ryo-Ohki OVA 1 and 2 (up to episode 8 if I remember correctly)
2. Universe
3. Tokyo
4. GXP
5. Ryo-Ohki OVA 3 (finishes the OVA)

Anyways, I never watch Tenchi so I don't know but read this.

Default Tenchi Order

I'd go with:

Main continuity (1 or 2 "universes"):
Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-ohki OVA 1
Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-ohki OVA 2
Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-ohki OVA 3
Tenchi Muyo! GXP
Photon: The Idiot Adventures
Parallel Dual: Trouble Adventures
Isekai Sekishi no Monogatari ("Saint Knight's Tale")

Alternate continuities:
Tenchi Universe
Tenchi in Tokyo
Pretty Sammy/Mihoshi Special
Pretty Sammy TV (only had a couple episodes)
Pretty Sailor Project S (had at least 1 season)
Tenchi Muyo! In Love
Tenchi Muyo in Love 2: Tenchi Forever
Tenchi Muyo! Daughter of Darkness

True, Parallel Dual only has cameos of a couple characters, and Photon doesn't have any of the characters from the previous stories, but they both lead into the next series, "Isekai Sekishi no Monogatari" which features Tenchi's little brother, and some possible cameos (haven't seen all the episodes).

There's actually one more Sammy series that is newer, and has a completely different animation style. I didn't list it...

There's also El Hazard and El Hazard 2, which may or may not interface into "Tenchi in Tokyo" which has a cameo of a character or two from El Hazard.

Also, I think there's at least one hentai which interfaces with the main continuity, also not listed.

Personally, though, I like watching:

Techi OVA 1 & 2 minus "Zero Ryoko" to OVA 2's Finale
Tenchi Universe from "Earth and Space Adventures" to the Finale

This leaves a bit of a continuity issue with Kione, but it makes for an interesting story... Zero Ryoko is probably the fan favorite, though.
