  • Should be better, much better.

    Despite Dragonball Z Kai's promise to cut down on filler, unnecessary extended scenes and the such, this episode in particular is still suffering from an excess amount of talking. Well the original unedited version also had a super slow start, but either way it doesn't exactly make for a good episode. What it does right is that the story development is pretty decent; for those that haven't already watched the original version, it paces itself decently piecing the story together. The only problem is that the whole mystery of Planet Vegeta being destroyed was completely spoiled by the first episode. Bewilders me why they did it because it throws a few surprises later ahead off.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Look Closely: During Raditz's exposition of the Saiyans, Nappa and Vegeta make a cameo appearance. It should also be noted that while Piccolo's blood has been re-colored purple in this series for consistency, Vegeta's incorrect coloring scheme in this scene has remained.

    • The spelling of "Paradise" in the episode's opening theme "Dragon Soul" has been corrected from "Paradice" in the previous episode.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Raditz: What the hell have you come here for?
      Goku: It's obvious, ain't it? We've come to take my boy back!
      Raditz: Which means even though you may be a Saiyan, you don't want to join our group?
      Goku: That's what I said!
      Raditz: Then you intend to defy your brother?
      Goku: I ain't got any brothers!
      Raditz: Kakarrot... I thought you'd be more sharp-witted...

    • Raditz: That's strange. A warning signal... A battle power of 710? It's close! (turns around to find power sensing device is pointing towards Gohan) Damn. A malfunction, huh? Don't scare me like that...

    • Piccolo: You must have realized that his strength is extraordinary. He's an opponent that neither you nor I can stand up to. However... if you and I team up, then there is a slight possibility that we can defeat him.
      Goku: Just what the hell has come over you?
      Piccolo: Don't get me wrong. It's not as though I have become awakened to peace. I don't care what happens to your son, either. It's just that he stands in the way of the world domination that I am after! We'll team up, but once we've taken care of him and his two pals, I'm going to defeat you. And this time, I intend to take over the world for sure!
      Goku: I won't let you do that... but up through that part where we team up, that's a good idea. Looks like there ain't any other way, huh?

    • Goku: Enough! It doesn't matter if I am some whatever-you-call-it guy from another planet, or if you are my big brother! Anyone like that is a lowlife! I am Son Goku and I was raised here! Now get outta here right now!
      Bulma: Right, right!
      Roshi: Like he said! Whatever his past may be, right now, Son Goku is a fine Earthling, more so than anything else!
      Kuririn: Goku has even saved the world! Get lost! Get lost!

    • Raditz: We Saiyans are a renowned warrior race! Our task is to go through space, searching for planets with good environments, and once we've exterminated those who already live there, we sell them for a high price to aliens who are looking for a suitable planet. Adult warriors embark directly upon planets where those with a higher battle power live. But to planets like this one, which have a lower level, we send babies like you. Kakarrot, given several years, you should have had plenty of time to purge these nuisances all by yourself. If only you had remembered your orders, that is.

    • Goku: Hey, who the hell are you?! Tell me who you are!
      Raditz: (snickers) I'll tell you, then. You are not a human from this planet. You were born on Planet Vegeta. You are a proud Saiyan, the mightiest in the universe!
      Goku: The universe?
      Bulma: Warriors?
      Kuririn: Saiyans?
      Raditz: ... and I am your older brother, Raditz!
