Love, Death & Robots: Pop Squad

Love, Death & Robots: Pop Squad

“I remember all these moments because I know I won't have many.”

thought I’d put together a collective log for the new season again, which is only eight episodes compared to the previous 18. I liked this one, Pop Squad, the most together with Snow in the Desert and The Tall Grass. no brainer really because it uses the Blade Runner cyberpunk noir template as a springboard and delivers poignant futurism. overarchingly I find this season rather weak in terms of writing again and most of the episodes struggle to develop much of an impact beyond their immediate scenario, be it through thought, feeling or humor. but gooooosh do they all look gorgeous and I do like the creative direction these  animations have taken under Jennifer Yuh Nelson, who also directed this one. such an impressive display of different styles!
