"I must admit,I had my doubts going in to this show. I am a huge fan of Dragonball Z, having grown up with it, and had recently just finished watching the original Dragonball show. From reviews I read online of Dragonball GT though, I wasn't sure if this was going to be for me. People said it had plotholes, wasn't true to the original story, was slow and boring, etc.
But let me tell you, it isn't.
I actually quite enjoyed this season of Dragonball GT. It felt nostalgic, not only by placing Goku back into a child form, but also by finding the right balance between comedy and action, like Dragonball did. It was nice to see Trunks grown up as an adult who wasn't from the future, and it was also nice to see how Pan ended up, trying to follow in her Grandfathers footsteps. Giru was a little annoying at times though.
Overall, you get a nice introduction and foundation to what is a good show. While this box set is advertised as including the baby saga, it actually doesn't have the complete saga, with the last few episodes being in Season 2. You do however get to see SS4 Goku, who is pictured on the front cover, and I think he suits it nicely. I actually enjoyed this season more than the second one, so if you were like me and wondering whether or not to invest in this, take a chance on it, and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised."

"Many people to my surprise hate GT(I personally love DBZ and Dragonball was awesome too. I personally love the series I felt like Pan, Goku, and Trunks searching for the dragonballs at the beginning of this series was a very nice nostalgic element to the series, getting ot see Goten, Trunks, Vegeta, Bulma, Gohan and the rest of the gang in their much older forms is pretty cool, especially if you've been following the series since you were a child, most fans grew up on the series, but newcomers can still enjoy this series (If you like GT, you'll love Dragonball and DBZ). This box set covers the Black Star and Baby sagas(though a few episodes of the Baby saga end up being on season 2). The Season one box set includes a booklet that gives you a brief summary on characters and episode descriptions, which is a very good tool for those who are new to the series or who want to come back later to watch their favorite episodes. The marathon feature is great for quicker viewing, they've got textless songs, andanese audio for those who want to see the series in its original form. The DVD includes 34 episodes on 5 discs, and although the first 15-16 episodes are entertaining, there's not as much fighting as hardcore DBZ fans are used to, but it quickly picks up as the Baby saga gets underway and continues onward from there. If you're a fan of the series, I recommend adding GT to your collection, and at the reasonable price 0f around $18, it's worrh it."
