Have you ever seen it? It seems pretty good for a kid's cartoon.
No, I haven't actually seen it. Would you recomand it? If, then why?
Also, I think the more appropriated board is /1ntr/ not this one since this one is for pony and pol.
I saw it when I was a child. It was one of my favorite shows at the time. Very good cartoon.
The sequel series, Ben 10 Alien Force, was decent too, although it didn't have the same feel to it that Been 10 did. Maybe that's just because I was growing up.
Been 10 Ultimate Alien was garbage though, imo.But really, this thread has nothing to do with ponies or politics, and would have been better off on /sp/. The off-topic posts are why people keep giving you shit, m8...
Take it to /sp/ or the garbage can.
You're right, this thread should be moved to /1ntr/.
I would definitely recommend classic Ben 10. The sequel series Ultimate Alien Force and Omniverse, they're mixed bags and while I like both for different reasons they go in some wildly different directions. But Ben 10 classic is a 10/10 show, pun not intended.
Anyway, It's an entertaining and creative sci-fi series about a kid travelling with his cousin and grandpa around America in an RV during Summer Vacation, except Ben finds an alien watch called the Omnitrix that lets him turn into any of ten (At first, he gets more over time) 'Superpowered' aliens, though the 'Superpowers' are normal for that species. I like what the original series did there, it's something its sequels forgot when it introduced usual capeshit stuff like superpower-stealing machines and superpower-negating devices and a villain who somehow gets powerwanked and nerfed at the same time. The sequel shows are mixed bags.
I don't want to spoil the great shit the series comes up with, but it comes up with some great shit.
Each of the classic Ben 10 aliens are well-thought out, interesting, and balanced. No shark-jumping "This guy is an Omnipotent universe-buster and these guys are lolsorandom jokes" bullshit here. And even though Ben can choose any unlocked alien and turn into it, The Omnitrix will often give him the wrong alien, forcing him to think on his feet. Plus, sometimes weird shit will happen to the watch or Ben, screwing with what he ends up getting.
My personal favourites out of all his aliens (Even counting sequel-show stuff) are the classic aliens Upgrade and Grey Matter.
Upgrade is a blob that upgrades and controls technology it touches and Grey Matter is a shoe-sized smart guy.
If I could recommend just one episode from this show... Season 1, Episode 7. The episode that introduces Kevin.
Another really underrated thing about the show? Grandpa Max. Not as great as Uncle Iroh from Avatar, but he's up there.
Just started watching it again per your recommendation, thanks for the nostalgia dripping good time. Probably my favorite show when I was a kid.
Holy fuck, show is deep.
"Ben, I think that Zombozo robs people of more than just their possessions. I think he steals peoples' happiness until there's nothing left."
I miss when they used to make kids shows of a quality like this, every episode it genuinely feels like the characters are growing, the villains are ridiculous but not that out of place for this whack-ass universe, damn...
Anybody else remember when cartoon network put out more than social justice garbage? Those were the days, huh...
To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Ben 10. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Ben's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Ben 10 truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Ben's existential catchphrase "Hrrrngh I want to plow my hot sister," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Man of Action Studios' genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them.
And yes, by the way, i DO have a Ben 10 tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid
JASON NEEDS MORE DOPAMINE!
This one could've used a bit more customization, but it still got a nostril exhale out of me.
It's kind of funny but more customization would make it funnier. Say it's some super-deep shit about life and philosophy because the "Universe's greatest weapon" was intended to be... How do I spoiler tag, again? Anyway, it was intended to be both a "Noah's Ark Device" full of dead-species DNA and something that would let any creature "Walk a mile in another creature's shoes". And the fact that everyone who looks at it and thinks "Weapon" is a commentary on the barbarity of life, to the point where the device's upgraded replacement ends up getting a Super Saiyan button with horrifying implications. I can't believe the show never thought to use ultimate you-know-what. No, not the omnipotent guy, the obvious choice.>>11249
I haven't seen the Zombozo episode in years! Ah, memories. I love the "Scare your fears away" moral the episode goes with, and it brilliantly foreshadows something that happens later in the series, something that utterly blew my mind as a kid.
Unironically, this is what people have said to you to no avail. You can't fault them for persisting, any more than they can fault you. I mean, Ben 10? Who the fuck cares? Just saying.
Not Nigel here, but could you please stop bashing it just because it's a nigel thread? It's already on /sp/ where it belongs, at this point you should just stop giving a shit and move on to something else.
Could there be a way to remove flags when threads are moved to /sp/?
There could, but it would be exceedingly complicated. The better option would be for OP to post threads in the appropriate board in the first place
They've been at this "REEEE IT'S NIGEL HE'S RAGING" crap for years. If they had anything better to do with their lives, they'd be doing it. And at least time they spend REEEEEEEEEing on this board is time spent on this board. At this point, I try to ignore them.
look at what you just wrote. now click the return button. look at the thread below your thread.
this will be your future, Jason.
Thought I was forgetting something
Pretty low quality. Vrill is better than you Nigel.
Hey, what do you think of this show so far?>>11238
I know this is a joke video but
1. I didn't know they made an actual Ben 10 game in the UAF era
2. Why the fuck are there only four aliens to choose from? At this point he's got like thirty aliens
>>11420>Hey, what do you think of this show so far?
I really like the one where Ben 10 used his radical ninja magic to btfo all the pokemon I don't like and become Ben 11.
I was only nine years old. I loved Ben 10 so much, I had all the merchandise and episodes on DVD. I'd pray to Ben every night before I went to bed, thanking for the life I've been given. "Ben 10 is love", I would say, "Ben 10 is life". My dad hears me and calls me a plumber. I knew he was just jealous for my devotion of Ben. I called him a dork. He slaps me and sends me to go to sleep. I'm crying now and my face hurts. I lay in bed and it's really cold. A warmth is moving towards me. I feel something touch me. It's Ben. I'm so happy. He whispers in my ear, "It's Hero time." He turns into Four Arms and grabs me with his powerful alien hands, and puts me on my hands and knees. I spread my ass-cheeks for Ben. He penetrates my butthole. It hurts so much, but I do it for Ben. I can feel my butt tearing as my eyes start to water. I push against his force. I want to please Ben. He roars a mighty alien roar, as he fills my butt with his love. My dad walks in. Ben looks him straight in the eye, and says, "Check it out...I'm totally hot! Heh heh heh". Ben leaves through my window. Ben 10 is love. Ben 10 is life.
still an improvement over Alien Force transformations.
