Ben 10 went back to the beginning a year ago, when the current series bowed overseas. It finally arrived on American screens back in April, but trying to compress what worked so well in a full-length half-hour format for nearly 10 years and 4 series overall doesn't work. The feeling I get is that some of the plots to the current series would work better under the original format.
Translated, if it ain't broken, you don't fix it. But the morons at CN did, anyway.
Ben Tennyson (Tara Strong) is back to being 10 years old, as is cousin Gwen. We had watched them grow up and mature, to the point where devoted fans probably were hoping Gwen, who'd begun a relationship with enemy-turned-ally Kevin Levin during the Alien Force series, would continue on that path, and Ben would eventually find his own true love.
So why a reboot? With this, I don't know.
In "Need For Speed", a group of baddies decide to race to Yellowstone National Park, searching for a hidden treasure. Ben has designs on that treasure, too......
I'd rather watch the original series, thanks.
