Altered Carbon (Netflix)

 

Alicia and I sit down and watch the 10 episode sci-fi series Altered Carbon which blew us away with the concept and new way of seeking immortality in the future.  Outstanding tech and visual sets.  This is one on the most interesting and controversial shows dropped on Netflix.

More than 300 years in the future, society has been transformed by new technology, leading to human bodies being interchangeable and death no longer being permanent. Takeshi Kovacs is the only surviving soldier of a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order.

"Altered Carbon" is based on Richard K. Morgan's cyberpunk noir novel of the same name
