    I know it is the Halo series, but while watching the first episode, I could not escape the fact I was watching a perception of the future where we forcibly send children [some of them are there against their will; their families are making them go] off to war academies to become soldiers.

    This show starts Pre-Halo 4, so there is no huge enemy yet to warrant drafting people into military service to fight for humanity's survival. The antagonist by this stage are the "Insurrectionists," a civilian terrorist group.

    Seems like we traveled 500 years into the past rather than 500 years into the future [Halo franchise takes place during the 26th century] in terms of moral progression of humanity.

    On a lighter note, I'm pleased with it.
