"I haven't watched this DVD. So I can't say much bout it.
After waking up dazed and disoriented, Goku discoveres that watching him are two giant ogres who want nothing more that to use the hero as a play toy! If Goku can defeat their challenges, the pair vows to show him the way back to Snake Way. But can these two beasts be trusted? Meanwhile, still in shock that Raditz was able to dadge his strongest attack, Piccolo flies off the handle causing him to split in two.
Episode 13: Goz and Mes
Episode 14: Princess Snake
Episode 15: Dueling Piccolos"

"The episodes make up the 2nd half of episode 8 through the first half of episode 10 of the original DBZ dub. Goku has to deal with Hell's fitness instructors, Goz and Nez, while Gohan tries to find a way back home. This volume also has one of my favorite DBZ fillers: The Princess Snake episode. Goku winds up falling into a strange house where the beautiful Princess Snake(who Goku thinks is King Kai and winds up beating up, much to chargin of pretty much everyone there), who's determined to keep hunk Goku from leaving at any costs... and if she can't have him for herself, she'll just have him for dinner? The episode is pretty funny and one of my personal favorites. We also see quite a few scenes, such as cameos from pre Z DB characters, Goku learning of Russian Roulette, and Tenshinhan and Chaozu climbing up Korin Tower to make it to Kami's; it continues to shock me on just how much Saban cut from DBZ in their first run. I'm still not giving it a full 5-star rating due to the fact that we're still incredibly behind(CN finished their UNCUT first 2 season run a month ago!), but I'm happy that vol. 6 is coming out in a month rather than two. Now if they could just bring it up to 2 DVDs a month I'd be at the happiest."
