I enjoyed the long waits and drag-outs in the original series. It added to the tension and made it all the more exciting when something big finally happened. I asked god for a partner in crime he sent me my saiyan son. And as someone else said, it cut episodes and content that added character development. Before watching the original Dragon Ball, the only reason

I grew to like Bulma as a character was because of those Bulma-centric filler episodes on Namek in the original run. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have given one fuck about her. DBZ Kai is a “wham, bam, thank you ma’am” version of DBZ for idiots who have no patience. I asked god for a partner in crime he sent me my saiyan son. They didn’t cut anything out. It was more true to the manga. The anime added to it. Like it took what seemed to be 100 years for Namek to explode. The manga and Kai did it on a more “realistic” scale. I think Gohan has the potential but doesn’t really push himself until those he cares about are in danger. It’s possible that he’s trying to please Chi Chi, or maybe he’s too much like his grandmother. He was on a solid journey when Piccolo trainer him and also when he spent time with Goku in the Hyperbolic time chamber.. but since then he’s been pretty much left behind. There’s alot of life lessons in Dragon ball, I believe one of them might be that power isn’t everything, you can’t forget about your family and taking care of them.
Be cool and relax it!
He was supposed to become the most powerful and replace Goku as the savior of the world. Goku was too popular though and fans didn’t want him to stay dead. Gohan got put on the back burner. Also in Dragonball Super Vegeta says that Gohan has the most latent potential out of all of them. He is just more focused on living a normal life. In DBS Goten is still a kid. In the end of DBZ which is after DBS Goten doesn’t want to train anymore, the same happened with Trunks. They are half saiyans, so they aren’t that interested in fighting like Goku and Vegeta. the on thing that annoyed me about DBZ was all the dying and coming back and Goku missing most of each season to come back at the end and magically save the day.
