Storyline

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, who is downloaded from an off-world prison and into a combat ready sleeve at the behest of Laurens Bancroft, 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.

Season 1 amazing. Season 2.. piss poor
28 February 2020 | by gmbossjSee all my reviews

What is wrong with netflix?

They take a great series - and instead of building on it, they completely tank it. Who are these writers and directors that Season 2 had ANY claim to even being the same QUALITY as season 1.

What a complete and utter let down.

They should be fired.
