Can someone please explain Ben 10 to me?

11 posts in this topic

It's my understanding that the new Ben 10 is total crap.  I'm assuming the original series is good, of course.  Everyone always loves the original.  But what about the other 3?  I'm wondering what the general consensus is on those.  As someone who's never seen an episode of Ben 10 in my life, I just want to know what I might be getting myself into.  Also, Omniverse's description on Wikipedia confuses me.  Is it a sequel series, an alternate universe, or something else?

 

Thanks in advance!

Personally I think everything before Ben 10 Omniverse is pretty good. Ben 10 original being the best, I enjoyed the slightly more mature storytelling of Alien Force and Ultimate Alien

 

Omniverse is where the show shit the bed for me, Ben became much dumber, totally retconned character... Gwen and Kevin left. The show turned to a more comedic style which might have been good if it was actually funny.

 

Omniverse is a direct sequel to Ultimate Alien which itself was a continuation of Alien Force, which was a continuation of the original. Shame it retxons everything good about the series

Hmm, okay.  Anyone else agree with EccentricOne?  Just want to get as many opinions as possible.

All righty, then.  Two opinions is a strong correlation, so I'll leave Omniverse off my list.  Thanks!

Anyone else is welcome to give their opinions, though.  I'm not closing this topic just yet.

what happened to make the series/franchise go south?  Was there creative changes or was it just whole sale changes on the entire team?

 

I remember watching the sporadic episode many years ago and enjoyed it.  WAnting to get into it again, but hearing stuff after a certain point is not very good is concerning

Based on what EccentricOne and DRX said, the first 3 series are the ones to watch.  I'll pass on the 4th series and the recent reboot, since those are the ones that are apparently bad.  Also, EccentricOne described what happened to the 4th series, if that helps you at all.

Not really sure which one you're referring to, unless you think they're all terrible.  In the latter case, I would have to disagree, because I'm most of the way through the original and loving it.  I can't wait to watch Alien Force and Ultimate Alien.

As a side note, just out of curiosity, is there anyone out there who actually likes Omniverse?  Just wanna make sure I see all sides before I totally dismiss it.

Personally, I couldn't handle sitting through the original series if Ben were any more childish and bratty, Gwen is an improvement at least, I don't think the show is bad, but I just cannot relate to the main character, at all. (Even more so than the average kid centered TV show)

I do agree that the first three are the ones to watch, but PERSONALLY I find the second and third better simply because the main character is more bearable, if it were not for that, I'd massively prefer the first.

Okay @avalpsychicguy I have to be totally honest with you, there are quite a few episodes of omniverse that truly were worth watching :ph34r:

      I just thought I'd share with you which cartoons I've liked, which cartoons I haven't liked, and which cartoons I plan on watching.  I'd like you to tell me which cartoons you'd recommend to me!  Feel free to "second" the ones on my list, too.  It gives me a better idea of what kinds of cartoons you like.  Keep in mind that while I have watched a handful of anime and adult cartoons, I am generally not interested in them, so there's no need to mention them.
       
      Currently watching:
       
      Ben 10 I'm in Season 3 right now, and I'm really liking it.  I just wish the writers hadn't gotten rid of Ghostfreak.    He was one of my favorite aliens.  
      Cartoons I've liked*:
       
       
      Honorable Mentions:
       
       
      Cartoons that I plan to watch**:
       
       
      Cartoons I'm not interested in at the moment, but I may watch someday:
       
       
      Cartoons on hold:
       
       
      Cartoons that I stopped watching due to a lack of interest:
       
       
      Cartoons that are objectively bad:
       
       
      *List is in approximate order of favorite (top) to least favorite (bottom)
      **List is in the approximate order that I plan to watch them in

      Boomerang has Vietnamese dubs of shows like The Powerpuff Girls (1998), Ben 10, Krypto the Superdog, Baby Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo, and Duck Dodgers on YouTube. But for me, all the videos are not available in other countries outside Vietnam. If anyone in Vietnam or VPN the channel, put all of them in the Mega folder. Thank you!
