Monster(s): The Covenant
Featuring: Adam, Libby, and David
Rating: Mature (for some offensive language and adult themes)
As a Last Resort, we welcome our audience this week to the Valhalla that is the Halo franchise (2001-2021?) We look at Covenant species with their methane breathing, wormy boi bridge building bodies, and birthday skulls; why Adam gives sentient culture two tactile thumbs up; and whether or not decades long stories should be self contained. You really needler to listen to this one.
