The Review!
Let's get some stuff straight. I rented this DVD. And, honestly, it is not worth $15. Maybe $10, but thats about it. I would strongly recommend buying the Namek box set and get the whole thing. Anyway, heres the review.

While Goku goes through some intense training when the gravity machine in the Capsule ship goes out of control, Vegita gets into a fight with Zarbon while at the same time isolating Bulma and Krillin in a closed area in order to steal their dragonball. Meanwhile, Gohan finally finds another dragonball.

After Vegita pounds Zarbon into the lake, he takes the dragonball from Krillin. On his way back, Vegita discovers Gohan, but misses Gohan's dragonball. An infiriated Vegita must now protect the few remaining dragonballs he has while standing strong against Freiza's bombardment. The last episode deals with how could Bulma can protect Gohan's dragonball.

In the end, this DVD alone isn't worth the money, but sure is fun to watch. Recomended only if you really like Dragonball Z.
