TV review

Stone Vann

The TV show I picked is called Dragon Ball Kai. It is aired on the network called Adult Swim. It is usually played every Saturday at around 8 or 9 PM. It follows the main character Goku along with his friends defends earth from intergalactic fighters and conquerors, unnaturally strong androids, to near invincible magical monsters. Dragon Ball Z follows Goku into his adult life and how he grows older and more powerful.

The main characters name is Son Goku but Goku for short. He is based on Sun Wukong, a main character from the Chinese novel Journey to the West. Early in the series , he was thought to be an earthling but he was revealed to be a member of an extraterrestrial warrior race called Saiyans. As Goku grows and matures, he becomes one of earths mightiest warriors and protects his adopted home planet, Earth, from villians who wish to harm it. Goku is depicted as a carefree and cheerful person but quickly serious and strategic when it comes to fighting.

A minor character is his friend, Piccolo. At first he was one of the most powerful characters beside Goku. As goku grew stronger Piccolo was getting outclassed because of Gokus race as a saiyan. Goku would train constantly to get stronger to protect Earth and everyone he cares about. Piccolo trains Goku’s son, Gohan, to get him strong just like his father.
