Altered Carbon

As long as we recognize Lucas is washed up and most TV sucks, we'll all get along fine.

Yay! Netflix.

Having only watched one episode, this is going to be hard for me to sum up.

- Future sci-fi.

- Has borrowed elements both from Demolition Man, and a sci-fi book I read by a guy named Hamilton in which people commonly "rebirth" themselves by backing up copies of themselves (eliminates perma-death, unless the offsite backup gets destroyed), and allows for eternal life, by implanting their consciousness into a fresh clone every so often. This show has that.

- Elements of Blade Runner... the rabble's existence looks kind of bleak.

- There's a murder-mystery.

- There's a conspiracy.

- And there's lots of boobies.

So yeah, not sure how to describe this one, yet, except to say I'll be watching the second episode.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

Finished S1.

It started getting better half way through, once dots started getting connected. Prior to that, it's just a bunch of mysterious unconnected dots, and I don't really like shows like that. Just give me an interesting, straight narrative with a beginning, middle, and end.

Tons of boobs and weird sex.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

Spoiler I guess.




























There were already some creepy implications when a daughter could slip into her mom's clone because the sex felt better.

Yeah, more brutal in the book.

I've watched the first 2 eps. Some changes from the book, but mostly following the same.

So much skin.

Now that I've watched it... WAY more brutal in the book.

Hmmm. Big change in the middle of the series from the book, at least conceptually different. Playing out simiarly.
