Hello, Ladies, Gentlemen and everything in between. Ruben Falcon here and ready to to pour down the popcorn, pop the sodas and got ready for another Ruben's Review.

Now, this is a reveiw for a show that's really hard to find. Unless you have a Hulu account, you're not gonna be able to see this show. It's called "Get Ace" and it's about an ordinary kid named Ace McDougal who is anything but an ordinary kid. During the first episode of the show, he ran into the wrong dentist office in his rush to not be late for his appointment. The result landed him in a mad scientist's office and he got fitted with these weird braces. The braces are equipped with 50 futuristic powers and functions, each usable by saying "function" and then saying any number between 1 and 50.

You got number 42; the rocket t
hrusters that come out of his braces, 49; a translator ray that makes any animal speak English upon being zapped, number 3; a spring loaded platform, number 11; the safety net, and dozens more things like pole volting sticks, sleeping gas, shrink/growth rays and even a giant floating hand that Ace and telepathically control.

But the main function of the braces is a Holographic Guidance User Operative; or H.U.G.O. for short. Which is a tiny holographic man that only Ace could see through his glasses that control all of the functions in his braces. He also plays as a voice of reason and straight man to Ace's wild teenage antics.

The badguys in this show are Hilda Krinkle; an evil spy who is near retirement and her son Ned; a bumbling buffoon who is not only a master-ish of 
disguise but, as it turns out, he was the one that was suppose to get the braces. The 2 come up with various plans to rip the braces off of the boy's mouth. All of them work about as well as making a boat out of rocks that're held together with llama spit.

All of things I stated above are nice things about the show. But my opinion of the show and my overall recommendation of it is...conflicted a bit.

One problem I have with this show can be summed up in 2 words: Toilet Humor. A whoooole lot of poop and vomit is on this show. It's true that a lot of my favorite shows, like Total Drama and 6teen have both of those. But that doesn't exactly work in this show's favor. Too many scenes of this show do you see the badguys land in a pile of elephant poop or see everyone throw up on screen, rather than having their head be inside a trashcan or something. So, if you have a weak stomach, watch this show with a bucket close by.

Another thing I don't like is a lot of the weird characters in this thing. First off: Ace's love interest, Tinea; who is your basic snobby blonde "I'm totally hot, important and I'll be a star and people need to pay attention to me!" girl. I'm not kidding when I say that this girl come equipped with the cliched "fake friends" that all snobby girls have and that the 2 girls themselves are more interesting than her. :roll:  Then you have this girl, space, friend of Ace named Claudia, who is basically the boy in the plastic bubble, if the bubble was mobile and the boy was a girl who had a crush on Ace that he's totally oblivious about because he's gawking over Tinea. The rock star math teacher, the deranged librarian, the classic school bully. Even Ace's family members are a bunch of weirdos; his dad is a failing comedian, his mom is fitness nut, his dog is disobedience and drools and worse of all, his sister thinks that Ace is some kind of alien and will go out of her way to prove. Sort of in a mix between Mandy from the Grim Adventures and Mr. Crocker from the Fairly Odd Parents.

So, a lot of the character's aren't that exciting. Including Ace, before that Bracefaced dude gets a bit over confident. :unimpressed: Aside from having a very shrilling voice, Ace is another member of the "I never learn from my mistakes" club. He never thinks before he acts and he'll shout random numbers, only to find out that he asked for the wrong thing. Yet, at the same time, I see a bit of myself in Ace. If I had that multi-gadget power, I'd probably be a lot like Ace: picking the wrong thing most of the time. However, my reason is that I don't think straight under pressure. :B But that's neither here, there or underwear.

Keep in mind, there are characters that I do like. H.U.G.O., for instance. He seems like a smart, cultured man. Unlike Ace, I think me and the guy would be close friends because we have a lot in common, rather than because we're opposites. Another character I like is a retired super spy by the name of Jack Union who seems to constantly run into Ace. And just like Ace, he has super spy braces. But the main difference is that Jack's braces have pop out gadgets while Ace's has gadgets that work like solid holograms.

I also like Hilda and her son, Ned. I always liked chemistry between badguys and their henchmen. And having it be the badguys as family hasn't been so entertaining since Dr. Claw on the new Inspector Gadget show. :giggle: It's especially funny to see Ned blubber like a baby. Schadenfreude, people. Look it up. I also love how Hilda treats Ned like the child he is. There are even some sweet moments between them. The kind that makes you go "AAAAAWWWW!~". Or at the very least chuckle.

The stories are pretty decent in this show. However, there are sometimes holes in the plot and a few things that just don't make sense at all. From little things like "Why did that rope pull Ace up when he cut the sandbag down?" to big things like "How did Ace zapping the ground with a laser instantly create a volcano?" to bigger things like "How the hell does no one in this city notice Ace using the braces?" Seriously, when it comes to secret spy stuff, Ace isn't too good with the whole secret part. :roll: And with Ace doing things like slimming people out of nowhere, creating fogs and shooting lasers out of his teeth, you'd think people would notice by now. So, yeah, be on the look out for a lot of "Why the f*ck" moments when watching this.

I know, these sound all like pity complaints, but put enough pitys together and you get a big complaint. And these are a few things I don't like about the show, but at the same time, I always find myself going back to watch more and more. Mainly because you kinda need to go through the thick layer of stupid characters, weird plot holes and plot points and the barrier that is made up of Ace's annoying voice to find a pretty good show.

Or maybe I'm just sucker for spy gadgets and I'm eager to see what the next function in Ace's braces is gonna be. Which is also a plus, I guess?

If you have a Hulu account, or at least access to one, I would recommend you just watch the first episode to try it out. But don't expect to come out wanting more, is what I guess I'm saying. :B If I were a teacher in a school for animated programs, this show would probably get nowhere about a C. Which isn't a good grade, yes, but at least it's a decent grade. Because this is a decent show. It's nothing to really write home about (ignoring the fact that I just wrote a review for it) but it's at least entertaining. I don't think everyone will come out liking it, but I myself enjoy it and I've been watching it all weekend. :aww:

And with all of that said, this is Ruben Falcon, signing off saying "You know, if someone told me that there's a show about a kid with super powered braces, I'd expect it to be called 'Brace Yourself'. :B"
