LOVE, DEATH + ROBOTS: My Favorite Episodes

Created by Tim Miller, LOVE, DEATH + ROBOTS is 18-episode animated Netflix series for adults that debuted on March 2019. The first seasons features stand alone episodes all under 20 minutes long. A different team worked on each episode resulting in a variety of stories and animation styles. I absolutely loved the first season as a whole.

An Ode to Stephen King’s Carrie

I used to hate reading books. This, despite my mom’s best efforts to get me into the habit during my elementary years. She bought me Roald Dahl’s children’s books, The Chronicles of Narnia book set, among other books. She even bought me a bookshelf! But it was Stephen King’s Carrie that finally got me into reading.
