This. The original kid Ben was insufferable to me, I literally couldn't sit through one episode (maybe because I was a teenager already back then and I was sick of the bratty kid trope).
Then after the timeskip I could watch it when it was on but never really got into it. Everything after it is not on my radar.
Then this last reboot happened and fuck me, I actually like it now. Gwen doesn't play the bitch-older-sister role anymore, and Ben is tolerable. I don't understand why it gets so much hate here.
