I had the opportunity to have an early look at the first episode of the Halo web series Forward Unto Dawn so here’s my thoughts on it. For those that don’t know, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn is a live-action web series set in the Halo universe and will feature Master Chief and other characters that will appear in Halo 4. It takes place at the start of the human and Covenant war and leads up to the events of Halo 4.
Halo fans will love Forward Unto Dawn, but anyone should be able to watch, especially those that like sci-fi. It's not over the top and everything feels grounded. Prior Halo knowledge isn’t necessary, but for fans there’s lots to pick up on and it's right at home in the Halo fiction.
I found myself watching with a giant grin that didn’t let up. The ending implies some awesome stuff is about to happen, and I’m excited to see where the series goes. This is Halo live-action done right and I can’t wait for more.
