  • Ben's first date with Julie is interupted when a stranded alien calls for help.

    Loved this episode for several reasons. One: there are no DNAliens. Two: we get to see Ben, Gwen and Kevin engaged in ordinary, everyday teen-age activities. Three: Ben introduces us to a new alien warrior, Brainstorm (who has some very interesting powers). Four: we see the characters spending time in the sunlight. This is what has been missing from the series so far. The kids have fun here (in between the action scenes) and so do we. Ben's nervousness about his first date with Julie is both touching and funny. (Who hasn't fretted over going out with someone you really like while sporting a zit the size of a state?) The scenes where Gwen literally throws Ben at Julie in an effort to get them together and where Kevin breaks into Ben's house are also funny. And there is plenty of action. This has all the things that are best about the Ben 10 series.
