I decided to rewatch the show on Hulu and love it just as much as I did 8 years ago, if not more. However, the episodes are horribly out of order, with James jumping back and forth between grieving his Dancing with the Stars embarrassment and nervously prepping for his debut on the show. Does anyone who has the DVD complete series know if the episodes are in order?

They *mostly* are, however it's not irritating when they're not because disc three is the only disc that's slightly out of order. The remaining S1 unaired eps are in the middle of that disc so you can easily watch them first and everything else plays out correctly. I didn't watch the show live (though I caught eps on demand shortly after it finished) but from what I understand, season 2 was released out of order and the discs correct that to the sequence I see posted online (though it seems that some folks on reddit have a slightly different arrangement). It played fluidly for me using Paste Magazine's list: (I copied/pasted it below, spoilers for size)
SpoilerShow
Season One
1×01 – “Pilot”
1×02 – “Daddy’s Girl…”
1×03 – “Mean Girls…” (originally aired as 2×10)
1×04 – “Making Rent…” (originally aired as 1×05)
1×05 – “The Wedding…” (originally aired as 1×04)
1×06 – “The Scarlet Neighbor…” (originally aired as 2×09)
1×07 – “Whatever It Takes…” (originally aired as 2×05)
1×08 – “It’s Just Sex…” (originally aired as 1×06)
1×09 – “The Leak…” (originally aired as 2×12)
1×10 – “The Parent Trap…” (originally aired as 1×03)
1×11 – “Shitagi Nashi…” (originally aired as 1×07, the Season One “finale” — in its defense, it actually worked as such)
1×12 – “Bar Lies…” (originally aired as 2×06)
1×13 – “A Weekend in the Hamptons…” (originally aired as 2×07, the actual Season One finale)

Season Two
2×01 – “A Reunion…”
2×02 – “Love and Monsters…”
2×03 – “It’s a Miracle…” (originally aired as 2×04, the production code even says it should’ve come before Halloween episode “Love and Monsters,” despite being a Thanksgiving episode)
2×04 – “Sexy People…” (originally aired as 2×03)
2×05 – “Paris…” (originally aired as 2×08)
2×06 – “Teddy Troubles…” (originally aired as 2×14, post-cancellation)
2×07 – “Monday June…” (originally aired as 2×13, post-cancellation)
2×08 – “Dating Games…” (originally aired as 2×11, the last episode aired before cancellation)
2×09 – “The D…” aka “Making the Grade…” (originally aired as 2×15, post-cancellation)
2×10 – “The Seven Year Bitch…” (originally aired (originally aired as 2×16, post-cancellation)
2×11 – “Using People…” (originally aired as 2×17, post-cancellation)
2×12 – “Ocupado…” (originally aired as 2×18, post-cancellation)
2×13 – “Original Bitch…” (originally aired as 2×19, post-cancellation) ***the last five technically aired in order

I found this similarly frustrating during my recent rewatch. When Netflix had the series, they were shown in chronological order. I wish Hulu had done the same.
