Getting back into Red vs Blue

I’ve loved the “popular web series Red vs Blue” for many years, but I’ll admit it sort of got pushed to the background over the last year or so. This past week the teaser trailer for Season 10 (which begins next month) made me realize a lot has happened that I missed. The last complete season that I watched was season 7, so there are two entire seasons that I missed.

Over the last few days I watched all of season 8 and I have to say it was quite enjoyable. It was as funny as ever but they also added a lot more action to the plot which makes it enjoyable to watch and there’s a sense of mystery in the story that compels you to keep watching episode after episode to figure out what’s going on.

I’m 6 episodes into Season 9 right now and so far it’s even better than 8. There’s a lot more action (which are fully animated and look awesome), it looks great in HD and so far there are plenty of references to the earlier seasons of RvB which make for great laughs.

For $10 every 6 months you can become a sponsor, and it’s well worth it. Sponsors get access to new episodes early, there are exclusive videos for sponsors, and sponsors can download episodes of their favorite shows (Rooster Teeth has several web series in addition to Red vs Blue). I highly recommend becoming a sponsor and helping RT continue to make great web content.

Just checking in

Sorry this blog has been slow lately. I arrived at my first duty station last Thursday (Mountain Home AFB, Idaho…middle of nowhere lol) and have been inprocessing and settling in.

I beat Mass Effect 3 last weekend. It was pretty good, the ending didn’t bother me that much. It was sad, but I think it ended well enough.

I’ve been playing a bit of Civilization V and Modern Warfare 3, but I’ve also started to get back into Halo. I’m going to try to beat Halo CE¬†Anniversary¬†Edition this weekend, so we’ll see how that goes. I’ve also been enjoying Sketch with Friends and Draw Something on my Kindle Fire, but I think I’m going to need to pick up a stylus to draw better.

I finished season one of Breaking Bad and am on episode 2 of season 2 and I’ve been enjoying that, it’s a really great show. I’ve also been catching up on Red vs Blue, starting with season 8, in preparation for season 10 once that starts up. Can’t wait for that, especially since Elijah Wood will be voicing a character in the series now.

So again, sorry for the sparse updates. I hope to blog more regularly sooner or later, that is if I have any free time, I’m sensing I’ll have very little with this job.

Until next time, thanks for stopping by.
