Again, TPM does introduce people to certain characters, entities and events that are relevant later on. How does not showing it enhances their understanding of the other movies (specially Episodes II and III)? This problem wouldn't exist if you either show them all the prequels or avoid them all together. Would you show Episodes V and VI to someone without showing Episode IV as well? The same applies to the prequels. The only stand alone movies are I and IV.
