Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Though this irreverent animated series from Rooster Teeth Productions is inspired by the blockbuster Halo video game franchise, one doesn't need to be familiar with the game--or gaming in general--to appreciate Red vs. Blue's skewering of action tropes, military bravado, and science fiction in general. A prime example of the modern art form known as machinima (the use of video game graphics engines to create new animation), Red vs. Blue is also essentially a sitcom set in the eponymous Halo scenario, with two teams of soldiers in constant pursuit of each other's flag, yet completely unaware of the reason for the competition. Stuck in a repetitive and pointless scenario from which they appear to have no escape, the Red and Blue teams become embroiled in an absurdly elaborate game of one-upmanship that involves a Spanish-speaking robot who falls in love with a sentient, trigger-happy tank; a short-tempered talking bomb; frequent flashes backwards and forwards in time; an alien savior; and constant bouts of possession by various artificial intelligence. If this sounds like the densest chunk of science fiction ever presented, keep in mind that it's all delivered in rapid-fire bursts of snarky, slapstick humor over the course of 100 five-minute episodes; think a futuristic version of Stripes, not Dune.

Since Red vs. Blue was created for web broadcast using the Halo engine, image and quality tends to be somewhat low resolution, but picture-perfect visuals aren't what fans are expecting with this five-disc set. Rather, it's the chance to have the entire series run in one set, along with an impressive collection of extras. Chief among the latter are multiple audio commentaries from the cast and crew for each season (all have been featured on previous releases), including a new anniversary commentary recorded for this set. Two special productions--the Xbox Live miniseries Out of Mind and Recovery One--are also a highlight, as are a barrage of special videos, including the show's hilarious public service announcements, voice-over outtakes (many of which have been deliberately flubbed), and deleted scenes. Faux DVD menu content, including fake FBI warnings and nonsensical language options, is evidence of the appreciation for the show's fans that went into this set, as is a new sixth disc of rarities, including early dialogue recordings, award-show footage, and even a version of the series executed completely with Legos. It's hard to imagine a show that plays on paper like Red vs. Blue deserving such a deluxe presentation, but the sheer quality of the imaginations behind the program clearly warrant this impressive set. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

In the distant future, ten soldiers battle for control of the least desirable piece of real estate in the known universe a box canyon in the middle of nowhere. Red vs. Blue chronicles the misadventures of two hapless armies as they wage a war that few understand and no one wants to fight.

It all started with a simple question, 'You ever wonder why we re here?' But in a place called Blood Gulch, the answers aren t always what you expect. What began as a six-episode video project created by a group of avid HALO fans quickly took on a life of its own. Five seasons, 100 episodes and millions of downloads later, Red vs. Blue: The Blood Gulch Chronicles has become known as one of the funniest and most popular Internet video series of all time. This 6-disc DVD set includes all 100 episodes from the five seasons (remastered for Seasons 1-4), as well as hours of exclusive bonus material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better, not quite perfect July 22, 2010
Format:DVD
I love Red Vs. Blue. I love it to death. I already owned the original five seasons on DVD, but I was still thrilled when the Remastered version came out. It really is much better now that the pictures fill the screen, and they're sharper, too! Even better for someone with limited shelf space, this time they put all 6 DVDs (5 seasons and a bonus disc) into only two thin boxes, rather than the huge box the old complete set came in. So now I have space to buy the next several seasons when they come out.

There's only one problem I have, and its the same problem I had with the old set... except for Lopez's Spanish dialogue, and the 5th season, there are no captions/subtitles. My girlfriend is both hard of hearing and sensitive to loud noises, and with all the yelling and the radio/helmet speech effects, she has a hard time following what's happening. Makes it hard to watch it together... or at night with the volume on low after she goes to sleep.

I'd take off a half-star for this, if I could, but I can't so I won't.

Nevertheless, all said, I'm glad I bought it. (Now, on to the "Recollection" 3 DVD set!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Red vs Blue at its Finest October 25, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You can't go wrong here. Red vs Blue was one of the best Machinima's I ever watched. To think I used to watch them at 360p and then 480p. I remember watching the older, non - remastered versions where the cross-hair is still present and you actually are missing 1/2 the image (they had to crop out the arms/weapon of the camera man!). The remastered set is fantastic. The video looks great in widescreen, with drastically improved visuals compared to the original version we have all come to love. The textures now look crystal clear and the image takes up the entire screen rather than half. The audio has been improved as well, on top of some improved visual. Any Red vs Blue fan won't be disappointed. Any Halo fan won't be either. If you are a gamer you can't miss this show especially in its remastered form on DVD

5.0 out of 5 stars Great deal, and the best possible RvB experience September 12, 2010
By P. Orr
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love Red vs. Blue and have been watching it since the show started. This box set is really the show in its best form possible, a full frame version of the show with no crappy letterboxing. I owned the first four seasons on DVD but this is just so much better of an experience. I was not having the $45 dollar price tag at [...] because I owned the DVDs already, but at $30 on amazon I could not go wrong. A huge savings from Amazon (as usual) and the item arrived promptly and in perfect condition.

My only gripe is, like others have said, the packaging is a bit weak. The DVDs are in those spindles tighter than any other DVD I have had before, and I really fear I'm going to break them pulling them out sometimes.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING SERIES-AMAZING BOX SET October 13, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an amazing series, it's very well written and very well made. The Box set is good and comes in six DVDs, I really like the box set. What I like about this series is how the comedy is just brilliant and makes me laugh-out-loud, better than most sitcoms or comedy series. Also how they managed to use many sources from the video game, and they built a story around the effects they could do with the video game. Great characters, memorable scenes and jokes, RVB is amongst the best thing ever to be put on DVD

5.0 out of 5 stars Smaller and Better! August 8, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Smaller box with 6 disc = Awesome; and the remastered version is alot better, even if you own the original, get the remastered too, its great to have both!

Improvements: Full Screen; HD; and the "camera" doesnt have an on-screen aiming sight (as in the original alot of scenes you noticed it)

and the price isn't too bad either =)

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Believe It's Been 8 Years (No Spoilers) June 14, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In honor of Red vs Blue Season 9 starting tonight, I'll give people reasons to experience the beginning. This set is remastered, and it looks amazing. I remember when it was shot in a super letterboxed screen and the little reticule in the middle, but series reminds me of a movie rather than a web series. The hours the guys spent recreating each screen definitely paid off. The dialogue of this show is the meat and potatoes of the show, (with action scenes sprinkled throughout the journey.) Every character has hilarious lines, even minor characters like Wyoming, Junior, Sister, Vic, even Vic's answering machine to name a few. Also everyone has had awesome moments throughout the series, anyone remember Donut's surprisingly good grenade throw? Or inside Caboose's reality challenged mind? The bickering relationships between all the characters are spectacular. Sarge, Grif, Simmons and Donut may hate each other, but to them there's nothing worse a Blue soldier, and same goes for the Blues.

The plot is a little odd near the end, but it they make it work. The Blood Gulch Chronicles has comedy more as it's priority, where Recollection balanced comedy and a deeper integrated plot. Blood Gulch is where everything started, and is where old and new fans can enjoy all the crazy shenanigans in one place.
