How will Donovan react to seeing the 4th DBZ movie for the first time? How much does Jesse dislike the rock music used in the Funimation dubs? How many minutes are wasted in needless padding? You can't get any better with this episode's wacky topics, so get to downloading and fast!

The Next Dimension: A Dragon Ball Z Podcast Movie Special #1

Putting the series on hold for the time being, Donovan and Jesse discuss the first two Dragon Ball Z movies, Deadzone and The World's Strongest! What follows is over two hours of Japanese children/women singing, bad guys getting away with using the Dragonballs, MAD SCIENCE, and the characters being more awesome than they generally are in the actual show. Further discussed is Goku's morality, Don's prejudice of the Funi Dub in preference for the Ocean Dub (a reversal of the usual opinion), where if at all the movies fit into continuity, and the greatest opening shot to a movie ever. Sit down with some popcorn, grab a seat next to the talking pig or the talking turtle, and get to downloading!
