Halo is Microsoft's pride and joy. Not only is Master Chief the face of Xbox, but he's been everywhere, including Windows 11 marketing materials. The point is, Halo and MC are a big deal and even when the games sometimes divide fans (Halo 5), the franchise remains at the forefront of people's minds. But despite its merits, popularity, and ability to withstand the test of time, can it translate well to TV?

If you form your answer based on the show's Rotten Tomatoes score, the answer is: Eh, kind of. But — and we have a big "but" to add here — those are just other people's opinions. Even if the show's not a narrative tour de force poised to redefine the medium, it can still be plain-old fun to the right watcher. So that's why we want to know your opinion of the show. How's Master Chief's Paramount+ adventure striking you, so far?

Maybe you absolutely loved the debut episode and are eager for more. Perhaps you hated how it diverged from established Halo tropes and are going to go back to Halo Infinite and give up on the show. Or, you could be entirely neutral about what you watched. Whatever your stance is, we want to know.

Here at Windows Central, we had a positive assessment of Halo Season 1 episode 1, enjoying the action despite some of the questionable character choices along the way.

In case you haven't watched the show yet and want a cost-effective way to give it a test drive, know that Xbox fans can stream the series for free via Game Pass. Or, you can pony up some cash and pay Paramount for programming the old-fashioned way.



Paramount+ offers its subscribers access to countless TV shows and movies, including exclusive shows like the Halo TV series and Star Trek: Picard. It's available via the Paramount website, with apps also offered on iOS, Android, and popular TV app stores.
