"So, without further ado, here is the one, the only, Dragon Ball" - Chadwick Jones
The Dragon Ball Lookback is a subseries that constitutes the latter half of Chadwick Jones Presents Season 2. It broke away from the traditional review style that the show was known for and instead became an overview for the entire Dragon Ball franchise. Along with that, it also introduced a new villain, Chadwick Jones' brother Marvin Jones.

Structure Edit

The Lookback has a very different structure from a typical Chadwick Jones Presents episode. Instead of each episode being a review of a singular product using jokes and comedy to heighten a point, the lookback is more a summarization of a select group of episodes with bits of comedy strewn in to keep one's attention. Unlike a review, it lacks any kind of analytical portion. In fact, in Episode 1 the end credits say that the review score during the lookback was to remain a 9/10 "until further notice", showing that the point of the miniseries isn't really to scrutinise and rate, but to experience and learn.

There are several running gags throughout the miniseries, including a montage parody that gets shorter and stranger with each incarnation, an avoidance to saying the name of Staff Officer Black, and a dark subplot of the narrator becoming an alcoholic and killing himself with two other people.

The Lookback contains story elements at the end like normal episodes, this time showing a branch of the Panther corporation for the first time, this part of it led by Marvin Jones, who is the brother of Chadwick Jones. The ending of each episode showed him closer and closer to arriving at the PRU New Zealand base, heightening the tension until the final conflict in Episode 8 and eventually the Season 2 Finale.
