BEN 10: ULTIMATE ALIEN “The Eye of the Beholder” Review

BEN 10: ULTIMATE ALIEN "The Eye of the Beholder" Season 2 Episode 2 – The second episode of this season’s Ben 10: Ultimate Alien, has Baz-El getting into a load of trouble when he goes a little too far in his planetary pocket plundering.

We get to see Julie right away with her beloved pet, Ship, who somehow hears Baz-El calling out in distress from another planet. The scene plays out like your classic Lassie episode and I suddenly find myself asking, how the heck does Julie understand everything Ship is saying? It’s not as if Ship is doing charades and she’s using simple deduction to figure it out. Ship is chirping and she can somehow figure out that he’s talking about Baz-El being in trouble and that he’s going out to save him. She figured out all that from his "ship-ship-ship." How is it that she understands in great detail what he’s ship-shipping about but the rest of the characters are totally clueless? Maybe I missed that tiny detail when Julie and Ship first met but a casual reminder of that information would be helpful since it seems everyone else takes it for granted. I suppose it could just be Julie’s intuitive nature and it if worked for Lassie, I guess it could work for Ship too. Their bond is obviously special since Ship learns his second word "Julie" in a really cute moment at the end of the episode. Read More...
