Love, Death & Robots Season 1 Review
March 18, 2019 at 1:55am
This is a Netflix Original Series in the style of an anthology. It's a selection of short animated films that each highlight a particular concept based around the show title. They're wild little stories and there's just such a neat selection of them to watch. There's a good viewing length here and it's split into nice bite sized chunks.
Not all of them are amazing, but for the most part there are some very interesting concepts that are explored. It leans heavily into the Sci-Fi side of things and is incredibly graphic. There are high levels of violence, sexuality and some distinct tales that are standalone from one another. You also get a mix of art styles as each episode is visually different from the others.
This keeps things fresh and you're never sure what might pop up next. They had some very interesting hyper-realistic designs whereas other episodes were more of a traditional style. They even had a neat live action type one that I quite enjoyed, it's shown in the image where this civilization grows within a freezer.
There are some very unique concepts shown throughout this anthology. They varied greatly, and you were never sure where things were headed. Some featured futuristic elements, some were more grounded whereas others went completely off in separate time eras. There was lots of action, intense sexual sections at times which were often layered with hilarity and it was just enjoyable.
I loved how wild they went, holding nothing back and just going all out. There are a total of eighteen episodes present, they range from under ten minutes to just under twenty minutes. I found "Three Robots", "Lucky 13", "Beyond the Aquila Rift " and "Ice Age" to be my favorites. Others were also great, I just found these to be particularly neat. "The Witness" is worth a mention for having something very creative and "When the Yogurt Took Over" was a funny bizare type of situation.
Love, Death & Robots Season 1 brings a wild selection of eighteen strange anthology episodes. It's easy to pick and choose if you'd like as they have small, easily congestible run times. Nothing goes on for too long, and you get a wild offering. Some of these are just over the top and will surprise. You're never sure what's around the corner and they're mostly shocking.
Not in a bad way though, in the sense that they aren't limited in any way. It can be graphic, rather charming or just wild action. You'll see crazy machines in action, wildly distinct futures and some amazing art. Some of the episodes go above and beyond in their art style. There's just so much color and style here that I was always pleasantly surprised by what popped up.
