I decided to start watching Gundam, but which season is the best place to start watching Gundam since there are more than 30 seasons of Gundam?

Start with the old Gundam series for History references.
So, start with Mobile Suit Gundam..

If your looking for a small one, I was introduced to Gundam on Toonami way back with 08th MS Team and I loved it. Kinda a view of one of the wars from a insignificant soldier on the front lines. only about 13 episodes and might be shortened to a movie or ova.

i would also suggest getting a hold of gundam 00 b/c the next season of that will be starting up in a few weeks/months once code geass R2 ends.

Start with Gundam Wing, then check out the Seed series of Gundam Seed and Gundam Seed Destiny, then move on to the greatest one yet, Gundam 00. Or you could just start with Gundam 00 because it's just that good. Eventually you'll have to check out the universal century series.

Start in this chronological order....

Mobile Suit Z Gundam (Do not watch the movie ver. unless you've seen the TV ver. first)

I would say in this order:
Gundam 08th Ms Team
Gundam 0083 Stardust Memories
Char's Counterattack
Gundam Wing
Gundam Seed
Gundam Seed Destiny Special Editions
Gundam 00

The first three are basically the history behind how or why there is a good side and bad side (being in this case Earth Federation and Zeon)

The fourth and last one are similar in basic plot though the last gives more of what the prior lacked.

As for Seed and Destiny, Seed is good whether condensed or not, Seed Destiny you are better off watching the condensed movies which summarize and enhance the overall series as a whole. Although if you do watch the Destiny series watch up to ep 34 then jump to the Special Editions (to save yourself from a multitude of complete slow pacing and less gundam fights and 1 episode of recapping that really wasn't necessary as well as a terrible ending that's only redemption is a single ova that contradicts the other one).

Sadly they ran of money so they couldn't make flashback episodes.

Yup, one of the greatest anime movies ever. (Not counting Miyazaki films though, obviously)

Start with a newer series, like SEED or Wing. If you think you've become a veteran with the franchise or the mecha genre, start watching old stuff like the original Mobile Suit Gundam.
