  • vilgax is gone (but maybe not gone for good)

    9.1
    every time everyone thinks vilgax is dead, he comes back. first with max and the plumbers when they were much younger. then he comes back and he wants the omnitrix. then max destroyed him and he was frozen in space. then he gets stuck in the null void and somehow comes back. then after secret of the omnitrix he gets thrown away by ben's biggest alien, Way Big! and he still comes to earth still wanting the omnitrix. ok let me stop talking about vilgax and let me talk about the ben 10 series finale. everyone knows ben can transform into many different kind of aliens!moreless
  • Summer vacation is over and it's time for Ben to go to school...

    When I first saw that this episode marked the end of the summer vacation and Ben had to get to school again, I thought it would be the worst episode ever. on the contrary, it was actually very good. One of the best parts of this episode was that Vilgax returned for the final stand. While fighting Vilgax, the kids at Ben's school learns his secret about all the aliens. The bullies even get to watch him and his family fight Vilgax. I still can't believe Ben's house got destroyed. His dad didn't seem too mad about it though XDmoreless
  • Not a very good series finale

    6.5
    Okay, so summer's over and Ben has to go back to school. but he was not allowed to tell his secret to anyone. everyone keeps mocking him for some reason and these alien things and vilgax came to look for him.

    hmmm not a very good way to end this series. i mean theres ben 10: alien force which is a horrible show by the way. i dont know i just didnt like the way they killed vilgax. They killed vilgax right? I didnt concentrate much for this episode.

    *SPOILER*

    its really awkward telling the whole school that youre an alien. i mean it seriously reminds me of Danny Phantom. they were suppose to keep it a secret and let it out last minute. Not the best finale.moreless
  • Goodbye and Good Riddance.... Not only to Vilgax but to the show itself. (Except the Good Riddance Part) Goodbye, Ben 10... Welcome Ben 10: Alien Force~

    10
    The episode was great. A good series finale episode... not the best, but good. Vilgax was destroyed. I think he might come back. If he does come back, he'll be in Ben 10: Alien Force, which makes it strange. Vilgax vs. Highbreed? Superior breeds going against one another? Cool plot!

    Anyways, since this is the Series Finale episode, I'll talk about the show itself instead of just the episode. Ben 10 was awesome. It was a great show and I loved the theme to it. The characters were great and almost all the episode were great as well. I never expected it to have a sequel though... Ben 10: Alien Force. When I watch Ben 10 AF, it feels so much different than watching Ben 10. As if it is another show. Actually it is, but what I mean is that it feels as if Ben 10 and Ben 10 AF aren't in common at all. They are though with the aliens, and characters... but I guess I just miss Ben 10 itself. Overall, Ben 10 rocks!moreless
  • Great Episoide!!!

    8.1
    This episode was great! I loved it and think it made a great series finale! Everything seemed to come together at the end for Ben. But if you ask me the plot was a bit rushed. Everything seemed to be happening all at once and I barley had time to process what was happening. One thing would happen right after another. And it seemed like they beat Vilgax a bit too easily. Not to mention how through out the whole series Ben was so careful not to let his identity known to the public and then all of a sudden when JT and Cash see him go hero Ben can't even think of some feeble excuse? I think this would of done much better as a one hour special, then they could of had more time for everything to happen rather then squish it all in, in half an hour. That probably made for a more satisfying ending.moreless
