Where do I begin? Horrible Plots, Lame villains, Kid Goku, Super Saiyan 4 was not as impressive as it should have been. Other characters were pretty much useless, but in DBZ they all had better roles.

This pretty much sums it up.  The worst thing about GT is easily Kid Goku for me.  I guess I didn't mind SS4 that much, but making Vegeta go to SS4 was really goofy.

LOL exactly, a monkey with down syndrome, and a box of crayola crayons would have wrote a better story.

What is the best: DB Evolution or DB GT?

@comicfanforever: GT is better then evolution. The only thing evolution has in common with it's name sake is a few of the character names. GT still looks and feels like its set in the Dragon Ball universe to me, just a very very bad Dragon Ball. Evolution is fun to watch just to see how badly a writer/director/company can utterly destroy a series in every conceivable way, and some how still manage to not have the rights taken away from them.

@Sonata: The appearance Of ss4 was one of the few things i enjoyed about gt. I personally liked it much better then ss3 (although ss1 will always be the best)

DBGT is what happens when Toei kept beating the horse on a franchise that already met its conclusion in the manga and the creator not wanting anything further to do with it. Actually, the franchise could have ended on a couple earlier occasions (*cough* Frieza saga *cough* Cell saga *cough*). But the franchise's mad popularity in Japan kept the horse going, even if it wanted to give out.

@ethan: Indeed. It is however unfortunate that I'm so lazy, or i would get right on it! My inner union prevents me from writing more then one article every 30 days. Those dam unions!

After seeing the intro and Vegeta with a mustache, I knew GT was doomed, yet I watched it anyway. Even the worst DBZ movies were better than GT, but GT looks amazing compared to evolution.

The reason why I detest GT so very much is mainly because they reverted Goku back to Kid Goku, other reasons would be the hopeless plots, pathetic villains and Super Saiyan 4 wasn't as epic as it could have been, I didn't like its design and the last battle against Omega Shenron could have been much better than it was.

Greed. They wanted to reset the show to the wacky roots of (Dragon Ball), yet wanted to keep the over the top super fighting of (Dragon Ball Z) Plus it was just so much less inspired. By that point they had already scraped every inch of the barrel, and the mythos they had set up just kept getting retconed/contradicted.

@John_Martone: Ah I see. Even though I watched it until the end I've always harbored intense annoyance and disturbance at the show.

DBGT is really not that bad. the black star dragon ball saga is pretty gay, wtf do they have to dance for? They should have let vegeta go and get the dragonballs he would have blown up some planets and got the job done quick. Some of GT was ok, the fight against nova, eis, super 17, and omega were decent, however were still of lower quality than the fights in z or db. They made vegeta look like a punk, which is stupid, not to mention what they did to trunks and gohan. SS4 was pretty cool and so was the ssj4 fusion. Overall not to bad, lots of PIS, can't stand the dub, but still worth watching if your a db fan should be noted that both db and z are far better.

Well, what was the purpose? I know we got some fun'ish sequences out of it, but I really feel like the entire thing was just let off the chain. Realizing that there was no good way to spin it, they just decided not to spin it at all. Massive contradictions, and things "just happen" that feel implausible or unnecessary.
 
Like, the reset Goku to being a kid, in the hopes of attracting the Dragon Ball market, who wanted wacky fun, and then, greedily, they just tacked on "well, he turns into an adult when he goes super sayjin..... umm... 4!!! the most super special form of them all!"
