Episode 130 - Laboratory Basement

Hello everyone! This is a review for:
Dragon Ball Z Episode 130: Laboratory Basement (cue annoying announcer, cool theme music)
              In this episode, Trunks and Krillin decide to let Piccolo, Tien, and Vegeta try to find Cell while they fly to the ruins of Dr. Gero's lab. They plan to search the debris and smoldering rubble to try and find the subterranean chamber where Cell's baby embryo is growing under care of Dr. Gero's super computer. After using energy wave attacks to blow up the rubble of Dr. Gero's lab, Trunks and Krillin discover a ladder leading straight into the ground. They slowly float down and head into the chamber.
             Meanwhile, back at the Kamehouse, Goku just keeps on getting better and better as he overcomes the heart virus and pulls through. He isn't fully rested, however, and needs to stay in bed a bit longer!
             Back at the lab, Krillin is getting ready to blast everything in the area, but Trunks warns him not to, and takes a quick look around the lab, discovering the plans for Android 17!!! In hope of using the plans to find the technological terror's weak spot, they take them and begin to blow up the lab, first destroying various machines, the super computer, and finally, the Cell embryo, firing a double blast together,and as the place begins to come down, Krillin makes a wise suggestion to get the heck out of there! As they flee from the exploding lab, Trunks gives the plans to Krillin, and they agree to split up, Trunks going off to train with his father, Vegeta, and Krillin going off to show Bulma the Android plans, because as you know, she's a whiz with mechanics!
            This episode ends with a cutscene of Cell descending on the city, getting ready for a nice little snack! As he snickers evilly, you're probably wondering: "What happens next?" TO FIND OUT, WATCH THE NEXT EXCITING EPISODE OF DRAGON BALL Z!!!!!!!(cue theme music)
