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.
