Love, Death & Robots
Created by Tim Miller. With Scott Whyte, Nolan North, Steven Pacey, Emily O’Brien. A collection of animated short stories that span various genres including science fiction, fantasy, horror and comedy.
At eight episodes, season two is much shorter than season one’s 18 episodes, and none of them really reach the quality of the first season. The effects are all top notch and the animation teams deserve your attentions, but nearly all of the stories were either too close to other familiar stories (tall grass) or hit way too close to uncomfortable subjects (shooting babies in their faces because who knows why, just keep shooting babies and showing dead children?). I’m particularly confused about the last story which was a whimsical stroll through the results of a Lilliputian’s discovery of a dead Guiliver on a beach.
Since it’s so short though, I still suggest checking it out because maybe you’ll find something that I didn’t appreciate.
