Love, Death + Robots

That’s the title of a new animated Netflix Original, and I can not recommend it enough. It’s mostly modern animation, but as it’s an anthology, every episode is a unique, compelling story. Mostly sci-fi themed stories, but completely original, and very entertaining.

I’m about 10 episodes in, and I am trying hard to only watch 1 or 2 episodes a day, because I don’t want it to end too quickly. Even though this is the “binge-watching age”, I find myself enjoying the programming on Netflix better if I watch only 1 or 2 episodes of any series, then switch to another series.

Right now, I’m enjoying episodes of Star Trek: Voyager, Criminal Minds, Love, Death, + Robots, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Luther (BBC crime drama, also VERY good), American Horror Story (I’m up to Season 5 here), and Sirius The Jaeger (Japanese Anime). I’m also keeping up with the Hasan Minaj show, The Patriot Act, which releases new episodes on Sundays.

Right now, I feel like consuming a few episodes a day, from the six series I’m currently following is keeping my attention, and keeping me well entertained. Some new stuff, some great old stuff. I’m always perusing the “Trending Now” and “New on Netflix” listings, looking for anything interesting, because sooner or later, I’m going to reach the end of one of the six regulars. The Netflix Original series only release a dozen or so episodes a year, and older stuff like Criminal Minds, I’ve seen many multiple times. I only watch them still because I enjoy the script formula, and the characters. I think this is only the second time through Star Trek: Voyager, so it’s great fun rediscovering why I liked the series in the first place. Strong characters, interesting problems, hilarious techno-babble to solve every problem.

    I just watched the best episode of Love, Death, + Robots. Sci-Fi TO THE MAX! animation’s strongest power is it’s ability to represent things that are not possible in real life. No need for special effects, because animation can deal with difficult details without risking real -people. Such a great story
