The amount of stuff produced by Netflix is staggering. Love, Death & Robots is a great example of a programme that gets overlooked in the midst of all the new episodes and movies streaming on a weekly basis (though we rank it as one of the best shows on Netflix). It’s a great series, but it hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves.
For those who have yet to get a glimpse of the third and final season of Breaking Bad on Netflix’s most-watched list, there’s good news: Netflix has just confirmed that the third and final season of Breaking Bad will premiere on May 20. Eight additional episodes will be included in the third edition (just like season 2). But at this point, it’s hard not to be glad that the programme hasn’t yet been added to the ever-expanding list of Netflix titles that will be cancelled in 2022.
You should know that Love, Death & Robots is an anthology series if you haven’t seen it yet. That implies that (like with Black Mirror and Apple TV Plus’ Roar) each episode is unrelated to the preceding one in terms of narrative or characters. In addition, each episode is directed by a different person and animated by a different company. They may vary greatly in appearance and tone because of this. Comedic 3D-animated shorts appear in certain episodes, while dismal cartoons appear in others. There are even a few that combine animation with live-action, which is a rare combination.
Michael B. Jordan and Mary Elizabeth Winstead have both been in the show’s voice cast; John DiMaggio and Nolan North have also provided their voices. David Fincher and Tim Miller, two of Hollywood’s most venerable directors, serve as executive producers (Deadpool).
Love, Death & Robots’ current season of 26 episodes is certainly worth seeing before the third season debuts on Netflix next month. Even better, each episode is limited to a maximum of 20 minutes, with some episodes clocking in at less than 10 minutes. When you’re short on time yet don’t have the energy to sit down and watch a whole episode of a larger series, Love, Death & Robots is a great option.
Even while we can anticipate a continuation of the show’s great dystopian storyline and dark comedy, at least one episode will stray from the anthology format this time around. Season 3 will include a follow-up to “Three Robots,” the second episode of season 1. As a fan favourite, the first episode, which follows three robots as they explore a post-apocalyptic metropolis, seems like an obvious choice for a sequel.
Love, Death & Robots season 3 will premiere on Netflix on May 20, but there are plenty of other shows to keep you occupied till then.
In the mood for a change of pace, maybe something a bit less fictional? Make a note of the They Call Me Magic premiere date in your calendar.
