Red vs. Blue is the first machinima to attract widespread attention outside of the machinima community, and for good reason: Its mix of lowbrow humor, absurdist drama, and science fiction tropes made it accessible to everyone who had ever picked up a controller. Set in a corner of the Halo universe, it tells the story of two groups of soldiers supposedly fighting a civil war in an isolated canyon...except it soon becomes apparent that they're all under the same command. The series is complex, hilarious, and long—running at 100 episodes—and is better than 90% of what you watch on broadcast TV.
