Steve turned me on to Red vs. Blue, an online sitcom. Online sitcom? I know, that’s so late 90s but this one’s different. The people responsible used the characters in the Xbox game Halo as their actors and did the voice-overs themselves. I’ve seen this concept before and it wasn’t particularly well done: something was usually off, either the dialog sounded wrong (read: out of character) or the animation was sketchy. These guys, however, look like they’ve put a lot of thought into the endeavor: it’s obviously scripted and storyboarded with interesting camera angles and witty dialogue that is completely consistent with what guys stuck in some out-of-the-way military outpost would say.

They produce one a week and there is currently nine available. There is some profanity, but you’re not going to let that stop you. Enjoy! (Their FAQ is hilarious as well.)
