Paramount's live-action Halo show has all sorts of ups and downs in the first season, but last week's episode pushed a lot of fans over the edge after featuring a raunchy scene between Master Chief and the character Makee.

If you've been questioning the script, you're not alone. Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto has now also admitted he's just as confused as fans about where the "inspiration" has come from for these sorts of scenes to be popping up.

"Yeah, I’m not sure where the inspiration for the show comes from now. Not the Halo I made."

He added to this in a follow-up tweet - clarifying that he "never said" he didn't like it, but that it's just "so different" to the Halo universe he helped make.

"For clarity, I never said I didn't like it. It's just so different than the Halo I helped make - like it's a different universe."

This "different universe" is technically the Halo Silver timeline, which has no links with the book or video game timeline, and is not considered to be "core-canon". Lehto also took the opportunity to mention some things he liked about the show:

"I actually like some of the battle scenes. Cool action and some great VFX. In particular, the plasma hit effects in ep1 are spot on."

Although Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto has mixed feelings about the Halo television show, he has given his blessing to the Halo Infinite video game - noting how it "brings back the magic to the magic". Lehto is nowadays working with EA on the Battlefield series.

Paramount has already confirmed a second season of the Halo show is on the way.
