I have just finished watching the first season of Altered Carbon on Netflix. I didn’t know much about the show going in to it. I just wanted to watch some sci-fi, and thought I would give it a go. Well, what a pleasant surprise it turned out to be. I thought it was brilliant. I urge anyone that is a sci-fi fan to watch it.
I was very impressed by the visuals and cinematography. I am now really looking forward to reading the book that it was based on. Heavily inspired by movies like Bladerunner, and cyberpunk novels like Neuromancer and Snow Crash, the world building and the character development is excellent.
Word of warning, the show has lots full frontal nudity and graphic violence. If that doesn’t bother you, then this is an impressive show and worth your time.
Note: This thread is now open to spoilers for those that wish to discuss the show in more detail.
