"Love, Death & Robots": What are the best episodes?

Jibaro S3E9 Love, death e robots Netflix's Series

Love, Death & Robots: Terrifying creatures, bizarre surprises and acid humor. All that and more in this animated series by Tim Miller and David Fincher.

The best shorts in this animated anthology feature futuristic space nightmares, existential mural artists, and meditative clashes with the unexplainable.

Anthologies always carry a certain amount of risk. Coming up with a definable, overarching theme to hold together contributions from various artists, each with their own diverging sensibilities, is a difficult task. Fortunately, the title of the Netflix animated series "Love, Death, and Robots" does most of the heavy lifting.

Another significant challenge with anthologies is that some sections of the collection will inevitably be more successful than others. They'll be more focused or more sprawling, denser in atmosphere or provide enough space for the story to breathe. The exciting aspect of "Love, Death & Robots" is that it has the potential to allow its various creative teams to expand on their own ideas.
