    An anthology of NSFW animated short stories that span various genres including science fiction, fantasy, horror and comedy.

    Reviews are buzzing about this show. I've seen the first three or four episodes and I'm loving it so far. Sublimely animated, art is fantastic. Very mature material, though.

    Just started watching. Quality is mixed. Sometimes feels like it’s being over the top NSFW just for the sake of it (look how edgy we are, we just dropped the c bomb). Watchable though. Favourite episode so far the yoghurt one.

    Second episode read like a mediocre comment from r/writersprompt. Bit cringe for me tbh. Liked the first episode... gonna watch ep 3 and a few more now. Hoping for a bit more of the first and less of the second.

    I'm liking what I'm seeing so far (2 episodes in). I'm not the biggest fan of animation but this is unlike anything I've ever seen.

    Beast fighting: Miss.

    Robot trio of buddies: Big hit. That could be a fun series on its own.

    Rednecks in mechs vs aliens: Hit.

    Great mini series. Why does it remind me of black mirror a bit? Is it from some of the same producers?

    Nah, David Fincher I think.

    But yeah it is a sort of animated Black Mirror that's way more OTT

    I saw the trailer for this on Netflix yesterday and from that it looks incredible. Hopefully be able to hit it some time this weekend. From what I could see the different styles of animation looked amazing.

    I remember the short story first episode was based on. No idea what's it called or who wrote it, though.

    Some good stuff in there. Would definitely recommend persisting through any episodes that don’t float your boat.

    That was good. I also liked the desert fish one. And the werewolf one.

    Missus was asleep on the couch while I popped that one on last night... Kept looking over nervously to check as I don't know what explanation I could give for what I was watching :lol:

    Animation is dope as feck though...

    :lol: I've had exactly the same. She woke up and came downstairs when I was watching that episode when they were in that freaky club, so I decided to just turn it off.

    ha, a comment on youtube

    Sales pitch - "3 words.. Love. Death. Robots"

    Netflix - "I don't know what that means but here's millions of dollars!"

    Nah, she didn't see anything, but wouldn't have said anything either way. Which is why I turned it off as I would have tried to explain something without her even asking.

    Just finished it and lots of good in there! A few of them miss the mark for me but the majority were enjoyable.

    Are the episodes independent of each other or does it follow a main story?

    All independent. Most are about 15 to 20 minutes long, some are even less than 10.

    I just watched these two and during the fish one all I kept thinking was,

    “This is bat country”
    - Fear and Loathing

    And reassuring myself that I still hadn’t taken any acid.
    Loved the Dog soldiers episode.

    Watched the first 7 episodes stoned last night. My favorite was 'Witness', 'three robots' and the one with the farmer but all of them have been top notch so far! The animation is crazy good.

    4 episodes in and this is the most silliest thing I've seen in a while. The animation is fantastic but as a whole, it is just so... silly.

    I've tried to watch it but it's so... childish? Not the animation, but the story itself.

    Yup. The voice acting is poor too. And they try too hard to be edgy.

    Great slice of eye candy. I like it... Think I'm halfway through. Sonnies edge, 3 robots, suits, hunt and soul sucker's are good. Would watch again.

    Finished it. Loved it. The Secret Wars, Beyond The Aquila Rift and Good Hunting are my favourites. Secret Wars, especially, I think would make a great video game setting.

    In order of favourites: Sucker Of Souls,Three Robots,Good Hunting,Zima Blue,When The Yogurt Took Over and Beyond The Aquila Rift.

    The voice acting,and general dialogue,of the first episode is particularly grating.

    Absolutely loving it, I've watched about half of it so far. The Yogurt episode was hilarious and brilliant. A common theme I've noticed is that they depicting the failures in humanity and how we ultimately ruin things.

    Zima Blue and Good Hunting have been the two sofar that have left a quite a unexpected mark on me.
