Trivia:
During Church's eulogy, he was to break out into an Autotune-assisted song called "I am the Best." This was scrapped to meet the deadline for release and was instead included as a deleted scene on the DVD and later music video on the official Rooster Teeth website.See more »

Everyone's favorite incompetent soldiers are back, and still in good form., 18 June 2012

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Taking off just after the end of Recreation; Church Epsilon, Tucker, Caboose, Sarge and Grif are all preparing to return to Valhalla, unaware that Simmons, Lopez, Donut and Doc have their own problems to deal with back there.

Agent Washington is back, and so is The Meta. Only this time they're working together in the search of the AI fragments, which have somehow gone missing. They're holding Simmons and Doc prisoner, while Donut and Lopez are down for the count.

So yeah, just another convoluted plot that the reds and blues get mixed up in.

As with its predecessors, Reconstruction and Recreation, Revelation takes a darker, more serious and more plot-driven tone than The Blood Gulch Chronicles. This change is probably for the better, as it makes the series more generally entertaining than The Blood Gulch Chronicles was, which was simply a laugh-a-minute story about the most pointless war ever in the history of ever.

Which is not to say Revelation isn't funny, because it most certainly is: Caboose is, as usual, the highlight of how hilariously stupid the show can get, while everyone else also provide tons of laughs with awkward situations, rude gestures and language so profane it would make South Park blush (OK, not really, but you get the idea).

What I just realized is that I find this series incredibly funny, not because of clever scripts or good jokes, but because the characters are just naturally prone to ending up in ridiculous situations and pointless arguments due to their personalities, the jokes practically write themselves by now because the creators have become much more in-tune with the characters.

Probably one of the most rewarding moments is early on when Sarge deduces the situation back at Valhalla through a simple radio conversation with Simmons (who has no way of warning him) and his knowledge of his men's annoying habits:

Grif: Simmons sounded good, I guess he's got everything under control.

And then Sarge comes out of nowhere with this:

Sarge: Donut and Lopez are dead and someone's taken Simmons prisoner.

I just couldn't stop laughing after that scene, what a baffling display of unrealistic skill from Sarge of all people.

Animation has also taken a huge step up, while still mostly operating within the boundaries of the Halo 3 engine, the guys at Rooster Teeth use a lot of neat editing tricks to give the scenes a better flow and there's even some scenes that are done entirely in CGI. Watch the massive fight between Tex and the guys halfway through the season for an example.

That's another thing, as with its two predecessors, action has also improved immensely, now you can expect to see blazing gunfights, vehicle chases, straight up fisticuffs and explosions, which coupled with the series' trademark humor makes this season an addictive ensemble piece of an entertaining action-comedy for a wide spectrum of audiences.

Red vs. Blue: Revelation is a great continuation of the Red vs. Blue saga and definitely worth watching.
