Death and Rebirth gives you a quick breakdown of the series and gives you bits and pecies you missed because .. well.. they never showed you. Yes, it's pointless, but it's not booring.
Saw the Dub at Anime North: Not too bad at all really.
End of Eva is the 'actual' end of the series, though I take the end of the series (25 & 26) over EoE anyway. I look at EoE as eyecandy.
