As much of the same cast has worked on the fan-favorite Transformers show Transformers: Animated (2007), including art director and big-time Transformers nut Derrick Wyatt, this cartoon contains a number of hidden references or "easter-eggs" to that series. For example in one of the episodes, Grimlock's sword and Lockdown's hook-hand appear in Khyber's trophy-room. One of the villain henchmen from the series pilot was meanwhile based on a character from Challenge of the GoBots (1984). See more »
Let me begin my review by honestly saying that I am a fan of the original Ben 10 through Ultimate Alien series, and I was extremely happy to find that Cartoon Network decided to continue the series with Omniverse. However, after watching about 15 episodes into the series (giving it a chance), I can honestly say that it is a piece of crap.
And I'm not even talking about the genius who made the mindless decision to completely change the style of cartoon artwork from anime style to the hard to stomach blocky jagged "lego style" art.
They did a horrible job of writing out Gwen and Kevin which I will have to admit, was one of my main reason for watching the Ben 10 series...and don't even get me started on Julie. Why is her eyes completely slanted more than ever? Racist much? Also, grandpa has dots for eyes...what happened? Did he accidentally stab his eyes out in between series? Ugh. I want to puke just thinking about how horribly botched the entire damn show is.
The new aliens from his Omnitrix are useless...really? Lego-Block man? What, did the producer spin a wheel on the donkey and ended up stepping on Legos?
I honestly cannot understand who in their right mind would ruin a perfectly good series with mental retardation techniques just to "capture" new audience.
Ben Tennyson has De-evolved into a whiny baby with major attitude. Has he been hit too many times in the head? It seems like it. Most of the time I fantasize about smashing his face in with a tennis racket to shut him up from his horrible "witty" puns that makes my ears bleed.
Why are all the main bad guys bumbling fools? Why is almost all the episodes "filler" episodes? Oh my god...I cannot find in the deepest part of the universe as to what possessed anyone to sabotage this whole franchise.
You bet your ovaries that I won't even let my unborn non existent children ever to lay their eyes upon this abomination series of Ben 10 Omniverse. Heck, just rename the damn thing to: Ben 10: Herpa-Derp as a more fitting title.
I'd watch a damn banana grow wings and fly than watch this piece of crud.
And yes, I begrudgingly created an account just to review this one show. That is how badly I think of this series.
