Love, Death & Robots

This is a collection of short movies that cover a wide spectrum of genres and a wild ride for the curious spirit, and they include action-packed thrillers, action-comedy, science fiction, and horror. This is a world-class cutting edge thriller animated series brought forth by equally talented animators.


If you are one of those who just can’t miss a great psychological thriller, then this one’s for you. The series follows on the premise of the old adage ‘When in Rome be like Romans’ meaning to catch a criminal often requires the authorities to get into the criminal’s mind and plot a course of action to nab the bad guy.

Holden Ford plays a role similar to that of an agent in the FBI’s Behavioral Sciences Unit, wherein he tries to get into the heads of these violent criminals and understand the reason why they do and what they do.


It is a thriller series created by Bill Dubuque of ‘The Accountant’ fame. It is superbly done, and the creative and cinematographic genius of this person is seen to be believed. It is one of the best-written shows ever.

At its core, it is about a family who has moved to the Ozarks and is forced to reconnect as a result of the breadwinner (Marty Byrde) having messed up a money-laundering scheme.


This show is a blast. It’s riveting and gripping with each episode ending at the right cliffhanger moment, making you come back for the next. It is about an Israeli defense retiree, Doron, who goes back to seek and destroy an enemy who they thought that he was already dead.

Doron plans to eliminate this terrorist only to realize that his own cover is blown and that sets into motion a series of events filled with plots and subplots. A must watch series for any thrill-seeking fan.

Peaky Blinders

It is about an urban street gang set in Birmingham that operated in the 19th century. It is a cat and mouse game where the dangerous Tommy Shelby leading the Peaky Blinders gives Inspector Chester Campbell a run for his money.

If you are a part of the ever-growing crime loving audience and want to watch the best British Gangster & Criminal series, then this suits you. It’s a treat all the way, and though it is about crime. Don’t miss this one.

Money Heist

This is probably one of the best thriller series of all time that I have laid my eyes on. It is about a professor who meticulously plans a money heist going to absolute extremes to plan every detail of the heist. Each episode is gripping, and all actors play their parts equally well.

The plan is to pull off the biggest heist in recorded history by printing money. The storyline is perfect. A final word of advice, if you have just place for one crime thriller in your schedule, mark this one for sure.


This is a thriller docudrama wherein Errol Morris of Oscar-winning fame takes us on a journey picking the details of the 1953 death of scientist and CIA employee Frank Olson.

It is about the controversy of Olson’s death, which was initially reported as a suicide, but later in 1975 was found to be a top-secret experiment.

It is a story involving allegations of biological warfare, LSD spiked liqueurs for volunteers of deadly experiments, Project MKUltra, and mind control. Catch it at your own risk as you may come open to some dark secrets of the government.


In my personal opinion, after having watched tons of Horror thrillers, I have reached the conclusion that this is one genre where fantastic shows are far and few in between.

Kingdom strikes all those checklist boxes when it comes to looking for a great Horror thriller. It is Gong Yoo’s masterpiece and definitely worth a watch. It is about a Prince trying to save his people against evil and plans of evil.
