First of all, they're not teens. Secondly, there's no water involved. That whole Hunger Force thing? That's probably misleading, too. In short, if you have to ask what Aqua Teen Hunger Force is about, it is probably not a show for you. The rest of us will go on thrilling to the adventures of Frylock, Meatwad, and Master Shake as they, you know... hang out.]]>

Volume 5 is for fans of the show only, though the Boost Mobile episode was an instant classic. The show took a bizzarre, edgy and weird-for-the-sake-of-weird turn. It's almost in the tradition of Modernist playwrights like Harold Pinter at times. The episode "Party All The Time" is more art than cartoon, and plays with your emotions more than you thought possible from a "stoner cartoon". This volume proves ATHF is smart, and loves to push the boundaries of TV and the concept of Cartoons in general.
Die hard fans will not be disappointed, but newbies should start elsewhere to learn the ropes.
The episodes and my favorite lines from them:
1. Dirtfoot: "It's got blondie. Lemme tell you, where she AIN'T A BLONDE!"
Master Shake, in yet another ridiculous attempt to get laid, traps himself down a well, which Frylock and Meatwad find to have an apartment down below, where they also meet Shake's roomate Dirtfoot, a legendary monster who 'comes to terms with himself' in this episode.
2. Boost Mobile: "(Meatwad crying after Frylock tells him he doesn't have hair)"
Shake becomes a Boost Mobile ad-plugger.
3. D***esode: "Tonight you will get your d*** ripped off...that doesn't sound right does it?"
Probably one of the most controversial episodes of all time, and also one of the ones that makes this set get all the venom it does (Joyce). Carl peels the bottom of his fast food cup off, and gets a...terrifying (at least to any male being on the face of the earth) "prize".
This episode has censored and uncensored visuals optional on the DVD, and if you hit uncensored, you will seee things you wish you'd never seen (do it, you'll see what I'm talking about). Also, the work "dick" is used 53 times.
4. Handbanana: "Tonight...you."
Another big controversial episode that makes this DVD set such a big deal (Joyce again). Frylock makes Meatwad a dog which Make-Your-Own-Dog 1.0, a dog in the shape of Shake's hand, named Handbanana, who is very interested in Carl (Again, you'll know what I'm talking about).
5. Party All the Time: "PARTY PARTY PARTY I LIKE TO PARTY"
Frylock finds he has melanoma on his face, and is diagnosed with cancer. This does end well, but in the meantime Andrew W.Read more ›
The rest are mostly pretty good, and a few decidedly weak.
While this series has worn off a bit from when I was first enthralled by the sheer dada-esque insanity, the best episodes still transcend to amazing levels of bizarre, gross, surreal humor. When your starting premise is a giant talking shake, fries, and wad of meat living in New Jersey, how wrong can you go?
In regards to the quality of the show this volume-- it is not as content rich as Season 4 was. But come on people, COME OOOOOOOOOOON. You can't blame the writers, who spent most the season creating a full length movie for the fans, for the fact that they had less ideas in Season 5. I am glad they dedicated their efforts to a movie-- which I also own-- and that I have that AND volume 5 to enjoy, not just one, or the other.
All in all, volumes 3 and 4 are the best. But season 5 is plenty good for any fan and when combined with the others and the movie there's plenty of material available until the next volume arrives.

|Is volume 5 of ATHF season five? or is season five what is airing right...||
I think Volume 5 is the episodes that were aired in the years 2005 and 2006. Right now they should be on season 6 (or volume 6). I think they had less episodes over the past two years because of the movie release.
