Halo Fans React After Pablo Schreiber Slams Those Who Didn’t Like The Series
Paramount’s Halo television series received mixed reception. The decision to pursue a new story was not well received by many who played the games. Additionally, specific choices like actor Pablo Schreiber spending screen time without a helmet as Master Chief have upset many fans. On April 4, Pablo decided to call the people against the show.
In his tweet, Pablo claimed he had no problem with fans skipping the show before watching it. He said he respects the opinion of fans who disagree with him.

Despite Pablo’s claims, fans were far from convinced. Some felt that actors should never belittle hardcore fans. Others said their biggest problem was running the TV series.
The screenplay has recently come under criticism. Most fans felt the second episode was a step backwards. Despite what Pablo does as Master Chief, one fan thinks a significant problem with the show is the script itself.
Another fan also reiterated the same fact. They believe Pablo is more than capable of playing the part of a Spartan. However, the show’s storyline disappoints hardcore Halo fans.
Some fans are less than happy with Pablo for criticizing those who haven’t liked the show so far. A Twitter user said calling reviews like this can never be a good thing. Despite what Pablo claimed in his own tweet, many who didn’t like the show seem to have watched it.
For some, the design and execution so far are less than ideal. This includes the controversial decision to allow Master Chief to remove his helmet. It should be noted that the character has never been seen without his helmet across any game.
Paramount may have taken a bold step by following a new timeline with the Halo TV series. One fan said he was never against the adaptation, but was disappointed with the number of changes to the game’s lore.
A fan took a look at Pablo’s tweet, which indicated that a few people had decided they didn’t like the show without even watching it. The fan in question asked how they were supposed to watch the show when it was region-locked to the UK.
To some, the Halo TV series is just a sci-fi show with the name of the franchise attached to it.
One Halo fan calls Pablo Schreiber’s tweet the classic Hollywood defense mechanism. They claimed that a tweet from the lead actor defending poor writing and direction was a common move.
While Pablo Schreiber may have tweeted to clarify his opinion, overall reception for the Halo TV series has been poor. It’s clear from the responses that fans don’t have a problem with the actor but with the overall execution of the series. However, it remains to be seen if the remaining seven episodes can redeem the show.
