The Horrible Show 09-15-10: Your Opinion is Wrong: Halo

The Horrible ShowIn our first debate on The Horrible Show, Ethan tries to maintain order as Justin and Christina pick apart the Halo franchise, Halo: Reach, Bungie’s future, and each other. Help us decide who wins and figure out where the hell Cole is. Send in your questions to simon@horriblenight.com or @TheHorribleShow

We lied. We thought we’d take a week off with Cole leaving, but The Horrible Show can go on. We thought we’d try a different format with just the three of us, and Justin and Christina were long overdue for a Halo fight. In our Threesomes of the Week we have a surprise interruption just in time to save us from country music. Next up is our On the Spot question submitted by Moses5885: What director would you like to see handle the Halo Movie? And what actor should play Master Chief? Where we all hope that Christina’s fear of Vin Diesel does not come into a reality. Our Halo debate is broken down into several different styles to cover everything we can about the series from the games, the companies, to our predictions for the future of the series. This isn’t without a point, we want to know who won the debate – Justin, Christina, or Ethan. Check out the link below to help us decide and enter to win a 3-month Xbox Live Gold Subscription. We close out the episode peacefully with a wonderful haiku from Christina.
