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.

      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.

      Hang in there girl!  I know how rough the anticipation can be. Put on some chill tunes and take it easy or pick up an axe and chop out some licks to take the edge off of that nervous energy. Hope your day is wonderful! Hugs!

      I briefly scanned a journal article while waiting for an old acquaintance, sometime late last year (sorry, I can't remember the journal title, but it was in the area of social psych), that indicated that the whole notion of so-called "trigger-warnings" was inherently unhealthy, tending to enable avoidant-behaviours & a few other undesirable traits.    I'm kinda inclined to agree.

      Good Morning Shay, I hope today is magic for you !

      @Carolyn Marie, Thanks! Hugs!     @KayC, Thanks! The session went well. I have a great rapport with my therapist and she is super supportive and more importantly, is there to listen to me, ask me good questions that make explore my thoughts and feelings and give me the tools to help myself, which she nails. Hugs!

      Hi Rory! and Welcome! You definitely found a great community to join. We're all at different stages ... for me, a very late in life awakening and just getting out of the starting gate.  Definitely looking forward to whatever you have to share❣️

      Squire was a lead player and was amazing. One other underrated bass player I  think is John Entwhistle from the Who. If you really listen to, his was excellent.   A great young Australian girl,bass player i really love in the past 5-10 years is Tal Wilkenfeld. Shay
