What makes Tales from the Borderlands so very special? The cast and crew have a few ideas.
Tales from the Borderlands is finished – for now – but we aren’t ready to let go. Neither are Gearbox and Telltale, apparently, getting the cast and crew back together for a retrospective on the series.
The featurette does a great job of outlining why the episodic adventure was so much fun; it developed the Borderlands canon and storyline; it introduced some wonderful, relatable characters (whom season director Nick Herman describes as “a bunch of losers”); it showed another side of life on Pandora; it featured adorable robots; the opportunity to be villainous; the talents of Handsome Jack voice actor Dameon Clarke; delightful antagonist Vasquez; faithfulness to the franchise; and more.
It’s a lengthy video, but if you enjoyed the series you’ll definitely get a laugh out of it. If you’re yet to get on board, maybe it’ll go some way towards pushing you to correct this oversight.
