Altered Carbon Ep 1

Hot on the heels of watching the first episode. Have not yet fully digested who’s who and why. My Book Jacket impression would be Surrogates* meets Blade Runner.

I find it so facinating that no matter how neat, clean, meaty or gross the tech is made to look its always about human memory and emotion.

Certainly going to watch more.

* I have to cop to never reading/seeing Surrogates and only have the IMDB glancing pass description to go on. But the concept of uploading conscienceness is not new. I always default back to Lazurus Long kind of thinking, although also tickles from ‘Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom’ by Cory Doctorow
