This two-disc DVD set contains all ten episodes of the first story arch of Ben 10: Ominverse. Being a fan of Ben 10, I can honestly say that this is an excellent series, one that I prefer over the last series Ben 10: Ultimate Alien. If you love what made the original series and Alien Force so much fun, then I can honestly say that Omniverse is a series that you definitely have to check out. It's got plenty of action, great animation, cool classic and new characters, lots of humor... and not to mention a whole pantheon of new aliens!
Beware of Spoilers.

Alien Reveal & Alien Database
Overall, Ben 10: Omniverse is a very strong and fresh take on the franchise. And if the following story arches are as good as, or even better than, the first arch... I have a feeling we'll be getting quite a great series.
Definitely worth picking up.
And the price, at $14.99, is pretty decent for ten episodes of a very entertaining series.
