Re: Cartoon Network Returning Genre Shows Sat AM

Ben 10: Omniverse actually aired its first two episodes last week, so people coming in this week will be a bit behind. Although I found the opening 2-parter to be a little... lacking. It seemed to set things up without payoff -- like opening with a flashback to preadolescent Ben before cutting forward to present-day Ben, and then never returning to the 11-year-old version or explaining what purpose the flashback served. And as yet there's no explanation for why it's called Omniverse. I'd gotten the impression that it would involve alternate timelines, or at least interaction between Ben at the two different ages, but as yet there's been nothing about that.
