I had heard about this series from Netflix, but was unsure of what it was all about. Now, I am absolutely all-in on "Altered Carbon" coming February 2.
I'm going to warn you, even for a science fiction geek like me, the official synopsis is confusing, BUT after reading it and watching the trailer, it makes MUCH more sense and I can't wait to see it.
Check it out...
"ALTERED CARBON is set in a future where consciousness is digitized and stored in cortical stacks implanted in the spine, allowing humans to survive physical death by having their memories and consciousness "re-sleeved" into new bodies. The story follows specially trained "Envoy" soldier Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman "Suicide Squad", "The Killing), who is downloaded from an off-world prison and into the body of a disgraced cop at the behest of Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy "The Following"), a highly influential aristocrat. Bancroft was killed, and the last automatic backup of his stack was made hours before his death, leaving him with no memory of who killed him and why. While police ruled it a suicide, Bancroft is convinced he was murdered and wants Kovacs to find out the truth."
