I love a good science fiction show. Unfortunately, Altered Carbon is just that. It’s a good show. It’s not great. And when there’s so much great television out right now, I’m afraid it will easily slip out of the radar.
I love Joel Kinnaman and I’m glad he’s a lead of his own show but it won’t bring him to super stardom, which is what I’m hoping for for his career. I love it when the show delves into philosophical and metaphysical subjects but I find that the nudity and sex gratuitous and badly shot. It isn’t sensual at all, which I can understand in some scenes, but the other scenes needs it.
I love the homage to the production design of Blade Runner though.
