    So that's how this arc ends? Deus Ex Sleepina?

    EDIT: My 700th message and I didn't even notice.

    And Earth is saved thanks to Beerus having to take a cat nap

    After all, there are thirty-one innocent flavors of ice cream on Earth, as all as many tasty animals!

    Going from last week's DBZ Kai to this...

    Videl helped save the Earth merely by BEING PREGNANT.

    The good news is this is the only arc in Super that feels longer then it really needs to be and things really start to pick up after this. The bad news is that first we all have to sit through the Golden Freeza arc which is the nadir of Dragonball that isn't GT or Bio Broly.

    I think the movie version did the story a lot better in the end. Beerus had the wisdom befitting a god while here he's too goofy and selfish. I find Goku selfish with using King Kai's planet as a personal gym and willing to challenge anyone to prove himself, even if it means the destruction of a planet or universe. His constant loss of power, then re-power was very annoying in this episode. The series dragged the battle for too long (no surprise there), while in the film version, the battle was much more action-packed and beautifully done, which proves that sometimes more is less.

    I definitely preferred the movie version of this story. The fight between Goku and Beerus was longer but also a little pointlessly longer. What was the point of repeating Goku falling through Earth's atmosphere twice? He summoned up his strength one last time and still lost? It was a pointless beat.

    IMHO it only would've made sense if Goku and Beerus reached some kind of stalemate. No Goku couldn't actually defeat Beerus, but Beerus is aware that Goku could become even stronger again one day and still become an able match for him.

    And as ShadowBeast pointed out, in the movie, Beerus actually had an interesting wisdom about him in the movie. I thought the realization that Whis was actually Beerus' teacher was very interesting and profound. To me it was Beerus saying as powerful as he was, even he has someone who is stronger than him and it was the unassuming and innocuous looking Whis.

    I didn't think this story was terrible, but it did seem somewhat perfunctory ahead of the more interesting storylines for the show.
