Or greatest? Also, probably of the most consistent quality of anything I've ever seen. If I would criticize it at all, it's the self-indulgence of the latest seasons' action set-pieces. I actually wound up seeing parts of Season 9 before I watched Season 8's, and Season 9's interminable "look, Tex is badass" training montages look even more pointless in comparison to the involving set-pieces from Season 8, which is apparently when they got the technology to do that kind of thing. (Even though it kinda makes you nostalgic for the days when the targeting reticle was continually visible, this increase in production value is obviously a very good thing.) Even so, I sorta hope it's not the fulfillment of its slow slide from comedy to action-comedy to actioner with quips. Even though they're actually rather good at it, and while the best stuff (Seasons 7 and 8) definitely came as a result of that transformation (it was nice to see our loveable morons do something heroic, let alone correctly, for a change), the prequel stuff is a lot more, I dunno, heartless? Too serious? Involving characters with little history and audience investment? Maybe after having finally caught up I'll care more about all these whiney Freelancers, even though their neuroses are not nearly as funny as the mains. Also, you'd think after 8 seasons, Tex would have become a likeable character, but you'd be wrong! Also also, Donut's really dead? Bogus. Also^3, it's an interesting exercise in long-form storytelling with a deep (if flexible) continuity. It's weird how they successfully mined the goofiness of Season 1 ("I'm a ghost!") as an Anatomy Lesson-style character revealation half a decade later. Anyway, I wanna go on record: Red vs. Blue--easily the best science fiction program of the 21st century. And even that's almost too backhanded a compliment... It's even funnier when you realize a comedy show based on making Halo characters say "fuck" is gives more of a shit about exploring the concept of artificial, or uploaded human, intelligence than Battlestar Galactica ever did.
