Everything You Need To Know About The New Netflix Hit "Love, Death And Robots"

With "Love, Death & Robots," Tim Miller had the perfect chance to give new life to animation for TV: 18 shorts made for adults, with plenty of sex, violence, and gore.

In spite of all the technological breakthroughs of the last years, mainstream animation has stayed in the realm of movies for children and a few exceptions, usually niche or cult movies, and still many people are very wary of it and think it's something for people unable to "grow up." 

But to be able to produce these marvels, it takes not only the latest technology, but also the sharpest minds in the industry. Now we are fortunate enough to witness an emergence of animation made for grown ups. 


With Love, Death & Robots, Tim Miller had the perfect chance to give new life to animation for TV: 18 shorts made for adults, with plenty of sex, violence, and gore. However, these shorts not only have shock value, they are true animation gems. With them, you will be able to see the latest techniques and advances in the world of animation from all over the world. 


Love, Death & Robots is a visual smorgasbord. Each of the 18 episodes features a unique style of animation; each one is a delightful surprise. Even the most classical techniques employed, such as the one we see in "Three Robots," are delivered with an impeccable aesthetic sense and feel perfectly aligned with the story.  


According to creator Tim Miller, all the artists were contacted specifically for the project by his own studio, Blur Studio. Each one of them has a specific talent: video game, film, TV, etcetera, and they made this clear in their work. The surreal style in "Witness" is perfect for the plot, and the images in "Fishing Night" would look off in any other story. You might even think that the plot was devised along with the animation.

The stories

Half of the success of Love, Death & Robots lies in how well written the stories are. The plot is a diverse kaleidoscope with homages and nods to the work of Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, Yasukata Tsutsui, Stephen King, Hayao Miyazaki, and more. This is one of the best points of the series, on top of a great use of black humor -the common thread in all the spisodes- each episode is a well-constructed story about a deeply human issue: our obsession with technology, moral and ethical debates, environmental issues, animal life (cats, to be more specific), the future and where is humanity headed. These deeply human stories are something rare in a format traditionally neglected as childish.


These stories about Love, Death & Robots remind the viewer of another great TV anthology: Stephen King's Nightmares & Dreamscapes.

Love, Death & Robots was created by Tim Miller and co-produced by David Fincher exclusively for Netflix. The 18 stories, told in less than two hours, will grab your attention with their dark, futuristic, and surreal plots.


If you are a fan of Stephen King, H.P. Lovecraft, Studio Ghibli movies, or staying up late reading I, Robot, this is the series for you. But even if you are not a fan of animation, this is the perfect opportunity for you to give it a chance. We promise you will not be disappointed.
