"Quite possibly the greatest DBZ video shown in America"

"This is so great. I loved it. The music was good, the characters were...themselves, and the plot is very good. Garlic Jr escaped the dead zone, and is up to no good (If you did not already see the movie dead zone, it is a good idea to see that first, although lots will be explained). He uses the black water mist to enslave the people of the world so his father can become the guardian of the earth, and gohan and krillin have a day to save it. They do this by invading the captured Kami's Floating Palace, and using the sacred water to negate the effects. Truly a great saga, but with a rediculous ending, which will be on another tape. This saga remains a must-see for all true fans though. This film was unedited, so it had more of Akira Toryiama's greatness. There is a new introduction on this tape, and the voices are still not as good as the original voices in America. Great news for all dbz fans...The android saga will be here soon, as shown on a preview before the tape starts. It appears funimation got serious in working on some episodes, and it looks like there will be a bright future for dbz in america."
Pimp Muten Roshi

"I read many reviews of the Garlic Jr. episodes - both good and bad. In my oppinion i think these episodes are closer to the stuff you would get in Dragon Ball rather than being Dragon Ball Z. The only consequence of getting it is, you have to watch it in Japanese and read subtitles. That is the only way to watch a DBZ unless you actually know japanese or are japanese. The episodes are a breath of fresh air after watching the Frieza saga drag out (not saying that I didn't like seeing Frieza transform a gazillion times or liked waiting 9 episodes for 5 minutes to pass and Namek to explode). Garlic Jr. and the Spice boys are not the sinister villians usually served up in DBZ but they will suffice because the real treat to this is.....Master Roshi getting back to his dirty ways. The parts where Roshi tries to pick up on Krillin's girl are fantastic schtick that i think DBZ lacks a lot of times. Nothing beats Muten Roshi trying to cop a feel here and pafu pafu over the female anatomy. Plus this DVD sets up for Gohan vs. Cucumber....i mean Piccolo fight. Black Water mist rules then! Very good stuff here ......well at least to me."
The Imortal Tyrant is Back

"Garlic returns from the Dead Zone to take revenge on the world. After taking Kame and Mr. Popo into his custody, Garlic Jr. releases the Black Water Mist on the earth. BWM will make anyone who breathes it become evil. Fortunetely, Gohan, Kirlin, Maron and Ickarus avoid it. However, the rest of the Z fighters attack them. Gohan, Kirlin nd Maron escapes while Picollo fights the rest and gets bitten. After dropping Maron off at Yagerboi's place, Gohan and Kirlin proceed to Kami's lookout with Picolo and Garlic's henchmen awaiting them. This is a real great volume, however you might wanna keep the kids away from the uncut version. There are plenty of scenes from the DBZ movie Dead Zone to help explain if you've never seen the movie. Anyway, a great volume with great action."
Not the best but alright

"I was excited to see this because I was getting bored with the Frieza Saga. It wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. There were some funny parts in it. As much as I hate Krillin I was glad to see he got a girlfriend, even though she was a little strange. Garlic Jr wasn't impressing at all. Even though I own this I wouldn't recommend this for everyone. If you aren't pleased with this tape don't ditch the whole saga. The other two tapes are better."
