The Top Ten

1 Episode 5: Ballad of the Fallen Angels

Really, were you expecting anything else? So much revealed really just with still shots in about two minutes. Also, the action was stellar in this episode. - Elric-san

I love this episode. The best part of the episode was the song rain.

Cowboy bebop is the anime of all anime that it will make u eat taco bell 5 days straight. Episode 5 is what hooked me on the show like nothing else and so good😂😂😂😂

2 Episode 12: Jupiter Jazz Part I
3 Episode 20: Pierrot Le Fou

Absolutely in the top 5. Best stand-alone episode with some of the best action.

That creepy fat guy reminds me of the Penguin from Batmam

Incredibly dark and psychedelic espiside. The villain is as crazy as they come. Should’ve continued as a subplot.

4 Episode 13: Jupiter Jazz Part II
5 Episode 26: The Real Folk Blues Part II

A beautiful ending.

So sad

6 Episode 8: Waltz For Venus
7 Episode 25: The Real Folk Blues Part I
8 Episode 18: Speak Like a Child

Gets me teary eyed every damn time I watch it.

9 Episode 17: Mushroom Samba
10 Episode 24: Hard Luck Woman

The Contenders

11 Episode 2: Stray Dog Strut
12 Episode 1: Asteroid Blues
13 Episode 16: Black Dog Serenade

Gotta say, while it probably has a lot to do with my particular love of film noir, I really dig this episode. It's nothing super special, but I think it's pretty perfect for what it is. - OomlaGuhmaGagh

14 Episode 11: Toys In the Attic
15 Episode 10: Ganymede Elegy
16 Episode 3: Honky Tonk Women
17 Episode 23: Brain Scratch

This episode was hilarious. Watching Spike get annoyed with someone who was exactly like him was the best.
