I just realized what is was that makes DBZ so rewatchable for me, the complete lack of pre-teen, whiny, babbling, incoherent drama and retarded ship-faggotry (minimum amounts at least). All of that pansy bullshit was taken care of off screen. Unless it was for comedy or preparation , there was hardly a part where someone wasn't getting their ass kicked.
It was long-winded as fuck as far as certain fights went (Namek), but I was at least not bored by constant flash-backs or pointless drama. It was ACTION and AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH about 80% of the time.
Cool, now you can write that down in your personal diary to remember that for next time.
