Altered Carbon

What do you all think of this series who have watched it?
And who is/are your favourite character(s)?

I think it was pretty neat, at least season 1. Recently season 2 came out and I'm already halfway watching it.
With it being set in the distant future, and the possibility to be in a different body (and without surgery) actually might fit this place quite well, I'd say!

sorry if i'm resurrecting a dead thread but i love altered carbon! season two went in some different directions, and wasn't as much my thing, but still a fun time - and very beautiful aesthetically! i so wish stack technology was real. the season one scene where [spoiler?] Elizabeth reshapes her synth sleeve was a profound experience.

 

i have a thing for robots and AIs, so i'm a Poe fan through and through. who's your favourite?

I thought the series was pretty good. Read the books a long time prior to the show and really enjoyed them. 
 

I also really enjoyed the portrayal of Poe in the series.

Now I have to apologise for resurrecting a dead thread xD 

Didn't even realise anyone responded!

I also have to go with Poe actually. He has quite the personality!

 

If only sleeve technology was real...

Oh, I didn't realise there were books! Who's the writer, if I may ask? 

 

Would you say Poe is your favorite character then or someone else?

In the tv series, Poe for sure. In the books, probably Kovacs.

@SaraAW Thank you! 


Gotcha, I might read the books someday and see how they differ from the series. I always like comparing stuff like that.

      And for ALL of us ladies - my favorite slide player who won the best slide player of the year 6 years running in Guitar Magazine and the retired her because they wanted someone else to win - it's a rare song I heard her do live in the 70's and loved the song like forever.   https://youtu.be/fD6ued71jqE

      Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! From what I've seen so far on this forum you all seem like lovely people. As far as what Erikka said about my age, when I came out I really felt like I had no other choice if I wanted to keep moving forward in my life. I know not everyone has the same support network and resources to transition while they're younger, and I recognize the privilege I have in that sense. Sometimes I find myself wishing I had come out sooner, but doing so won't change the hand I was dealt. I look up to all of you no matter when you came out, because that takes courage no matter the age.

      Hei alle Chris Squire was awesome. I saw Yes on their Fragile  tour in 1972, oddly enough they were the opening act for Black Sabbath. On the subject of great bassists, Greg Ridley, Spooky Tooth and Humble Pie fame, was so solid on laying down some really great bar band bass tracks especially with Humble Pie. Ronnie Lane was another great  bar band bassist. Laying down a great foundation is the make or break factor of a band.

      Velkommen Rory This is a great support to have in corner. You will find many ideas, informations and opinions here. Many of us are here by way of Jackie Rabbit's vids. I envy your age for transitioning. For many of us life got in our way and it was not possible to get here until later and late in our lives. So read, comment and post. Velsignelser Erikka

      I got the first one with my ex's blessing. When decided just one ear looked unbalanced and I wanted to have a more feminine look, my ex blew a gasket, She said that with an earring in both ears I would be competing with her  femininity, but while on a business trip I got the other ear pierced and reluctantly accepted it. The second set of holes I had wanted almost as soon as I got the second ear pierced. I waited until several milestones had been reached, one of those was when I finally and completely declared myself to be unapologetically trans.

      Thanks Rory! Hugs!

      Entwhistle had to be great to keep up with and not fade into the background when competing on stage with Moon and Townshend.   Don't know how I hadn't heard of Wilkenfeld before, just listened to a couple of her tunes on Spotify. Digging the sound.

      It's always exciting to hear when people have the support of their family. Even if they're not perfect all the time it really goes a long way in making it easier to transition. Good luck if/when you tell others and I can't wait to hear more about your journey!

      Well, birthdays can be unpleasant in any number of ways.  I've never viewed my birthday as being something to celebrate, but it had nothing to do w/ gender identity.  For me it simply marked a day when I became another year older, and a year closer to death.  I now have a related, but different perspective----however, that perspective has even less appreciation for my birthday.
