Definetly Season 6: Reconstruction. WHile i enjoy the random jokes of BGC I much prefer the story driven, darker feel of Reconstruction. It had a plot with jokes. BGC was more of a bunch of jokes with an occasional story hidden in there. My 2nd fav is season 8: Revelation but Season 10 so far into 6 episodes is looking to be up there in my top 3.
seasons 1 and 2 were about occasional fighting and trading and surrendering from random mishaps. Season 3 had more story with going back in time and fighting omalley so i will give that one credit. season 4 was mostly about meeting the alien, fulfilling a silly prophesy that ends up being important in season 5, simmons switching sides, and tucker becoming pregnant. Season 5 had more of a story with discovering the cave and stuff. I love the BGC its just i prefer season 6 and onwards due to the story being more important and clear.
Got to go with season 8 so far. I was blown away by the new CGI animations. It has amazing action scenes and still keep the old BGC feel to it. A prime example of this is when Simmons jumps off Blue base on to the warthog and he is getting flung all over the place while holding on to the turret, then Meta black flips off the man cannon and smashes the hog. It was amazing.
Reconstruction, no question. Revelation is probably the most overrated season I've seen so far. Besides the kickass CGI and the ending, for the most part there isn't anything really special to consider. This is also where RT went into the phase where they took the whole "bunch of guys just standing there and talking" thing way too seriously.
Aside from the CGI, the speeches made by Sarge and Caboose, and some jokes here and there, literally nothing happened for the most part except for only the beginning, the climax, and the ending. It's easily my second least favorite season (behind Season 9).
I'm kinda stuck between Seasons 5, 8, 9, 10. Season 5 is one of my favs because I find it's the funniest and it has my favorite line in it (Church - "There is no 11 YOU FUCKING WHORE!!!"). But I also like 8, 9, and 10 because of the over-the-top action sequences and amazing animation.
Reconstruction, for sure. While I had dabbled with Red vs. Blue in 2007 with the first two seasons, the darker tone of Reconstruction and the occasional bouts of humor made me go and revisit the last three seasons and the miniseries so I could understand the series better. The ending was excellent, as well. When people theorized that Tex and Church were AI, I scoffed and refused to believe that, like many others. But when the big reveal came, I was gobsmacked, to say the least. It stands as (with the ending to Season 8 and the Tex fight sequence in S10Ep10, and the S2 finale) one of my favorite moments in RvB history.
Totally agree. I'd say Reconstruction is my favourite as well. It had some good old fashion comedy, it introduced us to the Meta and properly to project freelancer, it had several really good twists, good pacing and in general a good storyline. As well as some nice action and a good balance between all these elements.
The funniest season for me was probably season 2 though, definitely one of the blood gulch chronicles seasons.
I'd also like to add that for me the "worst" season was season 9. It was okay, but I didn't think it was as funny, the plot seemed a bit slow or at least not heading in a clear direction and it focused in my opinion too much on the action.
This is really hard, because there isn't a season that a dislike at all. However, if I am going to go with one that just blew me away, it would be Reconstruction. It was the defining season. Reconstruction is what made a large amount of people deeply invested in the series (including me), and it showed that the storyline in Red vs Blue is actually more important than one would have thought. People started sticking around for the comedy and the story. Heck, now some people are more into the story, and the comedy is just the cherry on top.
The season had things going on in every episode, as I didn't feel that there were any episodes that were just "filler". The episodes were engaging + informative, and still with great jokes throughout the whole thing. The jokes seemed 10 times more funny because they provided such a contrast to the new characters and more 'serious' vibe surrounding the whole thing (a reason why Wash's comedic lines are so simple yet so funny, without being too obvious).
It introduced a character that was not generally comedic to move the plot line. More important lines came up, especially from Delta + Wash, and they actually knew what they were talking about. Many things started to fall into place that have been around somewhat randomly for five years. Project Freelancer was mentioned earlier, but never elaborated on. Now all of a sudden it seems that without PF, no one would even be here.
Let's not forget the big reveal of Church being the Alpha. Probably the single greatest moment in all of RvB. I mean, go to YouTube and just browse through the comments. Everyone's mind was blown, + it made perfect sense on top of it! It was perfectly executed.
The finale also probably gives everyone chills. Learning that this Director that we keep hearing about is actually what Church is based on was amazing. The music and execution was amazing here as well, and it was a truly captivating way to end a season.
Changing a show drastically is always a tricky move because you don't want to mess up anything that you had in place before, but you want a refreshing season to be the building blocks for later, even more amazing seasons. RT stuck to their guns with keeping everyone's favorite reds and blues, but adding so much more to the plot with just 1 sentence.
I couldn't have said it better myself, I'd say that's a great review. Also by reading the project Freelancer part it just occured to me that them asking "Why are we here?" in the middle of the box canyon with no way in or out or no strategic value, has been answered by the whole thing, hadn't noticed that. It's crazy to me that's where it all started, a bunch of guys sitting around a TV and wondering why their computerised little coloured guys were there.
