Season One Volume 2 starts out with Grampa Max. As we all know it was his disappearance that led to Ben using the Omnitrix again and starting them on their adventure. So, where is Max and what has he been up to? Well, we soon find out. The second episode finds Ben getting a date with a girl named Julie. Yet, like all dates, it gets ruined when an alien shows up and starts wreaking havoc. The third finds Gwen and Ben getting reunited with their long-lost Gramma. Through her, Gwen finds out alot about where her magic-wielding powers come from. And, lastly, School Bullies Cash and JT make an appearance and steal some alien technolgy & it is left up to Ben to save the day. The only extra is "DNA of a Scene" a short featurette that recreates a scene with original script notes, storyboards & the finished product.
While I love Ben 10 Alien Force and recommend you get this if you've got the extra money, my gripes still ring on. It is beyond me why Cartoon Network & Warner Home Video would put so many episodes of a season onto DVD when we're in the midst of Season 2 now on TV. Besides, the episodes appear to be out of order on the DVD as they originally aired on TV. It's a real disappoinment to me and other Ben 10 Alien Force fans, I'm sure, as well. If it were any other series, I don't know if I'd recommend you buy the episodes. However, considering that it is Ben 10 Alien Force and the show keeps you engrossed throughout, I have to recommend it.
Season 1 Volume 3 won't be out for a couple of months. Look back here later on for another review from me. Let's hope that Cartoon Network and Warner Home Video wise up and give us the whole season on DVD at some point. This is ridiculous.
