  • Weird Change of Tone for The Show

    4.0
    One of the things I like about Ben 10 is the decent, above average writing. Characters are credible, grow, have interesting subplots, etc. It's a good show.



    Then this episode came along. I don't know if the writing team changed, they wanted a light-hearted break, or the production team changed, but it was a weird change of tone, and was devoid of the intelligence and characters that make the show great.



    Kevin, to put is simply, is evil in this episode. The team goes to a planet of Looney Toons, and Kevin partners with a weapons dealer. Ben is a sanctimonious jerk. And they fail to solve any issues.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When Ben wants to transform in Humongousaur, the Omnitrix is showing the hologram of Lodestar: so, technically, it isn't a mistransformation.
      Also, although Ben calls Lodestar "a new guy", he already turned into him at the end of "War of the Worlds".

    • Apparently on Probity's planet, everyone shakes with the left hand.
      So when Ben shook hands with his right hand, Probity said that he ruined everything.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Argit: Kevin! Long time, no see! You look different. Did you cut your hair?

    • Kevin: I can't believe we're doing this! Everybody hates war, but nobody ever does anything about it.
      Ben: Maybe that's because there's never been anybody like me before.
      Kevin: Oh, right. The great Ben 10's going to solve everything in one weekend.
      Ben: It's a three-day weekend!

    • Ben: There you guys are! I've been looking for ya all day.
      Gwen: We know. We got the fifty messages you left.
      Ben: It wasn't fifty messages!
      Kevin: It was fifty each.
