  • Best ep u could have EVER WATCHED

    Okay. I shall make a duplicate of this and put one in Part 1 and one in Part 2 (since I am reviewing them as one whole).

    This episode is the yet the best episode you could have ever watched. Seeing Azmuth unlock the master code and seeing the Omnitrix full abilities of mixing alien DNA, this is my personal favourite.

    A War. That is what thrills me the most. This finale is better than X = Ben + 2

    Realizing that even the Galvans could lose to the Highbreed, how would Earth defend? Well of course, with the alert of Azmuth and Paradox about the incoming attack, Ben summons all his allies to help against the Highbreed.

    Now they travel to their home planet to stop the invasion.

    This episode rocks!moreless
  • The Best Birthday Gift: part 1

    I would like to start things off by saying this really was the best 'gift' Cartoon Network 'gave' me on my 16th birthday. I was laughing up a storm when I found out what Kevin's full name is. Ben's right about him officially losing "all remaining pretense of cool". I was also glad to see Cannonbolt, Upchuck, and Waybig again, since I really did enjoy the original series. Heck, I would have been even happier if Ben used Stinkfly, my favorite alien from the original series. Plus, it turns out Ben has 1,000,903 aliens in his Omnitrix, which is more than the 10,000 I thought he has.moreless

    • This is the first time in the Ben 10 series that we saw one of Ben's aliens home planet. In this episode we saw Galvan Prime, the home to Azmuth and Grey Matter.

    • In this episode it is learned that Azmuth can unlock the Master Control of the Omnitrix just by saying to the Omnitrix, "Master Control On," without putting in the secret code that Ben had once activated in "Back With a Vengeance."

    • It's possible Gwen forced Kevin into going because in "Unearthed," she was the only one doing the work. Now, she's unwilling to have it happen again.
