"Session 5 is almost a break before the episodes that will wrap up the series. Here we get to enjoy what is quintessential Bebop - humor, some scares, and stories with an unexpected twist. Each of these stories introduces a unique character. None will reappear, although is a few circumstances the viewer will wish otherwise. We also get to see an unexpected side of Jet and Spike making a complete idiot of himself (which is normal, I guess).With only one DVD left to go in this series, I am already experiencing Bebop withdrawal. No matter what else I am reading or watching, Cowboy Bebop has always been a welcome change of pace. If you have been watching these along with me I'm sure you have discovered the same thing.Episode 19 - While Spike is getting his old ship overhauled by Doohan - who assembled the Swordfish out of scrap years ago - Faye and Jet try to catch some pirates and get a computer virus instead. Look for a ghost out of the past to come to the rescue.Episode 20 - Jet gets a note from an old friend and feng-shui master. When he arrives he finds Pao's daughter instead and starts on a wild chase for the 'sun stone.' This time Ein puts his paw on the answer and Ed figures it out.Episode 21 - Spike stumbles into the middle of an assassination and finds that he is now being hunted by a deadly maniac in a top hat and ruffles. 'Mad Pierrot' decides Spike has to go to the 'fun' house.Episode 22 - Imagine a bounty hunter with one-third the intelligence of a pumpkin and three times the accident proneness of Faye and you have Andy and his trusty horse. Of course, Andy and Spike have duke it out for who owns the title of 'real' cowboy - and avoid being blown to smithereens by a teddy bear."
Another set of fantastic episodes.

"I must say I'm quite relieved to find that Cowboy Bebop is rebounding back after the slight dip in episode quality I noticed in DVD3 and to a lesser extent in DVD4. I'm happy to report that 3/4 of this DVD is top-quality Bebop material, and it definitely deserves to be a part of every anime fan's library.Episode 19 - Wild Horses
If there is any episode on this disc which didn't quite live up to the Bebop name, it was Wild Horses. The plot is decent enough, but things just seem to move along a bit too slowly.Episode 20 - Pierrot Le Fou
Unquestionably the best episode of the group, Pierrot has comedy and action but most of all, it reeks of creativity. I always enjoy the unique episodes the best, and this one hooked me right from the start.Episode 21 - Boogie Woogie Feng Shui
A decent episode marred only by the fact that the new guest character is almost as annoying as Ed. Otherwise, the space firefight was cool.Episode 22 - Cowboy Funk
Another great episode, obviously intented for some comedic relief after the somewhat emotional end to Boogie Woogie. Andy is a cool character, and the bounty here is a really funny guy. This DVD is a worthy member of the Cowboy Bebop library."

"Cowboy Bebop rocks! It's a contemporary classic that truly relates and speaks to the 18 to 25 generation, I love this show that much!"
