Currently 8.7/10 at IMDb with 52k votes.

"Sentient dairy products, werewolf soldiers, robots gone wild, garbage monsters, cyborg bounty hunters, alien spiders and blood-thirsty demons from hell - all converge in eighteen NSFW animated stories." Presented by Tim Miller (Deadpool, ...) & David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club, The Social Network, ...).

The trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUFwunMKa4E is probably THE most hardcore (in more than one way) trailer I ever saw! yikes yikes yikes

Watched the first two episodes - great!

Re: Love, Death & Robots [Animation, Comedy, Fantasy, Sci-Fi]

I've watched half of them so far and they go from pretty good to great. Overall it is a great collection of different genres and generally outstanding animation.

Re: Love, Death & Robots [Animation, Comedy, Fantasy, Sci-Fi]

After watching the Ice Age episode recently (what a great idea!), today I watched the Alternate Histories episode:

Want to see Hitler die in a variety of comically fantastic ways? Now you can. Welcome to Multiversity!

Soooooo funny!! big_smile big_smile

This show is only present on 1727 watchlists... check it out!

Re: Love, Death & Robots [Animation, Comedy, Fantasy, Sci-Fi]

I highly recommend people watch Love, Death & Robots!! big_smile

I enjoyed all 18 shorts, and a few of them are pure eye-candy!! My favorites are Sonnie's Edge, Suits, Beyond the Aquila Rift, Good Hunting, Shape-Shifters, Lucky 13, and Zima Blue. Funniest ones to me were Three Robots, When the Yogurt Took Over, The Dump, and Alternate Histories. What I love about LD&R is the fact that even the worst short is decent enough to watch since they're only 15 mins long, and wouldn't make much sense skipping through it.

I totally agree! I really hope they'll add another season. smile

In in some shorts they have really nice, photorealistic CGI/animation.

I personally found this show all style over substance.  Visually, it's stunning in places, but as for the stories I thought they were largely meh.

That's the second biggest X I've ever seen.

Sorry to hear that you didn't like it that much. Still 8.7/10 at IMDb.

Re: Love, Death & Robots [Animation, Comedy, Fantasy, Sci-Fi]

Somehow I never got around to watching the very last episode... until today! smile

Really good, I'll probably watch some of the episodes again some day. I've rewatched the Hitler episode already. lol

Re: Love, Death & Robots [Animation, Comedy, Fantasy, Sci-Fi]

Some were good, some were amazing, others were bad.
On average, I would sort of agree with the current 8.6 in IMDB.  Maybe a little lower.

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

I was really underwhelmed with the whole thing.  So much hype which I thought was really unjustified.  I thought some were ok, some were pretty bad, and some were terrible!  Isn't it strange how we're all different?

What hype?

Maybe you were in a bad mood when watching? Like Wizard said: "Some were good, some were amazing" - it is extremely unlikely for anyone with a taste for Comedy and Sci-Fi to (mostly) dislike this multi-faceted series. smile

Of course not, everyone is different.  I like both comedy and sci fi, and I don't think I found any of LD&R funny.

I watched it over a few days, I can't have been in a bad mood for the whole time.  Just maybe some of it smile

Hehe, ok... then let's file your dislike for the show under "mysteries of the universe". cool
