Altered Carbon

‘ALTERED CARBON’

“In the distant future, human consciousness can be digitized and downloaded into different bodies. Brought back to life after 250 years by Laurens Bancroft the richest man on Earth, ex-Envoy soldier Takeshi Kovacs must solve Bancroft’s attempted murder for the chance to live again in a world he doesn’t recognize.

Having seen a couple of the trailers for this show I think I love it already and it’s not released until 2nd February. I can only rely so far upon other reviews and here’s a snapshot of what Den Of Geek had to say:

“With plenty of action and even a bit of humour — you’ll want to buckle up for some dark comedy during Takeshi’s visit to an artificial intelligence hotel in the premiere — Altered Carbon is the perfect television entry point for cyberpunk fans. Although the series sometimes feels more like a feature movie drawn out over its ten hours, the world is a joy to explore during that time. The characters are immediately engaging despite a lack of complexity, a fault that could be remedied by a second season.”

Let’s see if I agree or not but I am very hopeful.

THE SONGS

The show is described a lot as cyperpunk so the songs should match that high octane futuristic feel of the episodes. The song from the trailers which could also be the theme song is ‘The Beginning Of The End‘ by Nine Inch Nails.

I’m so looking forward to hearing what other songs can be added to the list!

Black Mirror

‘Black Mirror’

A British science fiction anthology television series created by Charlie Brooke. It centres on dark and satirical themes that examine modern society, particularly with regard to the unanticipated consequences of new technologies. Episodes are standalone works, usually set in an alternative present or the near future.

Season 4 of Black Mirror has just been released on Netflix and it has certainly been worth the wait!

My Amazon Fire TV Stick has been put into overdrive as I have binged watched all the new episodes already.

LOVED them.

THE SONGS

As well as being a brilliant series the soundtrack is incredible! There are fantastic songs played during every episode.

There are quite a lot of great instrumental pieces of music in the episodes but I’ve decided not to include these in my playlist but you can listen to them here.

…and more importantly I urge you to check out the show on Netflix!

Dark

‘DARK’

Missing children, supernatural events and family secrets turn a small German town upside down, echoing tragedies of the past.

There’s an awesome new Netflix Original available that involves time travel AND the 80s so I was sucked right in – big time!

Sucked right in despite the fact that it’s actually a German production and I had to watch it with English subtitles.

I am so glad that I did though and my Amazon Fire TV Stick has been put into overdrive as I have been binge watching the show.

LOVE it.

THE SONGS

The theme song or ‘opening song’ is called ‘Goodbye’ from Apparat.

One of my favourite songs featured is ‘Familiar’ by Agnes Obel.
