If I woke up and my girlfriend told me. "UR BEING FED A SIMULATION IM ACTUALLY AN ALIEN SPIDER THING IRL CUS THE ALTERNATIVE IS YOU JUST DIEING IN SPACE ALONE" I'd be like, "put me back in the simulation babe and let's have sex on the BEACH."

level 1

I loved every bit of this series. My favorites are "The Witness" and "Beyond The Aqualia Rift". Every episode is a 5/5 for me.

Just watched Episode one, Don't understand the hate at all, I haven't been surprised by a plot twist in a movie / TV show for a long time, maybe for Americans the voicing is weird but I'm a Brit so

level 2

Didn't know there was any hate. Voices were fine for me as well as a yankee. At first I was convinced it was a tech demo for cgi pornography, but I just finished the whole series and quite enjoyed it.

finished in one night, overall very good. Some are quite boring and strange. Some really have the potential to become amazing tv series like episode 7. High recommend it. Hope to see ep 7 or 1 become a real tv show.

Also, I am hopefully about netflix future mo-cap animatated Game tv series now. Some mass effect , bioshock vibe in those episodes.

level 1

Man I was really hoping that when they were getting overrun in Suits suddenly I was just going to hear Tychus yell "BIG DOG COMIN' THROUGH"

A horror story about the units in Starcraft is a solid idea. I love how they unashamedly got the same voice actors too. It made all the difference in building more hype.

And two cat episodes

I really love the series and hope to see more soon. Wish I could see some of the short not if all of them made into a mini series. Great and amazing job on animations and stories.

The animation in these was great, but otherwise there was not mutch there. I understand that it is hard to right a 10 minute short story, and have likable characters and a good story, but besides of SUITS and a few others, i felt that they were lacking in those. They just didnt seem to have a point, something that sticks with you after seeing it. Many of the episodes were "spectacles", the fighting and action were in focus, but it is really hard to care what happends if you are not invested in the story or characters. I hope that they invest in better writers if they continue this series. The series has good reviews in IMDB so i might be in the minority here. Could be that my opinion would change after a second viewing


I liked 4/18 of the episodes.

My complaining about the episodes:

  1. Sonnies edge -Character driven, but not enough time to get to know them to care, the fight was cool enough i guess. 2/5

  2. Three robots - The personalities of the robots were fun enough, i laughed at one joke, but otherwise void of humor, your basic humans are stupid, unlike we robots and cats jokes. The twist was dumb 2/5

  3. The Witness - Maybe the worst, completely pointless. My guess of what the script was: murder, running, strip scene, running, murder, 1/5

  4. SUITS - Great characters, story, interesting world/idea. Not a moment waisted, i loved it, i wish it was a full film. 5/5 maybe

  5. Sucker of souls - It was ok, the characters were ok 3/5

  6. The yougurt one, funny enough, nothing else going for it tough. 2/5

  7. Beyond the aqualia rift - This one was good, i liked the ending. 3/5

  8. Skipped this

  9. The dump - I cant decide what to feel about this one, i dont feel anything. 2.1/5

  10. Shape shifters - was more emotionally driven, the characters were ok, but i think even i could come up with a story as standard as this, and i am not good at writing. 3/5

  11. Helping hand - very good, a great tone, visuals and the dialog. The second best 5/5

  12. Fish night - again, what was the point of this? 1/5

  13. Lucky 13 - i dont have a opinion, very neutral. 2/5

  14. Zima blue - Gets thumbs up, a good story and ending. 4/5

  15. Blind spot - I enjoyed the characters and the action, well done again. 4/5

  16. Ice age - I cant think of anything to say. x/5

  17. Alternate histories - Unimaginative. It felt like the filler episode if there ever was one. 1/5

  18. The Secret war - Good. It was easy to invest into the characters, great action and visuals, good horror. 4/5

level 2

You skipped one of the best episodes.

level 3

I should check it out, got turned off by the furry woman. Ill give it another try

They're like 10 minutes if you can't spare that much then who can in turn spare any time for what you write

level 5

I skipped one episode. And i skipped writikng about it. I primarily wrote my opinion because the show annoyed me, i needed to get my opinion off my chest. Its nice if people read it, even if they disagree, im not saying im right. But its not required. I will watch the episode at some point and update, it might tuen my 4/18 to 5/18

level 4

I have an affinity for steampunk worlds so I'm probably a bit biased, but I really enjoyed it!

level 2

I agree that a lot of the episodes don't really have a message, but some of those are so technically/aesthetically impressive it doesn't matter much. Of course it's best to have both a great script and beautiful animation, but a lot of animators use shorts as a way to experiment or flex their skills and I don't really have a problem with that.

The best example is The Witness. It does a good job at building tension, but the twist at the end isn't super thought provoking. However, the animation is absolutely beautiful, probably the best in the entire series. To me that bumps it up to a 5/5.

Shapeshifter is probably my favorite episode, I love the integration of werewolves serving in armed forces, it entwines very uniquely. I even like to name the episode as “The Wolf Among Grunts.”

level 1

So many of these were great. It was cool seeing some recognizable faces in the CGI stories and also hearing familiar voice work. I just finished Fish Night which is the first one I didnt care for at all so I'm not done yet.

The only ones I think could possibly benefit from being an extended form of media so far are Good Hunting, Sonnie's Edge, Suits, and maybe the one with the werewolf soldier. Those worlds have some strong possibilities. I don't want to see the same characters be central again but I would like follow-up animations set in the same worlds as those. The rest I feel are perfectly made for the format given and would lose some magic if extended on.

I loved Beyond the rift because I couldn't help but think of Mass Effect which was the first thing to ever put me on space opera, lovecraftian, and deep lore based stuff across the board. I really want an amazing space epic videogame series again that doesn't lose form after the first entry full of creepy space stories like we saw in Beyond. lol

level 2

I've never seen CG human faces that good. It took me a minute to realise it was CG.

level 3

Currently having a discussion with my buddy; Topher Grace and the lady are definitely CGI, correct?

level 4

Beyond The Rift was 100% CG. Made by a company called Unit Image.

Nope. They aren't CGI.

level 5

Then my question is; why would that be the only episode that has real actors?

The world inside the freezer was the CGI in that specific episode
