Is anyone else a fan of this parody/Gag dub from team Four Star?


I love it. My favourite character is of course Nappa ( he is hilarious and I will quote everything he says)


Do you have a favourite character or joke in the series? A favourite line?

Vegita is ALWAYS boss.

although I liked the Gunyu Force wrestling parody episode the best, out of the episodes I've seen.

I think it's a very entertaining parody series that's only gotten better as the cast and crew have become more experienced. It's pretty fun and is definitely one of the better "Abridged" series out there.

New ep was pretty sweet.

Cell's entrance was suitably creepy.

I really, really liked it until they got off Namek. Don't get me wrong, I still think they have a lot of good jokes, but to me it doesn't feel like the same thing anymore.

When they were doing Saiyan Saga, everything was a bit more clumsy, and that's what added to the charm.

When they were doing Namek/Frieza, it got a whole lot sleeker, and the jokes were still fresh and original for the most part.

Ever since Trunks (the Marron one-shot was pretty funny), I feel DBZA has been a lot more stale, and even a lot more tame than the previous episodes. It's like a comedy version of Dragon Ball Kai now. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but the quirkiness of the Saiyan and Frieza episodes seems to have faded, so the magic is kinda gone for me. I should have known that it would only keep my attention for so long, though.

I've always preferred Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged to DGA, but Team Four Star is still pretty hilarious.

It is pretty much the best, and Two Saiyans/Krillin Plays have grown to be almost as great in their own right.

The last episode in particular just killed it, and I'm wondering if it's going to follow through on the paradigm shift the last few moments suggested.

I absolutely love TFS and DBZA is fast becoming my go to when I'm bored. I might even go so far as to say it's better than the original.

Well Dragonball Z in general isn't all that good. It has a lot of charm that carried over from the original Dragonball and I still love it to death but it's not what I'd call good.

Gryphon
05-25-2014, 02:53 PM
I do feel that a lot of the charm of the earlier episodes was because it was more amateurish which is lost in the newer episodes

Froggy
05-25-2014, 03:42 PM
Well that and freezes

Vegeta stole the show for me when he showed up

And trunks had a great entrance episode

Plus we also got from these episodes the abridged Vegeta/trunks relationship

I agree, I eventually grew out of my love for DBZ but this made it better. It keeps me going in the two year hiatus between Venture Bros seasons. They both have that action-comedy feel, that doesn't need to sacrifice coherent storytelling.

Wish they could make some money with it.

It also helps that they cut out the pointless filler that the original show had and even managed to make the Frieza Saga more entertaining than the original. I know back in the day everyone praised that arc but I found it overrated IMO due to the fact that the final battle itself had more talking and less fighting

Oh my gosh I forgot all about Mr.Satan aka Hercule(stupid). The Cell series will have so much material to work with I honestly can't wait.

These guys are so very good at lampooning all the characters that it's a shame they don't have better resources. It makes it all the more special that these guys do the DBZA for free and that they show so much respect to the actual source material. It's too bad about their Titan's Abridged though. Man that first episode had me crying.

You should check out their Hellsing and Yugioh series. Those are pretty good.

Cell Saga has been TFS at their best. The transmission/androids joke last episode made me laugh so hard and Cell is super creepy. And thanks Legato for suggesting Hellsing, another feast for my funny bone.

If anyone has a chance, they should check out the Bro Force video from Team Four Star. It has Vegeta playing the game and you will definitely not be disappointed.
