The battle to decide the fate of the universe begins! On the distant Planet Namek, the seven magic Dragon Balls have been brought together and the dragon Porunga summoned. Now, Goku and the Z-fighters are all that stand between the evil Frieza and his wish for immortality! Having survived their encounters with Frieza’s dreaded minions, Goku and his friends are now left to contend with the ruthless tyrant himself. Despite their recent victories, however, the Z-fighters are ill prepared to face the terrifying reality of Frieza’s power. To defeat this seemingly invincible foe and restore peace to the universe, there is but one hope—a Super Saiyan must emerge!

The third season of the popular shonen (boy's) show Dragon Ball Z continues the adventures of Goku and Gohan on Namek, Piccolo's home planet. Goku, who has been in a regeneration tank since the end of season 2, recovers just in time to challenge the sniggering Frieza, one of the most grating villains in anime history. Having defeated Gohan, Krillin, Vegeta, and Piccolo, Frieza takes on Goku in a protracted duel. When he begins to doubt his ability to overcome Goku, Frieza destroys the core of Namek, ensuring it will explode in a matter of minutes. Enraged by the death of Krillin and so many others, Goku transforms into the one thing Frieza fears: a Super Saiyan, a legendary warrior who appears once every 1,000 years. As the seconds tick away, the two most powerful individuals in the universe duke it out. While they're beating the soba out of each other, King Kai hatches a plan to use the Dragon Balls of Earth and Namek to ensure a happy ending. As the battle between Goku and Frieza intensifies, the kicks and punches fly, producing titanic explosions. But the duel goes on for more than 20 episodes: With only a limited budget and crude special-effects techniques at their disposal, the filmmakers have to recycle footage endlessly. Dragon Ball Z: Season 3 is more entertaining when the viewer allows a few days to elapse between episodes, rather than indulging in a Super Saiyan marathon.

Season 3 of Dragonballz features the whole Frieza Saga. Although I love most of the DBZ Sagas, this is my favorite saga out of all the others.
I remember I alway wanted to get this saga but it was 10 tapes or DVD'S and the cost was around $80-$100, and I could not afford that. But thanks to the new DBZ season sets I could get this for 30 bucks instead.
I'm going to buy this the first day it comes out.
Awesome, dragonball z is amazing the new dvd sets are a must have for all fans. alot of people seem to be disatisfied by the new releases but i can't understand why. thenew stuff is uncut and is of higher quality than i remember it being when i watched years ago, if you are a fan you will not be disapointed. if your one of those really annoying people who try to critisize everything even when its a good thing you will still buy this set and secretly love having all the episodes. Enjoy.
This is where it get's Interesting!!
I don't know about anyone else, but Frieza is one of the most unforgettable villains in DBZ. The thing that places DBZ among the greatest animated shows is one word..."Sagas." Yes, it's the sagas that make this show great. Saga's cause great character development and draws you in to see what will happen next. The Frieza saga, is one of the best. Not only is it the introduction to the Super Saiyan generation, but is also a really long, intense, and captivating battle. The third season is the first one I bought, because it's where DBZ goes to a whole new level. Hardcore fans may say differently but if you want to know where the serious action begins, it's in the Frieza saga. I was skeptical at first but after plopping in the first disk, I was hooked. One of my favorite episodes is when Frieza beats Vegeta to death. I was hooked. Trust me you wont' be dissapointed.
There are some minor downpoints of this DVD Collection:
a) Many are crying over the Widescreen, but trust me, it's not THAT BAD at all. There are a few times where you wish you could see the full frame but come on. The visuals are much more crisp and clear and you can't beat the 5.1 surround sound Japanese music.
b) The dialogue can be downright cheesy to the point of shaking your head. For instance, while in a heated galactical PUNCH-FEST, Frieza (the diabolical, cold-hearted killer) says to Goku "You Dirty Dog!" to which Goku replies "It takes one to know one!" What is this 3rd Grade?
But these minor irritations are hardly enough to stop one from purchasing this bundle. C'mon, what are ya' waiting for? Get it!!
