So Lasky picked up the beacon or whatever it was that Cortana said she'd drop at the end of Halo 3, and then has a flashback when he goes through the transmission. Hmm.
From a critical standpoint, the first episode seems like a cheesy, average, coming of age story with a new skin on it.
But as a Halo fan, this is great to watch. Personally, I'd take this over a feature-length movie tie in. Forward unto Dawn (as well as The Thursday War) is PERFECT for staving off my hunger to play Halo 4.
Currently playing MGS2 (360) and Super Mario 3D Land (2DS)
