I'll watch S2 though haven't even finished S1 yet. I haven't recommended this to anyone because it's so hit or miss.

- The farming one - loved it
- Three Robots - loved it
- The MMA fighter thing - liked it
- The Dump - fun but predictable
- Alternate history timelines - dumb
- The witness - too long and also predictable

I do like the diverse animation styles, but about half the stories I just don't care about or like.

I can totally see this being an evolution of Heavy Metal.

The majority of these are good to great, but "Alternate Histories" is embarrassingly bad, and "Fish Night" doesn't have much going for it beyond the visuals. I'm looking forward to the second season.

just could not get into this one tried two episodes and started a third but lost interest a few minutes into that one and no desire to revisit it.

I watched through about 9 of them and their are a couple decent ones but the majority of them are mediocre. They also tend to have no endings like those SNL skits where they have a good idea but can't figure out how to end it.

Considering there's nothing else like this on TV I'm glad we got what we got. I see these as more art short-films, experiments. I appreciate that Netflix is allowing the producers of these shorts to express themselves. I love animation, and appreciate the effort put into these.

That said, it must take a fair amount of time to produce each short film- should be a while until we get the next one.

Maybe. But really it's a bunch of studios doing their own thing at the same time, may not be crazy long between seasons

i guess I am easy to please as I really liked these shorts. Each was interesting visually and told a short story that held my attention. i am glad to read it was renewed.

I want to see Todd McFarlane make a contribution. The format seems perfect for him.

I still want them to continue the HBO Spawn series right from where they left off...

Judging from a previous snl thread I don't think there are many Sturgill Simpson fans on here but if you are check out his Sound and Fury anime on Netflix, it fits in well with Love, Death and Robots - especially the first four segments, the slave one and the post credit run.

​​It's basically a loosely connected long music video, but I do hope Netflix keeps going full speed ahead with these Heavy Metal-inspired specials.

I finally got around to his over the weekend and really enjoyed them for the most part. I favored the cyber/horror ones over the standard ones. The first one just sets it up nicely and is my favorite of them all. I also dug the aliens/farmer one, as that uses the same style animation that they used for Spiderverse.

Can't wait for season 2!
