While ideally watched as complete movies, the recent Futurama DVDs have also been chopped up into episodes to comprise a 5th season (Amy: "No spluh!"). As a whole, some movies are better than others (ITWGY > BWABB in many fans eyes) but chopped up, a segment of a four part arc could actually fare better than a segment of a more well received movie. For example, BBS is liked by many fans, but the first act involving reintroductions and a nude beach isn't as entertaining as the first act of BWABB which dives right in and has a fun self-contained plot, despite what followed in that same arc.

According to you, what is your favorite season 5 episode?

5ACV01 - Bender's Big Score Part 1
5ACV02 - Bender's Big Score Part 2
5ACV03 - Bender's Big Score Part 3
5ACV04 - Bender's Big Score Part 4
5ACV05 - The Beast with a Billion Backs Part 1
5ACV06 - The Beast with a Billion Backs Part 2
5ACV07 - The Beast with a Billion Backs Part 3
5ACV08 - The Beast with a Billion Backs Part 4
5ACV09 - Bender's Game Part 1
5ACV10 - Bender's Game Part 2
5ACV11 - Bender's Game Part 3
5ACV12 - Bender's Game Part 4
5ACV13 - Into the Wild Green Yonder Part 1
5ACV14 - Into the Wild Green Yonder Part 2
5ACV15 - Into the Wild Green Yonder Part 3
5ACV16 - Into the Wild Green Yonder Part 4

I think we could just say "My favorite part was Part 3 of such and such" in here Mind you, ITWGY Part 4 was great

Well we could, but that thread is really about the movies as a whole and consists of people numbering the films from 1 to 4.
The episodes on the other hand, and season 5, are still ongoing (Comedy Central still have 8 more to air) and can be compared differently as I mentioned.

I'll go with BWABB part 2, when Bender joined the League of Robots.

I'd have loved a full on League of Robots episode. The lunch box (if i remember correctly) that Bender mentions could lead to so many things, like recollections from Bender's "childhood" as he watches the League of Robots Saturday morning cartoon. Sort of the cartoon within a cartoon as Itchy & Scratchy was to The Simpsons.

My top 5 in order

1. ITWGY 1: the bender affair and New Las Vegas stuff was the bomb. This was the best episode arc ofthe 4 movies, and  as I posted in another thread, this may be top 10 all time when compared to the whole series.

2. BBS 2: The nudists and bender going back in time to steal the historical artifacts was crazy funny.

3. BBS 4: The ending with the space battle and the twist end with lars was fantastic.

4. BWBB 1: the whole Fry/Girlfriend relationship bit was good.

5. BWBB 2: Like Kurt said, the League of Robots was funny.

ItWGY 2: For me, the funniest stuff in the movie involved the feministas and/or Leela, and this episode really showcased all that. From the sexist name-tags on the melons to the death of Agnew to the utterly confusing communique--it's all gold. Oh, and "Goodbye, sweet goof-bag" was just plain cute.

(An honorable mention to ItWGY 3--I love "cell phone-telephone", and Fry's mustache, and Leela's theory that the murderer is "possibly in the shadows! Or hanging from the ceiling!")
