The guys over at Rooster Teeth Productions have been making Red vs Blue for ten years now. It is one of the longest running internet series today, has garnered millions of fans worldwide and has received many awards including “Best Internet Series” from the IAWTV Awards in 2011. In those ten years, Roosterteeth.com has gone from being a forum site to go to watch and discuss the latest episode to being it’s own community site will over one million site members. Well, a few months ago, a survey was released by the creators for their community members to fill out. The survey consisted of questions regarding the communities favorite moments from seasons one through nine of the series. And now those votes have been tabulated and the winners have been brought together to give to you: The Best Red vs Blue DVD Ever. Of All Time.
I really enjoyed this best of collection and the way it was presented. When you see other “best of” clip shows, its usually hosted by one of the stars of the show and they would usually say things like, “Well, if you think that little mishap was funny, than take a look at all the other times this has happened to one of us!” Well, the Rooster Teeth guys did things a little different. Since this collection was put together by the votes of the community, this “best of” collection is brought to us in the way of an awards show.
Yeah, an awards show, complete with a red carpet pre-show hosted by nobodies favorite American Grifball League of America commissioner….The Commissioner.
The first ever Red vs Blue Awards show was hosted by the unofficial leader of the Blue Army, Private Leonard Church, and offered lots of bickering, heckling, and all out shouting matches from the audience. Along with seeing Church at the podium, we also got to see show favorites Tucker, Sarge, Simmons, Grif, Donut, Wash, Tex, Andy the Bomb, Sister, Junior, and of course, Caboose, come up and announce winners and categories. Some of the categories included are: Best Moments from seasons one through nine, favorite character lines, best episodes from seasons one through nine, favorite Grifball miniseries, favorite miniseries, and many others.
I’ve gotta say, it was really nice reliving all of these classic moments from Red vs Blue. I’ve been a fan of the series for a very long time and it’s really cool seeing the creators show their appreciation to their fans by letting them choose their favorite moments from the series.
Also, the awards show aspect was a nice touch, because we all know Donut’s been practicing his Oscar speech for years now, and the guys did it to a tee. As various characters would take the stage to announce categories, there would be the occasional bad joke, not to mention the Red vs Blue brand of humor that was heckling from the Reds when a Blue was on stage, or Sister accusing Wash of being a cop when he was on stage.
My only problem with the show, is that I think Donut should have been the host instead of Church. I can see why Church was hosting seeing as that he gets angry and blows up on people easily, which is not what you want a host to do. But Donut would have been better in my opinion because he would have taken what a normal awards show host does to an all new level. Probably would’ve included a song and dance number which would have been hilarious to see.
Other than that, The Best Red vs Blue DVD Ever. Of All Time was an absolute pleasure to watch, and we here at OMBG give it two thumbs up!
