    "It is one of the best Netflix Originals I have ever watched. Mixed with futuristic sci-fi & action drama.It has a very interesting and deep plot. The series takes place over 350 years in the future,in the year 2384.In the future, a person's memories can be decanted in a disk-shaped device called a cortical stack, which is implanted in the vertebrae at the back of the neck. These storage devices are of alien design and have been reverse engineered and mass produced. Physical human or synthetic bodies called "sleeves" are used as vessels that can accept any stack. Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman), a political operative with mercenary skills, wakes up 250 years after his previous sleeve is terminated. He is given the choice to either spend the rest of time in prison for his crimes, or to help solve the murder of Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy), one of the wealthiest men in the settled worlds.Takeshi was the sole surviving soldier of those defeated in an uprising against the new world order 250 years prior."

    "Altered Carbon is a fine show, and I can't quite think of another way to put it. I didn't hate it as I watched, and I didn't love it either, I just sort of watched and it was fine. I didn't find much I'd call spectacular or peaking of interest. Frankly, for me, it was a forgettable watch that didn't offer much in the way of fresh or new takes on the sci-fi future based setting or detective genres it resides in. Watch if you want, but if you don't i wouldn't say you were missing anything."
