'Love, Death, and Robots' premiered on Netflix in March with 18 animated short episode, ranging from six to seventeen minutes. The series takes inspiration from various animation styles, including photorealistic CGI, Rotoscoping, and anime. A big part of the show's appeal was that it is specifically catered to adult tastes and refused to shy away from depicting sexual scenes and violence.
I take this as a sign that the crew listened to the criticisms & took them very seriously and season 2 will fix most of the problems people had with the show in season 1.— Jordan Johnson (@JordanPowers95) June 10, 2019
The series is created by Tim Miller who has previously directed 'Deadpool' and 'Terminator: Dark Fate' and David Fincher acts as the executive producer of the series. As the title of the series points out, the show mainly deals with robot-centric stories, but there are also stories about vampires, space travel, werewolves, and sentient yogurt.
The first season was rated 74% based on 31 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and gave a rating of 6.68/10. The critical consensus on the site reads, "This animated anthology has enough creative Death to satisfy cyberpunk aficionados who Love their Robots to have some Heavy Metal influence, but the series' lofty ambitions are often undercut by a preoccupation with gore and titillation."
It has been reported that Netflix has been experimenting with the kind of content it produces and sees what kind of reception it gets from the audience.
