  • Caught in a Trap Again

    In Space, Bulma is already beginning to find the journey very boring. Meanwhile, Krillin and Gohan train themselves through spirit-training. Back at the hospital, Goku is trying to rehabilitate himself by doing sit-ups. The doctor finds out and makes sure he gets back into bed. Chi-Chi goes to the roof of the hospital to think about Gohan.
  • Basically they are on a spaceship and they keep on walking and end up being captured.

    I love this show but this episode was a bummer.

    All they did was avoid booby traps (like thats new). there was a little Training going on between Krillen and Gohan (they did it in there minds)
