Re: Altered Carbon

Well I just watched the first episode, and tbh, I'm also very meh.

Dont they have lights in the future ? so dark most of the time, and slow, and aside from a couple of bits, just dull.

Nothing made me think I must see the next episode as soon as I can.
In fact, I'm not really sure when I'll bother, maybe when I'm bored and run out of other stuff to watch.

Re: Altered Carbon

I'm enjoying it. Interesting ideas. The idea of being able to swap bodies. The idea of AIs becoming sentient, realising how badly we treat them (especially those who happily take advantage of the fact they are not living, therefore cannot have rights and do all sorts of perverse stuff to them), then rebelling.

That last one may sound stupid. It is, if you assume that the technology behind AI won't improve much. It will, and given 3 or 4 decades, the character you shoot in the current GTA, Farcry or Call of Duty (or whatever FPS franchise exists) at the time may actually qualify as sentient.

Look how far Games have come since the 70s and 80s, and the march of technology has accelerated since.

Re: Altered Carbon

exactly, and is very similar to the story arc of the Voyager two parter in season 7 with the holograms and the hirogen. The more autonomous and realistic we try to make AI the more they will start to think for themselves and apply logic/reasoning/morality etc to our behaviour and if they believe we are doing something wrong then why not do something to correct it? After all, we would.

It looks like Netflix has a new hit on their hands. Deadline reports Altered Carbon earned 2.5 million viewers during its first week.
While Netflix doesn’t typically release ratings, Nielsen revealed Altered Carbon garnered 2.5 million viewers during its first seven days on the streaming service. However, the future of the sci-fi series is still up in the air.
Netflix has yet to renew Altered Carbon for a second season and creator Laeta Kalogridis has said she’s unsure how a follow-up would work.

Re: Altered Carbon

Well, since pretty much everything else I watch is on a break atm, I got round to watching a few more - up to Ep 7 now.

I think its got better than the initial impression E1 gave.
I'm still a bit meh about it, but its held my interest enough that I'll watch the last three.

Not sure if I'll get chance now though until next week.
