When it comes to the Halo television show, one thing is perfectly clear. The series has not offered what fans of the video game franchise expected. While members of The Covenant have popped up here and there, the Paramount+ show has largely been devoid of the kind of action people likely expected. The war between the aliens and the humans has largely been a bit of a cold war, with skirmishes here and there. There have been some episodes that have shown just how overmatched the UNSC is when it comes to going up against the big bads of the show a few times, but mostly the first seven episodes have been all about setting up the pieces on the board.
