Love, Death & Robots: Automated Customer Service

Love, Death & Robots: Automated Customer Service ★★★

"The Terminator" meets "Hardware" as an old granny is trapped in her apartment with a cleaning bot that has gone on the fritz. She has to try and evade the death machine whilst dealing with an obnoxious automated customer service.

Things go back and forth as she and her puppy try to deactivate the bot. One minute she has the upper hand before it then swings to the bots favour. It's a pretty standard technology gone wrong story and it doesn't offer too much. The ending is by far the best part of this short and it makes the story worthwhile. However, the ugly, and I mean truly ugly facial animation in conjunction to a generic story was a weak start to this series.
