Warning. This Journal contains random scattered spoilers
I'm not sure what to make of the new series yet. I can't pass too much judgement when we only get such a small window of spoilers. Or, in this case a "sneak peek".
So, I'll just explain what I liked, and what I didn't thus far.
For those who LOVED the original series will adore the new show. It has an O.S feel and flair to it, and you will not be disappointed in that sense. It's exactly what the writers/creators wanted, and they surely have achieved it in my opinion. Tara Strong is back voicing Young Ben, and also the "Toilet Emporium" alien.
I wasn't ready for Kevin and Gwen leaving the show. It was apparent tonight when I kept yelling at the screen: "Wait!! I didn't get to say goodbye! You can't leave yet! WAIT!! WAIT!!" It just all came too soon. They weren't even in the episode that long for it to mean anything. It was, "lets kick some butt so we can get out of here". And that's how it went. I do like the fact that they are running off together, and secretly marrying each other......
....Okay seriously! We all know they are NOT learning anything. Ben just wasn't invited to the festivities because they knew he'd muck it up some how...
Okay, fine... Ruin it for me... I mean, can you just let me dream anyway? Just... Let a girl dream for goodness sake?! LOL!!
*sigh* Let's move on before I break down into a "crazy, angry, Kevin Levin fangirl mode".
I liked that Kevin and Ben tried, but miserably failed, to hug each other goodbye. A noogie from Kevin seemed more appropriate.
Khyber- he seems like a pretty awesome villain. His dog minions are killer amazing.
Rook- Yeah... He is wicked! I think my love for him will only grow as time goes by. I really hope he doesn't boost Ben's ego too much for calling him "sir" all the time... I hope it's like Kevin's "Tennyson" name that will slowly be snubbed out as they get to know each other better.
Spider Monkey: Honey... Wolverine called, and he wanted me to tell you that he needed his hair-do back... So, you may just want to give him a jingle before he slices you to pieces... Okie dokie? (I've got something cooking for this. Trust me. )
Voices- Cannonbolt, and FourArms.... Not sure if I like it or not. It's definitely different, and not what I'm used to.
Blox- he's.... Well... He's... Legolishous? I don't know if I like him yet.
Theme song- It's not the best... They could have put together something way more creative in my opinion.
Grandpa Max's eyes.... Don't get me started... Okay.. Fine... Did he lose them in battle off screen- and then we missed it at some point????
The art: *sigh* Once again, I have to see more than one episode, but it still irritates me a bit.
Chicken or "Liam" I believe his name is. Yeah... I like him. He's hilariously funny, and I love that!
The underground Plumbers base: It's freakin amazing! I wish my bathroom had that!
Zombozo- What's up with your flies, man. Soap, and a bit of water goes a long way. Just sayin'. (He is just as creepy though...)
All in all, I'm still at square one. I'm going to miss Kevin and Gwen. Rook just can't replace them. No matter how cool I think he is. I just don't feel I've gotten my fill of those two before they headed out. 2 minutes or less is just not enough for me. I wanted a full episode before they went and lived their lives away from Ben....
It stinks, and Derrick had mentioned a while ago that Kevin and Gwen would be in like every 10 episodes or so. Which isn't much when you break it all down.
So, there you have it.
and I think I'm in need of some mucho cheering up, because it all happened so quickly...
Well... Theres always Fred and Daphne I suppose.... Lol!
i have to admit i adore the good bye seen and ayayya there running off to get married will at lest they did in my fic (gwevin best thing that mine) hee hee but sense there only 16/17 hear i dont think there going to do that but id rather think they are there attempt to hug was cute to but the noogie was more fitting
some good stuff some dumb stuff but over all it was ok and im not sure about it yet but im not going to say it was horrible yet but god kev gwen come back rook cant take your palce no matter if he is cool or not i will miss kev and gwen it was short but the good bye was at lest cute and at the lest even though the animation is not the same they act like the same kev gwen and ben i was afraid kev would act as freaky as he looks so hew: relief there
There are too many things in this series that reminds me of Teen Titans,(starting from the theme song) I'm very glad that the animations are smooth, the fighting scenes don't have any useless actions (fight with Zombozo was actually pretty awesome and well thought out) and the plot line is good so far as much as it is sad to see Gwen and Kevin go. but wow, the original Omnitrix aliens has too many accessories and add on's now. (the designer obviously loves adding spikes!) Also I understand Ben is not use to the 'doing the job alone' but Man, they made it look like it's his FIRST TIME doing the job! So glad you made an open discussion about this!
Jerry McGuire reference for Rook: 'You had me at hello.' I've been in love with this this dude since I saw the first sneak peaks of this. He's the only character with enough detail in the eyes to make him striking and beautiful. It's as if Wyatt decided "Okay let's put all our effort into making Rook look really amazing an just let the rest of the art for this show go down the toilet." He outshined Ben by so far in the preview, the show might as well be called Rook at this point.
Heads up, ! is working on a Spidermonkey/Wolverine confrontation regarding the glaring and honestly disturbing similarities. I helped her with the dialogue. Believe me, it's hilarious! But, I think she's taking a break so I don't know if she'll get hers out before you do.
The underground Plumber's base was so cool I spasmed! Then, I yelled. "So THAT'S where all the art is going in this show! Forget the characters! Let's make the sets and backgrounds epic!"
I wasn't ready for Gwen and Kevin to leave, but having them just take off like that... anyone feel like they've been kicked in the gut?
Anyway, I promised to keep an open mind and I am. I have been mostly disappointed thus far, however.
Oh me too! Rook is simply amazing through and through!
I think he out shined Ben because, well, it looks as though they regressed his character to be more like it was in the original series. The whole time I was thinking.. Wait.. Why does he look so freakin' confused?! He's done this hero stuff plenty of times before, why doesn't he have a clue????
So, this is why Rook is way more heroic at this point.
LOL! Oh cool, I can't wait to see lady's version! So excited!! I have complete confidence that ours will be different in most ways. But I'm sure similarities will be there due to the fact that Wolverine will be involved, and that's totally okay.
I felt Kevin and Gwen weren't given the screen time needed to say goodbye the right way... It's as if the writers want us to forget that they existed, and helped Ben out many times over. They could've done a better job formatting that scene a bit more productively.
Not saying I didn't like the goodbye... I just wanted a little bit more added to it, to make it seem realistic.
They've made Ben and incompetent retard! Is this how we're supposed to get over the loss of Gwevin? Do they want us to completely lose all remnants of respect for the title character in this show? Or is this show so totally geared toward oblivious twelve-year-olds now that they don't care what anyone older thinks?
The more I see of Omniverse, the less appreciation I feel as a fan. I realize I'm too old to be watching cartoons anyway, but this is seriously even insulting intelligent children children at this point.
I have a twelve-year-old niece that finds this totally ridiculous!
I'm not a girl. 1. You are already a fan girl. 2.The underground base, yes mam! 3. Gwen and Kevin will show up again. Don't worry. 4. Note: If you have not seen The New Scooby Doo season, you will not get this joke: HAHAHAHAHAHA! Bayler Hottner, what a stupid name! And the minute I saw him, I was all "He's the Cry Baby Clown. Perfect for a new villian." And don't get me started on the Russian Witch, I mean, a house with chicken legs. At the end, I was thinking "No wonder he hid eggs in that house." 5. The Parrot will somehow get all the pieces, and realese one last Mega-Villian. OOOOHH.....I'm out of breath
Grandpa Max's eyes look weird. I hated the theme song when I first heard it. NOW I LOVE IT AND CANT STOP LISTENING TO IT! Bloxx was bad ass. CATAPULT BLOXX. Spidermonkey looks better than before. Feedback was cool. Four Arms voice was weird. Lodestar can move his mouth! And last but not least WHY DID KEVIN AND GWEN LEAVE SO SOON! (I am a Gwevin guy! There is nothing gay about it!)
