Review of Altered Carbon

First off, this show probably isn't for everyone. There is a lot of R rated stuff going on. If that doesn't bother you, then keep reading and get ready for quite the ride!

This series, in my opinion, is science fiction at its finest. It depicts a world that is cold and cruel, one that is far different than what we know, but plausible as being our future. Each episode builds on the other-no filler episodes here;  with new information for the viewer and twists as well.

One of the main themes explored in the show is the fact bodies are worn like clothes. Humans are not limited to their birth bodies anymore, and therefore, can live forever. Just let that sink in...yeah..pretty cool right? Yeah...

Unless it causes a world such as this story suggests. Only the top 1% of the 1% can afford to live forever, while the rest of the "grounders" tough out life.

I'm not big into long lengthy reviews, so just know that if you are a fan of science fiction then you have no reason not to watch this! If your not into sci-fi but have an open mind, and love mind-bending and challenging stories then this would be for you as well! You can find this show on Netflix.
