Just watched the series on Netflix tonight.  Awesome storyline, great effects.  Loved it!  Hope they kick off Season 2 next year.  Based on the trilogy here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/40445.Altered_Carbon

It was good.  Looking forward to seeing how they adapt the second and third books.

Hmm...been looking at that but have been hesitant to give it a go.

 

Looks like I'll try the waters on this one based on you guys liking it :thumb:

Yes I loved it too.  For me it was like Blade Runner meets Game of Thrones! :cool:   Great sci-fi combined with violence and hot babes.  :) 

 

Looking forward to S2 if they make it.

Geez! talking about dangling a carrot!

 

Two of my favorite things :) Edit: as in two of my favorite movies and series.

I'll have to wait, my wife is watching all of the Flash at the moment, I think it is 6 seasons and she has just started season 3.  :(

If I watch it on my PC she will ask why I didn't wait and watch it with her.

I watched all of season 1 over the weekend.  Will watch it again with the missus when her reality dating shows are over in the coming months.

Yes Brilliant show.  Agree very Blade Runnerish

Morgan's Kovacs trilogy starts strongly with Altered Carbon and gets better with every book. It's a superb achievement. Why he later tried his hand at fantasy, I have no idea. Mind you, after selling the rights to AC he never had to work again.

 

I have been looking forward to seeing Altered Carbon filmed or televised, and the positive reviews here encourage me further. But I am squeamish, I watch so little TV that violent scenes stay etched in my mind: so I avoid that sort of thing. What's the view on the violence in AC?

Episode 5 in - not much violence. Some nudity - full frontal male if you are easily offended. 

 

I seem to recall Robocop being more bloody. The original, not the Joel one

 

I know everyone sees the Blade Runner reference - but I kinda see it as the Elijah Baley for the new generation. 

 

On the face of it, the Elijah Baley stories were cop stories - but with an interesting take on ethics and morality and of science itself. Really loved how the Empire and Foundation series eventually tied in with the Baley ones.

Okay, that looks like it'll be worth a watch.

 

Plus a bit of NIN in the trailer never hurts.
