Black/White or Black2/White2?

I haven't played Pokemon since I beat the main part of Platinum a few years back, and recently got back into it. Would it be alright to just skip B/W and go straight to Black2/White2?

Yeah it would be okay, I rather not watch/play a sequel though than playing the 1st in the story.
Also some Pokémon not obtainable in B2W2 that are in BW if you care about that.

Your call. BW1 has the better story, but BW2 has more diverse Pokémon available and a better postgame. Though BW2 does follow from BW1 and contains some BW1 spoilers, you can get the general idea.

From what the TC mentioned, it seems like he/she could only get one(i could be wrong though).

Again, BW2. They blow the prequels out of the water

It's not really a matter of one or the other, it's just that I feel that my time could be better spent by skipping B/W completely.

^ Pretty much this. B/W gives you a small glimpse into the rivals and antagonist' backstories, however B2/W2 are loaded with enough content and bonus features to make that dialogue meaningless.

You could, but you wouldn't understand most of the story points alluding to BW1. And you'd miss out on some battles and other events earned from synching a complete BW1 save file.

The drawbacks are crap compared to what you can do 100% in postgame. I doubt TC is going to regret not buying the first
