The first season was interesting. More of a hard boiled detective story with sci-fi trappings.

I think Anthony Mackie will do a good job.

EXCELLENT! Thanks for the heads up! I had kinda forgotten about that show. I enjoyed season 1, so I guess I'm gonna have to binge watch it to remember WTH happened...

I loved the concept, so different than the usual sci-fi stuff out there. A bit Bladerunner-ish too which is a plus in my book.

I thought season 1 was great, but the ending felt so rushed and cobbled together.

I'd have to watch it again probably.

I agree with the Blade Runner comparison. A little to brutal for my tastes. I found them switching from language to language really annoying, but solved that problem by turning on the closed caption.

It's got a little Doctor Who going too in that the bodies change but it's still the same person inside.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them.'

I wanted to like the show and gave Season 1 a fair shot but bailed after a few episodes. So I'll take a pass.

I really liked season 1. So going to likely binge season 2 if I have time.




Train how you intend to Fight

Thanks. I like good sci-fi. While I wouldn't put Altered Carbon up there with the best of them, it was good enough to watch the entire first season. I'll sit down and check out season 2.




You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

Read the book if you want cobbled together, I thought the TV show did a better job with the schizophrenic story lines. They did have the benefit of hindsight vs the book.
Full disclosure, I watched before reading. If I had read before, I probably wouldn't have watched.

I gotta say.....not as good as Season 1. Not bad, but not as good.

Blade Runner meets John Wick.

I enjoyed both Seasons, but the pace of Season 1 (with 10 episodes) was a bit better.
