Another kinda newbie question for y'all, but... if I were to be interested in possibly checking out the FATE series', is there an order that would work best to view them in? Or at least one you'd recommend starting with before the others?

I think I would recommend starting with the Unlimited Blade Works TV series (2014/2015).  Fate/Zero is a prequel so you could watch that first but it's the kind of prequel that I feel you would get more out of if you're already familiar with the main story.

Ignore the Studio Deen TV series.  It's not even worth watching at this point.

And once you're done with that, all that's left is to watch Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya.

Fixed that for you.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Not that I disagree (Carnaval Phantasm was great) but he'd need to either watch or play Tsukihime before that.

True dat. I forgot about the whole Nasuverse thing it has going on. You're probably gonna want to bone up on that and and Kara no Kyoka (or whatever its called), which got an excellent set of movies, before taking a trip on Nasu's Wild Ride.

But then again, that's kinda the Nasuverse experience in a nutshell, one of these things will suck you in and then you're in for the long haul until you're so inundated by the in-jokes and callbacks that you're watching and quoting Carnival Phantasm (the alternative outcome is Battle Moon Wars). At least you don't need to mire yourself into Fate/Grand Order or the Imageepoch + successors games as CP/BMW predates those.
