Altered Carbon: Netflix series


After 250 years on ice, a prisoner returns to life in a new body with one chance to win his freedom: by solving a mind-bending murder.

Here's a little more info for those deciding whether or not to give this show a chance.

Re: Altered Carbon: Netflix series

I've watched the first episode and thought it was merely OK.

There are certain things that don't make sense to me that I assume are better explained in the books.

1) Why are backups of stacks soooo expensive? It just seems like a lame plot device to allow consciousnesses to die permanently
2) Why do they use human bodies(sleeves) to place them in? If you have the technology to extract everything in your brain, they'd surely be able to make human like bodies as well.
3) The world really doesn't seem overly advanced when all things are considered - this is likely a budgetary issue. But it makes the show seem a bit unambitious

Watched ep 1. Pretty sure most of what's going on went over my head. Basically though, it's a futuristic murder mystery with a heavily influenced sci-fi element. I'm not fully bought in but I like the actors and the genre so I'll give it a go for a bit.

Re: Altered Carbon: Netflix series

I watched the entire season yesterday, and I enjoyed it. I definitely got confused at various points, but I think that was the intention. If you don't focus too much on the inconsistencies, it's really enjoyable.

Re: Altered Carbon: Netflix series

Through episode 7, echo the "picks up steam" sentiment.
