Ben 10 – The Complete Season Three (Warner Animation DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: C-     Episodes: C



I feel mixed about a TV show that is like something that we have seen before and yet tries to be other things and something different.  When it is sold as original to adults, it is a joke, but a show like Ben 10 (about a young boy who gets empowered by extra-terrestrial technology and becomes a hero) is aimed at younger children and does not seem as bad.  It is not that interesting, but we’ve seen worse.


We looked at the show through the DVD release of its First Season, as this link will show:





My fellow critic was only so impressed and with the show reaching it Third Season, thought I should see what I thought and if the show had grown any.  It is consistent for what it is, has not improved much and is just a safe-enough action franchise that is more formulaic than I think the makers are willing to admit.  You get all 13 half-hours on two DVDs and are adequate entertainment at best.  All I could think of is how much better the original Johnny Quest was.


The performance remains the same on this set as the first, but I was less impressed with both than my fellow critic was with the first set.  Extras include promos, alien gallery, deleted scenes and previews for other Warner DVD animated releases.
