E46 – Dragon Ball Z Part 7



Pop quiz: who’s the best character to wish back to life, of these options: Yamcha, Tien, Chiaotzu, or Piccolo? If you said “anyone other than Piccolo is a joke!” you were correct.

On Namek, things are starting to heat up as Frieza finally fights our heroes. Meanwhile, Peter feels anxious about Namekian Eternal Dragon Porunga’s impatience, Michael again talks about his appreciation for Frieza, and both hosts compare the Frieza fight to the duration of entire other series.

Also included: reactions to extreme power levels, other shows we’d like to watch, Tequila Gundam

Next week: Dragon Ball Z episodes 71-80


E45 – Dragon Ball Z Part 6



We return to Dragon Ball Z and find it much like we left it: tediously slow and occasionally hilarious.

Goku finally arrives on Namek, and starts burning through the Ginyu Force like we always knew he would. Meanwhile, Michael shares an anecdote about Philadelphia, Peter defines different types of filler, and both hosts struggle with the knowledge of how long the fight against Frieza is going to last.

Also included: alternate names for Namek, a proposed one-act play, and the dub transition

Next week: Dragon Ball Z episodes 61-70


E44 – Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might



Gohan befriends a cute dragon while the world burns.

The Z Fighters are up to their usual tricks: watching Goku beat the bad guys. Meanwhile, Michael discusses the strange history of the Tree of Might dub and its censorship, Peter talks about mugs, and both dunk on the villain’s goon squad.

Also included: the diminishing returns of Dragon Ball Z movies, the mascot cuteness scale, and Michael’s low standards for DBZ goons

Next week: Dragon Ball Z episodes 51-60

E43 – Tenchi Universe Part 2



Tenchi and the gang head into space in order to stop a coup on Jurai that has deposed Ayeka and Sasami.

Unfortunately, putting Tenchi in space does very little to solve the show’s problems. Michael complains about the one-dimensional nature of the show’s characters, Peter sandbags the dialogue translation, and both hosts generally get kind of salty.

Also included: spaceships in love, character karaoke, and a swimsuit episode.
