We kick off a new year of podcasting by finally dedicating an episode to one of our favorite franchises of all time: Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball! With the new film Dragon Ball Super: Broly hitting theatres later this month, we take a look back at the most recent TV series, discussing why it worked so well where other attempts to extend the story beyond the manga have not, and discussing each of the major arcs in detail. We also review the Doctor Who New Year’s Day special, “Resolution,” and come away feeling very glad we don’t have to talk about Chris Chibnall’s abysmal take on the series for at least another year. Jonathan also reviews the surprisingly enjoyable Aquaman and we look forward to the movies and games we’re most excited for in 2019.
