Why Is Netflix’s ‘Love, Death & Robots’ a Science Fiction Masterpiece?




After Netflix’s super interactive film Bandersnatchand hyper-stylish, superhero drama The Umbrella Academy, comes another modern-day mind-bending sci-fi anthology ‘Love, Death & Robots’ but unlike the previous shows, this series is fully animated which will blow your mind. Animated movies and shows are no more restricted to kids, gamers and Internet nerds; it’s crossing its comfort zone and delving deep into the adult space by introducing never-seen-before visuals and super twisty stories.






‘Love Death & Robots’ is extraordinarily brilliant and binge-worthy series that can be consumed randomly because all episodes tell a different story just like ‘Black Mirror’ but the duration of each episode in ‘Love, Death & Robots’ is super short. Most episodes are only 7-16 minutes long. All the episodes are made passionately and you can see the creativity involved throughout the series.


‘Love, Death & Robots’ mixes genres, animation styles and introduces a brand new online streaming experience. The world is changing, and we are living in some very interesting times where everything seems to be changing for good. We are no more restricted to age-old genres; there is a new wave of flexibility in the pop-culture space. From weird and absurd films to mind-blowing, ultra thoughtful shows, there is something for everyone now.


From cyberpunk, post-apocalyptic fiction, a future murder mystery to fantasy, horror, black comedy, steampunk, space opera, alternative history and art, ‘Love, Death & Robots’ has it all. There are 18 episodes in this series and every story is equally satisfying. David Fincher surely knows how to play with cool colour palettes and shock its audience with plot twists. This show is a visual masterpiece.


The show starts with Sonnie’s Edge (17 minutes), which definitely serves as a cunning bait for trapping its audience to stay on the show and it succeeds brilliantly with its extra-punch.


Episode 2: Three Robots (11 minutes): Here robots are seen embarking on a sightseeing tour after the fall of humanity. Metaphorical and funny at the same time, Three Robots is completely enthralling.


Episode 3: The Witness (12 minutes): This murder mystery with stunning graphics surely sets a new standard in the animation space. This episode is sleek and will keep you at the edge throughout the end.


Episode 4: Suits (17 minutes): Tells a story of future farmers who fight with homemade machines to thwart an alien invasion. This episode has one of the coolest beginnings.


Episode 5: Sucker of Souls (13 minutes): An interesting tale of demons versus mercenaries.


Episode 6: When the Yogurt took over (6 minutes): One of the funniest of all, When the Yogurt took over is deep and metaphorical.


Episode 7: Beyond the Aquila Rift (16 minutes): Super real animations, Beyond the Aquila Rift, is all about cryo sleep and simulations.


Episode 8: Good Hunting (17 minutes): Surely, one of the top episodes in the series, Good Hunting mixes the Steampunk, horror and fantasy with extreme panache.


Episode 9: The Dump (10 minutes): Extremely quirky, this episode explores the emotions of garbage and garbage dwellers with a mechanical twist.


Episode 10: Shape-shifters (16 minutes): This supernatural thriller tells a tale of two marines with superhuman powers.


Episode 11: Helping Hand (10 minutes): One of the top shows in the series, this space thriller will surely send a chill down your bones.


Episode 12: Fish Night (10 minutes): A beautiful and simple tale of father and son stuck in a desert experiencing a dreamlike voyage with a surprise twist.


Episode 13: Lucky 13 (14 minutes): Strategically placed, the thirteenth episode Lucky 13 tells a story of a drop-ship.


Episode 14: Zima Blue (10 minutes): Surely, the best episode in the entire series, Zima Blue is artistic, scientific and brilliantly narrated.


Episode 15: Blindspot (8 minutes): A cyborg heist story with an emotional end.


Episode 16: Ice Age (10 minutes): The only episode in the entire series where human actors are mixed with an animated universe.


Episode 17: Alternate Histories (7 minutes): Purely ‘What If’ stuff where the death of Hitler and its consequences are shown many times in different ways.


Episode 18: The Secret War (16 minutes): The last episode is beautifully made. The Secret War is again a supernatural thriller, which can’t be missed.


The ‘Love, Death and Robots’ experience is purely unforgettable.
