This week, Jared rants about how bad episode 8 of the Halo series was. Like wow; Paramount Plus really did not look at the lore. Literally, no one acted in character this entire episode. This episode went from bad, to worse, to kinda cool (the spartan fight), to worse again. At this point, is cancelation still an option if Season 2 is like this?
This week, Jared begrudgingly reviews Halo Episode 7: Inheritance aka, the Kwan episode. We all knew it would happen eventually. He discusses the highs, the many lows, the most badass action moments, and the interesting Halo references made in the episodes redeeming action moments.
Let’s be clear. I still don’t think the show is terrible. It just needs more Chief, action, and a threat from the Covenant. It so far has lacked in those three points. It’s also needs less Kwan (she is dragging the show down). If the show can accomplish these four recommendations, Season 2 can be greatly aided (I do believe they will take respectful criticism to heart). So stay civil and respectful in the discourse around this show.
This week, Jared reviews Halo The Series Episode 6: Solace. He outlines the basic plot, key moments, easter eggs, and predicts where he thinks the series is heading. He even provides a special segment to discuss one particular easter egg from the series (it involves a laser).
This series is building to some pretty awesome stories and we will be here to provide positivity in the discourse surrounding this show.
This video, Jared argues that #HaloTheSeries, the series maligned by fans, is in fact, really good, and closer to the lore than one would think. He brings up the action, visuals, the characterizations of Master Chief, Halsey, Captain Keyes, etc and how these in fact create a compelling story. Also, Jared addresses how past beloved series such as #FowardUntoDawn featured little action until the end and then featured more action.
We hope we have at least inspired you to give the show another chance, as it has the potential to make Halo more mainstream, thus expanding the franchise.
