Love Death And Robots Season 2 aka Love Death + Robots Season 2 released on Netflix today. It is created and produced by Tim Miller along with Joshua Donen, David Fincher and Jennifer Miller. The first season released in 2019 and received rave reviews from critics and viewers. So, did the second season manage to keep up to its predecessor? Let’s find out.
Season 2 episodes of this adult animated anthology series are under 18 minutes like the first one. There are only eight episodes this time, each written, directed and animated by different people and studios. If you are a fan of the show, you know that Netflix gives different sequence to every user. You’ll never know what you start with and how it ends for you. That’s the beauty of this show.
The names of Netflix’s Love Death and Robots Season 2 episodes are Automated Customer Service, Ice, Pop Squad, Snow in the Desert, The Tall Grass, All Through The house, Life Hutch, and The Drowned Giant. These episodes are directed by Meat Dept (Kevin Dan Ver Meiren, David Nicolas, Laurent Nicolas); Robert Valley, Jennifer Yuh Nelson, Leon Berelle, Dominique Boidin, Remi Kozyra and Maxime Luere; Simon Otto, Elliot Dear, Alex Beaty and Tim Miller, respectively.
In the latest season, you will have robots, different planets, scary giant creatures and horror. These episodes speak of a future that might or might not happen. But they tell us that it will not be pleasant for human life as they get more advanced and intelligent.
I do not want to give away a single spoiler in my Love Death and Robots Season 2 review. But I will give you a heads up that this season is not a fan of kids for sure! It’s not a fan of planet Earth and, of course, humans in general. But I want to ask you a question – if you have to kill your cute little pet so that your vacuum cleaner doesn’t kill you, what will you do? Well, that’s the level of discomfort you will experience in one of the episodes.
However, season 2 lacks some chilling moments compared to the first season. Last time, every episode made me drop my jaw. But this time, I felt that while watching only Automated Customer Service, Pop Squad, All Through The House and the creepiest of all – The Drowned Giant. I’m not surprised that Tim Miller directed The Drowned Giant because now it has become one of my worst fears. I knew what to expect from The Tall Grass as I’ve already seen Netflix’s horror film In The Tall Grass, and they have a similar horror base.
Now let’s talk about the animation of Love Death and Robots Season 2. Just one word – Sensational. As I mentioned above, each episode is animated by a different studio, and they have done a marvellous job. The visuals are stunning. Whether it’s 2D or 3D animation, the characters look nuanced and human enough on the screen. The studios who animated these episodes are – Atoll Studio, Passion Animation Studios, Blur Studio, Unit Image, Axis Animation, and Blink Industries.
Love Death And Robots Season 2: Is it worth watching?
Overall, Love Death + Robots Season 2 was worth the two years wait. It’s eerie, uncomfortable, and harrowing. It’s not as brilliant as the first season, but it’s worth watching. Usually, when we are on the last episode of a Netflix show, it doesn’t give us the’ next episode’ option. But the makers have specifically added the ‘next episode’ option even after the last episode and season 1 starts playing. The makers really want to keep you looped in their spine-chilling world. With this, the digital platform outdid itself after Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.
Love Death + Robots Season 2 is currently streaming on Netflix.
