Red vs. Blue: Season 1 is the first full season of Red vs. Blue. It first aired on April 1, 2003. The season follows the accounts of the Red Team; which consists of: the leader, Sarge; the lazy Grif; the so-called "kiss-ass" Simmons; the semi-idiotic but free-spirited Donut; and the Spanish-speaking robot Lopez; and the accounts of the Blue Team; which consists of: the de facto leader, Church; the self-proclaimed ladies' man, Tucker; the clueless and ignorant Caboose; and the Freelancer Tex, who is often associated with the Blue Team.

Its success led to it becoming the first installment of The Blood Gulch Chronicles.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

The first season of the action-comedy series Red vs. Blue and part of The Blood Gulch Chronicles. A gruff sergeant. An unlucky ghost. A psychotic mercenary. A sarcastic slacker. An unrepentant kiss-up. Two morons. A tank with impeccable manners. And a robot stuck on the Spanish setting... War is hell.
