For some, Season 11 lacked plot. For others, Season 11 went back to Red vs. Blue's roots. To be honest, both are true.
Season 12, however, does what Season 2 did only with better direction and a less confusing plot. It introduces new heroes and villains and has a pretty good story while still managing to be hilarious.
The good: Humor, action, story, the shenanigans we've come to know and love from these simulation troopers. Also, excellent direction and cinematography. Each season seems to become more and more cinematic, and I like that. It feels like a show you'd see on TV. Even better, it's setting up a long arc that makes me think that we'll have another few seasons at least.
The bad: Some of my favorite characters were not present for most or all of the season, although the others held their own. Also, most of the new characters they introduced felt flat and gimmicky. Fortunately, they did not get much screen time in most of the episodes.
Overall, if you've enjoyed Red vs. Blue (even if you didn't like season 11), give Season 12 a shot.
