Anyone else watching this?
Saw the first episode. I am digging the concept, but I really don't like the lead actor and am concerned the show will be a bit thin on script.
Started watching the first episode. Turned it off to watch Black Mirror. I'll jump back into it after wrapping up Black Mirror.
watched the first episode last night. I like where it could go.... unless it starts to totally suck I will finish out the season... have to say it has piqued my interest
There's no wrapping up involved in Black Mirror; they're unconnected mini-stories. I saw one, and loved it, but it didn't make me rush right into the next episode for this very reason.
Altered Carbon could have been so, so much better. That said, I loved it at first. I didn't have issues with the lead actor, though I can see where some might have, and the supporting cast is solid. I also think the writing was strong early, with a heavy tech-noir vibe. Loved the world, the mythology, the visuals, and all that jazz. Then, a little over halfway through, I think it was...the writers went loopy. It's like they congregated, brainstormed to come up with the worst possible ideas, and ran with them. Just, like...epic levels of writing suck. They also deus-ed the eff out of that old machina, let me tell you.
Enjoyable, for the most part, but it nosedived in quality. I hope they revisit the world and characters.
I finished the series last night. it was worthy of watching... but about halfway through they slipped into "weekly cop drama"... then they jumped over to far out sci-fi..
is there going to be another season or was it a one season show? Hard to tell, the story wrapped, and dude has to give up his sleeve...so...??
would be interesting if they ran a different "star" every season... the universe has lots of potential.
I love Black Mirror and I actually wanted to rush into the next episode to see what else can be twisted. Lol.
