I decided to sample a few episodes from the latest seasons (9 and 10), and I'm disappointed to say the least. It's not even trying to be funny anymore. I'm not saying that as an insult: it's literally not supposed to be funny. There are no attempts at humor. The characters I remember are gone, besides Tex and Wyoming, but no mentions are made to Sarge or Simmons or Griff, or Church or hell even Donut. There are no jokes. Apparently it's supposed to be really serious. But who the hell watches Red vs Blue for a serious plot? Who plays Halo for a serious plot, for that matter? One of the biggest draws of this web series was the spoofing of the multiplayer itself: the opening line of the first episode of the first season is, "Why are we here?"
The effects are snazzier and the production value has obviously gone up, but I don't give a shit about that. I want talking bombs and alien babies, damn it!
Has anyone been following this show long enough to clue me in to the moment the show's tone changed?
