I’ve read that Netflix alters the episode order of Love, Death + Robots based upon the viewing habits of the particular subscriber. Annnnd…who cares? All Netflix likely knows about me is what I actually watch so if they’re tailoring the order of episodes due to what they perceive as my preferences, who cares (especially when […]
Ice Age is a pretty good episode, though I think I’ve seen it somewhere before. It’s well done, but the conceit is hardly an original one. It’s also the first, and likely the only, episode of the series that uses primarily live action and it’s a welcome change.

In the premiere episode, Sonnie’s Edge, we meet Sonnie, who’s the best beast fighter around. Someone offers her hundreds of thousands of dollars to lose a match, which she refuses. But when you […]
