  • Ben and Crew get attack by Highway-Gang. Their RV gets stolen - battles follows and the kids learn to appreciate their old but reliable vehicle.

    Worst episode so far. I know that when watching a kids cartoon show suspension of disbelieve is sadly a requirement, but this episode takes ist to a whole new level. (I know im just venting but i still think my points are valid). Spoilers ahead ->

    First of the Highway-Gang: Those are probably the first real villains in the whole show, trying to outright murder anything on the road beside themselves (thats actually a good thing - makes it more thrilling), but no-one seems to care about that.

    Then, when they steal the Rustbucket, they have no problems "upgrading" it. One wonders how some hillbillys, who apparently haven´t even heard of toohtbrushes can handle the advanced plummer-tech.

    During the carchase, Gwen has the brilliant idea to throw the awards from the owner of the RV their currently using, on one of the toothbrush-challenged. The next car she disables with her magic - why not use magic immediatly instead of destroying the hardearned property of others? Thats just plain mean and/or stupid.

    Meanwhile their uncle has nothing better to do than to complain that the RV has no weapons onboard to fight back - what does he expect? That some random RV is a rolling battle-station?

    What annoyed me the most were the reactions of the highway-gang after they encounter bens upgrade-form. they weren´t shocked at all, but fought back as if it would happend to them every day.

    And not to forget the lasers, always with the lasers! How come everyone has laserweapons while the world is obviously not that advanced?

    I could go on, but i won´t.
    Maybe i´m expecting too much from a cartoon, but i do like shows where there are not so many inconsistencies.
  • good episode.

    While traveling through a desert, the Tennysons encounter a group of modern-day pirates called the Road Crew attempting to hijack the RV of Laurence Wainright. After stopping the Road Crew, the family makes a pit stop and Ben and Gwen start to complain about how the Rust Bucket doesn't work right and isn't nearly as luxurious as Laurence's RV. Shortly afterwards the Road Crew returns and steals the Rust Bucket. While Grandpa Max tries desperately to track down the Rust Bucket, the Road Crew give it a makeover for use in their plans. The Tennysons "borrow" Laurence's RV to catch up to the Road Crew just as they steal missiles from a train. Baron Highway, the leader of the Road Crew, plans on using the missiles to destroy the new highway, which in turn will increase traffic on the roads that the Road Crew patrol. Ultimately Ben stops Baron Highway's plan using his knowledge of the Rust Bucket's quirks.
  • Now this is what I call entertainment.

    This epsiodes is one of the best I have ever seen. It's exciting and keeps you entertained. It was so cleverly plotted you could understand it comepletely- the action of this episode explains it all. Modern day pirates steal the RV with cool improvements. Max is sorrowed for the RV's 'betrayal' due to attacking. The amazing van is nearly fried. Ben goes Upgrade and takes away the two other pirates. The episode ends. It was awesome.

    Cleverly plotted could have done really well.

    Anotyher great installment at that.

    A very special episode. Ben 10 at its best. In conclusion, this episode was awesome.
  • Ben and Gwen learn to appreciate the Rust Bucket more when it is stolen by Road Rage and a couple of his goons.

    This episode wasn't half bad. In fact, I actually enjoyed it. My favorite scenes are the scenes where Ben is constantly eating and the one where he accidentally gets trapped in the car wash after fighting Road Rage and the others. The look on his face when he saw he was safe from the hot wax was priceless! It was even funnier seeing his expression turn to dread when he got caught in the washers. Gwen's comment about his appearance looking better afterwards was hilarious too. The ending scene was good too. Ben and Gwen were eating the melted ice cream from the freezer and they used the last of it to stuff in Grandpa Max's face when he started singing again. I don't blame them; his singing is pretty aweful. This episode was also really good because it made us all appreciate the Rust Bucket more. We learn that even though there are much nicer and comfortable RVs out there, they will be useless in a fight or car chase.
  • The RV gets stolen!

    I missed the first 5 minutes of the episode, but it was a good episode. The RV gets stolen and they have to get it back so they meet up with some old lady (didn't see who she was or how they met her), but she has an RV and they catch up with the people who stole the RV and Ben tries to stop them and he goes into the RV while Grandpa, the old lady, and Gwen stop the 2 other people, and Gwen uses some of her spells which was cool. I liked it at the end when she stopped the girl with her spell. Withcraft and spells is cool. Great episode.
  • Kind of good for a filler episode.

    It's been a long time since we had a new episode of Ben 10. Even though this was a filler episode it was kind of good. He didn't get a new alien in this episode like some people thought, but had some of the aliens we all know and love. The aliens Ben used was (in this order) Ripjaws, Upchuck, Upgrade, and XLR8. What happens in this episode is modern day pirates called the Road Crew steal the Rustbucket. They planned to use the Rustbucket ans some missiles they stole to blow up the new highway, but Ben uses his alien heroes to stop them. Good for a filler episode, too bad the season will be over soon.
