Altered Carbon
(02-09-2018, 12:19 AM)Cray Wrote: The series drove that home in episode 1 when with just a few lines: the 7-year old girl getting re-sleeved in a 60-year old body, crying to her shocked parents as the protagonist walks by.

No kidding. That was a brutal, tiny inclusion that spoke volumes. Overall I think the show did an amazing job at adapting the book with things like this given that so much of the book's text is the protagonist's internal monologue. Introducing the idea that he hallucinates old acquaintances due to personality fraging, moving minor characters into support roles and slice of life scenes like this are all really good at conveying the same knowledge and feeling.
OA Wish list:
  1. DNI
  2. Internal medical system
  3. A dormbot, because domestic chores suck!
