I'm on the opposite end of you. *sp* (Fan Creations)

I genuinely don’t understand the general fan reaction. I don’t think there’s necessarily anything wrong with doing a straight adaptation, although I recognize it would probably be much more difficult to pull off successfully. But I don’t get the hate for them establishing their own canon. Comic books have been doing this since the beginning, and I never see anyone bitching about it.

Halo is a cool universe. I’m happy to see them play in it without being beholden to specifics from a long series of previous decisions. Especially when I do feel like the show captures the things I like about Halo. I also don’t really see the characterization of the Chief being that different from anything we’ve seen before—they just skipped all the boring shit where he’s just a weapon the UNSC points at whatever they want dead.
