  • Surprisingly good scripting from a show known for terrible dialogue.

    Allow me to preface this review. I love DBZ - it's kitschy, entertaining, and brings me right back to 7th grade. The characters, though they fall into a set of defined stereotypes, are oddly compelling. That being said, the dialogue in this show tends to be, well, rather awful. This is especially true in what are supposed to be dramatic scenes.



    This episode was exceptional in that regard. Rather than coming across as pale, overdramatic, and ridiculous, the dialogue in this episode was outstanding. The balance of drama and action is something I have not previously seen from this series. It's clear how come the characters - and the writers - had come since the show first aired. Well done.moreless

    i'll tell you they picked the perfect person to ful fill their evil plot. boy oh boy did vegeta unleash a great amount of evil and hatred. as soon as that happens, you know some thing bad is about to happen right. i'm going to tell you nothing happened, but some thing extremely bad happens. he kills half of the tournament just so he cen have an all out battle with goku and man will it be exciting. man did goku get mad when vegeta killed all of those people. in fact he got so mad that he treatened supreme kai to move or he'll blast him out the way. so exciting.moreless
