Episode Notes

With Dragon Ball Super: Broly arriving in American theatres this week, we look back on the original three Broly films from the initial run of Dragon Ball Z films (DBZ Movies 8, 10, and 11). The original Dragon Ball movies are a strange beast to begin with – they can be a lot of fun for fans, but they’re also heavily formulaic and mostly plotless – but the Broly films are the strangest of all, creating an infamous antagonist and leaving a huge mark on the franchise without being particularly good. Broly himself doesn’t even feel like that much of a Dragon Ball character, and because of him, these movies tend to lack a lot of what makes the series so enjoyable. We talk about all of that and much more, while also discussing why, despite our antipathy to Broly up to now, we’re so excited for the new film – which we’ll be reviewing in depth next week!
