Netflix's 'Love, Death + Robots' Looks Set To Rival 'Black Mirror'
Love, Death + Robots is a series of short six to 18 minute long episodes that are all completely different from each other in plot, characters and style.
The first episode, 'Sonnie's Edge' looks like a cut scene from a video game and then 'The Witness' looks straight out of a trippy Japanese anime show.
All of the episodes loosely tie in with the show's title, thanks to their futuristic theme. Some are pretty grim and will leave you hiding behind your couch, while others are simply light-hearted with a dash of dark comedy for good measure.
Much like Brooker's Black Mirror, Love, Death + Robots will pull viewers in with a dramatic twist at the end, leaving us yearning for more.
Although it might not be to everyone's taste, arguably, one of the series most desirable qualities is the ability to wrap up so much drama in a quarter of an hour. Viewers can barely work out the setting of each episode before it has all kicked off.

Viewers have certainly praised the show, which is executive produced by David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club), Joshua Donen (House of Cards, Mindhunter), Tim Miller (Deadpool, Terminator: Dark Fate) and Jennifer Miller.

Love Death & Robots on Netflix is a FIRE show! Think Black Mirror with animation and shorter episodes.- Theezy (a black man) (@Theezy) March 25, 2019
I cannot express enough how amazing the anthology series "Love Death and Robots" is. Give it a check on Netflix. 18 short episodes (all less than 20 minutes in duration), and if you love Black Mirror, animation, and sci-fi horror, you'll definitely love this. #lovedeathrobots- nick (@friendcastohyup) March 16, 2019
The Daily Beast's Nick Schager said of the show: "Delivering bleakness and black comedy in distilled form via stories that rarely last more than fifteen minutes, it's like Black Mirror for the ADD-addled video game crowd."
Love, Death + Robots is available to stream on Netflix now.
