I kind of agree. Spartan Ops is... not really all that fun... or at least the missions arent. Like the videos are cool and everything, but the missions themselves are the same maps copy-pasted over and over with different enemy spawns, and they play nowhere near as well as Firefight did. With 4 players it becomes absurdely easy, even on Legendary, the infinite lives are pretty stupid too. You want a real example of how to do Cooperative multiplayer, look at Mass Effect 3's multiplayer.

With this game though, honestly you'll get a far better multiplayer experience out of just playing Campaign with someone, spartan ops is just there so 343 can throw out some kind of "update" every week that makes it look like they're paying attention to the community, despite constant outcry that Firefight was better and a complete lack of patches for SERIOUS issues like the Boltshot Cancel and balance issues like the lack of reliable counters against active Camo and the DMR still being far superior to almost every other possible spawn weapon.

To answer that question; supposedly fifty episodes.

There are 5 missions per episode and there will be 10 episodes gathering up to 50 missions. Possible season 2, no one knows.

I mean Spartan Ops week 2 uses some of the same maps as week 1 did, but this time YOU'RE FIGHTING PROMETHEANS INSTEAD OF COVENANT. Week 3 will put you on a map from week 2, BUT THIS TIME YOU HAVE A WARTHOG, ect. The last episode of week 5 ends with Quarry, the same map of the first mission, but THIS TIME WE'RE GONNA DROP A TON OF SPARTAN LASERS AND HUNTERS!

It's cheap lazy copy-pasting with a spawn editor that's probably easier to do than making a good Forge map.

Can gamers not be grateful at all these days?

These people are meat virgins. They'll be taken by the grill and delicately and tenderly be shown the ways of flavorful meat love. The first time is beautiful.

When you pay $60-$80 for a game nowadays, especially in an economy like this, you have a right to be angry when they half-ass all the cool stuff they said they were going to have.
