Since its origins as a monthly DVD delivery service, Netflix has always had a penchant for pipedream-esque business plans. And, when the media company announced in 2017 that they wanted original content to make up half of their streaming library, people were surprised, and curious. But they put their money where their mouth was–investing $8 billion towards commissioning and producing original series and movies—and the rest is history, according to Esquire.

As 2022 begins, Netflix will release a series of new movies and original TV series that will bring you exciting experience, including dramas, thrillers, horrors, action and romance in one bag.

In a quiet residential area, four domestic robots suddenly decide to take their master's hostage in their own home. Locked together, a not-quite-so-blended family, an intrusive neighbor, and her enterprising sex robot are now forced to put up with each other in an increasingly hysterical atmosphere! While, outside, the Yonyx, the latest generation of androids, are trying to take over. As the threat draws closer, the humans look elsewhere, get jealous, and rip into each other under the bewildered eyes of their indoor robots.

Maybe it’s the robots who’ve got a soul – or not!
