E49 – Dragon Ball Z Part 10



With Frieza defeated, it’s time for the next villain to be introduced: Garlic Junior. Remember him?

The Garlic Junior Saga takes a surprisingly Halloween-y turn, and it results in something a little different. Meanwhile, Michael is frustrated by the mechanics of the MacGuffin, Peter is irritated by Garlic Junior’s ultimate defeat, and both hosts breathe a sigh of relief that they can watch a different show now.

E48 – Dragon Ball Z Part 9



Frieza’s dead! Frieza’s dead! Everybody celebrate!

The final battle between Goku and Frieza begins, and it would cool if it didn’t take so long.

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.

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

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

E36 – Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone



There is a lot of wordless screaming in this movie. And courtesy of Scott McNeil, a decent amount of it could be used by a metal band.

In a rare re-revisitation, Michael and Peter see if their impression of Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone has changed whatsoever. Michael speculates on the inclusion of Gohan’s drunken hallucination, Peter points out that Garlic Junior looks exactly like the goblins in Chrono Trigger, and both consider that Garlic Junior is possibly the most effective Dragon Ball Z villain.

Also included: Scooby-Doo/DBZ crossover, Goodfellas garlic preparation, and another reference to Power Rangers monster of the week Shellshock

Next week: Sailor Moon episodes 1-10
