I just got a DS, and am looking forward to diving back into Pokemon. I'm going to skip HG/SS for now. Should I play B/W1, or jump straight to this? Are B/W2 considered the "3rd game" (the Pokemon Crystal/Emerald/Platinum/etc) of this generation? Should I just play B/W1 to the end of the story and not do the endgame stuff, saving it instead for B/W2? Or, is it worth investing large quantities of time in B/W1?

This game is a sequel, not a third game. It is much better for gameplay aspects, but as far as story and references you will be confused. You can also unlock a lot of material, including back story (if you're interested in that) with a completed Black or White file. I would say, get Black or White, if only for the purpose of unlocking everything.
You know you read too much when you dream about flying books.
