After a startling and intriguing first season, VOlume 2 feels too short and too samey.
A season less than half the length of the initial offering with a bunch of stories that feel all a bit too similar and oddly comfortable. The Unreal Engine gets a hell of a workout but it feels more like a collection of tech demos and less like storytelling.

We are SMACK BANG in the middle of Uncanny Valley all too often
2 Years after the first series of “Love, Death and Robots” the second volume of 8 episodes has been released onto the unsuspecting viewership of the streaming giant Netflix. After the 18 episodes of the initial series, it feels a bit like a half series, as opposed to a fully rounded new experience.
Dion, Quinny and Peta take up their positions as the avatars of Love, Death and Robots respectively in this podcast, while deciding if this is a “F&*k / Marry / Kill” game of animated entertainment.
