EPISODE REVIEW: Generator Rex: “The Hunter” (Season 1, Episode 13)

It is totally completely unfair of me to compare this show to Ben 10, and yet it’s increasingly hard not to do so. Not only was the Ben 10 franchise created by the same people who created this show, but tonight’s episode covers pretty much the same territory as the “Will Harangue” arc in Ben 10: Ultimate Alien.

EPISODE REVIEW: Generator Rex: “Rabble” (Season 1, Episode 12)

You ever hit that stage where something you used to really like is starting to become tiresome, but you stick with it not out of loyalty or tradition or even hope, but simply because you don’t really think you have any alternative? I remember that when I saw the original Galactica for the first time, and was already done with Star Wars. I remember that with Babylon 5, when Trek had long since ceased to interest me.

EPISODE REVIEWS: Generator Rex: “Dark Passage” (Season 1, Episode 9)

People all over the world are getting “Presents” from someone that turn them into Evos briefly. Providence quickly realizes this is the work of a missing scientist name “Rylander” (Voiced by Brent Spiner) who’s suspected of being involved in the original Nanite event.

Holiday finds some rare plant residue in the presents, and tracks it to a region in South America, so Rex, Six, and her head on down. White Night informs Captain Kalen - the guy who was going to nuke Manhattan a few episodes back - to clean up the mess if Six’s team can’t contain it. Nukes ahoy!

EPISODE REVIEWS: Generator Rex: “Breach” (Season 1, Episode 8)

Another pretty solid episode.

Rex awakes in a creepy abandoned town, Greenville, Ohio, which disappeared several years before. He’s in a school with lots of deformed toys, and the town itself is no better, with detritus stacked everywhere, and levitating in the mist.

Meanwhile, Dr. Holiday has Breach in custody, strapped down, and is firing probes into her to try to figure out where Rex is. Whenever one gets close, it disappears, and ends up somewhere on earth. One gets through to Rex, but is promptly ejected again, without them being able to figure out where it is.

EPISODE REVIEW: Generator Rex: “Frostbite” (Season 1, Episode 6)

I think this is my new favorite cartoon. There’s just a lot to like here. The voice acting is good, the music is generally above average, Six is cool, and there’s just a really neat visual style that has a signature different from any other Warners show on the air.

We start out with the normal teaser dustup with an evo, but *not* our normal voiceover from Rex explaining the premise of the show. Doc Holiday warns Rex that he’s overloaded with Nanites, and can’t take any more on, but he does it anyway, and basically metal bits start growing out of him as he collapses in pain.

EPISODE REVIEW: Generator Rex: “Lockdown” (Episode 4)

Our Friday of unimpressive fare continues - or so I thought it did - with a paint-by-the-numbers episode of Generator Rex that started off all-too-simple, but ended up surprising me. I really, really needed surprising tonight, so I’m pretty grateful. They ended up going in directions I hadn’t foreseen, and it ratchets up the complexity of the series quite a bit.
