I would use ifoedit to split it to 2 disc. the problem with Episode discs is that they are already compress video (that is how they fit all of those episodes to one disc) so compressing compressed video is not good.
after you rip it with your ripping program, open the main .ifo file of that movie with ifoedit. make sure you associate your ifo files with ifoedit
choose the 'open with' option, the head to your ifoedit.exe icon, then choose 'always open with this program'
Next head to the split to 2 disc option. it will split it to 2 dvd's file on your hard drive
when you are finish, burn it with your burning program
