Altered Carbon
I’ve watched most of it over this weekend and have really enjoyed it. The production values are fantastic, ten years ago a blockbuster cyberpunk film wouldn’t look as good as this show.

They’ve changed a fair bit from the books but the core of the story is still all there. The world feels real and very gritty. There are naked bodies on display every episode but rather than feeling erotic it all gives a sickening impression at how this society sees people as meat. Something that backs up the central technology of the show; mindstate chips that allow people to transfer to new bodies (the rich keeping vaults of clones with expensive remote back ups while the poor can spend years in a queue until a crappy criminal body becomes available).
OA Wish list:
  1. DNI
  2. Internal medical system
  3. A dormbot, because domestic chores suck!
