Dude, I love
the Garlic Jr minisaga! My three favorite characters at the time it aired, kicking ass on their own without overbearing amounts of Sayiajin doing everything? Bizarre moments of creepiness and hilarity intermixed at random, and Piccolo reprising his role as the Sexy Genus for the whole thing? I was sold, and I still love it today though Yamcha has replaced Krillian as my third favorite boy. I watch it gleefully.
I do loath Fake Namek though, oi. Something about me being overprotective of my green boys and just something rubbing me really wrong in that whole little plotline.
In terms of filler in general? I've never skipped filler. Some is good, some is bad, but it's a part of the show and if I'm watching the show why would I turn it off o_O I'd only skip straight-up recaps because I was just watching those episodes, why do Son and Freezer need to stare at each other and play a whole episode of things I just saw an hour ago...
I prefer the show for having the filler. It gives us more downtime to get to know people- I can't imagine the whole story preparing for the landing of the Sayiajin going by in one page and I was always heavily disappointed to realize the manga just wiped right on past all of the character development that needed to happen in there (most strongly Gohan's whole story and his developing relationship with Pic) to make you feel for the characters. That, and I'm a sucker for Piccolo lifting pyramids with his mind <_< There's just so many cool, unique little things that happen that are absolutely worth every minute of bad filler to get to.
And as a random note, even I have to admit that's a freaking gorgeous picture of Chichi. I've never seen her look that good with her hair up before. Doesn't that episode also have Pic and Veg sitting at a table together trying to act like they're not interested in the party, but tapping feet to the music anyway or something?
